I remember about a month ago I decided to check on ebay to see if 360s were going out yet, and boy, were they. The average price of a 360 on ebay at that point was $750! I said screw that, I'll just wait til the price drops like I did when i got the XBox. The PS3 is supposed to give it real competition when it comes out, so Microsoft will more than likely play it smart and drop their price to what a normal person could afford when the PS3 hits the market. I'll just keep waiting until one "falls off the back of a truck" LOL

God damn people...its a stupid video game system, and probably obsolete as soon as it gets plugged in once you get it home

The only thing im not sure on is my video card so hopefully my laptop will break 2 more times TY bustbuy service plan.

Also I see the xbox 360 dropping in price $50-100 just about a month before PS3 is released and a nother drop in price just before or after the PS3 dose there first price cut. This way they will make the most money and sway more people to the 360
