Default PS3 nearly here, Anyone placed an order?

With, what seems every shop jumping on the band wagon and asking for deposits offering you a PS3 on release date.

How many of you have placed an order since Xmas?

Ive seen a few of the launch titles but Im still waiting to judge the PS3 once I can see it in the flesh or plastic as it was

Very tempted to pick up a Xbox 360 closer to launch date of the PS3 as I reckon shops will pratcally be giving them away

agree with Dave, seems people are getting too excited about this PS3, no doubt its a great console, but the price is just ridiculous imo!! just can't justify paying that for a games console, i'll stick with the PS2 slimline for now, till price comes down a shit load, in a couple of years time!

Until a Final Fantasy game is released i'm leaving it on the shelf, far too much for a semi-flop of a console IMHO.

360 all the way.

PS3 doesnt have Gears of War.

And theres nothing like playing it online and chainsawing away as you hear some annoying american kid crying that hes just about to die.

plus. i cant be arsed to move a controller around to control stuff on screen.
If i wanted that, id get a Nintendo Wii.

That'd be when they re-release it as a slimline version.

you've probably only gonna have to wait 6 weeks after the main launch seeing as the rest of the world would have had the ps3 for early a year. lol

Remember when microsoft first released the original XBOX? cameout at £200 and within weeks it was £150 - Microsoft knew they'd left it too late. I think sony might have the same attitude.

Top advice Ads, Most people get roped into buyin value packs and get aload of stuff the dont need or want and simply get ripped off.

Give about 6months and wait for the better titles to come out and it will be worth it.

The Wii has been out for quite a while now and the selection of games is still far too limited. Also once PS3 is launched PS2 hardware and software will be worth pennies, Places like tesco's and Asdas only seel the current brands ie when the 360 came out they stopped stocking Xbox titles and it will be the same with PS2 stuff.
