Send me a PM. No promises, but I'll see what I can do.

Two-and-a-half feet? That's friggin' huge! Someone at work was saying it was some huge, non-standard thing. I was hoping it'd be a 3.5" PC style SATA, since that's the kind that comes in the 10,000 RPM variety.

I just wonder what kind of DRM is in the software on the factory HD in order to prevent you from upgrading your shit on your own. It is, afterall, a Sony product.

That would be bigger than the system itself. It should read 2.5"(laptop size, but the frame can hold a standard PC size). Shame on them for making such a mistake on their own friggin' website.

Today's Penny-Arcade has a little to do with PS3 vs Wii

My daughter asked for a pink X-box 360 controller for her birthday. Now Yobun is teaching her how to play Beautiful Katamari. She seams to be picking it up faster than I did so I think we are raising another gamer.
