40g has wireless too (i only know that b/c its what I use

I did consider those when I pondered which model to get and i decided on the 40 b/c the card readers and extra slots would sit there unused. I have my PC for the card readers for video and pictures, I donít have a PSP so I donít need to worry about memory stick readers, the most ill use is two controllers at once and or one controller with a headset.
i think the way SCEA is marketing the PS3 is very annoying b/c they almost push consumers away from the high end models. i hate bundles and i hate making decisions as to which model to get. either way you look at it the consumer always seems to lose because they (we) either pay too much (for items that go unused or space on a bigger HDD that is unused) or not enough (as you do need to have the extra USB's, card readers, backwards compatibility, etc..) for the system that you wanted in the first place.
call me old fashion but i am loving my PS3 but the decision making process involved in getting it left me with a "bad taste of cigarettes and hookers in my mouth" (Family guy quote)
