PS3 80GB MGS4 SKU holds in top three sales

By Marcus Lai:

Sales for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 SKU held in the top five sales at this week following steady availability for the in-demand product.

The MGS4 PS3 80GB SKU ranked at No. 3 on Tues. It held at a No. 3 rank last week.

The MGS4 PS3 80GB SKU includes a copy of the Metal Gear Solid 4 game and a Dualshock 3 controller for $499.99.

Amazon is limiting sales to one per household due to high demand.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is the latest entry in the top-selling stealth action franchise. The new title is said to be Snake's final mission in an attempt to foil Liquid Snake and his army.

Sony this month announced that it will retail a new $399 80GB PS3 SKU this fall.

Additionally, it recorded a Q1 profit in its game division from a $250 million loss one year ago

I don't know why sony does not realize that the real sku that people want is the 80 gb one with all the cool features. I'll be damn if something was to happen to my 60 gig ps3 and sony was to send me a 40 one. They should keep both sku in the market. the 40 gb leaving the option for a lower end model for people that are not able to afford the higher end one. Its good to give the consumer an option. I love my 60 one but some people are just fine having a 40 one.

I think i wont be surprised to see another 400,000 ps3s sold in and fs canada sold 1000 ps3s in 30 minutes day before yesterday.

so definitely july is shaping up to be as good as june for Sony and ps3

Because it seems that its the last model that will have BC for PS1 and PS2 games. SONY MIGHT BE getting rid of bc, I think thats a big mistake.


if it ever goes hay wire on me I would be piss . The 60gig is the best of the sku .

I agree with you.

I take care of my 60GB (250GB) PS3 better than I take care of my dog

i'm going through that issue right now with my 60gb. i got a warranty through Circuit City so i'm hoping i can get the gift card back soon enough to buy this bundle.

they said i would get $649 back on the card so at least i'll have $100 extra.
