I’ve been waiting for a good time to pick up a PS3 since it launched just over a year ago and that time finally arrived. With the almost extinction of the 20GB and 60GB models available for purchase I decided to pick up a refurbished 60GB model from Overstock this evening for about $470, $129 less than it’s original retail price. Considering this was probably my last chance to pick up a console that had the internal PS2 hardware necessary for full backwards compatibility, it was worth the cost. It even comes with a copy of Motorstorm and just might qualify for the 5 Free Blu-Ray promotion.

At any rate, I can’t wait for it to get here so I can pick up the newest installment of the Ratchet & Clank series. I also can’t wait to start building my Blu-Ray library. There are so many good movies out on Blu-Ray that I just can’t wait to see in HD.
