My 6 year old Phat 60gb has become annoyingly loud while gaming, but it just won't die. Want to get a second one while they're cheap to replace my phat and leave the phat as a media center- BD player.

Bummer man! You should have gotten one last year itself! >:-/

Why the second PS3 though?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012, 7:19:15 PM PST
I'm getting a vita and a second PS3 on BF and a WiiU (against my will) on Xmas.
A 360 is definitely out of the question now.

Flores you should get that 360 bundle this year. You'll enjoy it, don't you think so? ;)

Agreed, hands-down.

Gears of War is a good series.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012, 6:42:45 PM PST
I know not everyone likes Uncharted.

The Gears Of War series is a great trilogy, Gears Of war 2 had probably the saddest scene with Dom and his long lost wife and Gears Of War 3 ended the trilogy with a great finale. All kidding aside it's great to see when a game title franchise is doing great like this it shows that the console gamers are here to stay and there should be no fear about it going under to the tablet or iphone gamers like some of these magazine editors predict from time to time.

I meant just the wii version, it single handedly sold over 30 million copies..... More than the entire gears franchise.

For the record I love gears, gaol, uncharted and Mario kart. I am strange that way.

Well you need to realize that not everyone likes Uncharted. Gears was awesome, Gears 2 was a bit of a letdown but Gears 3 was really great and I had a blast from beginning to end.

It's not just three games. It's gears 1, gears 2, gears 3, gears 1 pc, gears of war triple pack.

I love Halo. I just don't think much of Gears. To me it's just decent.

RC Pro-AM with Twisted Metal 2 as the best car/racing/combat game. Then Mario Kart....Okay, Mario Kart is better than RC but damn does that game bring some great memories.

Dude, calm down. Why do you troll every single pro-Xbox thread, and anti-PS3 thread? Gears is a kick-ass series and revolutionized the TPS for consoles. Someone likes it and is happy that it has sold so well. Sure, he did not need to bring in Sony fans but what would it hurt to agree that it is indeed a great series. Uncharted and God of War kicks butt, as does Halo and Gears. See that was easy.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012, 5:58:47 PM PST
Mario Kart is definitely the best racing game series ever.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012, 5:49:35 PM PST
Of course it sold that many, with the Xbox 360 causing damages to the game disc through scratches/burnouts/cracks many people felt forced to repurchase the game and finish though they were probably angered by this and thus became PS3 owners.

"I guess that makes nsmb and Mario kart best games ever at 30+ million sold.... The op has sound logic."

Actually, with Mario Kart that's not too far off.

"Can the ps3 fans show a lil love?"

Sure! Congrats to Epic on the series and its sales. I own all three games. Good on ya, Epic.

"Making Gears of war the pinnacle 3rd person game."

As self-appointed spokesman for the Sonymites, my kind words will end here. Because no. Definitely no.

On the 360 alone GTA IV sold better than any of the Gears games..... Your logic is terrible.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012, 4:59:18 PM PST
With over 6 games on multiple consoles plus the shooting mechanic is was better in gears of war it kinda made a cover system the standerd for third person games. Gta before gears no cover After gears Cover is in GTA :p I love GTA though GOW: judgement and GTA5 both day one buys for me.
