Amazon Sells out of MGS4 Bundles in Seven Minutes

mgsbox2-thumb-1.JPG

Ho…lee…crap. I knew the new 80GB PS3 bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4 was in high demand, but still, wow. At about 10 AM PST, Amazon.com began taking pre-orders again for the upcoming bundle. By 10:07, they were all gone; thousands of them in mere minutes. So many people flooded the site in fact, that it looks like Amazon.com is down for the moment. It makes sense really, considering you’re basically getting a system with a top-notch exclusive thrown in to boot, which is one heck of a deal. I was actually placing a pre-order myself earlier today, but didn’t want to wait the extra few days it would take for the bundle to arrive. I really hope I don’t end up kicking myself for that decision next Thursday.

Hey Norbit…..or anyone else who may know,

The PS3 80GB version comes with full PS2 backward compatibility does it not?

Go Marlins!!!!

if it’s the same as the old version, then it should have limited backwards compatability. i’m hoping it’s full BC though :mrgreen:

Ahh, so that’s what took Amazon down. I saw it on the news and of course the news didn’t know why Amazon was down, but it totally makes sense.

This 80gb has the same compatibility that the normal 80gb do. So far I can play all the metal gear solid’s without any problems, playing MGS3 again right now!

correct me if i am wrong but i believe the difference in the 60 and 80gb units was that in the 60 it was hardware emulation and in the 80s its software that does it.
