    That's a wee bit more than I was wanting to pay. I really only want the system with one game at launch anyway... who knows, maybe I'll magically scrounge together anoth US$186 (I have $214 saved so far) to get this.

    If that's not what you want, buying a system online from a major chain isn't the way to go. They don't sell systems alone anymore, it's always part of a bundle of some sort. Especially since it's a hot new system.

    I'd suggest hitting up a local store to get one, you can usually get exactly what you want there.

    I love how they say 'date and PRICES' not yet confirmed.

    So, who knows what the system will actually sell for? We're still waiting on that. I don't even know what games are susposed to be out for it at launch time.

    I think I'll wait about a year or so after the launch. Im never buying anything from Sony until they work out the bugs.

    The problem is that the closest game store is 45 miles away ,an EB, and the closest GS is around 60 away.

    I'll just wait till the price comes down. No handheld is worth that. I'll stick with my trusty SP.

    Dates and prices have not been confirmed and are subject to change. Actual price for this bundle may be higher or lower. If the price is higher, you will be charged the higher price. If the price is lower, you will be charged the lower price.
    Let me shed light on this subject:

    They set it at a price that would more than likely be higher, because had they set it at say $200 (which is what everyone is expecting) and Sony goes "Nah, $300" there would be a lot of pissed customers claiming they were lied too.

    Am I the only person who doesn't care about handheld systems? In fact, I never have, even the current system, I only have a SP with couple pirated multicarts, that's it. Given the current economy, people are supposed to be broke, where do people come up with so much money to waste?

    As much as I enjoy games, they're not meant to be played while you're on the go, if someone has to be with games all the time, then there's real problem.

    Funny...Sony has claimed that YOU are their target customer. Lets talk again 3 months after launch and see if they suck you in. (No sarcasm. Im serious.)

    As for the price. Screw that. Ill wait for the regular PSP at $189 and a Wipeout Pure for about $40. Im still using my SCPH-30001 from the first christmas after launch so Im hoping I get lucky with an early PSP with no crippling bugs.
