Lets see what all this hype is about? Maybe you should have waited until it came out to sell you 360 and to buy one.

You just made a purchase based on sony's hype machine. Congrats.

Honestly I think of it this way, if Im able to get it at launch I'll have at least 2 weeks with it, if I am dissatisfied, I will sell it (and will probably get AT LEAST what I spent on it) and go back to xbox 360...

And how much will you lose by selling and then rebuying the 360?

well considering I sold mine with 3 games (games I stopped playing and 1 controller) for $600 Canadian and the holiday pack right now comes with 2 games (not bad games PGR 3 and Double Agent just added in) for $575 taxes incl. I'll be up net $25.... or if u factor in the third game not much at all.

Hum.. seeing as how the PS3 pre orders are selling well above 1k, I dont see how he can be losing money for trying out the PS3.

Close to 1k for a console? The MSRP of the PS3 is already high enough.. but paying more to get it first.. suck it up and wait a month or 2. Don't be stupid.

Don't be stupid and judge someone on how they spend their money.

To the OP, congrats! As long as you're excited about it and you've not taken food out of your family's mouths by buying it, then good for you.

Well done on the purchase. If you do in fact decide the PS3 is not up to par, you will make your money back and then some. It is assured and the people that say otherwise are being naive or just plain ignorant.

Nope didnt take out of my savings to buy it, but also I should clarify what I paid for

PS3 60gb Console = $659.99 CDN
Resistance: Fall of Man = $69.99 CDN
Blazing Angels = $69.99 CDN

Total = $799.97
+ 14% taxes = 111.99
= 911.97

Just to clarify I did NOT pay over MSRP just had forced to buy 2 games with it for the presale

The price is a little more reasonable before tax. ;)

But you could have just gotten Blazing Angels and a FPS for your Xbox 360. :)
