Interesting. Sony is not in the position to slash the hardware price but they could have a chance from the software side.

I'm impressed by the way, about how slow is Resistance 2 selling, unless VgChartz is getting its numbers dramatically wrong.

Danja3208d ago

thats great news , hopefully more ppl will buy these games , they're more than worth the price...

FantasyStar3208d ago

Very cleaver marketing.
I didn't know about Shopto.net and I've already got all the games their promoting....but they have made it onto my Favorites list.

shopto are doing what retailers call unbundling. manufacturers offer them a bundle. in this case it is a ps3 with motorstorm, lbp and r2 for a discount. shopto then separates the items and sells them individually for what it thinks will generate greater profits.

technically, sony doesn't like this but it can't really say no because shopto are buying such a large number of bundles of sony.

many retailers are doing the same with the xbox 360 wireless controller plus lego indiana jones and kung fu panda bundle. they are stripping the bundles because they believe they can get more money selling the items separately.

don't think either sony or ms are 100% pleased with it but at least it generates decent revenue in both instances.

They have Prince of Persia for a decent price. Going to keep a close eye and hope it goes cheaper.

TheHater3208d ago

dude you might as well get it now before the price goes up back again

PirateThom3208d ago

I'm tempted, but in the past few weeks I've bought quite a few games... just grabbed Mirror's Edge for £25 yesterday as well...

Stupid Christmas getting in the way of game buying! :(

TheHater3208d ago

I borrowed this game from my friend because I spend about $250 on games in the last month and a half. I had to skip several games I wanted because of Xmas

ezcex3208d ago

where is the 19.99 for the U.S.

Spike473208d ago

why not take off $10 off of LBP? I'm overwhelmed with the amount of PS3 games.
