Another Castle They are quickly becoming my favorite place. They gave me a discount as a returning customer too.

Yeah, weird. That shouldn't work. The converter doesn't covert anything, it just adapts the plugs and passes through the appropriate pins. Your TV must have DVI-I then.

$60 for the first time, $50 for this time. If I do get a 3rd YLOD I'm thinking of seriously looking at getting a new PS3, but I'd rather not. I want that backwards compatibility for PS2 games.

Just in here to let everyone know that a new revision of the PS3 has just been annouced...
Sony Corp. is introducing a smaller, slimmer and lighter version of its PlayStation 3 home console ahead of the year-end holidays as it gears up for growing competition in games from smartphones.The announcement Wednesday from the Japanese electronics and entertainment company comes a day ahead of the annual Tokyo Game Show, where game makers show their wares. But the iPhone 5 smartphone from Apple Inc. is hogging much of the attention, already drawing long lines for pre-orders at some retailers, and more lines are expected ahead of Friday's launch.The new PlayStation 3, closer to the size of a laptop, is half the size of the original model, introduced in 2006. It also offers more hard-drive memory at 500 gigabytes and 250 gigabytes, up from the current 320 GB and 160 GB options.The global rollout starts Sept. 25 in North America, where the 250 GB version will sell for $269. The other version sells for $299 from Oct. 30. In Japan, the models go on sale Oct. 4 for 29,980 yen ($380) and 24,980 yen ($316).

You still can't stack anything on it.. Sony is pretty adamant about that, huh.

I got the assumption that it had a sliding/popup door and you just pop the disk in like the old portable cd players or the PS1/2 slim.

I actually hate flip top lids more than trays, yuck. Is this 1999?
