You spent more money so that you could have the PS3 for the last few years. You could have waited to buy the PS3 until they dropped the price, but you would not have been able to play it obviously. That is what you paid more for. It is not a rip off to have the price dropped.

I love it because it will increase the Userbase of PS3 owners and this will show developers that it IS worthwhile to design games specifically for the PS3. They should have done it sooner, but I cannot complain.

Yep, it's due to the massive amount of traffic due to the 3.0 Firmware and PS3 Slim news hehe.. we are working on sorting it now though.

Ha, That's a hell of an information in here man!

I say it before and I say it now, this is what I call reliable information, well explained and detailed too. Ohh boy, I just hope I get to see one of those ('cause there's no way I'm gonna buy it, it still really ugly to my eyes XD).

I looks a lot more better that the one was shown in the "Philippines Video" but, again, looks really cheap as it is (ahh I still don't like it, reminds me a little the PS2 Slim, which I never bought for the same reason I won't buy this ).

P.D. Is there something wrong with your site, it was giving me a lot of errors, were you improving your site? or...... was it the "PS3 Slim Ghost" ?? ..... jk.

See ya!

Yes, that is the spot, right under the Blu-ray drive.
