It's a pricing duel that gets shriller and sharper by the day. Amid buzz of Microsoft cutting prices of its Xbox 360 consoles on Monday, arch rival Sony said it has another trick up its sleeve to seek cost advantages.
Indians are too smart for that!
The Last Guy.
Damn right no wonder 360 flopped there!!!!!!!!!!!!
..to save money
As long as they don't do voice-overs in their games then I don't mind. No offense but they have a really deep accent which is hard to understand. Edited for narindp's convenience.
Well having worked with remote software people in India for a few years, I can say this: - save money on cheap labor? yes - hidden costs? yes, delays due to culture (they tend to underestimate times), holes in initial product due to communication gap, and a lot of typos and mislabeled stuff.
Good move considering india is very highly sort after when it comes to IT/programming etc. Lots of high tech companies have moved parts of there operations there.
At least MS just runs their customer service calls through India....Sony's running their entire games division through it. :p
"they have really a deep accent" you don't even make sense yourself so who are you trying to judge?
Should have been "they have a really deep accent".
bought myself a 60GB PS3.. it stopped recognising the blu-ray drive around 2.40. now sony is telling me that i can't get new 60/80GB because they don't market it anymore... so all they are freaking giving me is a 40Gb and reimbursing the extra money. i've been let down by sony big time... and before anyone thinks i'm lying.. here's the link, i've been talking about it from the time it gave me a problem. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
The same thing happened to me. It's not the firmware that caused the malfunction. It is very unfortunate,but it seems we are in those 1-2% unlucky individuals. Since mine was a Japan launch import,I was not able to replace it and I decided to buy a new 80 gb(previously had the 60gb). It has been working like a charm. If you wish to replace the part by yourself,it would cst you around $150,but it is risky.
whao... bad thing to happen, man. i can import 80GB but if it gives me problem.. i'll end up with 40GB (whatever comes next) because sony doesn't sell higher end models. i tried telling sony people that i bought it so that i can play PS2 games on it etc.. but sh!t.
m$ just got thier territory conquered. Too bad m$ doesn't give back to Americans by providing jobs. Why would they do that when they can pay peanuts for elephants. Sony got some real ethical work for them now! The joy of assembling the finest console. Its better than dealing with winy kids & thier broken xbox. Thats just immoral. go Sony! Thats how its done! Sony is hiring. Now the indians will pick up the next rrod call & say get a ps3 stupid! Ali babba is out! Sony is hiring ex microsoft employees
LMFAO. Enjoy those hairy-ass krishna games! And at and even more limited budget? But....TEH CELL??!!! How will they afford the NASA engineers to FINALLY decode its true power?!?!?
Better for us as competition arises but India is really Microsoft territory. Microsoft hires and pays for their visas so many Indians and a good chunk of MS HQ in redmond has Indian culture. Indian = inhabitants of the country India. More power to sony though for giving it a try. At least now they are concerned about gamers, better late than never I say.
They pulled a NIKE
just another mistake
