Tell you what happened to me.
I live somewhere in the caribbean and the PS3 costs like 25% more than it is in the states. I have been playing NBA live since 95 but shifted to 2k on 2002. Been playing 2k ever since.
I was in San Diego and was adamant on getting the $299 ps3. I went to the gamestop downtown and they didn't have the $299 one. Only the $399. Then the fat guy over there went on saying why I should just save up my extra $100 and buy the 60gb one. Since I wasn't buying what he said I just wnet back to the hotel.
I did some research on the two ps3's and after 3 hours of thinking I decided to buy thr $399 one. I went to the nearest gamestop and they didn't have any ps3s in stock.
The next day I went to a Sony store and they both had the $299 and $399 one. I was about to buy the $399 but they did not have nba 2k8.
I ended up buying nothing at all.
Yesterday I was in Miami and they didn't have any Wiis.
