    So when i didn't really want a Ps3 they were everywhere, but now that i have the money for one i can't find one. How long do you guys think this shortage will go on for? It's seriously got me thinking about getting a xbox 360, which i don't really want to do in fear of the red ring and all my friends have Ps3.

    I had no idea it was possible for something like that to have a shortage.
    You can blame the air force. I read an article not to long ago that they bought something like 800 of them to try and duplicate the processing speed and thought process of the human brain.

    Colton-

    Tried that already. the best buy one is the $350 and it has tobe available in your area, they will not ship. The amazon one says it ships in 1 to 2 months.

    Im thinking its because of the drop in price and everyone is getting the income tax.

    im noy sure, i heard the new elites dont get them but that just what i heard. i got the red a while ago had to call xbox and they sent me a box to ship it in with pre printed labels and everything. shipped and got shipped back like a week later i think. been about a year since that and no problems.

    I had my first X360 for almost 2 years before I got the red ring, and it only happened after I had a power outage while playing it. Luckily I had the BB product replacement plan so I just called the number and they sent me a gift card for what I paid for it, so I went and bought another about a year ago. That was nice because the price had dropped quite a bit since I originally bought it.


    The later models (2008+ I believe) have better reliability due to new improved 65nm chipsets and motherboards that have better methods for reducing heat.

    I'm not a fanboy of either the X360 or PS3, but I prefer the Xbox myself. The online funcionality of Xbox Live just seems better to me than the PSN. Of course you do have to pay like $50 yearly for Live, so I guess it should be better. :rolleyes:

    Plus the Xbox has Gears of War. :cool:
