    I walked past EB Games here in adelaide (south australia) today and I saw a giant banner advertising a special PS3 deal:

    "$699 with a trade-in of a PS2 or Xbox console + 20 games"

    WHAT?! so if I were to hand over a PS2 or Xbox with TWENTY GAMES, a PS3 will STILL cost me almost $700!!?!?!?!?!?!?

    surely. SURELY i mis-read the sign.

    Can someone confirm this? how much is a PS3 in australia without trade-in for crying out loud?!

    That's absolutely outrageous.
    The EB in Cleveland has the same ad.
    But on the link it's only $599.
    I'm confused.

    Because that was the rough release date pricing for the Australian Ps3..

    Thats merely an assumption, the guy from cleveland said he saw the same ad as well. So you dont really know, your assuming.

    Yellow Wii. Thanks, im glad fanboys find me annoying. I dont start fights with anyone but i will respond when people quote me. If I bother you, then its probably because you are easily bothered. That would be something you need to work on.

    =)

    Sorry but, your calling other people fanboys? People like you pop up every once and awhile, too bad you dont leave as easily as you come though. Learn to be a bit Neutral with the consoles bub (of course you can dislike one more then another), you might be liked more.

    And the Assumption is most likely correct, unless there is another location you can think of where the price is around $999.

    Anyways time to go offline. Bye
