Default Refurb PS3 for $500?

Just curious if you all thought this was a good deal. Game Stop near me has a refurbished ps3 (60gb model) for $500. I dont know if it comes with the box or not, but it comes with everything it does new. I have maybe $50 worth of DVDs I can trade in as well, which would take me down to around $450 out of pocket.

The only thing I'm hesitent about is the fact I really feel ps3 will drop $100 in price within the next several months, and dont wanna get screwed.

I bought my PS3 from Slacker's. I traded in a ton of old stuff (NES, top-loading NES, ton of NES games, DVDs, PS2 games, etc. etc.) and had about $250 credit for used items. They had a used PS3 going for $500, so I only paid $250 out of pocket for a PS3. I was pretty stoked. Couldn't really beat the deal.

They don't expect a price drop until late 2007 to early 2008, so either buy that or you can wait awhile. If there is a price drop, maybe you can snag another refurbished one for $450 or even $400 (though I doubt it).
