Where in the thread is the mention of the $280 version? These prices were
specific, and the comparison for the prices listed seemed to indicate from
ST that a HDD is not included in the 360, which is wrong. But if you want to
deal in price points and what is included, the PS3 looks rather silly in
cost, no matter how nice the system is.- Hide quoted text -

LOL. He included the cost of the game in the original post while you
were just talking about the cost of the system. Get it now? You are
right, for $340, you DO get a HDD. Unfortunately for the sake of THIS
thread, that doesn't come with COD4 so it doesn't really make sense to
compare a system price to the price of a system and the game that we
are talking about, does it?
OK, I got it, but the 360 is still the better deal (for the sake of this particular point), even if you have to purchase the HDD for the ill-conceived notion that a HDD would not come with HD consoles, such as the ones we have today. The price of a PS3 (even at $399 for a 40gig unit) is still too much what it offers and I haven't been shown much for reason to buy one. Not many great games, they really lack exclusives, of which almost none have online gaming and not much multiplayer in their exclusives. Their systems come with no headset, no HD connectors, and no rumble controller. Throw in the fact that you have to get those connectors (at least one anyway, whether it is component or HDMI) and a controller with rumble (if one wants that) and $460 get a bit more expensive.
But I'll throw in another price concerning the OP's point, $409 dollars does get a HDD, and two types of HD connectors, a headset and a controller with rumble with COD4.
