A before and after look at how the PS3's value has increased do the the price drop in early July.
this guy needs to go back to school to learn how to make proper graphs and how to plot points and lines.
im not saying ANYTHING relating to the value of the PS3 here just so the fanboys don't attack me but really, that graph is garbage.
yeah the graph does suck... I can design a better graph while half asleep, because I've actually designed a better graph while half asleep. Ah deadlines
Oh thank god I am not an idiot! I was looking at that and I was dumbfounded and all I could muster was "huh" whew k good. lol that was such a sh!tty graph.
While the text reads smart, it totally lacks of any specific information. It amazes me, how much text one can put around no content. The "VALUE" has not been defined or specified. It also does not explain how the "VALUE" is measured. Is that customer perception ? If so, how do you measure that ? Also, he explains BluRay, but ignores the fact that other feature also add value (Card reader, WiFi), which might not be as high, but he concludes BD with an analysis of the current HD market. We all know, going BD was a risk - but one which is planed thru-out the live cycle of a console, which might be up to ten years and put this investment into another relation. That said, the BD in the PS3 cannot be evaluated with the same measures you would use to take a look at the (new) HD market.
Whatever, PS3 sells - even inn vertical markets :)
If thats Offensive ^^^ I'm sorry...
What happends when the clearance is over?, i know the momentum will still be up somewhat reguardless of the end of the Clearance and the hype of new games but will that be enough to compete with all companies having great games this XMAS?.
What if Wii dropped its price and killed MSFT and Soneeeee killing two birds with one stone. lol J/K
Pretty Graphs dur! pretty colors. Yeagh, this is a poorly drawn graph. I have seen 7th graders capable or formulating a better representation of product advancement and decline.
did u do that on paint?
um another note, why is the original xbox higher on the graph then the wii. Wouldn't the value be higher for a game system that developers are actually making games for?
Please. They dropped the price because no one was buying them.
Great piece of hardward and yes is costs a bunch to make.
Not our problem.
Now how about some games?
Having to have taken Statistics and Probablity in my first semester of University I can only say...It looks more like a cartoon of some sort than a graph. Honestly, was this done by a 6th grader? I see he's trying to emulate a Keyeneisan (sp) balance graph, I'm not an economics major but still, this has no merit.
Edit: In the News Headline it mentions the value increased, technically, the great big ugly brown ball that is the PS3 should also be sliding to the right, all that changed in that graph is the ratio of price/value equaling 1,price ceteris parabus.
Boy would I love to meet the useless human being who disagreed.
This contributor is LAME. And he has a DESPICABLE, DISHONEST character.
The original headline of this article is "Price Adjustments to New Information: Sony PS3." The contributor had originally submitted the article using the original headline... until the article had been partially approved and was just about the get approved. Then he pulled a bait and switch. He changed the title of the article to "PS3 Value Increases After Price Drop" for no good reason.
I happen to have a degree in Economics. Now the title is completely WRONG. The article itself says NOTHING about "PS3 Value Increases After Price Drop". By changing the title of the article at the last second, the contributor also changed the title into the meaning.
The contributer CHEATED to get a misleading title approved.
No one cares what you say thats why 16 people have you on ignore! I changed the title before the 4th approval even went on there. Would have done it earlier but i was multitasking and stepped away from my computer. If you have a degree in economics shouldn't you have a good job and be somewhere else instead of harassing all the contributors on the site? I mean what are you the N4G police or something. Get a life please. And your comment just shows how insecure you are to list on here that you have a degree in economics! Lol NO one cares. Also it depends on how you look at it. If a consumer goes to a store and they see a product at $600 and they see everything they get for $600 then the price drops and they get the same things for less money then they get a better value. So going around attacking people that don't have a one track mind like you makes you look silly. Get an imagination please. Learn how to see things from more then one angle.
PS. Don't bother replying to me because i have ignored you due to the fact that all you do is write nonsense and harass people .Reading the bull that you spit out clearly shows your on a level way below me and i don't want to subject myself to your stupidity anymore.
Have a nice day! lol
Also why is your CRank at 4? Lol I won't even tell you why because it speaks for itself!
"value has increased do the the price drop in early July"
The other mistake (not in this article, but on this site in general) that REALLY gets under my skin is "they should of done this"....it's "should HAVE" or even "should've"...not "of".
Ok, I feel better now. :)
No jumping, my friend. More just the result of a long, hard day at work for me. All's good.
Lmao rofl! Who needs english when typing about videogames? lol I was going to be an English major and yeah people's grammar on this site gets to me.
mutitasking and in a hurry when i submitted this and your right "do the the" should be "due to the" but its a minor mistake. No need to jump on me. Lol.
Sad part is i was in English honors when i was in High School but that was years ago. LOL.
"PS3 Value Increases After Price Drop"?
Look at the graph: PS3 moves vertically downward along the Price-Axis. It does not move horizontally along the Value-Axis. Therefore, PS3's value does NOT change. It stays constant.
This is simple graph, a basic analysis. Yet drtysouf21 couldn't even comprehend it. That tells us something about his intelligence, doesn't it?
Misinterpreting the graph and story and then using a misleading title that has a meaning completely different from the original headline and story is another.
@ "Get an imagination please. Learn how to see things from more then one angle."
Somebody pinch me!!!!!
The value of a product goes up when you decrease it's price??? I'm blewn away!!!
It's the person who submitted this story who misinterpreted the graph, incorrectly claims the value increases, and uses a wrong title whose meaning does not fit the graph or the actual story itself.
According to the graph, PS3's "Value" stays exactly the same as it were on the X-axis. The PS3 dot has moved down (= price decreased), not the the right (= value increased).
