There is a rumor about 11.000 PS3 units hitting Australian retailer shops. The first question that comes to anyone's mind at hearing this is: why so few?
A leading Australian retailer (Harvey Norman Computers), told me Sony will be filling all preorders. He also said, if you don't preorder don't count on getting one. There are 100 preorders just in my local store. And I know my local EB has 70. I went with Harvey Norman because they gave me $100.00 off and a savings voucher sheet. The sheet gives specials on PS3 games and extras. I talked to a guy in the store who was also preordering a PS3. He just sold his XBOX 360. There's definately a strong demand for it here, rest assured.
they'll be guaranteed of being able to brag about "selling out" their release shipments.
But they will have sold their shipments. And not brag about how many they shipped like Microsoft.
their is only a few because it rushed again like the other launches sony has had this gen, and of course they will sell them all, any console launch their would sell 11 000, nintendo, xbox, or sony lol
@Master of Menace
xbox is doing fine right now, dont know what ur talking about, they have had a year advantage thats why they are in the lead, but they are still in the lead, nintendo is second and sony is last
But it's not a massive lead. The PS3 is also doing fine. The European launch will only help bridge the gap. There's going to be more than 11,000, that is just a rumour. Like every other rumour that's been debunked. And it's not being rushed, this is the biggest launch ever, with 30 titles available. It's going to impress alot of people, here. And let's not forget, Sony are still the leaders in the market.
yeah i never said it is a massive lead though did i??? i think u are just telling ur self that not me or anyone else..
yes sony does have the majority of the market share for gaming, but their console for this gen does not, will they, its highly possible, and i also wouldnt be way surprised if it didnt
My friend sold his 360 BLa Bla Bla. LOL You are a 1st class HATER. 11,000 in not alot at all but Sony is doing what they can. The article is not even about the 360. And $700.00 is not going to go over well at all. No matter how big the fan base is $700.00 is too [email protected]
I hate the PS3 Bla Bla Bla I Hate sony there just liars Bla Bla Bla I love Bill Gates Bla Bla Bla. Its all just sounds the same from any of the Xbots. Bash Bash Bash.
Not trying to Flame anyone here just tired of the same debate about anything posted for the PS3. When there are millions and millions more that think otherwise. If people would just forget the fan war for a while. Because no one know's who the victory will be in the end and who cares. I think good competition between all consoles will be better for the gamers.
And on another note. The Article
This just sounds to much like a rumor to me. and i would hope that it is not true it would be a real let down if it was. but i cant believe sony would drop so little in a very promising market for them with all the games that are to launch at same time.
Hmm I know who your is really bashing. I know your post is directed at me. Read post #1,2.1, and 3.1. My post was directed at him. Play games for fun. =]
Sony is making mistakes and it is apparent. Just think about it. If you are ignorant or bias you make up names like XBOT and green head to refer to people who have another opinion than yours. Xbox owners are happy with the 1 year the 360 has been available and you PS3 fan boys acting all bitter and bashing are just silly.
My comment was not directed to you personally. It was to all the people of this site that seem to say the same thing over and over again. I'm sorry if my use of Xbot offended you but i was just trying to get my point across that most of the bashing posts come from the Xbox side.
I know there are some extreme PS3 fans as well and No I am not one of them. I have allot of respect for both systems and both have there good traits and bad ones. I will say that as of now i am a PS3 owner and think that the system is fantastic. RFOM is a A++ game and the only one that i am playing as of now.
It is true that there is a lack of quality games right now but by middle to late this year that will not me the case.
Well thats my story and good gaming to ya.
THAHAMMER is being REAL! lol
