That's a pretty good deal, only 249.99. I was thinking that it would only be a matter of time before they lowered the price to compete with the new price of the PS3

They already lowered it to $299. Remember, this is the Elite, not the Pro model.

+ wireless internet still brings it to $350 but with the content available on the 360 it's now a tough decision between the two. Good job Microsoft. Should keep that price permanent. Also at this price, if you buy a Wii, you are mentally mentally challenged.

Wireless internet on a gaming console is something that is hyped up by PS3 fans, but it is not worth talking about. Why would you not want to have your console hooked directly up to your modem/router? A hard line straight to the source is always better.

BTW, weren't you on the 360 bus a few weeks ago? I can't understand why you would switch to the Gheystation.

I'm a PS3 guy, and I agree....unless your playing on a portalable device. Wired connections are best for gaming.

not everyone can hook up directly to their modem or router

this has been discussed before

This is certainly understandable, but he can't really use that as a crutch in the PS3 vs 360 debate. Its no contest, a hard line is better than wireless 100% of the time.

i certainly agree that wired is better

but it's nice to know that if i ever need the wireless(at one time i did), i won't have to go out and buy it

I do. My internet connection is on the other side of the house from where my PS3/360 is and running wires through the attic would be a PIA (Cue buzd saying everyone needs a powerline adapter, but I tried it and it stopped my laptop from connecting wirelesly). So, for me, wireless is essential and I had to shell out the $100 for it on the 360. It was one of the reasons I bought the PS3 first.

Yeah, but wireless is better than not being online.

I guess i'm in the minority. I possess the skills necessary to install my own ethernet jacks in my walls, and running cable is not a problem, at all.
