Gamikaze.pl has revealed that Sony sold over half a million PS3 consoles in Poland. To celebrate the fact the company is giving away 2 free minis games - Jewel Keepers: Easter Island and Urbanix.
LOL they gave them in USA on some different event, so not a big deal ;>
Of course it's not a big deal. If Sony gave you say a free copy of The Last of Us and God of War Ascension you'd shrug and say "...Meh." because it wouldn't be a big deal. /s
no, coz it was allready available, and now they are making something out of nothing...sure - licensing, permisions etc, kind of cool - but mainly ive got it on US psn account.
Okay you already have both games but ever stopped to think that perhaps others don't? Not everyone outside the States have a US PSN account.
Making something out of nothing is preferable to making nothing out of something. Why are people always trying to convince us we shouldnt enjoy something nice Sony does, even when its the littlest thing?
Sure, but why do they say they are special and all that stuff, mostly its only PR crap.
Very good. Or in polish bardzo dobrze . /lol
Sony is very Strong
Best system on the market with vast array of Ps3 exclusives that shows how gaming should really be done!!!!!
Agreed. In terms of a console recommendation I always go with the PS3. One of my friends (who is on a budget) was considering getting an Xbox 360, subscribing to Xbox Live and finding a game to play. I told him the Xbox platform is a good one, but if he went that route he'd have to pay for the console, Xbox Live as well as the game itself. So instead he got a PS3 at a discount, signed up on PSN and was very happy to see that DCUO is available on the PS3 (he plays this game a lot). All he had to pay for was the console. Everything else was free. On top of that he's venturing into the exclusives...boy does he have a lot to play!
Meanwhile MS sells 1 million in the USA....lol
great comment cstyle...no body mentions location they just say xbox beats ps3 by s certain number but we all know world wide who the winner is....mostly because sony makes so many exclusives for their fans oh well we all know how the wii is doing but 360 only gets support because of it being entertainment...it might as well not even be called a gaming system thats for the nintendo and sony platforms...i do like all 3 since i spent money on all 3. i got xbox for games i cant play on ps3
Worldwide leader is still the wii last time I checked. 360 is second and Sony gets the bronze. They are also last in profits and first in losses. this won't change the rest of this gen.
and when gamers go to install more than one game on the 4GB models --->their face O_O
Meanwhile sony is leading world wide! :) Meanwhile in Europe. Meanwhile in japan. you make no point. lucky you! They are selling 4gb xbox for $99! /s
... a million wouldn't be all that impressive, given the difference in population size between Poland and the US, so that would be nothing to brag about. That aside, you're REALLY clinging to that miniscule hold the 360 has on its position, aren't you? Nevermind the fact that last year was the first time since the PS3's launch that it didn't outsell the 360. Nevermind the fact that the PS3 has sold in less than six years what it took the 360 nearly seven years to reach. Nevermind the PS3 being the most expensive system on the market since launch. All that matters is that the 360 is ahead, right? Not that a good number of those sales are from defective replacements. Not the fact that the last out of the gate is charging hard. Frankly, shouldn't the 360 be ashamed to only have the number it has, when systems that came out a year later are either ahead in sales or right there with it. But hey, I can't put sales in my system and play em. Need games for that. And guess which company is still providing those.
That RROD argument is so old. MS has outsold sony by a wide margin in the US. You can't really say they are all replacements because the facts don't back it up. Even if that were true, wouldn't that make sony look even worse. A rivals console is breaking and gamers are still choosing it over theirs. How do you explain that?
The argument being "old" doesn't make any less valid, so your point there is nonexistent. Nobody said they were ALL replacements, but a million or two replacement consoles bought out of warranty(not an unreasonably number, given a reported 50%+ failure rate) changes the numbers considerably, don't you think? A rival's cheaper console that they've grown attached to has sold more, but ISN'T SELLING MORE since your own console hit shelves. Exactly how would that make Sony look worse? The PS3, at five years old, was hovering around 60 million; the 360 at the same age was closer to 50 million, even with the lower price and boost from replacements included. Who looks bad?
"given a reported 50%+ failure rate" newsflash - sonyplaystation3istehbestest.c om reporing that the 360s failure rate is 50% doesnt mean its true lol. the 360s failure rate is nowhere near that. it is not even anywhere near 10%. when microsoft announced the 3 year warranty it was because the failure rate had gone outside their acceptable limit. this acceptable limit is 3%, same for all consoles. so 3.0000001% is outside of this. that is the ONLY official failure rate that has ever and will ever be given. random sony site giving a made up percentage doesnt make it official.
Meanwhile the PS2 still outsells the 360 in Japan. Just stating the obvious like you.
meanwhile in last 12 months ps3 outsold x360 WW: Sony FY2011: $5.5B Loss; PS3 is #1 despite Thai Flood http://m.neogaf.com/showthr... Unit Sales For The Fiscal Year Ended March 31 (Unit: Million) ps3 13.9 million x360 13.6 million for jan-march 2012. quarter ps3 1.9 million x360 1.4 million ps3 LTD software sales: 595 million with 63.9 million hardware = tie ratio 9.3 microsoft of course doesn't release software numbers (darkfalz why is that?), we only have NPD estimates for US: LTD software tie ratio in US ending december 2011. by estimates by NPD. x360 9.1 ps3 8.3 wii 7.7 http://www.google.hr/url?q= http://www.gamasutra.com/vi... imagine how catastrophic x360 tie ratio is WW when we know how poor x360 software sells outside US and UK.
well if all microsoft cares about is apps for entertainment and kinect sooner or later they might loose support gamers like games which sony delivers microsoft you get some exclusives 2-3 main exclusives a year not counting the kinect games
Good choice Poland you rock. : )
that's a nice sales for ps3 in poland
Good for those Pollocks, now when do us American Pollocks get some free games?
ps3 still needs to reach 200$ price point, same price x360 arcade cost last 4 years. imagine how will ps3 demolish x360 then
yes and then microsoft would drop their prices further too. The impact of the $200 ps3 is now mitigated. p.s. stop spamming pm's with fanboy crap.
Just click on his name and report him. It seems like a multiple account created for spamming people - I see this every once in a while, probably by someone who's bubbles went down to 1 and was already blocked by most people. It would be neat if N4G displays IP addresses attached to accounts. I'm pretty sure we'll see some funny results.
Old I grab both games 2 weeks ago from facebook.
