Those bundles were amazing. I am not surprised they are sold out everywhere.

Sarcasm3012d ago

The Batman bundle is pure genius. If I didn't already have 3 out of 4 of those things, that would be the bundle that would rake me into a purchase.

"Wait for ffxiii. "

It's only two weeks away for the Japanese market. Sony is going to have a banging holiday this year.

Shotgun_Roamer3012d ago

good for sony, they've really put a lot of work in re-inventing the ps3 for consumers and their units sold in the past months has reflected that effort. Keep it up :D

sikbeta3012d ago

Well those Bundles are just WOW... AWESOME indeed

ABizzel13012d ago

Well time to play the numbers game.

Any bidders on what each console sold.

dopeboimagic923012d ago

Yeah, especially since it's still exclusive to PS3 in Japan.

is this a joke?? is this news?? or is this more hit leeching trash wrote especially for blogs4fanboys?? my monies on the last choice.

i love my ps3 as much as any sony-fanturd on this site, just like i love my 360 as any xbox-faturd on this site. but this is just ridiculous, not news and if the moderators actually did anything, this crap should be deleted instantly...lol

well done, another all-time low for this increasingly rubbisg site.

Sev3012d ago

@ blogzz4fanboyzz

Just shut up.

Jaces3012d ago

I was at Best Buy this morning trying to get my hands on L4D2 for $35, which thankfully I did, and noticed that almost everyone I laid eyes on had that PS3 bundle.

All I could do was chuckle, good to see the PS3 get some real attention.

ultimolu3012d ago

Lol, I checked Amazon and it said unavailable. That's freaking awesome. Sony's taking names and kicking ass.

Genesis53012d ago

Yep it looks like the planets are aligning and the PS2 owners are starting to make the jump to this generation.

DaTruth3012d ago

Video games and consoles selling! How could that not be news for gamers!

I don't see why news for gamers shouldn't tell us news about video game consoles and games deals!

They actually tell us every time Toys R us and Best Buy have deals, or any store for that matter.

DaTruth3012d ago

If 360 was doing better, MS would already have a press conference claiming they won Black Friday!

HolyOrangeCows3012d ago

I spent $400 on a phat a year ago and it didn't come with games :/

Naucious3011d ago

i already have 3 of the 4 in the bundle and it still didnt prevent me from getting it lol funny thing was that wasnt my intention @ walmart to get just so happens a dude and his girl had tickets for 3 and asked me out of the blue if i wanted one ticket..... and the rest is history lol

JonnyBigBoss3012d ago

I almost wish I waited. That Dark Knight, inFamous and Batman: AA bundle is amazing.

Sev3012d ago

Sometimes I think like that, especially because I plunked down $600 on launch day.

However it was worth an extra $300 to have the PS3 since day one. I love it.

ftwrthtx3012d ago

Maybe it's time for us to retire our launch consoles and pick up a new slim

Sev3012d ago

I was thinking the same thing! ;)

Obama3012d ago

I bought my ps3 at launch too and I am glad that I didn't wait. I can still play ps2 games on my ps3 and that matters to me a lot.

TheHater3012d ago (Edited 3012d ago )

$300? Try almost $400 dollars more. We had to pay double the tax because it was twice as expensive and I had to pay someone $50 to keep my spot in line because I had something important to do.

Edit: @Sarcasm
hahahha.... It was actually something important to do with someone :P

Sarcasm3012d ago

"because I had someone important to do. "

LMAO

She couldn't wait, that's understandable.

I like the slims but the PS3 60GB Fatty is whats i'm holding on to for ever. ^^

dopeboimagic923012d ago

Actually, the problems come from heat issues which the originals have a lot of so technically, the slims are more reliable.

Sarcasm3012d ago

That's funny because you can go on any Playstation related forum and (unfortunately) find that people are having problems with the 60gbs the most.

Mr Tretton3012d ago

The slims are reliable...so far.

Parapraxis3012d ago

LOL, the 60GB PS3 is the one with the most HW issues out of any SKU.

dopeboimagic923012d ago

Actually, I can hardly tell my Slim is powered on. My 60 GB still works but the fan runs like crazy in about 30 minutes.

krauler3012d ago

my 60 only stays on for about an hour before I get the flashing red. I NEED a slim. Have to wait for x-mas bonus though

Parapraxis3012d ago

I have to laugh at the people who disagreed with me ^^^
I'm a very pro-Sony guy, and I stay on top of the news, I use the PS forums regularly.

It's a fact that the 60GB model is the one which breaks the most out of the PS3 models. Do a google search and you'll see for yourselves.

That being said, while the 60GB SKU has shown to be most likely to break, all of the PS3 models fall well within industry HW standards, and a PS3 breaking at all is not very common. It's just that when they do break people are very vocal and tend to amass.

DaTruth3012d ago (Edited 3012d ago )

Lets be fair! The 60gig has had the most time to break. Some of us are going on 3 years! Slims from 3 years from now will probably break less than Slims sold now!

Lets wait 3 years and see what the slim is saying then! But the 60gigs are holding the 90nm chip, double the size of the slims chip! And also the EE chip too, which I guess is inactive unless PS2 games are running!

Naucious3011d ago

mines just kept freezing all the time when i go into the xmb but i was in denial that i need to get a new one...... im still in denial even though i got a new one lmao cant beat the 60gb sku

These were some crazy deals. If I did not already own one I would of definitely picked one up.

lordkemp0073012d ago

As a resident of the highlands of Scotland Lordkemp wishes a happy thanksgiving to gamers across the pond.

To those who purchased a new ps3, congratulations, your wisdom knows no bounds.

Lastly congratulations Sony, job well done.

deshon093012d ago
