    Modded is misleading in the title. Should state, "upgraded bundle".

    jeez, a 3rd rate accessory kit and a slow hdd arent exactly supercharged, if you have to buy a ps3 then buy the proper sony media remote and a decent hard drive and if you need one then get a charge stand.

    i can't see that it says "modded" anywhere on the box or the advert, just another thing taken out of context just to make a news item....................sudeki300

    I agree. Misleading title.

    And I think I would've preferred a 320 GB HDD at 7200 RPM instead. Meaning smaller capacity (3 HDDs in my PC, 2 TB summed... lol) but at least it would be faster at installing shіt.

    Isn't gamestop the ripoff company with the geeksquad (I don't live in the US). Someone should put up a nice flyer on their window with information on how to be ripped off professionally by shopping their.

    I mean come on, a six feet HDMI 1.4 cable???? The PS3 doesn't even have a 1.4 port. But wait, it's 3D ready!

    They are very creative in telling people the things the PS3 can do,and making it seem you need a supercharged version to do it.

    Thank you game stop by selling used crap to unknowing customers

    No bestbuy has the geek squad but they make up for it for having the best customer service in my area of the U.S. gamestop has the cheaper prices most of the time

    This is not a modded console.

    The box advert is fake, as all PS3 HAVE these features except for HD which is a lie. PS3 and 360 is only 720p and not 1080p as Gamestop claims.

    Gamestop will try to make people that you CANT play the latest PS3 games on other consoles, and same goes for Blu-Ray, PSN ++++++++

    The only sp4ecial thing is 500.GB HD and nothing more. Gamestop have to stop with their LIES.

    Umm, Im pretty sure Im getting 1080P out of my 360.

    Its just a slick way to try and move old stock. Give it a fresh coat of paint if you will. Even Gamestop is not stupid enough to sell modded systems.

    Virtua Tennis 3 is only one of the few native 1080p games on 360.

    Super Stardust (PSN) is one of the few native 1080p games on PS3.

    Neither 360 or PS3 can handle Gears of War, Killzone 3 etc.. in more than 720p.

    Gears of War 2 is still only true 720p, when upscaled to 1080p.

    If Gears of War 2 was native 1080p, 360 would not be able to run the game. ;)
