Wazoo, a poster at neogaf.com is reporting that a 40gb Ps3 with Spiderman 3 will be announced next week, the bundle will cost 399€. Along with the 60GB PS3 (w/ PES2008) at 499€.
This should really help sales alot. Getting the price down as fast as possible is the best thing sony can do.
Yes, if this is true then I will certainly be picking one up. otherwise it's still too much at €600
? According some guys at retail in France, the packs will be more or less announced next week ?
DID YOU READ IT??
...........never trust a source who doesnt even make sense.............
i was thinking the whole spiderman 3 thing at first since it hasnt been released yet, but then again they did release the ballad of ricky bobby early with the ps3 NA launch.
How much does it sell for now? thats really good though.
When you see a gamestop employee carrying a 40 Gig PS3 into the back room...you start to wonder.
It had something packed with it...I just didn't see.
EDIT: Yeah...I saw the 40Gig thing on the side.
you saw him with a 40 gig??
how did you know if was a 40gb model
you didnt see crap because they dont have them. and trust me i used to work for them and my friends that work there keep me up to date with this stuff.
Roughly translates to around £280, but knowing Sony, they'll probably make it £299
for the people in france but i hope the new sku is coming for all the world.
I think it's great Sony is finally bundling a game with the console... Spiderman 3 instead of a movie... it's time people know that the PS3 is not a blu-ray player but a game console.
The "Blu-Ray" jibe was justified when the machine cost $600 as standard. IF this rumour becomes true, then it won't be justified as a movie player but a games console - that would cost the same as the Xbox 360 Elite.
listen to your bias. so what if it comes with a blu ray movie. its called good buisness since spiderman 3 is so popular. so shut the heck up and go play some halo,or wait did your 360 do this
Doesn't the Elite retail for US$450?
wow! why so much hostility.... I honesly though this bundle was packed with Spiderman 3 the GAME.. not the MOVIE!...
And by the way... I will be getting a PS3 if the price is right and the games are worth the purchase. Nothing wrong with that. Because of the games... unlike Sony fanboys that woudlnt buy an xbox 360.. though there are plenty of games on the xbox 360 to make it worth it's price tag.
ps3 IS a game console with nextgen format for maximum video and audio quality in games and it can be used as a videoplayer and other multimedia applications.
When the $399 40 GB ps3 is announced next week with the Spiderman 3 bluray movie pack in...Bladestar along with millions of other people will go out and buy a ps3.
my inside source at gamestop has confirmed the 40gb version, they cant say anything else now, but after the DM leaves ill post everything they tell me
i bet every xbot is going to go out and buy a ps3 when the price goes down but of course there never going to admit that they have baught the console.
PS3 is already taking a pounding right now and if that''s true then I'm thinking PS3 is planning to go out of business. I'm selling my PS3 I'll pick one up when Final Fantasy XIII comes out and it's not on 360.
If those rumors are false, Sony needs to say something and confirm exclusive deals or something but those rumors are hurting them. I would imagine many other people are hesitating to buy a PS3 now, if MGS4 and FFXIII are coming to 360. There is no point. Sony needs to respond pretty fast here.
@ e3 "msg4 will be only on the ps3"
@ TSg "FF13 only on ps3"
chill out it's called a rumors....
That really sounds wise. Sell the PS3, and buy a360 along with FFXIII so you can play 640p and feel the thrill of the impending RRoD. Well, that's a way to get entertained. Sure.
We didn't quit on PS3, they quit on us. They didn't want to spend the money to keep excusives, they didn't want to spend the money to lower the price when they saw they made a mistake. I don't blame XBOX 360 for that, I blame PS3.
That's right. They spend the money to build a working machine.
Listen mate those games (MGS4 &FF13) are PS3 exclusives and are not going anywhere near 360 just as much as Halo3 is not coming to ps3 so if you want to waist your time with M$ and get 360 (rubbish value for money) go ahead, but don't waist your time dissing PS3 because at least they've got a reliable machine which unfortunately don't see and are delivering now and will deliver a lot more in the end.
Don't say I didn't warn you
Could it happen?
Why are you cutin an pastin the same post on multiple articles? Your borderline spamin now dude. No need to be so insecure about a rumour man.
These 40G rumours are ridiculous....as much credibility as MGS & FF going to Xbox 360 or PGR going to Ps3.
It's been unofficially confirmed that Sony have a new model meaning its a new SKU. Although it may not be 40GB, it does still mean a new SKU
Im sorry I know this is off topic, and Im glad the French are getting a cheaper SKU because its time the PS3 was more affordable, but couldn't they have bundled a better Blu-ray movie? Im mean honestly, Spiderman 3 was just terrible...
Why the hell is lightning spamming(word?)all the PS3 news with his stupid crap. Seriously if a rumor has got you spooked and you now want to sell your system then your a moron. I hope you do sell your PS3 and then the rumor proves to actually be false so i can see you spamming the PS3 news again saying I'm a moron I sold my PS3 because of a rumor.
they sold the remaining 60gb's for 299? I bet we would see an instantaneous jump of around 200,000 consoles. (or however many are left)
Darn, better not. In that case I'd gotta buy another one for sure.
So £299.99 for 40gb and £349.99 for 80gb.
Is that really such big news? I was expecting something more spectacular than that.
