Do you think Costco will have it cheaper than Amazon? Not sure there's going to be a price drop for awhile.

usually not, game consoles are usually price fixed because they make little to NO profit on them. I'd buy it from costco mainly for their return policy (I had two ps3's go bad on me within 2 years and I was able to return them each time to costco and get a new one.)

I must have good luck with electronics because I've never had anything fail while somewhat new. I was really thinking of getting a new Oppo for my Blu-ray duties but since my wife has really started enjoying these games the PS4 is going to carry that duty. Hoping the load times have improved but according to the specs 3x's faster is what I'm expecting and that would be sufficient.

I'm on my 7th console and will 2nd buying from Costco or anywhere else with liberal return policies. While I wasn't able to buy from Costco, I did buy the extended warranty that GS offered so my total out of pocket cost was 2.5 and 2 of my consoles are still working (knocks on wood).

Sorry, never said which system because this is a PS4 thread and I didn't want this to turn into a which system is better war. I think we as consumers of gaming consoles are in for a real threat this time around and I plan on getting both systems (XB1 & PS4) this time because over half of my XBL friends are jumping ship and going w/ Sony's PS4.

When the Xbox 360 released I held off from buying for nearly a year in hopes the RRoD had been sorted out but bought a warranty with GS just in case. So glad I did because the 1st 360 died after 9mo, 2nd went out in 31 days. Wish I had made a better buying decision and bought from a retailer like Sams Club or Costco which have good return policies but lesson learned. It does seems MS finally got it right with the final redesign of the Elite models and the slims as these are the two that are still working for me (knocking on wood again).

If it's starting to whine then it's time to change the thermal paste.

The whir is most likely due to dirty or clogged fans. Your PS3 probably needs a cleaning. Other causes for these problems are worn or failing fans or a failing hard drive (time to back up).
