I'll find a way of getting it working through VGA on my monitor. Apparently, its rather easy to make a cable to do so using the component set.

Not a bad deal I don't think, and I'll pick up Metal Gear Solid 2 because I haven't played that yet

Then, I'll have a PC/Xbox 360/PS3 to play all the games that arrive
or you could buy a nice lcd tv
if you dont have a nice tv with your ps3 you lose so much imo

I'm happy with my Xbox 360 through VGA running in 720p, so if I can get the PS3 to do the same, I'll be extremely happy That'd turn into my entertainment console, with the Xbox 360 being a backup games machine.

We'll get a HDTV some time in the future, but for the time being, I think the 60GB versions a good investment, for SACD, Playstation 2 support (Though I don't have any PS2 games...). Any idea if Metal Gear Solid 2 could become downloadable on the network service?

See, I'm no fanboy

Why do you only have it set to 720p? For broadcasting?

Think about it, Xbox 360 has been available in the US for 2 years now and the PS3 has only been available for 1 year. According to Wikipedia, Xbox 360 currently has approx 375 games (released & unreleased) in total while PS3 has approx 295 games (released & unreleased). Xbox 360 released a total of 112 games in the year before PS3 even came out so give it time, this console as alot of potential!

The store I was going to get 2 games and 2 blu-ray films has ran out of the stock of the games... and will have to wait until Wednesday for them to come back, yet... they said theres around 200 60GB ones left... so I don't know... But while that happens, they've pushed the price up to 375.99 and included an accessory pack instead.

I've found another though thats selling for the same without 2 blu-ray films so I may have a fall back option.

No reason why this shouldn't work either, so I'll be able to connect to my monitor still:
