    So I got the itch to play metal gear solid 4, and sold a junker supra i had in backyard for 600 bucks.

    So im going to buy a ps3, but what stores have the best deals?

    I plan on getting the MGS4 80 gb bundle, unless you guys know a cheaper route? But i also know some stores give free blu ray movies or other incentives to purchase?

    So which is the best deal?

    Thanks guys!

    I'd be surprised if you can find the MGS bundle at retail, they pretty much sold out completely on release.

    oh the magic of oklahoma........ lol

    we got a whole pallet full sitting at my wal mart


    besides i thought that the MGS4 bundle wasnt limited, Just the special gunmetal PS3 version. I thought they just sold bundle systems as an incentive to buy bigger hard drives, like the motor storm one

    when did the 100 dollar giftcard offer expire? Is it still good?

    EDIT: also which systems are backwards compatible? A google search brings up 1 yr old ign articles, so i need to know about current systems

    thanks!

    The 80 GB has limited BC. 40gb has none. if you can find a 60 GB that one is the best BC wise.

    i cant seem to find a 60 gig anywhere online.......

    and i heard the 20gb's actually have ps2 hardware instead of emulation, so 100% BC

    Unfortnately they stopped making the 60 a while back replaced with the 80 and even that was D/C til just recently with the MGS4 .... Every now and then you see them on ebay but they usually go fast if there not laughing overpriced.

    60 gigs are not in production anymore. You can only find used once. If it were me, I would probably just get the MGS4 bundle, seems like a good deal and the Dual Shock adds to the experience IMO.

    Good luck, scratch that itch.
