Pretty frickin' good deal if you ask me. I'll be picking one up when I come over next month for AGDC.
Speaking of AGDC, how is everyone's portfolios coming along. Mines gone a bit pear shaped with not having the stuff I was hoping for. Still, I hope to run into you all and looking forward to having a good time.
That is a pretty good deal. How much did an Xbox cost when it came out a year ago? about $700! What a difference a year of healthy competition makes! Unfortunately, I'm more of a PC nut, and any future purchase that I make would have to include a Geforce4 and a new CPU.. Doom 3, Silent Hill 2, and (hopefully real soon) Vice City have swayed me into upgrading my PC instead of buying a console - although I'm tempted to hire Vice City for the PS2 if I can get my hands on it at the video store.
Just to add to this, I think PC games are really starting to advance further away from the latest generation consoles in terms of eye candy / technology.. I know it's the gameplay that counts, but damnit, I wonder what those Geforce 5's are going to be able to do! 2x the speed of the 4ti was the blurb that was splashed about..
