    Hi, Iam buying a ps3 soon and i have 3 options for 3 stores to buy it at. Iam from canada so the prices are different from the US prices. Here are my options I can buy a ps3 60gb from ebgames for 659.99 with no warenty or games. My second options is from best buy for 699.99 for the console 60gb no games no warenty and my third is from costco for 789.99 with 1 extra controller and a game genji days fo the blade with a 1 year warenty. I can afford any of these choices but i would like to see what people think the best choice is.

    Well at ebgames they also have that deal where you trade in 10 games that are worth $8 or more and you get a PS3 for $399, and if you can afford them all get the Costco one because it's probably a better deal in the long run. I got the $399 from ebgames because I dont wanna spend that much on a ps3 yet, I'm saving my money, and I needed to get rid of my games after my PS2 memory card's battery ran out. Good Luck.

    Do you have Target in canada because im from the US and i got a 60 gb system with a 3 year warranty from Target... 600 for the system and 59 for the warranty but with tax it came to like 690 which i think was a pretty great deal.

    Yeah I got mine at ebgames and did that 399.99 thing and the price turned out to be like 490.90$ and that's with tax so that deal has some tricks to it but I happy I got mine for 399.99 or yeah and the final price only matters on what games you bring in like older games you won't get lots of money for so if you do, then you might wanna have some newer games handy I figured that out the hard way.


    P.S. sports games aren't worth as much cause they release a new one every year like hockey and wrestling and football etc..

    I'm sure it won't break if you at least take care of it and something like that I'm gonna take care of. So in my eyes purchasing a warranty or a lifetime warranty is good for you people how can't take care of your stuff.
