It's official. You are an idiot. Highest price that still kept them up with 360 with 360 release of Halo3. And they reduced it more than 360. unneccesary BR? Sony is all about the newest technology. BR drive was the newest. It helped them with winning the format war. Fitting a game on one DVD is becomming a little problem. Though I think at this point it is pointless for gamming(not for the system though) I think it will play a bigger role next generation or the end of this one. I'm glad they didn't rush their crap out like the 360. 360 constantly changed Sku's too. Can someone list them all please? I know there are like 5 of them. Arrogance is a sad sorry excuse for you to try and make more excuses than you have. Edit: "smallest library" thing is real old. 360 had NO good games at launch and didn't have a must buy until Gears of War.
