    I bet this is only for the U.S. market?

    Well the whole Black Friday thing is kind of an American thing

    And this is another excellent reason why you should never preorder or early adopt anything, there are always better and cheaper deals to be had down the line.

    I think you should have waited another couple yrs and possibly saved even more ;)

    I'm pleased to hear it that but I'm not sure why you are telling me that.

    Finally they're starting to get into that phase where they are basically adding games to the basic console bundle for the standard price. Adding a $60 game and bumping the price up $50 isn't a deal at all. I would love the bundle with Last of Us if only it didn't include that grand theft auto garbage. A Last of Us and Tomb Raider bundle would be reasonable and would be a killer bundle.

    You want a bundle for the majority and an extra game that no one Will buy it for. Thats marketing. Never give them 2 games because that Will stall the purchase of an new game.

    I'm glad that I didn't wait a year for a bundle. The year's more worth of gaming that I've had rather than waiting is worth whatever savings you're implying would have been had by waiting.

    I think what one person was saying in this thread is you can wait forever and the price will continue to go down. You've got to pick a point where it's worthwhile to you - and that will be different for different people. Without the early adopters the product will probably die off before the more conservative can get their hands on it. This holds true for pretty much any product.

    I for one recenty purchased The Last of Us and have so far been thoroughly surprised in a good way. The game is presented and displayed in a manner far above my expectations for a console.
