    Most people believe that the 80GB SKU is just a HD upgrade, since you can upgrade the HD in any PS3 anyway.... there's no real point in holding out.

    250GB ~ £50

    320GB ~ £65

    Then deduct whatever you get for your existing HD that you pulled out.

    I doubt CEX will be selling them for much less than the RRP for a while, and besides its going to take some time from the launch of the 80gb to CEX getting any in since they rely on people selling them on, dont they? Maybe wait for the 80gb to come out and CEX's prices on the current version to come down, then buy more games with what you save! Personally I think you're barmy and should buy an xbox 360 purely because of the price difference, but thats just me

    but i have £348 in vouchers which cost me around just over £200ish so its worth it for me, i might just wait for cex to reduce their prices again!

    Why do you want PS3 if you have Xbox 360? Just for blu-ray films? I have both and I prefer PS3.

    (1) 500GB is a safe bet. (2.5" SATA)

    (2) No, must remux into another container - .vob, .mpg etc.

    xbox 360 is a upscaler tho and blu ray is just too expensive atm most films are £15 each released and dont drop in price

    You can watch HD quality disks on a neat little 4.7gb DVD.

    I've seen a few of these on the ps3 and the quality on them is amazing.

    i'm in the same boat as you - wondering if i should wait a month for the the 80GB to come out.

    i've also got an XBOX 360 - for playing games & HD DVD.

    wanna get a PS3 for Blu-ray & Upscaling; also for a couple of games like LBP & WipeoutHD. Also looking forward to PlayTV [now thats when you really need a large hard drive :)]

    i'm probably gonna get the PS3 from John Lewis sometime next week & report an undersale if the prices go down when stores are trying to get rid of the old 40GB SKU's - saved just under £400 when i did that last week
