First, the link to this article on Ars Technica's "Opposable Thumbs" section.News Here!
So, that being said, how does everybody feel about this? Me personally, I think it's great, though the lack of support on the new ones for other OS' (particularly Linux) sort of upsets me, but I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Also, the main reason I'm happy about this is the new price point; the original price was far too steep for me to justify buying it, even after I had enough money because I simply could have bought a gaming computer for maybe a few hundred dollars more that could feasibly do more overall x_x. The only major thing keeping me from getting a PS3 was primarily the price, and interest in exclusive titles secondly. Now that they're released titles I'm interested in (Metal Gear, Little Big Planet, ect.) I'm more inclined to entertain the thought.
What are your thoughts, guys?
