A bit late for me since I have had my PS3 since June last year :) But I wish they had a TV > 52" but < 70". The jump from $5k to $70K is a bit rich!

Plus it's hard to reconcile the price of the unit given in the US the 70" is about US$20k.

70" Bravia

Even given the lousy exchange rate of recent times and shipping and GST that's not even $40K here.




System One: Popcorn Hour A200,  PS3 SuperSlim, NPVR and Plex Server running on Gigabyte Brix (Windows 10 Pro), Sony BDP-S390 BD player, Pioneer AVR, Raspberry Pi running Kodi and Plex, Panasonic 60" 3D plasma, Google Chromecast

System Two: Popcorn Hour A200 ,  Oppo BDP-80 BluRay Player with hardware mode to be region free, Vivitek HD1080P 1080P DLP projector with 100" screen. Harman Kardon HK AVR 254 7.1 receiver, Samsung 4K player, Google Chromecast

Got a ps3, but could easily justify getting the deal and liquidating the PS3

Just bought my PS3, mainly as a Blu-Ray player, together with a 42" Panasonic Plasma. Can't wait to receive the shipment on Monday. Slightly off-topic but I want to tell everybody

If you bargain with retailers, you can easily get the W40 series for under $2,400, negating the savings.

Actually the 70" sony is now only $30K. Quite a drop from the previous model. They also have a 55" x series for $10K, which one of the home theatre mags said it was the best lcd tv available (and the 2nd best tv after the pioneer kuro).
