As of a few days ago, PS3 prices just dropped by $100 across the u.s.
This is just a temporary move to clear out old inventory of the now discontinued 60 gb model. Once those are sold out, you'll only be able to get the new (i.e. sans the emotion chip) 80 gb model back up to the original $600 price.
Take it from this SUPER videogame nerd, the Xbox 360 is the only way to go. I don't like Micro$oft as much as the next guy, but they have far and away the superior system this generation.
The only reason I might be able to justify the purchase of a PS3 is if you are a huge movie dude and just want a cheap Blu-Ray player. Even then, HD-DVD's will win the format wars due to the simple fact that the pornography industry and Wal-mart are supporting this format. Plus they're already manufacturing dual disk (Blu-Ray and HD-DVD) stand-alone players that'll be dirt cheap in 2 years.
Some more bad-ass looking games that I can't wait to play, besides GTA IV:

Creepy 50's noir underwater city where you kill bloodsucking little girls by mutating yourself. Flash based site, so you've got to dig a bit for the videos.
