E3 is certainly different than it used to be. It may not be good or what you expect, but you'll never know unless you go. You have an opportunity that others would love to have, I'd say don't waste it!
I don't think I would ever buy a launch system, even if there was a game I really wanted that was available on launch day. Any problems that occur with launch systems are usually fixed in the next batch of systems released. Plus, it's usually hard to get a system when it launches due to high demand anyway.
" @The_Laughing_Man: hey will a firmware update from Sony rectify this...if so will the newer games about to be released(GOW3) have it on the disc itself....Im asking this since my local servers wont let me join PSN and I cant get firmware updates. "
I am wondering this as well. What about the people who CANT connect to the PSN to get the fix.... "
Perhaps they will create a "request a free disc" program that has updated firmware on it to fix the issues.
