The new pack includes the 60Gb PS3, two Sixaxis controllers, Resistance: Fall of Man, MotorStorm and new addition Heavenly Sword, which made its debut on the charts this week at number seven.
PS3 should of had these games at launch.
I thought the 60 gig was phasing out. How can they make a starter pack with a SKU that they plan on no longer carrying. Or were they just saying they were phasing it out to scare people into buying right away. If so, that's some sneaky stuff.
The 60GB was only canceled in USA, this is Europe only offer.
Even without a price drop, the PS3's value has once again increased by this new pack.
PS3 is already outselling x360 by huge margins 3:1 in EU. These starter packs would increase the margin further. BTW dont bring up vgcharts FALSE NUMBERS to refute my claim Here is PS3 vs X360 in EU HMV ---UK's biggest retailer (accounts for 40% of UK's totalVDO game sales) http://www.hmv.co.uk/hmvweb... ps3 is at no 7 ..x360 non existent AMAZON UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/... ps3 is at no 13...garbage box x360 is non existent http://www.game.co.uk/ HS is right up there at no 3 http://www.play.com/Games/G... HS right up there at no 3 behind HALo 3
3 different genre .. this will ROCK!!! on Xmas..
now lets see the price! this could very well get alot of people to wabt ps3's.
Good deal, but for that price, they sure look desperate.
cant catch a break , first its a ripoff and too expensive, Now they look desperate??
AMAZING!people complain that the ps3 is expensive which in my opinion is false.but they also complain or have something negative to say even when sony adds value to the product.sony is about 5.5 million units from the X360.all this without much marketing and only being out in europe for 5 months.Not to mention that they have not even hit $399 which is how x360 started.AAA games are starting to poor in.HS,Lair(i like it)and warhawk got it started.2007 is pure gravy the rest of the way. And dont get me started on 2008 .A beast is aproaching gentlemen(and ladies)and there is no way to stop it!!!!!!!
That is $571.00 US dollars......even with games THAT wont help sales that much and that is before tax so your still way over $600 bucks.
That's a pretty good if the price is right.
wow...... fence sitters I envy you lol, your getting quite the deal
And it costs $500.00 or less I will buy my PS3.
I have to play with you ______ on PSN...please don't bring this pack to US...
Europe keeps getting great PS3 deals... No love for America.
not bad,,that would be a good start for ps3 to go off charts as espected,,keep doing great offers such as these in US and many would buy it,,specially if they include assasins creed or NBA instead of those 3..
wow that is a great deal
at a lower price would still be better overall in my opinion, but I have to admit, if I were in the market for a ps3... I'd happily buy this.
you have to be stupid to not take that offer.
From Amazon.com with 8 free Blue-ray dvd's and a $30 discount for opening a visa with them. The 60 gb one and I still have yet to set it up. That thing is heavy too, they made fun of the old xbox. I thought that was the best deal I found it on cheap ass gamer.
Xiphos - Europe keeps getting great PS3 deals... No love for America. yes but they thier ps3's for $599 which is just under £300 and thats the 80gb with a game. so europe is still getting ripped off lefr right centre. we need a bigger price cut
i agree, it doesn't matter what games are coming included i am not paying 425 pounds for a games console.
You guys do realize that the US $ is tanking, right? £424.99??? That's $850USD. And as of today, the Canadian dollar is equal to the US dollar. I'm sorry but $850 is way too high. Pass.
yeah no kidding man almost $1000.00 for 2 last gen controllers,3 crap games and a paperweight?? i just puked
424.99 euros isn't 850USD, its 598.633USD .It's not as high as you think.And when u think about it ur saving urself from buying an extra controller, and three games ... i wish we had that deal, i'dhave a PS3 tommorrow if we did ...
Free Lesson: "£" is the symbol for British POUNDS (GBP). They symbol you're referring to is "€" - Euros. Again: £=GBP, €=Euro. £~$2US €~$1.45US Got it? Good. Pwnd, nub.
Thanks for educating that guy Benz! lol some people i tell ya
Then come back and make an intelligent statement. And to Buttplugalypse's comment. You obviously haven't played any of the games and therefore are making a wonderful fanboy comment and should be kicked in the stones.
Are you stupid? Currency conversion done 30 seconds ago HERE: " http://www.xe.com/ucc/conve... Go ahead and plug in the numbers for yourself... ~~~ 424.99 GBP = 858.655 USD United Kingdom Pounds United States Dollars 1 GBP = 2.02041 USD 1 USD = 0.494948 GBP 424.99 GBP = 609.307 EUR United Kingdom Pounds Euro 1 GBP = 1.43370 EUR 1 EUR = 0.697497 GBP ~~~ Christ some people are stupid. Do you morons even think before you type?
you just kicked yourself in the stones by letting your fingers touch your keyboard. please read the article before posting so we can avoid all this next time Insert my "stones" in your mouth
How much is that in €??
Somewhere around 575... I think the Euro is around $1.50US right now.
it is $571.99 BEFORE tax
Huh? Somehow you're missing out on about $286.67... Honestly - it's not that hard to use a currency conversion calculator. Good 'skill' to have, actually - you should try it sometime... might come in handy in the future. ~~~ 424.99 GBP = 858.655 USD United Kingdom Pounds United States Dollars 1 GBP = 2.02041 USD 1 USD = 0.494948 GBP 424.99 GBP = 609.307 EUR United Kingdom Pounds Euro 1 GBP = 1.43370 EUR 1 EUR = 0.697497 GBP
Why are they packing in Heavenly Sword so soon? Game is barely out.
please PLEASE ! buy our console ! oh i know i got another deal ..... BUY A PS3 AND GET A WII AND AN XBOX 360 FREE ! ....its worth a try.
included Rainbow Six: Vegas & Graw2 for that hefty pricetag
Hot damn. I'll buy it when if a and when it comes to finland. We currently have the normal Starter Pack here.
Not too bad... But I'd definitely wait when they finally release the sixaxis pad w/ rumble and put it on a bundle deal for the GranTurismo 5 ( Prologue or the 'real' GranTurismo 5 ) that would be tops!... they might even make a good deal for the 'newly' developed force-feedback steering wheel with a GranTurismo game, who knows... Please Sony...
Awww, man, and I was just about to purchase the regular starter pack!!! Yeah, but only problem it is exclusive for HMV(atleast for now) and there is no telling when it will come to Latvia... but still I hate when they mess with my mind like this...ok maybe not... :D
wheres microsoft's bang fo they buck
how is 850.00 USD a good deal?? please explain
Is that the Exchange rate? for this Bundle? Someone stated $550 or something like that, I was about to say, bring it here in the states and I'll buy one, much earlier then I thought.
Yes, that is. See my previous comments 16.6 and 17.3, above. It's actually $858.66.
and I used Euros not pounds.........ass wipe
