Put a check in the PS3 you want then in 3 of the Blu-Rays you would want. There is a link at the top of that page for a mail in rebate for the other 5 movies you can print out.

Once everything is in your cart and you get to the end of the checkout process it will apply the discounts. The standard 3-5 days shipping is free also. If you want to do 2 day it's like an extra $7.

I found this all out on another forum. When I did it it charged me for the PS3 at 499.99 and gave me a refund for all the Blu-Rays at the end of the checkout to bring my total to 499.99. I went ahead and placed the order because it was still a great deal. I then called customer service told them that my friend bought it and paid 476.02 (I was mistaken with the actual price because it was 472.02, but I don't care about $4). I said I would be glad to email them the screenshot of his order (I have a link somewhere of the guys posting it) and she said she would credit my account the difference and they did, just like that. After shipping and everything I paid 476.02.

Here is the screenshot of an order placed using this offer. I got this from another forum.

Thanks, Phat, I appreciate the post. Unfortunately that link comes up with a 403 Forbidden page...this is still a great deal, and I'm strongly considering it.

A game that comes out for both systems that looks really sweet is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The campaign looks awesome and the multiplayer reminds me of an updated counter-strike on steroids.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

article on a game developers perspective of the PS3 vs 360 debate:

http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-348-1.htm

from what i've heard the fact that the 360 has been out a year longer and thus has many developers using it as the main platform is a big deal...it means that most games that are made for both systems will be made for the 360 first and then converted over to the PS3 which in most cases will cause the 360 version to be much better...this is already evident in some games such as madden which plays much much better on the 360 then the PS3

Yeah, but something like that is very time based, I mean they aren't going to be in the dark about the PS3 forever.

its just that people use the fact that xbox 360 has been out for a year longer as an excuse for why its better...in another year, the 360 will still have been out for a year longer, the PS3 isnt just going to magically catch up in time...the 360 got a big head start which the PS3 just isnt going to be able to make up, its not that the developers are 'in the dark' about the PS3, its just that since the 360 came out a year sooner the developers had a head start on the 360 and thus many use it as their primary system for development...if this is the case then the 360 will almost always have the superior version of a game as it is difficult to move a game from one console to another without causing flaws in graphics, gameplay or controls...games for the 360 will just always have that extra year of development over the PS3

Xbox sales are waning while PS3 sales are increasing. I still think PS3 will flop but it will be a close race between the two.
