Best Buy Co. Inc. stores will price cut select game titles for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 in a new week-long video game sale.
"The company this week said that the Xbox 360 hardware outsold the PS3 by 3-to-1 on Black Friday, according to internal retail data sales figures." They just had to throw that in there, didn't they? :) Anywho, call me crazy, but I may pick up Dangerous Hunts and the Simpsons game at those prices!
"The company this week said that the Xbox 360 hardware outsold the PS3 by 3-to-1 on Black Friday, according to internal retail data sales figures." how dare they state the truth! Who knows maybe Microsoft paid them to say that and it's all a lie! News is News... and though it may hurt some Sony fans feelings... that's news that need to be told... so 3rd party developer take notes and focus on the console that matters.
It's not like the information is incorrect, it just doesn't belong in that article. It's about price drops and sales for the coming week, what does Black Friday sales information have to do with that?
Your such a dumbass Bladestar. This article should have nothing to do with the ratio of systems sold on Black Friday. Its about cheap PS3 and 360 titles. That is why I mentioned that. I never said it was incorrect. I know the 360 outsold the PS3. Duh, anybody knows that. This article sucks because of that fact. Why would the title be "Best Buy to price cut PS3, Xbox 360 titles Sun." yet the body of the article contains, "Microsoft on Sept. 5 discounted all Xbox 360 hardware in the U.S. between $50 to $80." "The company this week said that the Xbox 360 hardware outsold the PS3 by 3-to-1 on Black Friday, according to internal retail data sales figures." That doesn't make any sense... callahan realized this.
@pansenbaer - ohh wow... did I hurt your feelings? I'm am really sorry that the xbox 360 is beating the PS3 3:1... (actually I am not)... anyways... if this would be about the PS3 beating the xbox 360 3:1 you wouldn't be crying like a little baby (anybody please get this kid a pacifier!). Why does the article say, "The company this week said that the Xbox 360 hardware outsold the PS3 by 3-to-1 on Black Friday, according to internal retail data sales figures."? well... what did you want that the author write an entire article dedicated to saying that? The guy wrote an article that include all important news about Best Buy... get over it... wahhhhh wahhhh!
Wow....just...wow. Honestly, I DON'T CARE THAT THE 360 BEAT THE PS3 3:1 ON BLACK FRIDAY!! I don't know I can make that any clearer. I was merely pointing out the fact that the title of the article has nothing to do with that fact! And you are wrong. If the article stated the PS3 ousold the 360 3:1 I would still be very confused as to why it was in this article. Its like writing an article talking about how the PS3 has seen a 13% increase from last year and then mentioning how the new arcade 360's don't come with a hard drive. Its one of those WTF moments. It just doesn't make sense. ::Please get Bladestar some understanding...and then a big glass of shut the hell up to wash it down::
You guys get to worked up over this crap seriously. Sure it's the truth and doesn't belong but we all have to realize that there are fanboys on both sides and this is just how it's going to be.
See I'm getting worked up over how dumb Bladestar is acting. I honestly don't care about the sales thing, but he is just being ridiculous.
Somebody please start an online petition and call the web site journalism consortium to force this guy to remove that the xbox 360 is beating the PS3 3:1 before pansenbaer commit suicide! It's the best there is no right or wrong way of writing an article... someone posted this article here... the guy is entitle to write his article how ever he wants.. He decided to write two article into one? Get over it... I find it hilarious that you went straight for the kill, "Your such a dumbass Bladestar." haha! Personal attacks and calling names! is that suppose to show that you mean what you say? "I honestly don't care about the sales thing" so stop making a big deal about it.. and stop trying to find properly structure article on the web specially written by regular gamers... Relax dude.. otherwise you will make it too obvious (like now) that you are suffering the fact that the PS3 is losing 3:1! haha! <runs and take cover before pansenbaer grabs a knife and try to kill me.>
You just won't get it will you. I'm not making a deal about the sales thing. I'm making a deal about you thinking I'm making a big deal about the sales thing. That is where this all stemmed from. "They just had to throw that in there, didn't they? :) " That's what I said. See the smiley face at the end? It was a lighthearted crack at the way the article was written. Then you come in with, "how dare they state the truth! Who knows maybe Microsoft paid them to say that and it's all a lie! News is News... and though it may hurt some Sony fans feelings... that's news that need to be told... so 3rd party developer take notes and focus on the console that matters." ...with the thought that I even cared about the 3:1. But yes, I have gotten slightly defensive because you are putting words and feelings in my mouth that I simply don't agree with. That is why I am angry...because you just don't get it. Calling you a dumbass was not meant to 'mean what I say' but to call you out. Your reply was that of a dumbass; someone that didn't think before they spoke. Hey, I'll be the first to admit that I've seen most of your posts and a lot of them can offer something for people to appreciate, but when your inner fanboy comes out, they just reek of fail.
you are crazy.
They also have a number of DS games on sale, and gift cards and sales on certain Wii games. There's also a sale on Guitar Hero World Tour for PS3. Plus a $50 gift card for 360 systems when purchased with certain games. (Sorry, not trying to spam. Just have a copy of the ad in my hand...St. Louis papers publish them on Saturday). Good time to stock up on gifts for yourself or others.
the best deal to date for the ps3 is teh sonystyle.com credit card. then on your ps3 purchase receive a $150 credit.. 80gb ps3 = $250 adults or new young adults only with good credit.
Is there an age limit to it?
the best deal to date for the 360 is the sonyrewards card. Make a $299 and up purchase and get a $150 credit. Purchase had to be made at an authrized dealer like best buy or circuit city. So 60gb 360 $299-$150= $150 for a 60gb 360!
prices are BASED on the 399 -150 = 249, but you can get it cheaper if you buy it through Dell + sony card + coupon ~ = $180. It is confirmed by the sony's CR since I called them myself and ordered one for my bro. You'll have to fill out a form though if you want the 150 cred buying through Dell.
Here I come
turok for 15 and allpro football 2k8 for 10 ... but that was before the price cut...
@ Slinger420 I would definitely rent Far Cry 2 (unless you already did) before buying it. It gets repetitive after awhile. Some of the missions (especially the store missions) feel the same and it gets repetitive. Not a bad game but disappointing. Just my opinion.
Far Cry 2 and Endwar are both Ubisoft...I'm gonna rent FC2 before buying; I hated the Endwar beta.
its not really out of place. Its an article about Best Buy and their holiday sales. The information at the end in relevant. No need to get upset anyway. It doesn't affect anyone.
"Additionally, it restocked the backwards compatible PS3 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 SKU at $499.99." Those are going to sell out QUICK.
i've found amazon.ca a great place for games regarding price. they've got new titles for $53.99 as which other retailers (b&m) are selling them for $59.99 if the prices continue this way at amazon, i'll be buying my future games from them.
I hope Endwar and Far Cry 2 are on sale for the PS3 too. I don't see a good reason the 360 versions should be but not the PS3 versions. I'd buy both at those sale prices. I already have MGS4 and don't want the other games.
MGS4 for $29.99 at rogers plus right now, take that best buy.
I guess this week long sale will only add to 360 sales. 4-1 maybe???
"Microsoft on Sept. 5 discounted all Xbox 360 hardware in the U.S. between $50 to $80. The company this week said that the Xbox 360 hardware outsold the PS3 by 3-to-1 on Black Friday, according to internal retail data sales figures." At the endo fo the article about the week long price drops and other deals, they are informing readers that the Xbox 360 recently had a price drop. Then they quote Microsoft letting people know that sales have gone up. It's not as much gloating as it is passing along information. Had they not mentioned the price drop, it would be completely out of place. At the same time, if Sony had dropped the price of the PS3 and their sales were the ones that increased, the article would have reflected it. The bottom line is this is an article about price drops for shoppers. The quote is within context since it is an indication of sales trends. Outside of the Wii, the Xbox 360 is the hot sales item in game consoles this year as reflected by sales trends. -Death
"Additionally, it restocked the backwards compatible PS3 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 SKU at $499.99." Umm, no it didn't.
Some of the gang on the official Playstation forums were lucky enough to get some while they were available. These pop up from time to time and are sold almost immediately. -Death
Deceiving, should be an and instead of a coma in there champ....
sucks that the actual console doesn't get a price cut :(, my b-day is in 7 days...
Now i can finally get Dangerous Hunts 2009!
