Sony gives away 46' Plasma TVs at PS3 launch

Sony sweetens the official launch event by dishing out HDTVs to everybody who queued up for the new console at midnight.

Around 120 people had joined the queue shortly before midnight, and if the prospect of getting their hands on the latest bit of high-tech gaming hardware, along with a complimentary copy of Resistance: Fall of Man, wasn't enough, Sony had one final trick up its sleeve.

Just minutes before the tills were due to start ringing, a Sony representative made the shock announcement that everybody registered in the queue would receive a free Bravia 46" HDTV, something which took some time to sink in with the gobsmacked crowd.

Also this strategy is called desperate.

So you could actually connect your PS3 to the TV...though I don't think most people would mind springing for the cables if just given a Bravia...but you know how people can be!

Guess it beats the love boat from Sony.. xD

Hell, Microsoft is being SO childish. Look here:

"Anyone visiting the webpage saw an Xbox 360 branded site that "welcomes" Sony to the next generation and chides the electronics giant for being "late"."

46 feet, man that'd be crazy.

@5..but as far as if it plasma or not, i didn't write the article. if they said 46" plasma, then thats what THEY said. i think i found the story on one site but the original source was Gamespot and thats where it said, "free Bravia 46" HDTV" but the site i found the story on said plasma and thats where i got the title from. moving too fast

Just for the record ... it is an LCD (and as said above .. inches NOT feet)

:-)

STill a very nice TV .... especially FOR FREE !!

Other info:
Sony is no longer in the Plasma business but is thinking of maybe getting back in.

But man ... if it was 46 feet .... WOW .... you would have some hard time getting that bad boy in the door.

Cheers
