Is this Limited Edition (bestbuy.com) what you are talking about? Because I can't see anything special about that other than it's a regular old PS2, but that may be what's special about it, since its not one of the newer ones (bestbuy.com) that comes with the network adapter (and I think a built-in IR port for the DVD remote).
I had heard something about Sony dropping the price on the online bundle to $179.99, but the above ad indicates I may be incorrect.
Ha, nope, just work being busy. I expect this week will be the same. XBLA (Friday) - Days of Thunder: Arcade Edition (800 pts) Deadliest Warrior DLC (Friday) - new characters and a game mode and stuff (400 pts)
