    I cant believe anyone would buy this when you can just buy a phat 80GB or slim 120GB and upgrade the HDD yourself :shadedshu

    Um if you just bought a 120GB slim for $299 and this is only $59 more, you won't be picking up a 250GB drive for much less ,the cheapest on the egg is $54.99. Not to mention the recent price cut, this isnt a huge price hike. I wouldnt go out and buy a new one if I had a 80GB, or even a 120GB, just saying they aren't charging much more than cost.

    Also if you just picked up a 120GB you could just return it, I might, not sure yet.

    If it came with Uncharted 2 that thing would sell like hotcakes for Christmas, I'm sure it already will. 250GB seems a little much to me, but I guess if you're big into putting movies on it the extra space would be useful.

    Yeah he's saying if you sell your 120gb drive and buy the 250gb you'll come out on top and thats true, technically you can sell the 120gb for like 35 dollars, so you'll be spending about 20 dollars on the 250gb vs 55,

    I personally think it should come with uncharted 2 for 399.99 that means upgraded HDD and a great PS3 game for $100 dollars.

    Granted you'd only be saving 10 dollars on the game but still it's the bundle people are looking for
