I'm really tempted to drive out today (we're having our BBQ on Sunday due to inclement weather) and pick this up; five percent off means it would be like I'm getting the system tax-free, which ain't too shabby ... However, I keep hearing rumors the the Elite is gonna drop in price further before the end of the year (down to 299 mayhaps?); of course, there's a chance it won't come with Fable 2 and Halo 3 at that price, but I would be willing to risk it to save an extra hundred bucks.

Plus, now that I hear that an 80GB PS3 bundle featuring Killzone 2 and MGS4 is going to be available at that same price next weekend (kotaku.com), that's just one more thing to consider ... The deciding factor between the two systems for me would be the ability to view hi-def movies; should I go go for the Blu-Ray, or sample a free month of NetFlix on the Xbox?

Any advice?

I've always believed you can do more with a PS3 than a 360. No offense to those who love the 360, but the Blu-Ray player on the PS3 sold me.

The games for both systems are pretty much the same (save for system exclusives) and I can't hardly tell the difference between on or the other half the time. I guess it's just a matter of whether you want a Blu-Ray player or not.

Which, if presistent rumors are to be believed, will be coming to the 360 at some point via a USB attachment (they did that with HD-DVD).

Lets be real for a moment. When you get a 360, you'll be getting Halo 3 at some point. If you play any kind of online games or FPS games, it's a given. You have friends who you have come over, it's a given. In this case, not only you are saving the 100 bucks BUT you are getting Halo 3 for free. Fable 2 is just gravey at this point, and if you get ANY enjoyment out of Fable 2 then cosnider yourself a jr. lotto winner, becaus eyou already struck gold with Halo 3 being free.

A similar thing happened to me a couple of years ago. The Elite went on sale with Halo 3 bundled. I regret NOTHING.

I say, based on this deal, go for the 350. Period.
