    I dunno, I don't like the way the next gen consoles look on SD TV's, I had to further dent my pocket (I've had the PS3 since launch) when i realized the games looked not so great on my TV. My friend with a 360 did the same. Luckily since he works at an electronics store we got good deals!

    Well... as I've said somewhere else, I just splashed out on a new PSP... so no PS3 for me, I'm a poor little man.

    I could buy one, but I know I would end up buying a 20GB version, when I really want a 99999GB one. Besides, I love WipEout, but I know where my loyalties lie, and that's why I'd rather buy a shiny new guitar than a PS3.
    I need more titles to convince me, but I can't think of another title I love just as much...

    I have a PS3 and can't wait for HD. There might be a divide here I don't think I'd want to play Wipeout on a PSP if I was at home with my PS3 and Wipeout HD which has online multi player.

    Did Sony not stop making the 20 GIG model due to crap sales of it in comparison with the 60 GIG one?

    Of course I am! There's an FAQ that needs writing!

    I've had a PS3 since last Christmas and it's awesome! I can't wait until HD, but what I'm looking forward to most is the next "real" WipEout on the PS3. Can't wait 'til 2008!

    I'll get a PS3 eventually but at the moment it's not looking great. The good stuff is indeed coming and the PS3 itself is impressive but I'll let it ripen some more.

    Cool

    I had to restrain myself from driving to Future Shop on Thursday when I saw the PS3 price had dropped to $550.00 cdn. It was tough. The problem is that I intend to use the PS3 as my up-to-date PC (mainly for web surfing and music storage) since the only games I really get into are of course Wipeout! And so I need an HD monitor to see the YD Linux properly. Which makes the PS3 actually a $1000 purchase for me. Ouch.
    I will try to wait for the *real* next generation Wipeout game to purchase the console.

    I guess ill think about it. But i dont like it.

    Dont get me wrong - i LOVE wipeout - but i really cant justify spending $1200 NZD on a console that i find inferior to a $700 console..

    Sony needs to give me a VERY good reason to stretch that far - WipEout HD isnt enough for me. Sorry guys....

    Waiting tell 2008. I work really hard for my money, I'll enjoy Pulse. When the so called "real" next-generation Wipeout comes out, I'll get the PS3 along with HD then. Pulse should be hard enough to take up my time from Sep. on...

    I think that, with the strong line-up of games for the next months, that the the PS3 is going stronger than it ever has. Sony just need to work out a smart pricing plan. The temporary cut just doesn't do it. They need to price it somewhere in Xbox 360 territory. If they cut the price of the 60 gigger another 50 dollars, the profits for Sony might be immense. If they cut it another 75 dollars... (dreams of the many people who would rush to the nearest Walmart for a 424 dollar PS3.)

    Oh, almost forgot. Also cut the price in Europe and other countries. That would be phenomenal.
