not bad, too bad that deal isn't up here, my friend needs a new PS3 cause his old ps3 bluray drive finally busted. I told him I could order in the part and fix it for him but he wants to buy a slim anyways.

Its a nice deal..to think a Wii use to be more than that. Goes to show how waiting is always best if possible. And anyone who'd pick Mortal Kombat over Batman needs to have their face stabbed.

Yeah, have to admit that for someone who doesn't have one yet, that would be tempting.

Well anything electronic goes down over time... you just like to trow jabs about Nintendo / Wii when you can. :p

Also the new MK is suppose to be pretty good. Not awesome but good.

Yeah its a great game. I still play it in short bursts. Ofcourse it stands in no comparison to Arkham City(eventhough they are different genres) but if you already have that game on another platform its still a good deal.

Yeah it will always be cheap towards the end of the gen .. . People must be totally skint if they needed to wait until end of gen prices price drops to jump onboard with the current gen

Not necessarily. Most games are multiplatform anyway. So if you just want to play a console's exclusives these price cuts are actually pretty tempting.

Stroop's point is that you could make due with just one console or the other for the most part, but eventually be swayed to pick up a second one on the cheap in order to play its few exclusives. Owning all the current gen ones is definitely less important/compelling than it was in previous generations since multiplatform development is so commonplace nowadays.

It wasn't meant as a jab. Just kinda eye opening to how low prices can go. But you do make a point. I pick on them waaaay to much.

So true. The cost of PS3 was so outrageous Sony had a little mini campaign trying to break down the PS3's value based on individual futures and functions. So that "when you think about it the PS3 doesn't cost that much money ".
