I know this gets asked every few months, but I'm on the market for a new projector and am not sure if I should hold out for a new Panny or pick up the 8000u.

IMO, neither. Why are you limiting yourself to Panasonic?

I'm mostly sticking with the Panasonic for the price and the Game mode. I'd love the new Epson but have heard mixed things about the lag time with games and the softened picture when in the "fast mode". I'm probably 50/50 with games and movies.

One of the sales guys or someone like Mark above can give better advice than me, but if you are using a 1.78 screen (and don't need the lens memory of the Panny) I would consider a Sony as well which is generally considered a better projector vs the Panasonic, has low lag time and is good all around. That is what I would be looking at in your shoes assuming you are using a 1.78 screen and don't need lens memory.
