Industry "fight" is something that has become almost part of us, every now and then fans of various games engage in arguments and counter-arguments, and it seems the big names in online sales world are not left out.
Amazon and Walmart can fight for eternity over who can offer the best deals on a PS3. In the meantime, myself and every other Sony fan will love every second of it!
The only reason they are giving heavy discounts is due to the lack of demand. Sony will remain in 3rd place for the rest of this gen.
Ok Samurai Jack what happened to your show CANCELLED no one watched it. Ps3 is going to sell like crazy around Christmas not that i care i have mine that is all that matters :)
"The only reason they are giving heavy discounts is due to the lack of demand" didnt walmart and amazon also gave the same discount to the xbox360 over black friday? i guess there is a lack of demand for the 360 just as much as for the PS3. using ur logic of course.
Of topic Amazon in an amazing company (UK store) always get things delivered fast usually 2 work days later at the worst of times (minus atm thanks to all this dam snow >.<) don’t know about Wal-Mart I’m from Scotland so its not here tho I think Tesco’s or Asda’s is owned by Wal-Mart
Who cares who'se going to sell more cuz in the end everyone one who bought a ps3 will be happy and so will the retailers for having amazing deals.
I know I am happy with my PS3 right now. Next year will probably be better than any of us can imagine. Btw, who is that chick? PS3 is selling very well worldwide, especially consider the price, but there are still PR/propaganda campaigns in effect to downplay its success, etc.
@scar20 I couldn't read your comment, your pic kept drawing my eyes away
there was no ..move on my walmarts.. i was sad stand alone move controllers are missing in action also they r sold out everywhere here.
well, finally got my second controller. It was the first delivery after the launch...
I had to wait over two hours in line to buy a my new PS3 with the $100 gift card at my local walmart last night. Half of the people there didn't get to buy a PS3, when I bought mine there were 4 left. The Wii line was way bigger though, and they sold out faster.
surprised the Wii still has that kinda energy left.
I went into my local Wal-mart at like 5:30pm last night even though i knew it didnt start til 9, and they sold it to me anyway xD
There was a long line at walmart last night and I asked why and they say because they had a deal on the PS3 bout buy 1 and get 100 gift card.
No way spitFire. I was there when my friend's 4th went down and that was 2 years ago. If he's only on his 3rd, he quite fortunate.
First of all anyone who uses VGC for evidence is desperate to prove a point.Secondly if you check worldwide sales you will see Sony is doing just fine. Everyone keeps pointing at NA sales to act like Sony is in trouble but turn a blind eye to any other country. And finally, I am not sure what these retailers are up to or what they have in mind but if you still can't see a reason to buy a PS3 with it's Bluray player, its accurate, no lag motion control, the number of multimedia programs avaliable, 3D support, killer game line up and free reliable online,Playstation rewards coming soon and solid reliable system design, then I am sorry. Gamers must be getting stupider or something. I don't know what else to say. You used to need some kind of brain matter to play a game but these days I am not sure who it is that plays games anymore. I give up trying to convince anyone that a PS3 is worth a purchase. I am tired of trying to penetrate the concrete that is gamers heads these days
Honestly its all well and good that you support a system. We all have our system of choice. I agree with you that the PS3 is an amazing value package. It offers so much for so little. However so does the 360. Now dont get me wrong here, seeing how this is N4G. I prefer me my PS3. I have over 180 games on the system alone (im a collector) but i also have every other system, such as the 360. They are both great machines. Each has its exclusive titles that are worth playing. Some people prefer Killzone, while others prefer Halo, just as some prefer Forza and others Gran Turismo ect ect. Everyone has a choice. I say if you have the money, buy both. Its worth it in the long run (except maybe XBOXLive) ((Sorry Xbox gamers, i dont see a point in paying just to play online when every other device is completely free)) Now again, i prefer my PS3 any day over the 360. But i just cant get the likes of Alan Wake on PS3, nor Fable, or Banjo Kazooie, or the first Crackdown, or Lost Odyssey (my personal favorite RPG this gen hands down) or Mass Effect....oh wait, PC and Jan next year, Or Viva Pinata. Yes i know, the PS3 has WAY more exclusives that pretty much always deliver (except maybe White Knight Chronicles, or Haze, or Lair) especially Uncharted, Killzone, Modnation, LBP, Demon's Souls, Infamous, and to many more to mention. But all it really comes down to is everyone has there own choice. Yes everyone should be well informed on what each console does, (not by fanboys who dont know what they are talking about or bias salesman) how it suits them, and how good it is for their family. And then make the purchase decision that best fits their wants and needs. Ultimatly its up to the consumer to decide, so stop fighting about it and enjoy your console/game of choice.
Why is it that so many ppl come here and say things like "Ps3 is doomed, or in trouble or going downhill"? These same ppl have been saying these things for over four years now and SONY has does nothing except sell their console with the best exclusives this generation. It is selling more global units than the 360 and will continue to be the better system for the rest of the generation. Get used to it and get over it. Play Kinect or get a dam PS3 already.
Don't care too much its a waste of energy they will always be hating guessing there broke from there 360 so they diss Ps3 to make themselves feel better.
As soon as it doesnt take 10 min to look at friends trophies and the online matches the features of XBL, then we will talk.
u mean pay like 60 dollars to play online n do just all that???
How does it take 10 minutes when they always sittin right there in your face? It takes like 2 seconds for the lil trophy bar to fill up man. You aint gotta exaggerate. In some games though, when you press the PS button it doesn't stop the game process and it starts eatin up resources while you lookin round on the XMB, couple that with being online and you might have to wait a few extra seconds. So it might lag(trophy sync) in the right situation, but most times you're never gonna be in that right situation.
No matter who wins!!! Sony going to sell a lot of consoles
I really want to see Xbox and PS3 head to head with the same F**ing price... "Yes" same F**ing PRICE in the market and also M$ to stop giving free Xbox to people, so we can see what really happen.
its great that they are competing with each other. That only means more PS3s sold and thats great for the Devs and Sony
