How much is a plane ticket to Sweden?? Edited. lol cheers bro. Have a bubble for the heads up o_O
A ticket to Sweden? That'll be 10 more PS3 owners and they'd have got an unbeatable deal. This game is big enough to sell PS3's anyway, these bundles are far more potent than the DLC. Sony have put together a great counter to the DLC, they have a GTA4 bundle that'll draw people away from the 360 and completely eclipse the DLC decision for those not in the know.
I still don't get why everyone thinks DLC is a big deal period. Playstation 3 is getting exclusive DLC as well as the XBOX 360. DLC was well balanced, the fact is the PS3 has the bundle and 360 doesn't. Plain and simple.
Where are you getting your info from? No mention of ps3 dlc. PS3 will probably get their own form of dlc later down the line and it could be exclusive too but by then it will be too late to market it as a selling point so no real point. I still believe ps3 hardware will outsell 360 when GTA4 comes out. Not like it isn't already outselling now anyway:D.
how can they give away the first 10?
I don't think the bundle is affected by the shortages.
sour candy or PS3 GTA4 bundle?????? someone help me decide
wtf! come on wal mart match this
lolololololololololololololol. ..yea right don't we all wish!
price match please!
lucky gamers, thats the best deal I have seen in like...ever. I would keep the game and sell the console, already got a 60GB, so I could put the money from the other console to better use. But to those who have been waiting, this is worth camping out.
lol i would keep the system. i want all my to include a ps3 in all my bedrooms.
I would but only one TV worthy of using the PS3 LOL, I would have to buy another large LCD for it... but I would definitely keep it if I had another large tv to play it in like a game room.
I would easily say, "keep the change kind sir"... :) I bet you someone stood there, looking for their change from a quarter...LMAO
darn lucky swedes. first they get cheap furniture now cheap games!
Well to be fair, we have Ikea's all over Europe
yeah but they keep all the best parts for themselves. thats why theres allways bits missing from our affordable swedish crap!
lol that made me laugh Have a bubble
the only good thing about Ikea are the delicious hot dogs you get at the end the furniture can lick my balls
i find it ridiculous lucky swedes indeed, i own a ps3 and would still buy that bundle
ACE!!!!!!!!!!!! what shop i will order ofline lol just for a 2nd ps3 to sell to game and bye more games for it
I wonder if this will stand with Sony?
its not ther loss its the shops theyll just be happy selling 10 more systems lol
it doesn't have to this is most likely a promo done by the shop itself to generate ineterest they probably paid Sony the full price to stock PS3's- what they do with them thereafter is up to them personally, i think its a great idea you make 10 people very happy and make sure people buy a PS3 from your store
i think its a great deal to but i was thinking Sony also makes a profit if people buy it at the regular price.
In Scandinavia (and perhaps all of Europe) all shops are free to set their own price on everything, bundled or not. Apparently because it promotes competition. There is no such thing as a retail price. I bought the discontinued 60GB PS3 5 months ago for 3400 NOK (680$) with 2 games and an extra controller, which is less than the 40GB costs even today. I'm sure 680$ is way above what it costs in the states, but that's how expensive stuff is here :) The offer only lasted a day or two and was mostly a PR-stunt which worked. It was all over the media. Scandinavia = Sweden, Norway, Denmark, etc for those who happens to not know.
In Germany all the stores have to keep the same base price with their sales tax so high.
'Apparently because it promotes competition. There is no such thing as a retail price.' Not 100% true, theres a Recomended Retail Price, which most stores sell it at to begin with (stores such as GAME, Woolworths etc), however retailers are free to charge what they like.
guhh.....i think i just drooled a bit...
is that $0.16 american? in euro's thats like $160 american :P
awh, why do i gotta go to the open zone for that statement? im american :P
OMG talk about a promotion!!!! i envy the people who manage to get those bundles.
Just checked the change in my pocket... yep I'll take 15 of those please...
Holy crap! Why don't we have deals like that in the states? Lucky bastards. Then again we did have the first 100 PS3 buyers get a free HDTV right? Wait... that was in Europe also, wasn't it? Grr. I'll never understand why US stores can't do cool stuff like that. All we have in any game store are 360 fans who talk nothing but 360. In another store there's people that don't know jack squat about gaming. And the other store is Best Buy or Circuit City. Either way, it sucks. BB&CC are overpriced anyway. $200 for an nVidia 6600 I think. >.>
Excpet you americans got Talladega Nights on Blu-ray for free when you got the PS3 4 months before US Europeans and at a cheaper price. Plus yous always get games well before us, you've had more SKUs, you've got a better store, games are cheaper. But I gues that all accounts for nothing when one EU country get a surprisingly cheap bundle. :P
is this real
You sure it's not a "sweden" version of GTA4 I don't know if I want a 20 min. game consisting of only Jack Black and Mos Def
throw the game is the bin, and resell the PS3, or the opposite, or... whatever
sucks to show up with a quarter to find out that they only accept exact change
it would suck more if you camp for days only to find that they will do a lottery for them lol :)
