My friends mom went to wal-mart and got a ps3 in store for my friends little brother.
So I know it can't be that hard to find one around here.
And I agree with Blender. For $600 you can buy a premium xbox360 and a external HD-DVD player. So not only will you get in most cases better graphics, better games, better online enviroment, but you will also get your next gen movie player.
