    Yes I did. A brand new 40GB PS3 is now sitting in the slot in my entertainment center right under my XBox 360. I picked up the Transformers game (because it was Transformers and it was cheap) and NBA Live 08. This thing is teh awesome, but not as awesome as my 360. Heading to the PSN thread to enter my gamertag there. (A wild guess may be right on the money...)

    Congrats dude :)  though don't be surprised if you have a hard time finding any games for it. I also find the 360 is better for gaming overall as well. That being said the PS3 does make a great home entertainment/theater device regardless. The Blu-Ray is great and it plays regular DVD's better then any upconverter I've seen.

    That's primarily the reason I bought it, in order to have a Blu Ray player. Since it was the same price as the cheaper models out there, plus it plays games, I went ahead and sprung for it. May knock me out of going to BotCon this week, but I wasn't excited for this year's con anyway. I'm also glad to know it upconverts DVDs I wasn't aware of that feature.

    Don't worry, guys, I'll still be on my 360 quite a bit. Too many good games on there to not play. :) 

    I did, however, pick up Lair today as well. Looks incredible, can't wait to try it.

    I've heard LAIR blows, but I hope you enjoy it. Add me if you like. Although I know you're a 360 COD4 guy. I've got both also and it's a great dilemma.

    Welcome aboard, suggestion: dont get Blacksite Area 51. If you liked the TF game, youll like The Simpsons game

    Yes, I also have RFOM and Motorstorm. Playing Assassins Creed now and some unreal Tournament 3. A lot of the games I have are on both systems so I can not recommend one over the other.

    I've been mulling it over too.. and I'm waiting for this to be released first. 80 GB PS3, MGS4, and a DS3. Sweet deal, assuming it's still just $499.

    You would be remiss not to get Uncharted. It's PS3 exclusive and it's incredible.

    What's Uncharted about? Haven't heard anything about it before. Oh, and your avatar is awesome!

    PD31, Sorry I haven't been on much lately, but it wasn't because of the PS3. I've just been working a lot of long hours at work--which is mainly why I was able to even afford getting a PS3. I am still on XBL too, especially since I'm on vacation this week. I was on COD4 yesterday for about 3 hours, was hoping some of the crew was on. Unosock was, but everytime he sent me an invite, I was right in the middle of a match. :p  :lol

    uncharted is ok, i think the fact thats its one of the few decent games on ps3 made people love it more than it might have deserved. very decent in everyway, i just felt the gameplay was a little... off.

    just my opinion anyways.
