it's gonna come in two packages similar to what xbox 360 did...

i believe a base package would cost around $399 and a premium one will be around $599? not too sure

The less expensive version (I think it might be $499) will be extremely nerfed... smaller HDD, no HDMI support, and several other things. Seems like Sony wants to force users to buy the premium version. I wonder how many of the units slated for the US launch will be the premium version.

buy 2 sell 1 on ebay...most likely it will go for close to double the cost (which is the same thing that happened to the 360) and boom...u got urself a free ps3 =D all in theory tho. if anything it will go above what u paid for which will offset some of the cost of the ps3 u will keep.

you can also sell the box alone and people would still buy it without even checking your description that its just a box.

yea ps3 is overhyped no doubt.

best system ever which wasn't overhyped was dreamcast by far.

even if you spec out the e90 it still sucks? damn
doesn't matter, i'd still drive it. wouldnt that be crazy if like in the updated patch you could install the evotech chip, add breyton, schnitzer aesthetics

I like those screenshots! Square Enix's new "White Engine" for the PS3 is supposed to be able to deliver near-CGI quality real-time rendering!

its not that it sucks. there's just so many fast cars in the game that handles well too. so when you drive the e90 it just feels really slow. its tossable though. just like what the other guy said.

GT4 doesnt have body kits and the upgrades dont show any brand. i havent check the tuner section in the BMW. other brands like honda has their dedicated tuner like mugen, etc... not sure about BMW. i dont remember any.
