^^Good point. If it is the PS4, the prices might fall a bit. Guess I should hold off, but it's gonna' suck not being able to finish up Ni no Kuni over the next few days and even worse if I can't play Metal Gear Rising when it gets here.
TC, Amazon has a deal right now for a 250gb PS3 bundle (comes with 2 games and other crap) for $250, which is a great deal, considering you can just buy a 500gb hard drive for $50 if you really needed it.
Thats not a great deal, thats the normal price...
The 500GB are only $300 and have bundles with games and such.
Sorry for your loss. I just switched out the laser and lens on my launch 60GB PS3 since it was starting to have issues reading Blu-rays but otherwise haven't had any issues with it. *crosses fingers*
I will dread the day if it goes out before I can retire it to the collection. I really loved the backwards compatibility when I first got it but, honestly, I play all my PS 1 & 2 games on my computer now so I don't think it would be as big of a loss as it would have been a few years back.
