    My sister bought me a PS3 Slim already, but I am inclined to tell her to return it and get an Elite. I want to play more Forza 3. :o

    Yes we sell extended warranties on consoles. I "think" the extended on the elite is $40

    yeah

    Wal-Mart has them for $20 on a 360 (Arcade anyway). Not sure how long it is though.

    I wouldn't mod it though.

    There are plenty of cheap and good 360 games, and Forza 3 is a must-have for racing fans.

    Oh and I am not trolling this time. :o

    Seeing as the PS3 YLODed on me before GT5, I decided to go with a 360, but then I gotta buy games, buy the online subscription, buy another controller, buy the protection plan and buy the hd a/v cables.

    From what i know they sell 2 I dont know much they are now but about a year ago, this is what happened to my friend.
    RROD he bought warranty for $60. Thats a 3 year warranty you bring your 360 down to best buy they send it off to microsoft.
    He blows up and they told he had to buy the extended warranty $97. 1 year you walk into best buy with 360 and get a new 1 :rofl:

    that could be it, i only had the option of replacement plan and it was 50 or 60 bucks i think, well worth it for me to run 5 mins to get a new one rather than wait 3 weeks every 6 or 7 months :hs:

    Well, looks like I might be getting a new Elite bros. :hs:

    GT5 won't be out till next year so I'll get a Slim by next year.

    Finally, I'll be able to play Forza 3 and Ace Combat 6. :bowdown:
