As I predicted, there have already been a lot of reports about problems with the Playstation 3. New owners seem a bit concerned that the firmware updates aren't taking some of these issues into consideration, instead adding easier methods for spending money online. To be fair, this report is about update 1.11. Update 1.30 may have fixed some of the problems, but probably not.
2. Secondary Market
It seems like resale prices on Ebay are holding steady at the low price of around $1000, far below the $5000-$6000 they were going for a few weeks ago. If you happen to stumble upon one for retail price, would it be worth it to purchase for resale? This guy doesn't think so, but I'd probably be tempted to try it.
