just 2 months before the holidays i believe is normal sales to go down, not just the PS3 but all of them, plus that people are waiting for bundles.

Where exactly does Nintendo get its user base. ?.?

the spirit of getting is three months away and every one knows what that means thats right bundles...and we all like bundles, now don't we.

Not to go too far off topic, but I'm interested in seeing how the PSPGo is faring. I would assume not that well, at least in comparison to other systems... especially the DS(i).
