It’s a well know fact that the PS3′s price has been discounted at retailers ranging from Amazon to high-street retailers. Now, the Xbox 360 has received a price deduction fairly close to the recent PS3 price drop frenzy.
Great opportunity , for Xbox 360 owners to Pick Up a PS3 & for PS3 Owners to Get A Xbox 360. Take Advantage of this offer. @ HelghastDrake --- You just had to say it didn't you. Pfft.
Walmart just had the 4GB's for $150. Grabbed one to replace my old 360. Plus you can use the original HDD's in the slims if you're up to it.
which walmart did u go to? cuz i only see it as 199.00
Wait, you can use the original model hd's in the slims? I don't get it..
@nobias u can. but u gotta open up the HDD cover and take the actual HDD out of that dam thing and connect it to a Xbox slim. but its not really stable. depending on how ur doing it.
Those PS3 stingy gamer deals turned out to be fake. Just looking for hits.
It was a sale that went unadvertised in their flyers until this Wednesday, so I'm not sure if it's still on. Plus I'm Canadian. http://forums.redflagdeals.... @NoBias Yeah you can just pull the HDD out of the old models and stick it in the slims. It's really easy actually. You can also spend $5 and get one of the MS HDD casings for the slims and stick your HDD in those too, then slide it into the slim.
But I think I'm more than happy with my 320GB PS3 and a Wii. Got everything I need to play.
The PS3 deals in the UK were all 100% legit. Tesco Amazon & HMV all discounted the PS3 here.
i was in hmv today and they werent discounted at all, they were at the normal prices. bogus crap news.
Its the first point of this generation where PS3 can be had at a pricepoint rivalling that of xbox 360 in the u.k. Ever since it has launched PS3 has been considerably more expensive here in the uk, and has been hampered at retail against microsoft's machine. We can see better now the price gap has closed how well PS3 will perform at retail against 360 on an equal price footing.
Sounds like a plan I don't really want an Xbox but I do need one
Owning both systems is a must for hardcore gamers
Not a must, but I'm proud to own both. Multi console owners FTW, content exclusivity doesn't gripe us.
Stop trying to convince yourself that your opinion on what a hardcore gamer is is the best one for everyone. You know what sounds like a more reasonable opinion on what a true hardcore gamer is?: Its not the time spent gaming or the amount of consoles you own but your passion for gaming. You're basically saying a guy is more of a man than another for having a bigger dick.
That's right. Just because I have a bigger dong than everyone else in the world doesn't make me more of a man. hahahaha j/k ;)
yea but most of the gamers in America only owns a Xbox360. so if there is a good offer. gamers should be encouraged to buy a PS3. gamers in Japan should go buy a Xbox360. Flood Kinect with cute anime characters and I guarantee the Xbox360 will be a major success. uh... Microsoft disagrees with me. no wonder Xbox360 is dead in Japan. =( Halo/Gears strategy doesnt work there does it?
I agree that you have to own both. You can play the best from both worlds. That's a win each and every way you try to cut it. It's great to never feel like you're getting the shaft because of something going exclusive to a given console :)
I think to be hardcore you must own a gaming PC as well as a console. The fact that you would pay a lot to max out current generation games sounds pretty "hardcore" to me.
SpaceSquirrel is a truth speaker, I would HATE to have missed out on Dead Rising or Gears of War, same goes for Uncharted 2 and MGS4. Oh and Mario Galaxy, Monster Hunter Tri and Twilight Princess too while we're on the subject. edit: added quite a few bubbles to above posts, some people do speak sense around here after all.
why is it a must though?I have all 3 consoles but i never play the 360. Got it for gears at the start but once i finished both of them I went back to ps3, got kinect as a present but it is rubbish. Why does that make me more hardcore than someone who just has one console?
Owning 3 consoles doesn't make you hardcore, being hardcore makes you own 3 consoles. Either that or it's a correlation/causation thing.
that is my only reason to stay with one system
Good luck Why would you want a lesser worth system?...oh wait...Morons are in majority. Since Day 1 Just had to pull that off my chest. True as it is.
You have to know this, 5% of population have 130 or more in IQ...so like, what, 95% is left over? I am a master of math now, right? Corrected my spelling error - I was a bit drunk.
I don't understand your post.
I mean, why use a smarter system and get a good price for it? While the most of the population use a inferior product? Has this happened before? Betamax vs VHS is comming to mind.
If you dont understand why a PS3 is better than a Xbox360 now, I guess Xbox720 will be better...because majority prevails. Cannot you understand that concept, good luck! My disagrees in my OP starst to count for my point. Prove me wrong - Buddies. =)
Awww how cute you brought out the old betamax argument.... lulz!!!
Look at yourself though. You're fighting about which CONSOLE is better. Do you know the point of gaming on a console? It's for mainstream people to play games without any technical knowledge and less money. That's the point of consoles, and you kids sit on this site and try and compare two gaming consoles that are pretty much identical is different ways.
my bro wants one and i wont give it mine sinc eim playing kz3... lol awesome prices , price cuts at E3 confirmed so ?
Just give him yours and go back to the funnest game ever, counter strike.
People goes with safe cards. I get that. I go with safe cards too. But I like it safe systemwise. Not publicly safe. @responder:You have to use your bubles more wisely or I will track you down. Like you, I am kidding. Fun game this though.
Nope, still don't. Sorry.
He mentioned he was drunk. I sure hope so because none of that made a lick of sense!
I play them fairly the same but I obviously like my PS3 more.
and I have to say the 360 price point should be way lower than it is right now to convince someone like me to buy one. My 60gig ps3 just YLOD after 4 years (happened after playing 3hrs of kz3) but when I think about my purchase and all the games I played that I only could get on the ps3 Im pretty glad on my decision. I played games like UC1/UC2/GoW3/MGS4/R:FOM/KZ2/KZ 3*3hrs... ;(* and I can say if i didnt play those games I wuoldve missed out on a lot of great games. If i think about what if i got a 360 and gears and halo are the ONLY 2 games I would have been playing I wouldve been 1 depressed gamer. And true value of a system lies in the games, not that the ps3 isnt the better value purely on its system features alone anyway..
Kill Zone 3 causes YLOD! Confirmed!
So does GT5, my PS3 got YLOD when I was on GT5! I think that much awesome on one disc is too much of an artistic triumph and the PS3 just dies in shock.
I don't want a 360. Why waste my money on a console that don't have games I like.
You know M$ was not going to go long without dropping the price since Sony has dropped the price on PS3. I don't think the 360 price cut will have as big effect as the PS3s, because there is already a cheaper on the market.
You lost the right to call them M$ when $ony started suing modders, while M$ encourages and enables home brew and modders.
Please mofo you telling me that if you created something from scratch then someone stole the blueprints, you wouldn't have a problem with that. Its one thing to hack your own console, but when you start handing out the blueprint knowing that others will use this for profit. M$ knew the 360 had problems but they released it to the masses despite knowing this. I call that greed. Sony on the other released a console that cost 839 dollars to make but sold it for $599. You lose the right to talk me. Kick Rocks little guy.
@clarence yes, but thanks to some law suit, MS have to repair them for free for 3 years (they are paying for their greed, karma). Although i don't remember Sony fix stuff for free back in Ps2 days. You are quite nieve clarence, if you think sony only want to make customers happy at their own expanse. Would u think Ps3 sell at $839? I mean people aren't even buying it at $599 and Ken Kutaragi want people to get a second job, especially during the world financial crisis, just to get a ps3? Sony have to sell it at a lost for business reasons like promoting a cheaper blueray, few more people can afford it, and also they believe they can make it back w/ games. And for the record, xbox is also selling at a lost right? They not doing it for you. They are both in this for business not charity. Remember the saying, it is business, not thing personnel? It is quite funny how many of you actually think any of these corporate actually care about u. And yes, pirating is bad. It is consider stealing no matter how u put it.
baodeus Your right but so is Clarence in a way, company's do care to a point but there main objective is to make money every company is that way, it's some don't care how they do it. Companies have an obligation to provide a service to keep the consumer happy and want to continue using there products, if your sending out trash to your consumers knowing it and knowing that they will just keep buying more if there want to do something then what do they care keep giving them trash. Dont get me wrong allot of company's out there have made huge mistakes Sony included but its those company's that get better by learning from those mistakes make them better.
@B1663r: Modders? You're so nice to them. I would call them scum of the gaming industry.
I own both systems and until this coming year the 360 has ate the ps3 up for exclusive games and getting content first. I guess I should not even say this year because it just started. The ps3 is just ok in my book while I get far more enjoyment out of my 360 sinch launch. Killzone 3 I was hoping for a great game and it really blows. I know bulletstorn can be played on the ps3 but everyone needs to play it because it is by far a better game then killzone ever dreamed of being. Killzone used to be pretty but 3 even ruined that and the story and pacing is shamefull. I'm very dissipointed so far with my ps3 purchase and I have literly bought three of them listening to the hype on n4g. 1 ylod and one I sold then rebought.
It's obvious you don't know qaulity then !
I was thinking about getting a 360, but I think Ill stick with my PS3. besides, the fee to play online turned me off
get the playstation.more bang for ur buck.
Meh, I don't wanna pay for simple online with no interesting offers like PS+. Just before it happens: Don't fucking thumb me down just because I'm saying this! Who would pay just to go online!(My opinion)
no fanboy here,but in all honesty thier just really isnt a reason to get another xbox.i mean seriously can you honestly be excited to even have an xbox360 this year?yes they have gears and forza,but lets be honest here,forza isnt my kind of game period.i want something diffrent from ms,and not kinect related,until then thiers no reason to even mention getting an xbox.OH AND BEFORE YOU THROW MULTIPLATFORMS IN MY FACE KEEP IN MIND I ALREADY HAVE A PS3 FOR THAT SO IM GOOD!
Xbox Is sooo desperate to keep their gamers and adding new ones. Too bad no profit for the x last year and this so far.
Saving up for NGP and the all year ps3 exclusives that i dont have time to buy a 360.
