John Yamamoto, president and CEO of Square Enix's European and North American subsidiaries, has warned that gamers may still think PS3 is too expensive despite the recently announced price cut.
Even though sony has admitted the PS3 is not worth 600 but rather 499 at the most, I don't care. Even though I paid 600 which I could buy a better version for the same price now, I don't care. Yes, even though I have not been able to play more than 2 OK games on my system since launch and it has been just collecting dust until the price dropped. (maybe sony screwed me?) No, I will be happy about the fact that now some games are finnally coming out people can go buy the system for 100 dollars cheaper cause, I'm a sony fan. Yea, we are like that. Even though the xbox still is as valuable as 2 years ago and the PS3 is dropping price already, due to being a useless machine so far with no demand, I'm going to act like it is a good thing for sony they had to drop their price, yea.
freaken noobs, this is already been posted, and read the interview, why stirr things up more?
because xbox e3 showing sucked ass.....you gotta stir up some kinda anti ps3 news
dont worry .
SE is with SONY.
with the price cut ps3 is already selling like crazy everywhere.
Guys I was at my EB tonight before the show, to pre-order
some games. The manager said they sold 32 PS3's in the last 48hrs,
essentially there stock! People were asking to but there names down for
when there re-stocked.
I honestly didn't think $100 could make such a difference!
another idiot like the one from konami.
lol...uhm duh'.... just like Sony doesn't know this themselves...
OLD and cOLD
499 is so not too much.
wtf is that in your picture?
yea...I want to ask that for awhile too..
first i thought it was a dogs ear now im having other thoughts
well .. it's definitely not me ;-)
looking horrid eh?
ok. but first you have to say "please" ;-)
and btw. give me a bubble
p.s. it's not photoshopped or anything.
that avy is creepin me the hell out. WTF IS IT?!
ok...tell me this...any editing for that picture? or its real.....
....I think it knows Im looking at it....
Xbox 360 Elite $479 | Playstation 3 $499
HDDVD Add-On $199 | built-in
Wi-Fi Adapter $99 | built-in
Xbox Live $50/year | Free
TOTAL: $830 | $500
Total Savings for PS3 owners $330
Conclusion: PS3 is not over-priced people just do not know what it is capable of.
Yup you'll be amazed with some ppl just failed at simple arithmetic, at least at the time, i writing this there are 2 ppl failed at math even provided with clear example.
comone GO SONY!, now you gott the 360 back on the ground, youst take your Hell Gast army and crush them, they dont have the overhyped halo 3 any more couse i think nearly all of the "true" h3 fanboys are now like WTF was that? it was nice ,, but nott so nice that i hoped 4,, so comone now sony, show uss what we all have know all the time, show uss that you guys still are the number 1 game consolle :)
bring on: KZ2, Silent hill 5, Metal gear, Final fantasy, assasins creed, lair, ut3, and aalll the other grait games 4 the ps3.
And i can prommise that halo 3 or was it halo 2 and there Disney movies in HD! is alllllll out :) .... ps3 all the way from now on :D
$500 and $600 dollars is a rediculous price for a games console. Maybe not for hardcore gamers like us on N4G.
But most casual gamers as well as parents view a games console as a toy.
The sweet spot for gaming is $200. Most people bought PS2s at that price, and an even better example of this is the Wii. Wii outsells PS3 and 360.
At those 2 pricepoints Sony will always be in third. And they will always be the most expensive bc they started out too high.
Disagree all you want but monthly sales charts don't lie....and PS2 and Wii constantly come out on top. And as soon as 360 has its first price drop it will also be at this mass market pricepoint.
Now go follow the yellow brick road so you can find the scarecrow, I think he has your brain.
BloodMask, 500 bones is an absolute deal for what you get under the hood and the build quality. Your poo60 is cheaper, but it is also CHEAP.
So cheap in fact that MS had to add 3 yr warranty on the piece of $hit.
The Wii is very affordable we all know, but who wants to play that?
Kids and the guy pictured below.
maybe a little bit too much. 449 or 399 would be very nice
if anything, they should be another $50 this holiday season, provided they can slash even more manufacturing cost. Hopefully matching the XBOX 360 price cut again.
You know, I grow somewhat sick of seeing this fanboyistic ritual go on in every topic of news that can be turned into something to hold against Sony or Microsoft. If you REALLY want to find out if a system is worth your money, take a look at what software it's offering not only now, but later on, and if these are your types of games or there are certain series you're a fan of, then buy THAT console, alright? No one is asking you to buy a Ps3, so why come here and cause chaos? I'm sure you could do something more creditable with your time instead of roaming around here looking to see where you can cause trouble.
thisisgood as the sales increase but if sony want 2 own tha 360 they should reduce that consoles price by another $100 then the ps3 will fly off tha shelves
