Good deal for one. But if you're worried that it will be $400 by the time XIV comes out, you shouldn't be. Sony can't keep the price high that long. Plus they anticipate selling 3 million more PS3s this year than last year. They can't do that w/ out a price cut ;)

With any luck, by the time you can order FFXIV, you'll be able to order it as a package deal with a PS3. Lol.
Fingers crossed anywho.

1 year or more than 1 year left for FFXIV to come out, there's plenty of time for a price cut.

Yes, a price cut is inevitable. And for those of us yet to own a PS3, perhaps they will release a special-edition FFXIV PS3. ;)

It's supposed to fall to a retail price of 299.99 soon for the 80 GB. Hold onto your britches. It'll happen. Sony's just holding out as long as they can.

This is what I am hoping happens. I don't own a PS3, but will consider buying one if it comes packaged with FFXIV.

If I do cave, I'll get mine off ebay, I think they're reliable enough and are going as low as £150 (I don't quite know that in USD, but the RRP here is £300)

That's almost half the price, and there's no way sony would cut it any more then that.

But for those of you who are anti-ebay, I would definately hold off til 2010, there could be a price cut in the works, and there's also news on a slimline model floating around too.

I'll wait a month before game release before I buy the console. I'm hoping for a special FF console edition or package deal.

I've still got the old 20gb PS3 that has the hardware component to play old PS2 games, instead of the new (crappy) software emulator. It's served me well so far, but I'm guessing 20gb won't be nearly enough to play FFXIV on. Oh well, at least I've still got my pc.

If you're afraid of the memory problem, just purchase a memory uprade. You can get 320-500 GB for less than $200.

350 hdd sells for about 109$ in best buy which is more then enough. As for buying on ebay <.<; if a ps3 is lower then 200 got to be something wrong with it.

Ebay link (will be dead if this post is oooold!)

This is a great example of the ebay wonder, it's just over the price I said, but actualy comes with a full genuine warrenty and a 99% seller reputation. I honestly don't get why you wouldn't if you had the money. But I'm not hear to preach the wonders of ebay.
