    Wow, I saw this on amazon. I already own a Premium Xbox 360 and I won't be selling it for an Elite but wow this is a really good deal. Imo, a way better deal than buying a PS3.

    Ok, so I just noticed that there is a mail in rebate for 5 free hi-def movies, but still it's a great deal.

    That is what I like about the 360 - the ability to choose a hi-def drive. What if HD-DVD fails? Then the Xbox 360 isn't screwed because of a lack of support for the drive. Theres not a big deal making the drive built into the Xbox anyways just because the games are on DVD-9.

    All you need is a way to flash the Xbox's drive firmware.

    The only thing good about the separate HD-DVD drive is the fact you can hook it up to a computer.

    On paper, the PS3 is a wayyy better deal than the 360.

    That hi-def bundle is garbage compared to a 60 GB PS3.

    1. The 60 GB PS3 is $500 right now.

    2. Blu-Ray player incl.

    3. You get 5 free Blu-Ray movies also.

    4. Wi-Fi is built-in. 360 - $100

    5. Bluetooth built-in. Someone told me I can use my cell phone bluetooth headset (I have to research that).

    6. It has built-in card readers.

    7. There is no way (barring a miracle) that HD-DVD will overtake Blu-Ray.

    Blu-Ray has more capacity.

    Blu-Ray has the most movie studios around it.

    Blu-Ray trojan horsed into every PS3 owners household.

    Blockbuster shuned HD-DVD for lack of rents. Blu-Ray is now prominently featured.

    8. PSN is free and getting better. XBL is the best but costs $50 ayear.

    I did know that the 60 gig PS3 was going down to $499 because Sony is going to stop making 'em and they have to compete with the 360. I guess you pay more into the Xbox for a 2x bigger hdd as opposed to the PS3's wifi and the Xbox is still $20 cheaper. Also, I did not know that the PS3 was doing the free 5 movie deal, probably to compete with Xbox, or the other way around.

    I'm not sure that's a good thing about the PS3.
