Sony and HMV to partner for PS3 Launch

GamesIndustry.biz has learned that Sony has chosen HMV as its official retail partner for the UK launch of the PS3.

Sony is due to announce full details of the European PS3 launch and price point next week - but sources have previously told GI.biz that the 60GB model will hit the shops on March 23, priced at GBP 425.

Now a source has revealed that HMV will be Sony's official launch partner, with a special midnight event set to take place at the retailer's flagship Oxford Street store.

Neither Sony nor HMV would confirm the deal, with HMV games boss Tim Ellis telling GI.biz, "There are no confirmed plans just yet with Sony regarding the launch of PS3."

What are you talking about ?
£425 is perfectly acceptable.

I can think of many less important things that are much more expensive.

It's always someone in the crowd who loves to get shafted!

Why in hell did they pick HMV, they should of picked Game or Gamestation as they are much cheaper than HMV. £425 is pretty expensive for a new console, unless your rich which it should be cheap for you.

i can,t believe people are acharely paying that sort of money for a overrated console.sony must be laughing all the way to the bank.sony must think you lot are a bunch of mugs.i know i do anyway.

Well there isn't any market here for them anyway.

The casual gamer/graphics whore market has been snapped up by Xbox 360.

The only guys left are those blindly faithful to Sony.
