    Got mah Wii: 2/24/08

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life.

    And that is why I succeed.

    Gosh, Sony is so weird. They lower the price of the version of the PS3 that most people won't buy because it has so few features. If Sony really wanted to copy Nintendo where it hurts, they could lower the PS3 60GB version by $200-$250...but that just won't happen...for years.

    they say its to compete with wii, but its def. to compete with the 360 bundle thing since it found out that the bundle is coming out the same day ps3 is coming out, oh and its only the core 20gb correct? even though like 80% of the PS3s are gonna be the 60gb version.
