Well, bluray movies are in 1080p, but even if you watch it in 720p, it'll still look a lot nicer than an upconverted DVD.

You could always buy a bluray player, and rent a movie. If you like it, keep it... if not, return both. =]

Yeah to be honest I have no idea why I had put off buying it for so long. I'm a huge fan of everything Batman, and the voice cast for the game is amazing, plus the demo was good.

Worth the money definitely.

I bought two PSP's off of amazon.ca last night for $19.96 each. I think that makes me a winner.

Dante's Inferno is $39.99 at Target starting tomorrow. I'm guessing it's for the week only.

XBox Arcade is on sale for $129.99 at the moment, and at EBgames if you trade in an old console (old xbox360) you can get 100$ credit towards the new console without having to concede your hard drive.

Did it today with my 4 year old Xbox that had RROD'd 4 times, cost me $30 after tax to get a new system and a new wireless controller.

I sometimes do my builds from items that were donated to the Salvation Army Stores...and advanced warning from one of the local officers when a major shipment will come in from a store that either went out of business or just wanted to dump a bunch of items they weren't able to sell...

Other than the lack of desired CPU/memory/power supply I got from the latest donations...I think I did okay... Where else can you get four boxed Pioneer Qfix DVD burners (out of stock at newegg)...2 Cooler Master cases (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...811119161)...2 WD 320GB IDE drives and four case fans (2 each of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998108 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998128) for under $70 (with a $30 voucher added to the mix)??? I think this could go under the "steals" category...

its on the dashboard.. just bought it... for a month... but you have to remember to cancel before or they go back to regular pricing after the month.


also might only be in canada but not sure. All i know is i have it woot!


Ps xbox live.com never tells you about the deals. I bought a 1 year like a month ago for like 30 bucks, but there was no mention of that promo on the website. I havent used my 1 year yet so i can save it again lol and have the 1 month for 1 dolla!
