I will.. as it stands, I won't be buying it until this weekend, because buying the PS3 new with MLB 08 left me with about $5 total, unless I trade in some old 360 games.. which I might do if I'm too impatient to wait for Saturday, LOL..

I would.

I know COD4 nets you like $35 in credit.

There's no way I'm getting rid of COD4. That's one of my favorite games.

I figured you wouldn't I was just letting you know.

If you have a bunch of shit games you can probably trade those in and make like $3-10 bucks on each.

I bought a 40GB PS3 about a half a year ago mainly for Blu Ray and I still don't have a PS3 game.

Is there any online baseball game? Like if I wanted to play a game against Reek?

Really? That sounds awesome.

PS3 Online is free right? All I need is wireless like with the Wii?

Yeah.

I haven't tried it online yet, but I hear The Show is kind of laggy online.

I hope not. Seems like that would be a huge problem for the hitter.

You know what I just realized...you should have bought the PS3 at Walmart for $400 and they give you a $100 gift card. That way you could have gotten MGS4 for free and another game (you could just buy MLB The Show on your own because you can get it used pretty cheap)

Fuck me. I dipped into my savings yesterday and bought Resistance: Fall of Man used, and took out enough to get MGS4 today as well.. curses. I wish I'd have known about this. That $100 gift card could've been tits.

Goddamn you, jza! GODDAMN YOU!

And I just called Gamestop, and they're sold out already of the regular edition as far as pre-orders go, and they said Konami or whoever only sent them as many copies as pre-orders until the next shipment for the midnight release .. all they had left for pre-order was the limited edition, which is $85 and comes with tons of extras..

I'm sad now.

I'm still going down there to make my pre-order though.

If only I had a $100 gift card.. :x :x :x

AHA!

When I went down to Gamestop to reserve my copy of the limited edition, the chick there said that after I called she checked and they did indeed have two more copies of the regular edition.. so.. I don't have to pay $30 more than the regular price afterall! Jackpot!

Also.. she looked like she had no clue about anything video games-related.. I tried to get her to sell me the copy early, and she almost did, before the other guy walked out of the back. :x :x

Holy F'N shit..

I just "played" the game for about half an hour.. though I guess only about half of that was actual gameplay.. and this game is already tops on my all-time list.

Graphics are the best I've ever seen, on any system.. slightly edging Gears of War. The music already has me hooked.. gameplay is SOLID..

And to add to the cinematic experience, there are trailer/commercials before the official start of the game! (After you start the game, but before the official intro.. one of the commercials is live-action and kind of introduces the game)
