Sony's damage control has begun.... too little, too late to the party? We'll see... I wonder what happens if you own a 20GB and it "breaks down" under warranty? Do you get a 60GB version as a replacement? hehe

If you take out BluRay, none of the games would work.

1 Euro = 1.3345 U.S. dollars

so if something costs €500 in europe and costs $500 in the US, the people in europe are getting majorly ripped off (€500 is about $660)

I'm still waiting on the price to either drop or some better games come out (though if/when GT5 hits the shelf, I'll probably drop the cash unless it gets reallbad reviews)
