"The Best Buy Geek Squad is offering an updated firmware PS3 console for $329.98. While such a service would help those who don't have internet at home, the fact that new games often come bundled with the latest firmware required to play makes it look a little less valuable than it already is." | more

Wow... i cant believe that. As big as Best Buy is, they should be ashamed of themselves for making customers look like their stupid. Something like 29.99 is still overpriced but reasonable since ur paying someone by the hour to do it.
