I'm so glad Game of Thrones isn't taking the this Sunday's episode off, just because it's memorial Day weekend. I always felt that was stupid. (7 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: ??? unless it costs more where you're at. My pre ordered Playstation VR bundle costs $499. (10 minutes ago)

apart in price at least. $250 vs $399. for the PS4, it will be $299 for PS4 vs $399 for the PS4 Neo or $499 with VR thrown in (21 minutes ago)
The current XO stock that is left will be reduced in price well below the Slim's price to clear it. After that, it's up to the consumer and what they want. XO Slim or XO Scorpio which will be $150 ... (22 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: It's not throwing it under the box at all. It depends how many manufactured XOs they have left. The Slim apparently has 2TB hard drive which is a big selling point IMO. (25 minutes ago)
@scoobs0688: you are so going to eat crow. haha (3 Hours ago)
