The folks at Sony have reportedly come up with an idea to issue IOU's for consumers in Japan desperate to get some form of a guarantee on a PS3 early next year.
This is /great/ news.
Hey lil timmy WHat did you get for X Mas!?
I got a PS3 IOU!!! WEEEE!!!
This will just be like pre-ordering except you will defo get th PS3 console.Also could mean less sales for Wii & X360.
this sounds like a possible disaster waiting to happen. what if production of new PS3s become crippled due to some unforeseeable event and those who bought the vouchers never received their PS3s? damn, this just sounds like a "do or die" predicament for Sony.
what can you say...it's just hilarious.
Are you serious or are you really that smart? When there will be some production problems people will get it just later, simple as that. Sheesh some people on this site are funny as hell, must be Thammie's twin brother LOL
im a comedian, what did you expect?
I'm sorry but with 500 to 600 dollars the last thing I want is a piece of paper say I owe U. With all Sony's problems right now, and them not being straight foward about production delays of the PS3 in the first place. I wouldn't go for it. However there will be suckers out there willing to fall for it.
thats the most half assed thing ive ever seen
So basically Sony's financial problems have gotten so bad that they are now taking a loan out from all the people that want PS3s.
so this is the meaning of a paper launch? LOL
hey sony, print up 10 million, then you can say its the fastest selling [paper] console in history! the shareholders will looooove it!
Haha this is real funny.
They just took a multimillion dollar bank loan because they coulnd't put out more shares (they're on an alltime low) to finance some stuff, writing deep red marks all the time and now...
They are going to finance risky business with end-consumers money?
Imagine that. The choice. People can buy a paper and stare at it this Christmas or they can buy a 360 or Wii60 for the same money and game through the Christmas days into a next gen 2007 with Gears of War, Viva Piniata, Lost World, Forza 2 (and might stare to it for many months into 2007 as Sony is known for not able to deliver the stuff wouldn't there be 6 million in Spring 2006, then Christmas 2006 and now not until Spring 2007?)
It could be one of the last strange acts of a dying company. They mostly are going to search for strange kind of cashflows. And this certainly sounds like one
@ LandofSand: yeah lol and then state in little sentences at the end of the shareholdersreport
It's the number of papers printed, not sold actually. We found only one Japanese nuthead in a house for mental people that did sign it. He though he was going to get candy for it
Oh this is just rediculous and bull because their trying to keep potential sales from xbox and wii by offering these paper IOU'S I'm sorry but this is totally unethical and should not be allowed
..you just cant make this up. gwahaha..
Once again Sony proves to be R E T A R D E D
