Sweet choice, Same here, But I have been reading lots about it and it has received a lot of criticism over repetitiveness in the gameplay, i'm worried it might be a let down so i might go for COD:4 modern at the same time as a fall back option, lol.

Casino Royale a must! ;)

Assassins Creed does look pretty, but the gameplay does get repetitive fairly quickly, and as for the ending :wacko: Uncharted Drake's fortune is one to look out for, it looks amazing and the game play is really good.

Hi Guys,

I purchased my Sony 46" XBR from JB HiFi Miranda only a couple of weeks prior to the bonus PS3 offer coming out.

I am very disappointed that I am missing out so I have sent an email letter sent to Sony expressing my discouragement and loss considering I own many other Sony products and am a avid gamer.

To try and avoid this I was wondering if anyone out there who has purchased the same model HDTV as me to forward on their receipt I will sincerely and very much appreciate it :)

Please PM me for my email address details.

Cheers,

Adrian

Go back to JB Hifi and ask them to reprint the receipt. Say there is a bonus for the salesperson who does it (if they are defiant).

** Doesn't the receipt have to be from the same store you purchased the PS3 from? Because they ask you, when you register.

You have to understand that someone was going to miss out on the promotion. It just works that way. You were the unlucky one this time. I hate it when it happens, but Sony won't do anything for you (giving away $600 machines to satisfy customers who missed out is not the smartest move ever).

Hey hype, I know the feeling, just purchased a $50 IR ON/OFF USB from the states so my universal remote doesn't go to waste, will be spending $90 on Assassins Creed and then $40 on Casino Royale... damn this deal is gonna send me broke, but I love it!

lol, I was about to buy a BR remote, then I thought to myself... HOLD ON.. I don't need this. And canceled the order. And I decided not to get fifa, in case it doesn't arrive by the time the PS3 gets here (so I can go over to the store and pick one up).

Still, I need a BR movie. Where's the cheapest place to get one? I wouldn't mind getting Troy or Transformers on BR. **Damnit, all the good movies are on HD DVD... Why!!!

The cheapest place i found was Big W. At the moment they are having a dvd sale which lasts until the 23/1/08 with the following blu ray dvds for $29.48 (The Simpsons, 300, Die Hard 4, Pirates of the Caribbean: At worlds end, Spiderman 3 & Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer). Check out the catalogue on the Big W website.

I called sony. They haven't processed my PS3. So I guess I won't be getting it anytime soon (this week). I posted in on the 29th of December.

Also with regards to warranty. You get the normal 12 month manufacturers warranty and you use your TV receipt.

Oh and does anyone know if there is going to be a Crash Bandicoot style game. I want one =D

Heyas,

Bought the KDL40W3100 for $2650 including 5yr warranty. Picked up the TV today, mailed the bits off today. See how it goes.

Looks like quite a few people over on Whirlpool have also received their PS3, good to see Sony aren't mucking around with this one :)

Thats because they want people out and about buying Blu-Ray movies asap to get the demand happening.

The closest 'Crash Bandicoot' style game will be Ratchet & Clank... It looks fantastic! Thanks for getting the warranty details.

EB has Motorstorm and Resistence secondhand right now for $25 each (you may have to ask as they might have them out the back)

Blu Ray's I got from Amazon with a group buy with 3 of my mates...

ChimaRR, where was your ps3 posted from?

Well it came in a brown box parcel with a return address to BROOKVALE NSW (where i mailed the redemption to), so i assume its from the factory there.

Hi ChimaRR- congrats on your parcel. What state are you in?

dont forget people that (i think) Sony said they are processing the redemption in order of purchase date, not mail date

although that doesnt make much sense when you think about it in some ways

does make sense at all considering i bought on the 21st and sent out express same day..

Bah... this PS3 is costing me all the money I was saving to buy a 27'' LCD Monitor. Just bought the Monster 2m cable for $70 (RRP $150) and Fifa 2008 for $85.

Harvey Norman O'Connor (for people in Perth) has a small selection of blu-ray titles and they are all 1/2 price!!

Ahhhh another victim of Monster marketing! Hey for future reference there is a guy on here (Foxtail) selling HDMI cables for half that price and everyone who has bought one speaks highly of them!

I know about both.. and know the quality will be exactly the same. But I figured, I'd rather spend an extra $40 and get proven quality and reliability.

I've had lots of Monster stuff (including my surge protector) and they have all done their job very well.

RAISE HANDS... highly agree with this dude... i was awaked this morning @ 7.15 by stranger whom just drop me a brown parcel box and quickly ran back to the white van...god damn was thinking did someone send me the threat? LOL jk , i'd seen on the other side of parcel written PS3 redeemed...

I'd purchased mine 40" w (2190+delivery+2 hdmi) on 31/12 (wow my NY resolution aye) then got it delivered on 2/1 (delay for one day as they closed on 1/1) . I'd registered on 1/1 and send my serial out via registered post on 4/1 (right just before post office close @5) so pretty much my mail was delivered to SONY on 7/1, arrive there around 8-9/1 and HERE the 11/1 i'd recieved....!!!!

I'm very satisfied with sony redeemtion team. Anyway i'll need to buy another hdmi cable for my PS3. Therefore i would like to ask u guys, are there any difference between the brand name one( belkin-monster worth triple of the dse one) COMPARE to the dse brand which cost around 30 as in aspect of PQ - SQ?

Also i'll need to get an optical switch board ( with @ least 3 inputs) too as it's a shame to say yeh i'm one of the newbies who fall for htib tread (it's worth for what its price , i guess). So r we here know any information about this optical fibre switch of its price - location of where can i obtain its and its performance ( i've bravia 40" w + panasonic sc-pt850w htib+ ps3+ foxtel + upcoming hd dvd <---- now u see why do i desperate to get an switch... my htib only has 1 opt fibre on its panel

Please excuse my stupidity for being another newbies here ... any help in regard will be highly appreciated.... many thx

Component

- Analog video signal

- Carries no audio signal

HDMI

- Digital video signal

- Carries audio signal in either PCM, AC3, DTS and all the new fancy HD audio formats.

Component is good, but HDMI is better.

The guys just left the parcel on your doorstep? Didn't ask for a signature? Thats worrying.

I'm pretty sure you cannot get high definition picture with component.
