    This is great news for me. Sony finally decided to add HDMI output to the $499 PS3. Without it, you couldn't get the full experience of Blu-Ray. Your games and blu-ray films would be coming at 1080p, but your system (without HDMI output) would only send things @ 540p. The whole point of the damn thing costing so much was that you'd be getting a Blu-Ray player as well. With no HDMI you're essentially get DVD player.

    But, Sony fixed that. Now, $499 is a real deal price of a PS3, not the price of some horribly crippled game machine. $499 is still a bit much, but its way better than $599.

    Still, if you want a PS3, and your gonna spend 500, might well spend the 600 and do it up all the way.

    Ya same deal as the 360 package, You're actually getting raped if you by the limited one. Gotta go with premium.

    Word, if your worried about saving 100 bucks thattt bad, you might as well get the 300 dollar xbox360. System wise, games and graphics will be near identical.
