Some of you guys definately seem to know your shit... so, should i really spend the extra money and get the hard drive (if i won't seemingly need it)?
No you should spend the extra money and get the PS3. We are talking about 100 bucks here....

...If I told you I can get you a top of the line Blue Ray DVD player for a hundred bones....would you do it??

Aside from that and most importantly, my XBOX was in for repairs 4 times....in a year. Its awful and it sounds like a jet is taking off every time you use it.
