80GB Bundle PS3 $549 ... $110 off the normal price.
Effective Sept 28th...
with disappointing HALO 3 MS has nothing left to combat ps3.
This is the right time for SONY to pin nail in x360's coffin.
eu and japan gone...NA is left but would be gone for sure
is it me or can anyone else imagine nasim to be the biggest f*cking loser just try to imagine a nerdy ass motherfu*ka typing fast and laughing while stuffing his face with chips thinking they are so cool
hahaha funny sh!t man. I see it. So thats what he looks like.
please stop, u r making ppl hate the PS3
Hate is spreading like a plague on n4g because of guys like you.
nasim is an X360 fanboy. Just like that "Sony Protecton/Defense Force/Group whatever" site is owned by Wii360.
he has one bubble...i have too open his comments for a laugh...no some people dont buy into sonys brand loyalty BS like many early adapters who are sitting on every sony game like it is a piece of technology from god himself. I will say that if sony would of kept focused on just games they would not be where they are with the hate and 3rd place showing right now. Imagine a 400 dollar ps3 with no blu-ray and you see sony in 1st place this holiday season.
Why are you guys even bothered with what this turd is writing. I'm not cuz i dont see him hahahaha
oh come on, Snukadaman. We're not all like that. I'd say majority are not. We just bought PS3 because we know that it will have the games that we have grown to love over the years, FF, MGS, ICO, R&C. I personally think PS3 has many games. Considering that it hasn't even been a year. Not to mention Europe, where I live. It's been a few months since it came out. It just needs some time.
And, maybe a PS3 without BluRay would be the 1st this holiday season, but where would it be 3-4 years from now then? Don't be shortsighted. I know that if PS3 came out without BD, I'd be very dissapionted. It's always been about more capacity each gen. It enables better games. Like DVD technology enabled GTA to happen.
it's just a currency realignment.
Would bring the price to $599 not $549....maybe it is a precursor to a US drop? (though the weak US dollar is hurting Sony's ability to drop in the US)
BTW I'm not the one who 'disagreed' with you.
but you can also find them on sale for $549 in some places in the states.
My local store has the 80gig/Motorstorm bundle for $599, but individual stores and /or regions can temporarily sell them for less as loss leaders.
Doesn't matter much though, $549 is still $100 more than a 360 Elite, and $200 more than a 360 Premium.
You'll notice this add is for an anniversary sale, and they also have a 360 Premium/Forza 2 bundle at a reduced price.
the US dollar just matched the Canadian dollar for the first time since 1976 on friday. Canada always had more expensive prices on electronics, it's not even close. Plus they get taxed way more. My point is the Canadians will pay a lower price for the PS3, but still more than us here in the US
sony should do what they are supposed to do with the playstation...keep the focus on games....BD could of been brought out like the hd-dvd add on like microsoft did, which in turn lowers the price of the ps3 and it then has a bigger install base. as we speak no game takes advantage of bd. you honestly think the ps3's 10 year plan will honestly be implemented? seriously..sony is stupid if they are not working on a ps4. but they gambled on blu-ray so now we are all stuck with it.
549 is currently the $CAD 60GB price. If this is actually true, that model should enter the $400s CAD.
"Wal-Mart Anniversary Celebration 9/28"
"$549.83 (Save $110)"
By the looks of it, it's just a sale
Great now who lives is Canada?
good for the canadians that want to buy a ps3.
It's Simple they can't or the people on mass arn't wanting to buy!
Sony have big problems. No one wants there over priced blue ray player
oh and yes it does play games.
dont talk 5h1t the blu rayt player is excellent and is not over priced
i like the of picture the red Canadian PS3 ... thats soo NEUTRAL it doesnt do anything lol
Our soldiers are dying every day in Afghanistan d!ckhead. Your're going to start flaming countires now? I realize you were just trying to be funny but not the time or place.
Edit: Oh and by the way McLovin', Seth Rogen is Canadian.
might buy one now
whatever that means?.... but anyway, the PS3 price drops now it isnt just a sell, I believe it's a price cut.... Canada rules!
Should this be in the 360 section?
It COULD be listed in the 360 section since the sale also includes:
XBOX360 Bundle (Limit 1 per customer)
NHL2K8 + Forza2 Game Bundle (Well its in the pic)
$347.63 (Save $50)
But given the way the story for N4G was specifically pointing out the PS3 sale it should not have been posted in the 360 section.
This won't last very long. It's a damn sale. Do not claim they're going to reduce the price.
Sony is desperate to move a few extra consoles this month because of Halo 3!!!!!
Well I'll tell you from now, if you still don't have games then its still not gonna really pull people in. The 60gb has been at $549.99 for a while and is readily available at pretty much everywhere that sells the ps3. Until the games come out, they're not gonna sell. In Canada, depending on which province as it varies, you're looking at at least 10% you're paying in taxes(With the exception of Alberta). So the avg person is not going to pay over $600 for a gaming system when the ps2 is right beside it for $129.
The stores in my town are all out of 60GB...
It's nice living in Oregon. No sales tax, and the State tax I pay I get a nice chunk back at the end of the year. Also nice getting a kicker check.
Time to get rid of $hit before it cloggs up the pipelines. Clearance sale i believe.
Just out of curiosity, where was nasim when the Halo 3 review was up? I know! He probably ran to the store and secretly bought an Xbox 360 just to play the game!
372.99 is the perfect price for PS3
because its 399.99 after tax, out the door
I think Sony should reconsider the whole strategy of selling PS3...maybe match 360s price, take the losses from the console but at least gain fan base...also why not encouraging people to stop buying the PS2 and instead buy the PS3, it's like the PS3 is also fighting against the PS2 (sigh...) or maybe a program to trade in PS2s+some money for a PS3...but one thing is for sure, SONY needs to suit the price of casual gamers since it seems that only hardcore gamers are the only ones buying PS3s right now, that is why XBox and Wii are doing great...they appeal to the casual gamers for sure...
