Sony offering direct-to-customer 40Gb PS3 discount

What do you do when you don't want to drop the price of your console on the high street? You cut out retail, silly. Sony's offering a £40 discount on new 40Gb PS3s through, meaning you can pick a machine up for £269 right now.

Not if you are part of the Retail channel.


This could *seriously* backfire on Sony if the rest of the retailers decide to say "Fcuk Sony, I'm not going to stock, promote and sell their product if they are going to under-cut ME in the market."

This is a cardinal mistake. Wow.

Marquis_de_Sade3459d ago

you serious? I can get a 80gb model with LBP + Another game + Blu-ray + Blu-Ray remote for £30 more off This is a pointless move by SONY that wont help relations with retailers.

Seriously, just because its a deal by SONY regarding a SONY console, surely you can remove the fanboy specs and speak some truth?

whoelse3459d ago

Uh hello? This is the 40GB, not the 80GB. The 80GB is selling for the full price, the discontinued model is selling for £269 (£40 discount? No £30)

You two need to settle down. How do I have fanboy goggles on if I said 'IMO' it's a good deal?

So am I supposed to curse every single move Sony does?

thereapersson3459d ago

Around here, yes. You either bash Sony, or you are considered a "Dr**d". After all, it's the only explanation for fanboys coming into the PS3 section, complaining about Pro-PS3 articles...

I couldve sworn £40 is closer to $80

Marquis_de_Sade3459d ago (Edited 3459d ago )

Arsenal4ever, you obviously don't stay in touch with global affairs.

That said, I hope you beat Chelski today

whoelse3459d ago

The writer can't even do maths. Its £30 not £40.

So $46.143.

Yeah the value of the pound has dropped hugely lately.
