PlayStation 3 for $250, Same Price as Wii but Includes a Catch

350°
296w ago - Pop quiz: Which is the cheapest current-gen home console? If you said the $250 Nintendo Wii, you'd be wrong – it's actually the $200 Xbox 360 Arcade, which eschews the hard drive, headset and premium cables of its Pro cousin to shed a full $100 off of the regular price.

But though the entry-level 80GB PlayStation 3 usually clocks in at nearly twice that last price – with "no plans" for a March price cut – a new Sony offer will put the PS3 in a very close third-place finish with its rivals. If you're willing and able to sign up for the new Sony PlayStation credit card, you can get a PS3 shipped to your door for exactly $284.

While I would not advocate credit even if the US financial market wasn't currently in death throes due to its mismanagement (I avoid credit cards as a matter of principle) for those who don't feel similarly bound this actually appears to be a pretty good deal.

There's no annual fee, the standard APR is 11% variable, and there don't appear to be any unusually nasty penalties –...

Street Fighter HD Hits PlayStation Network - It's Finally Here

300°
296w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon shared the following today via PS Blog:

Joe Esposito once eloquently proclaimed that "History repeats itself" and it's an honor for me to announce that Street Fighter returns today on the PlayStation Network. On a personal note, it's been a dream of mine to work on this franchise. I remember going to the local 7-11 and spending hours trying to pull off an invisible throw or handcuff glitch.

I remember sharing theories with my friends that it was possible to throw that rock in the Chun-Li stage, pull out Guile's gun, control Ryu's red fireballs or defeat the mysterious Sheng Long. Street Fighter was a cultural phenomenon not seen since the days of Pac Man. Here we are, almost 20 years later, and this franchise is as relevant as ever.

Here's the final HD Remix video for your viewing pleasure.





Enough of my reminiscing. I'm here to talk about the next installment of the SF2 series; Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Special Champion Hyper Alpha EX Versus Zero Plus Collection Edition (am I missing anything?). Ah Capcom, we love long game titles. I can go on and on about the many features of this game, but instead, I'll provide you this link that contains all you need to know about HD Remix....
