I guess we won't be seeing an 'ultimate' with an integral HD-DVD player now (for shame..) which means I can safely go for the elite

Arguably this still makes the PS3 a more rounded and better value console, although I still play games more on my 360 right now

If they sort out the three rings of death problem then I might be tempted, I was thinking about it before but this price cut is making in look like a very tempting puchase. Basically it would be for a quick and dirty game fix, I'd still use the PC for real gaming.

What will probably really decide it for me is the wait for the Blue Ray add on to hit the shops, we'll see where they pitch that price.

Lucky I sold my 360 on ebay yesterday (for quite a nice price too). Im firmly in the PS3 camp now... all is bliss :-)

The thought of it dying RROD or otherwise at some point in the future was not a happy thought, plus PS3 seems to have more exclusives coming, plus everything that comes out on 360 is either also available for PS3 or PC. No brainer for me to go with PS3.

And so far so good... UT3, Ratchet and Clank, Burnout, COD4... awesome.

What about the US? I heard that "stuff" would happen once Sony's fiscal year ends this month, but that's just talk so....they do need to drop the price as well to stay competitive.....just too high of a price if you don't use the whole machine for all its worth....if y'know what I mean...

I think you'll find that's 90% of people on xbox live, I play underground and I give as good as I get, I don't give more or less to people of specific accents.
