To many peoples surprise Ireland was never meant to get this deal but its now in full effect.This means all EU country's are in on the sony ps3 deal.
don't approve this until the link gets fixed.
all the way.
I snooped a bit through the page and believe i found the right link, hence i added it as alternative source. And yes, the spelling is a PAIN.
I mean how can you manage to get BOTH s cases wrong, its "people's" and "countries"
not peoples and country's *groan*
Good for them.:)
I live in England and there are ps3 deals like this all over, however how many freebies you may get the cost is still £425 which at todays exchange rate is equivalent to $800!!! yes thats right!! it is not a typo, would anyone in their right mind pay $800 for a dvd player that can play a few games? i know i wouldnt and i havent, instead i investet £180 or $340 on a used xbox 360 premium with a years warranty and everynight i chainshaw many a men in half online on gears of war, ahhhh sheer bliss.......
The reason for the PS3's cost...
2. Free Online
3. Cell Processor(fargin beast!!)
4. RSX Graphics Card
5. Auto Loader Disk Tray(lol, not affecting the price, but its better than a disk tray =D)
6. SIXAXIS Motion Tilt
7. Full Bluetooth Compatability6
8. Able to play any and EVERY PS1 and PS2 title
9. Upscales DVD movies
10. Smooths out the edges on PS1 and PS2 games, really makes a difference o.O
11. Built In Web Browser
12. A drive for literally any memory card from camera memory cards to mini SD
13. You can print pictures
14. You can have Giselle Bundchen or something like taht (she played in taxi, acted horrible, but damn hot) as a background!!!!
15. 4 USB Ports
16. Less games, but higher quality of games =)
i cant think of that many reasons to get a 360..... prove me wrong, can you?
The starter pack has just landed in Oz. RfoM, Motorstorm and extra controller and most places have drop about $50 too.
Good deal since everyone one gets Resistance and MS anyway.
yea here in UK in 1 of the stores I saw a deal for buy a PS3 and a choice of any 3 games + 2 sixaxis all for £425...thats a crazy deal
It was Virgin megastore in London for these who live here lol
people say this £425 with 2 extra controllers deal is such a good deal. so my point is if its such a good deal why wasnt it the same deal offered to the americans and other places where sony gave them a price cut.
Because each SCE is independant and can take their own decisions.
Hence why SCEA chose the price drop, and SCEE a bundle. When you think about it, 2 games and a controller are about 170€. So that'sreally a great deal.
What if it is two games that you JUST DON'T WANT???
You see, many people don't care a rat's ass about Motorstorm and Resistance (like me).
enable everyone in Ireland to having a fun and exciting time through the Christmas holidays by purchasing the PS3 and taking advantage of all/some/one of the kick ass games coming out like:
Hot Shots 5,
Ratchet & Clank,
Unreal Tournament 3,
Time Crisis 4 with Guncon,
Gran Tourismo HD,
and then after Christmas(No more than one or two months after)theres:
Metal Gear Solid 4.
AND ofcourse MORE like..... GTA IV
is going around disagreeing with everyone
EDI: ha ha very funny
I live in Ireland and just got my Ps3 bundle yesterday.Ps3 60gb, Motorstorm + Genji, Extra Sixaxis, and casino royale and Black Hawk Down on Blu-Ray for 630 euro (Thats the same price as the starter pack) and an HDMI Cable and Resistance and Transformers :)
What you had so say was fairly reasonable until you said better quality games, ps3 has no games so how can they be better quality??????
i dont know about you but i buy games consoles to play games and apart from heavenly sword, i aint seen anything thats coming out on ps3 that makes me think yeah thats cool, they are all this part 3 and that part 4, no innovation, nothing new just remakes, hell the best game out is a remake of a xbox classic,so like i said its a 800 dollar dvd player
No innovation on PS3? What world are you living in? All I've heard from the 360 camp is Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect over and over and over again. FPS and RPG, the 360 is the one missing innovation.
If you want proof of innovation just look at what Sony is backing: LBP, Lair, HS, Haze etc which are all new games (i.e innovative games), whereas MS is pushing Halo 3.
Ummm... looks like Timmy hasn't done his homework...
Apart from Little big planet, none of the above are showing innovation, haze = first person shooter(only a timed exclusive too), heavenly sword looks like god of war only in drag, whats the innovation in Lair, the dragon??? replace it with a plane then how innovative will it look then? whats the etc? cant you think of anymore games coming out? think before you speak my compadre and one final note, how many games can you think of that looks like mass effect, yeah its an rpg but its a whole new take on the rpg genre
