PS3Fanboy has a method of getting a PlayStation 3 and 8 Blu-ray movies for only $475.00. Follow the link for the method.
Is a damn good deal. I was chuffed at getting 1BD for free but 8 really is something else. I think the paramount deal would have had something to so with this.
Yes, and as a gamer I find this disturbing. Because sony allowing retailers to promote PS3 as a Blu-ray player like amazon is doing, is not healthy for the Playstation heritage. Playstation used to be ALL about gaming, putting gaming in the center of the experience.
Playstation have had innovativeand new gamedisc storage every generation, though this one is different.
I think this is something that disturbs Phil Harrison and others on Playstation team as well, I bought the PS3 mainly because of blu-ray and I am not alone in having a PS3, Blu-ray movies, but not a single PS3 game. SCARY for Playstation brand future?
to get a great deal.
As a massive 360 fan I'm shocked I did this but at this price the time was right.While its true there are no game sfor the ps3 right now they are on the way and as a fan of high def movies I couldn't pass this up.
Heres what I paid and the deal applied with out joining anything.

Nothing special was needed,I just added the system and the movies ,amazon automatically discounted everything at checkout.
SO FOR 470$ I got 8 BR movies and the system.Now we wait for the games::)
edit: So I get a disagree even though i showed prof of what I paid? I'm just trying to let people know the deal isnt just for prime members. Some of you people have a lot of growing up to do. Anyway,I guess as a memeber of the "I own all three club", I better get used to asshats gettting pissed because i'm not close minded.
as far as marketing goes, first they copied HD DVD with their 5 free movies promo, now they copy them with the 3 free movie deals through certain stores (i.e. amazon) while still having the 5 free movies deal
I don't think that the paramount deal helped, but it's nice to see to a similar deal as to what HD-DVD is doing.
Furthermore, I don't agree with what was said about sony not wanting to market this as a Blu-Ray player. From the very start Sony suggested this was going to be a "single device for your living room." The only way they can, and should be able to justify selling a console for that much is with its BR capabilities. So, I'm don't agree with the statement that sony is bothered by it being marketed as a BR player. A Blu-Ray player for $475.00 (within the context of this conversation)is a much better sounding deal than a game console for the same.
packing the PS3 with free blu rays. It not only makes the PS3 cheaper, but it pushes Blu ray. It knocks out two birds with 1 stone. I would expect this from PS3 during the Holidays becuase they could be desperate to keep up with XBOX 360 sales.
Gimme Warhawk over 8 movies.
That wouldn't be art, would it?
If you look you will see the HD-DVD add-on for the 360 is in 5th or 6th spot and also has the 8 movie deal.
This is not proof of market trends...this is only proof of Amazon tryig to move units by doing large movie bundles. My guess is their HD movie library is not moving as fast as they want so they are creating these deals to move inventory.
buy a system to watch movies on?
I use my PS3 to watch movies and oh boy does it look good
hate on a good deal?? do you know that bluray movies look awesome on an hdtv?? why would you come and hate like 80% of people on this site??
are you really that bitter..? it's and extra 3 blu ray movies and a $25 discount, what's wrong with that again?? for $15 more they can download warhawk when they get it from amazon
Sony isn't trying to just make a game console. They are trying to push a whole new format for movies as well. If it takes off, its really not a bad idea. If we are going back to the old "ps3 doesn't need Blu-Ray" argument, thats a whole other can of worms that I am steering clear of.
I'm thinking about it...
But Still expect Sony to give free stuff during the Holidays, free games or blu rays unless they're gonna cut the price. I just think PS3 will have trouble keeping up with XBOX 360 sales. Mainly because of Halo 3 and the consoles cheaper price.
1 ps3 + 8 AAA titles for $575, anyone?
how about this one: 1 ps3 + 4 AAA titles for $500
if you want any 8 of those movies, and there are some good titles in there. 8 blu-ray movies cost over $200.
Effectively, the PS3 costs less than $300 in this deal (if you want any 8 blu-ray titles from the selection.)
if you're smart you can get all these movies, get the good ones and if you sell them on ebay for like a $10 profit each you'll make $80 making the ps3 $395, not a bad deal if you ask me
the last time I sold something on eBay, it took me over two hours just to list, sell, answer emails, transfer payment, package, drive to the post office, and deliver about 3-4 items. That's $30-$40 profit if you sell those Blu-ray movies. All those troubles took me more than two hours.
If you're smart, you'd be able to earn way more than that in 2 hours.
Great deal for those who haven't got one yet.
That's a good deal.
I like to play games on the console I purchase for GAMES.
I'll watch movies on a movie player..........or in the theatre or on tv
Plus there's the wear and tear factor on the consoles disc drive,
when watching movies.
to each his own tomfool. PS3 owners like to play games, watch Blu-Ray movies, and surf the internet for free, while you....
...well I guess you like to troll PS3 news while you "watch" your Box's tracking # on the way to Texas. 8|
But why pay for a games console and a dedicated blu-ray player when you can have them both in one for way less money?
I don't see how giving your console more functionality is a bad thing. I know plenty of people who bought the ps3 *JUST* for the blu ray player, Sony hoped and planned on consumers viewing it as both a console and a player. It is a great deal, regardless of how you look at it.
It's sad to see your so butt hurt still,because your console and
favorite football game(which you named yourself after),runs at a
piss-poor 30 fps on your movie player.
How's that petition/boycott against EA coming along?
Godamn you're a loser.
I've never had a problem with my console.
Get off the drugs,or get on them,I don't know,but seek help dude.
shot PS3 in Amazon video games bestseller to #1
damn that's a crazy good deal!
yea i just did a soft checkout and got a total of $468, that was with my 2 day shipping and 3 movies, WOW, too bad i already have a system.
Im not a big sony fan but for this I may pick it up.... and people saying get a movie player... a bluray player by itself is at least $400 so why not just spend the extra 100 and get a game system aswell?
and sony may help blu-ray win I mean look what the ps2 did for the dvd market.... ps2 was my first dvd player and then I got a stand alone player when they got cheaper... same thing ps3 is doing for the blu-ray market....
im not really into movies but i know a good deal when i see one.
besides the lack of games and the promise of future aaa titles, that have yet materialized, this is a damn good deal.
fanboy of any type of not...
sony is really pushing it's best bd player..
yeah and what this guy said in the forum:
"this has nothing to do with buying a ps3, amazon is having a buy 2 get free deal on blu ray and hd dvd. The only catch is that the titles are completely random. more info here
