so does it bitstream HD audio is it:

says
Audio output: LPCM 7.1ch, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS-HD, AAC.

Thankfully i am selling of my old ps3 this month. :yahoo:

But then again the build quality makes it look cheap.

PS3 price drops to Rs 19,990 in India

Sony Computer Entertainment India has revealed that the PlayStation 3 will receive an immediate 20% price drop in India. The PS3, currently priced at Rs 24,990, will drop to Rs 19,990 as early as this evening, and will come bundled with two games Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.

The slim PS3 would take time to come to India, and may not even make it here in September, as Europe and America get priority when it comes to shipments. We were also told that when the slim PS3 does come to India, it would most probably be priced at Rs 19,990, but may not carry any free games.

No it can't yet and highly doubt it will in the future.

Linux - geeks - Oh yes, But I think most people didn't bother after installing it

I am actually looking to get rid of my 60GB ps3 (with backward compatibility for ps2). I might be going to US next month, and will buy a slim ps3. Anyone interested in 60GB PS3 ?

60gb one doesn't have the feedback remotes I guess? Which are there in 80gb? Not sure though.

If you read the fat PS3 spec's it states the same, in my understanding Bitstreaming needs a hardware component which is missing and hence won't be added via a firmware update.

No. the original remote did not have force feedback. But u can buy one off the market. Works with the original ps3 as well

ok - then I will buy the original brand new ps3 tomorrow for 19,990 :licklips:
Glad I didn't last month :)

Anant don't buy a Ps3 for watching blu ray movies (its region locked and also its not hackable)but if you are into gaming then you are more then welcome. Read your second thread and I think that your wife is intellegent.
