It seems gamers aren't the only people excited about Sony's cheaper 40GB PlayStation 3 as UK retail store GAME has recently given its stamp of approval.
And why aren't there more positive articles like this bout the price cut Sony made...?
A good question Denim Dan.Probably the large 360 fanbase here on N4G.
Seems as if only Xbox 360 fans are mad about no B/C.(No Offense)
lol. does it matter if theres any good articles for the ps3? will it make you feel better about your purchase? your screwd anyways so what game says dosent matter.
And I never wanted a 360 or a wii.No offense they're just not my shot of Hen.
Screwed? How, you would have to be blind or ignorant(or both)to not see the PS3 has a future.Luckily I'm a patient man so I can wait for good games.
well i had a ps2 and ps1. ps3 is just too expensive. the only reason why i even got a ps2 was because of GTA games.on ps1 my favorite game was driver 1 and 2...so halo and GTA are my favorite games ever, so with gta4 and halo 3 being on 360 , its a must have console for me. all of the other ps3 ,360 games dont intrest me.. well maybe only mgs ,splintercell and masseffect
And you are the type of posters in these forums/communities that just create hostility. Instead of taking a neutral approach you decide to bring drama into this.
Would it make me feel better? I would still feel the same about my favorable console than if there was no or tons of positive articles. What WOULD make me feel better is when there is a positive article, it is nowhere to be seen, and xBox/PS3 fans flock like birds when there is a negative article of the PS3 and they take that basis as the whole world..
I think the PS3 has a lot of potential, and a giant future and guys like you, who favor the XBox seem to be either highly misinformed or just to choose to be blinded... Whatever it may be, the question should be do you feel better after posting in an article like this? Do you feel like you need to be at the defense of the 360 whenever someone posts something slightly positive of the PS3? hmm... I'm here to consult, talk to me buddy
there has to be a limit to trolling
There is no way a game like HALO 3 with bland graphics and gameplay could attract consumers. In EU only the XBOTS purchased x360 and HALo 3.
what is shocking is the fact that all x360s including the 65nm falcon are 100% defective.
i completely agree with you. These BOTS although very few in numbers do realize the pounding x360 is about to get from the 40gig ps3.
ps3 is expensive????????????????????
ps3 40gig +BD player +wifi+ HDMI 1.3 costs the same as defective elite with none of the features and 50 $ per annum for useless online with 2D text achievements.
face it bots ;- X360 IS NOW FINISHED
as an FPS lover i would never pick anything over Resistance,Killzone 2 and Crysis.
@BLOODY BASTARD BOT
WE WANT A RELIABLE GAMING MACHINE NOT A CHEAP LOW POWER AND DEFECTIVE X360 WITH NO GAMES
X360S SELLING??????????????????????? ???????????????????/
where is x360 selling except NA and some parts of UK
even in UK ps3 runs neck and neck with x360 at 2x the price point.
PS3 has surpassed x360 already in places like France,belgium,middle east etc.
In JAPAN ps3 outsells x360 10:1
Blue RAY outsells HD DVD 9:1 on a worldwide basis.
that garbage box 360 is now dead officially from 10th OCTOBER
WE want a next gaming machine as well as blu-ray player.
we want GAMES AND MOVIES not GAMES or MOVIES
i dont even care. the reason why i even posted was cause of those noobs that approve this. i mean come on..."GAME excited by new PS3 model".. seriously who gives a sh*t. i would say the exact same thing if they posted "game exited over 360 arcade bundle" who the F*** gives a sh*t about this. i guess its ok to post news about ign getting exited over it and gamespot, and all those other places.
edit. @ nasim..
people dont want all that cra*p! they want a video game console! thets why there buying them.. if they wanted a blueray player they would of bought one. sony wouldnt have such horrible sales right now if they didnt put in that piece of sh*t blue ray. i honestly think ps3 would of won this gen easily withough the blueray.
a limit to trolling....?? your the biggest troll on this site, ive seen you post on a BUNCH of halo 3 news.
come on why do u keep adding in stuff about blueray beating hd dvd.. waht does that have to do with 360?? absolutely nothing! i didnt buy it, and thats what makes the 360 great. i wasnt forced to buy it like u were.
my 360 has never broken.. even if it did id rather it break and take 2 weeks to get back cause i know when i get it back theres gonna be new games out. as opposed to having a ps3 and constantly being left out of games due to constant delays and bad framerates.
We want a video game machine, not a Blu-Ray player, asshole.
I respect your opinion. I like Uncharted, EOJ, and Little Big Planet, shooters are getting blander and aren't my favorite anymore.
I don't like your third comment because it's the same about Xbox 360 Halo hype, but whatever, I think this site is a neverending flamewar anyways, and I come here knowing that.

there has to be a limit to trolling ´´
I cant beleave u just said that
And by the way, ur fps selection is crap, resistance is mediocre ( and yes ive plaed it ), killzone 2 and crysis arent even out. Why dont u add some good ones like half life 2, HEY ITS IN THE PS3, SO UR GANA LOVE IT, but i guess it not being ps3 exclusive makes u not care and miss one of the greatest fps of all time. While ur at it, add halo to that list, not even halo 3, just halo, i would love to see you at least play it, instead of constantly bashing it, AS THE FPS LOVER U ARE.
Noob?Yeah I've been here since the beginning of September but I've contributed more than you and you've been here since February.And Blu-ray
suck? How? What makes DVD next gen?
Oh, and just for the record I have nothing against the 360.If you want one buy one.I'm not trying to sell PS3s here.
here's the latest news, MS will have a new 360 with a floppy drive. hahahahahahahahahaha.
i have nothing against blueray or hd dvd. i just dont care about them. nasim says blueray is outselling hd dvd 9-1.. since when do gamers care about movies and brag about them? come on ..thats just sad... i know i would be really pissed if MS included anykinda expensive crap i didnt need into the 360. they keept it basic. what GAMERS want. not all this bs just to use you as pawns in a format war. thanks to u guys sony has just won the format war... they win $ percentage for EVERY blueray movie sold... instead of it being something neutral like hd dvd, all the $$ goes to sony
so that makes it less bad? sony is getting money out of every blueray movie you buy. and will continue to for the next 10 years?since it just won the format war. well i guess they sacraficed one for the other.. they killed their playstation brand to make blueray win...in the end only consumers lose
Sony isn't the only member in the BDA...
stop making sony seem like the only supporter of Blu Ray. they aren't.
Just to let you know first I don't have anything against you man sorry if it seems like I'm calling you out.
But yeah Sony gets money from Blu-Ray they own it, they made it.Doesn't Toshiba get money for HD-DVD?If not there getting screwed.Don't forget movie studios like Paramount getting paid off to go HD-DVD exclusive which was a stupid and shady move.
The Blu-Ray isn't only for movies our games are Blu-Ray too. The Blu-Ray in the PS3 was meant for gaming. Sony made Blu-Ray for the PS3. Blu-Ray to me is for gaming not movies but Blu-Ray movies are good to. And the only way Blu-Ray hurt the PS3 is at launch when they couldn't get enough Blu-Ray drives and ended up with less PS3s.
And since when did the Playstation brand die.I'm beginning to think you're just hating.Why hate?
@2.15? i dunno lol
yea its cool but i really dont see gta being mutliple cds.even gta sanandreas only took up 3.14? gb on the ps2. and that game was collosal in size.im shure theyll find a way to compress gta4 onto the dvd. and dont forget the 360s dvd reads almost 2x faster than the blueray in ps3. so theres gonna be waaay less cropping and stuff like on the ps2 with gta when you drove too fast it would always happen.i think also oblivion took up 6GB for 360. dvd space isnt a constraint unless its japanese developers wich use CGI instead of gameplay cutscenes to fill it.
i dunno what to answer lol.. check your pm's
did u even check the pm's?
well ive read it a couple times... but... nothing beats a video comparison.. check this out
the 360 finished loading by over 15 seconds b4 ps3 even got to the video
(newer than before)
alright man well im gonna turn off the pc. see ya later.
Yeah,I feel ya a lot of games are possible on multiple discs.But what about open world games.Would you want to swap discs to go to the other side of town in say a GTA game? I wouldn't.And wouldn't cost publishers and possibly even the consumer for multiple discs?
Anyway I've enjoyed this little debate more interesting than most of them.
Yeah,But Sony needs money they got in debt just making the PS3.And maybe with the Blu-Ray money they'll support their gaming division and make one hell of a PS4.PS4 thats weird just to type after typing PS3 2000 times.
I'm getting tired its nearly 2:00 A.M. here in Atlanta and you've run out of bubbles(I'll give ya one what the hell).
But the last thing I want know is where did you here that DVD streams faster.I read BlU-Ray streams fast as hell.
newer thats funny yeah I'll check out the video.But I don't think the PS3 will have the draw distance issues the PS2 had no matter which streams faster I'm sure the 360 and PS3 will be okay in that area.Both are far improved upon the PS2.
I checked out the video it was faster but it was tony hawk.No two games are the same even if they are the same game but on different consoles.
Aight see ya dude.
u will get it u kno u will as soon as it gets known how be used properly unlike the 360 at its full potential.the ps3 will get the best stuff round and ur gonna run to best buy or some wal mart and buy ur self1 u kno u will the xbox is done and it still doesnt interest me.
This will make PS3's sell like hotcakes in the UK especiall now that games europeans really care about are finally on the system. Fifa pre evo soccer, singstar, and a whole other games. All the greats might not be out yet but by the time GT5 rolls out, MGS4, KZ2, GOW3, Along with all the undercover ps3 exclusives that will hit nxt yr
i love my ps3 and the games for the system.. Cant wait to buy rahet and clank this month
HAHAHA Bloody Sinner is a Douche Bag!!!
In the end all of this nonsense doesn't matter because seldom do people have the same exact opinion and tastes. While I don't like the 360 I can acknowledge that there are alot of good games for system(It's been out for almost 2 years). I would prefer a PS3 because most of the games that I play were on PS2 and will be PS3 exclusive. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion so like those who have 360's are satisfied for their own reasons, the same would be true for PS3 owners.
All xbots should stop sucking major c0ck, and buy a PS3 you know you want one.
GAME is very excited that Sony are screwing over consumers by going back on their promise with Backwards Compatibility, the problem is that there will be nothing to play anymore on the PS3 then
why do u wright something if u know its just not true..... so boring really. why would i buy and like a ps3 if there werent any games... jebus just enjoy your 360....
which would be a kick in the ballss to them. bc isnt a big deal , i tried playing older games on my ps3 , and its just not as beautiful as ps3 graphix , no biggie no having bc in the 40 gig model, and mostly everyone still has their ps2 hanging out somehwere, mine is at my grandparents house , and if they sold it, go buy another for 99
$ ya cheap tarts
And you should stop sucking major c0ck right away!!
of course they are happy...if they sell like hot cakes, game will make tons of money in the next five years of systems and software..its all about that dollar bill
@ zhuk.....where did that come from? does sony pose a threat to you? are you trading your 60 gig in for a 40? b/c doesnt matter... you know you want one....any "real" gamer will be enjoying a ps3 in 08
@halo640p...your not helping the cause so you can take that b/s elsewhere
if you want PEACE. I pushed the "shut this user up" tab like it was a (((pressure))) sensitive button..now the ignore button. Ahhhhh yeah that's better. This just goes to show that young mothers need to report dropped and injured children before it becomes a problem later on in life. ; )
PlayStation went on vacation after a decade of putting the nose to the grindstone and working like a slave to serve the PEOPLE.
*Rolling up Sleeves*
Break time is over kids. Time to get this Big Rig back on the road again and SERVE.
This is my salute to NT and HS. I wrote a comment on another thread about 4 hours ago that went a little like this:
Just beat Heavenly Sword and.....well I'm speechless. I'm not going to go on a long rant or give anything away, but as an AVID, avid gamer for the past 20 years I can say that no game has engrossed me into the characters and the mood the way this game did (I mean I played Doom & Doom II on my old PC until my eyes bled but this is so, so different). From the music to the settings to the *EPIC* boss battles - it's just so over the top -- and the ending is just blowing me away right now.
...This game moved me, and believe me that doesn't come easy - I'm a pretty stone-faced person even about some of the most hilarious or dramatic things. You are going to love playing through to the end of this game I can see the replay value is through the roof with all of the combos to master and ______ mode.
So that was my feeling on the game and this is just a small tribute to the game. Guess I'll roll with it for a little while. Thanks!
Of course they're happy, the new elite SKU made them a bunch of money and this new PS3 SKU will too.
If Game are really happy about this will they prevent their fat, ginger bearded, spotty, idiot staff from trying to sell people 360's when they are asking about PS3's?
Apparantly there is a certain Game store in Bristol where this is rumoured to happen a lot. The culprit is a ginger bearded spotty salesman according to one of my staff.
