    Have I got a story. Bad, Good and Great....

    So as some may know on here, I was trying to decide btwn. Call of Duty or GH3. Well, last night it didn't matter. I was in the middle of watching a movie, the player stopped playing. It wouldn't recognize a DVD, CD, Blu Ray or a game. Great. Had this thing for almost a year (got it for christmas). So contact Sony and they were great. We can send you a box, send it in and then we will send you another. Take about 3 weeks. So on a whim, I told them to hold off and I would just check with Costco. I still had a reciept, so thought why not give it a shot.

    So after the game (ugh...), I stopped by Costco. Fulling expecting for them to say "it has been over 9 months, you'll have to send it to the manufacturer". Instead they said "do you have every thing?" Yep. So long story short....they gave me a COMPLETE refund. To the penny!

    Now for the rest and best. So now I take my new refund and go get another one. Well, they didn't have 60gb units...they only had 80gb! AND IT WAS $150 LESS! And what was there? GH3 and COD 4! So at the end of the day, I get a PS3, extra controller, DVD remote, GH3, COD 4 AND 20gb of more space!

    Just thought I would let you know of the good fortune!

    Sweet.

    So does the Costco deal have all that packaged together? They have a decent deal on it?

    The Costco deal is you get the 80gb PS3, DVD Remote, Extra Controller and Motostorm game for $559.99. Then you can find a mail-in offer for 5 free Blu-Ray movies.
