Simple economics says that when you bring the price of something down, as long as the demand is there, more people will buy it, and that's been proven true by Sony as sales of the PlayStation 3 have jumped after a price cut on the console last week.
there no doubt that with the price cut ps3 were going to go up. thing are looking good and with game like R&C,uncharted,haze,mgs4,ff 13, and gt5, the ps3 sale are going to be in the million and there no doubt in the mind of the people now. this is all sony needing to boost sale and now all the ps2 gamer waiting for price to go down can now upgrade there system to a ps3 and let me tell you that allot of people (120million)sony goin to get.
Wow, this is old news. The article even says:
"Exactly which of the two versions of the hardware is responsible for the biggest part of the sales rise is unclear"
It's already been reported that 90% of the sales were from the 60GB version. I expected something different because of the title, but the fact is that this has been reported before on this site. Still, good news for Sony and anyone that didn't already read this.
but that phrase is TYPICALLY used when things are looking bleak for a company...
http://www.magweasel.com/im... We all know how that story ended.
Return of The Xbox 360?
Wow, 6 people disagreed with me and nobody agreed. How can you people be so biased? It's a FACT that this has been reported before, so what's there to disagree about? Fanboyism at it's worst, I swear. This site is turning into nothing but Sony-loving garbage, and you cunts can't even accept little insignificant truths if they are in any way negative towards Sony. I even say good news for Sony that their sales increased, and you sluts still flame me. Fųck you all...
it's too early on a sunday morning for this
Another pro PS3 news on N4G boringggggggggg
It's never to early for playstation 3 news.
Indeed, is it ever too early for a flame war?
sure sales will go up for sony... but wont they lose more money at these price points?
I mean, it's no secret the ps3 has the expensive hardware goods packed inside the box.
agreed this is old news,but it proves one thing, people are biding their time and are jus waitin for the ps3 price to fall, millions of gamers me included grew up on playstation the ONE and ONLY brand that made gamin cool and brought it to the masses!
no1 including xbox owners cant deny ps3 is an amazin piece of tech and by xmas the argument of ps3 has no games will be void jus like the argument of ps3 is expensive is now void pound for pound its now the betta value for money console out their even makin the wii look expensiv for what it does.
microsoft said hdmi isnt important then brought out the elite and now snuck it in to all their consoles i feel sorry for the true xbox owners microsoft jus doesnt care bout u they are runnin scared of sony which makes dem do actions like this whilst you still blindly follow them not knowin microsoft dnt care bout its loyal consumers.
microsoft said addin bluray is ps3 downfall now they wanna add it to their console as standard bcoz of how ps3 has brought hi def to the masses jus like the ps2 did with dvds mcrosoft are a copy company jus ask apple and their doin the same to sony but the dif is sony make quailty goods and microsoft hav used all their big guns 2early (bioshock,halo and mass effect) they got no reply for 2008 except to drop the price to £99
Sony said multiple sku's we're confuseing.
Sony said 600 dollars (then later 500) was acceptable to the consumer.
Sony said people would get 2nd jobs to afford the ps3.
Sony said 5 million ps3's would sell with no games *it took them near a year to sell 5 million*.
Sony Said 1080p/120fps on all games.
Sony said they would not have a price drop any time soon.
I have more but i tink i need only list that, Sony has said much more then microsoft and either not delievered or contradicted them selves not a month later.
P.S:Sony said BC was a strong point of ps3 *even said it was 100% when that was a lie* decryed microsoft for having limited bc, and have thus taken out supposed *100%* Backwards compat with the ps3 in europe and america, and now will be releaseing a 40 gig with no ps2 BC whatsoever.
P.S.S:Oh and you know alot of those games releaseing on ps3 in 2008....those are multiplatform, microsoft only has mass effect...ect sony only has mgs4, and ff13, most every thing else they have is multiplatform.
before you'll criticize sony why don't you'll criticize M$ for there statement
"1080P is unheard of this generation"
"DVD will last generation"
"Were giving are customers choice"
Don't kid yourself bro the PS3 has been out 1 year in US, Canada, Japan, and 7 months in UK, Spain, Italy, Australlia, Korean, Germany, Poland, New Zealand, etc.. You get my point this thing hasn't even been out a year in majority of countries and the sales of 5 million with it's high price point and "no" games has to worry worry even XBOX fans. I mean what has the XBOX been average 6 million console a year with a 25% lower price.
MS: we are with in the 2 to 3% failure rate. This supposed problem is overblown and false. They were saying this up until a month or 2 before E3 until the lid blew off.
We could go back and forth until the XBox 1920 and the PS6 come out with blurbs from Sony and MS. Try harder.
i want it to be 2008 already so we can shut these ps3 fanboys up its like nothig u say gets into their skuls they only reason u seewe them on the net is that u can surf some webiste on ur ps3 so ps3 user have taken over the nt while normal consumers still wont but the pshhite3(ps3)
in 2008 not many PS3 owners will be surfing the net anymore, since we all know the PS3 will have quiet a few "Must Have" games. I guess you can play..uuh...Mass Effect? idk.
are you stupid?2008 is when the PS3 will shine.The 360 has 2007.Next year there won't be nothing but great games for the PS3.Just thought I'd let you know.
What's ironic about these stupid arguments is that the only reason the PS3 has a great 2008 lineup is that all of the best games slipped from a holiday 2007 release target. Q1 traditionally has no great games releasing.
Don't you think that if MGS4 could have been ready that it would have sold even better for the holiday? It doesn't make any sense to hype 2008 in holiday 2007. All that does is convince people that there's no sense in buying until 2008.
is microsoft still finishing the fight with there consumers over scrachted copys of halo 3 edition ? go play your deadbox 360 maggets
The mighty PS3 will start 2008 with a bang....and then from early on the system will climb to the top as did the PStwo. Watch People...am telling you, them S.O.N.Y. Mother....ers know exactly what they are doing.
as we sit here and argue like idiots on who's gonna win this Gen, they already know the outcome. they are very good planning sh!ts that we will soon see unfold and take place right here in front of our eyes. I know for fact that SONY has something up their long ass sleeves. Mark my words. it wont be much longer.......
generations by HUGE landslides unless you have a clue when it comes to gaming consoles.
MS = rich boys with no clue
Man this site is nothing but blind Sony fans. I usually don't post but your statement is so dumb I had to.
Ya Sony knows exactly what they're doing that's why they have had to beg developers not to abandon the PS3 platform; That doesn't seem like they really know the outcome. So please stop spotting ignorant fanboy lines and get a grip on reality.
I know I'm going to get disagrees because I'm not praising the PS3, but it's a plain fact Sony has been begging developers not to drop their platform. You better hope they find a reason not to or the PS3 is going to be like the original X-box.
To sofa, your statement is the definition of ironic considering the PS3 has always been more expensive then the 360. Please think before you say something.
Over the past year, and even in spite of some glaring issues the 360 has enjoyed the limelight and run away with the vast majority of accolade from the media.
Now, expect favoritism to seemingly shift to the PS3s side over the course of the next year. All of those sites and publications many of us labeled as biased will start to have a shift in said bias to the Sony side, and it's already starting. Soon enough, we'll be seeing more praise, specials, and generally positive articles about the PS3, and it has nothing to do with the merit of the console itself, believe it or not. It's simple, the media will go where the hype is, and they'll ride that train until it eventually loses steam. We've seen it before, and it continues to happen.
My point is, those of us that lash out at these sites/publications and take it a step further and harbor grudges are simply playing into their hands, because that sort of stuff generates buzz, negative or not, and buzz = hits, and hits = $$$. Anybody think the Editor in Chief of PSM REALLY was off his rocker when he said what he said about Home and the PS3? Think again. Now, all eyes are on that publication just to see what he says next. It was a brilliant move. I'll admit, that stuff got to me too, because quite frankly it's very unprofessional and is completely lacking in the integrity department, but hey, that's the big media machine. That's the nature of the beast these days.
I say these things because I hope everyone can take a bit of humility away from all of this, because what we're on the heels of makes the PS3 crowd poised to unleash a flurry of mudslinging and flames, and that's just petty, particularly considering that the media really isn't on YOUR side as you may think. The media goes where the money is, simply put.
Anyway, enough of my ranting.
so your big thing is home? oooo home? you mean i get to played a gimped PG13 2nd life on ps3? WOW!!!!!!
I will edit since I only have 2 more bubble spaces left.
Its odd how you have so many bubbles since pretty much 70% of you time spent on the site is calling other people stupid to their faces but using bigger wordss.
as for that I was criticizing this
"I'll admit, that stuff got to me too, because quite frankly it's very unprofessional and is completely lacking in the integrity department, but hey, that's the big media machine. That's the nature of the beast these days.""
I totally ignored the rest of what you said because its tripe and nothing but, So I centered in on the fact you got taken in and felt it was lacking in the integrity? lol what a stupid word to use, The editor in CHIEF gave his opinion thats what hes paid to do, yet to pundits like you its lacking integrety? how so? because he said home was basically crap? thats his opinion and integrity has nothing to do with it, and since you we're taken in and think it has no integrity what he said I can assume you think home will be a success.
Your talking about a freaking VIDEO GAME Magazine...I didn't know professionalism came into the equation let alone integrity since if you look at the game industry as it is, he showed a hell of alot more then the above mentioned items then most devs, and execs do.
I knew centering in on one specific item would pull you out of the wordwork.
Theres nothing worse then people whom complain and do nothing about it, you whin and ***** yet instead of doing something about it you come online and rant about it.
since the only thing your feeble mind chose to zero in on was Home. Try again, use your comprehension skills this time. Using that brain that you're obviously not too blessed to have can do you some good in the long run, you know.
Like I said. It went over your head. You criticize me for complaining and showing a lack of character, when the point of my post was addressing such issues within the community. FYI - I was saying that the PS community shouldn't use the up and coming momentum shift as BS flame ammo, and that the media will reflect such a change. Trolls such as yourself couldn't care less about civility though. You'd rather antagonize me b/c you apparently have nothing better to offer. For someone who's taking a stab at my character, you're a real class act.
I'll break it down for you though. The man is a professional, correct? Are you trying to imply that the video game industry isn't comprised of professionals? I wonder how EA stays afloat. Anyway, as the EiC of a PS magazine, it's the guy's responsibility to his target audience to keep the spirits high. Otherwise, he risks losing the very fanbase that his audience is directed towards. Beyond that, what he said about Home may have been opinion, but I'd say it was pure conjecture, not to mention declaring they drop all plans for it and literally copy XBox Live's business model.
I say it lacked integrity because the statement was contrived. It was obvious that it was said only to get people looking, particularly since his opinion was based on absolutely nothing, a mere declaration that Home sucked, Live was king and Sony should just ride their coat-tails. How on earth is something like that remotely professional? If it was based on more than the will to create controversy and subsequent buzz, then sure, but it wasn't, and him refraining from supporting his opinion with any sort of points says enough about that.
"Theres nothing worse then people whom complain and do nothing about it, you whin and ***** yet instead of doing something about it you come online and rant about it."
Oh believe me, you fit that bill remarkably well yourself, on top of being an antagonistic troll. How often do you add anything other than an inflammatory remark to a discussion?
but that won't stop me from saying PS3 is in some deep trouble. They have to step it up. I was a big PS2 fan, but as of now- Sony just ain't cutting it.
Home is to be released next year, better development tools are out, developers are getting a hang of the architecture, updates are being made to make the experience better for the user, and of course, the library is steadily growing.
As an owner, I agree, they really haven't been cutting it up to about a month or two ago, but that is most certainly changing.
A man can only take so much Warhawk and Calling all Cars!
Then play Tekken 5, Folklore, HS, download GT 5 Prologue, RFOM, Ninja Gaiden, Madden 08....
Then play Tekken 5, Folklore, HS, download GT 5 Prologue, RFOM, Ninja Gaiden, Madden 08....
I don't like the Tekken series, Folklore is too linear for my tastes, Heavely Sword was too short, GT5 Prologue is out? Never liked Racing games, RFOM? the acros are getting too long, Ninja Gaiden was a last gen game, don't like football games.
Waiting for Assassins's Creed, COD4, LP, KZ2,FF13,MGS4(even though I never liked the MGS series)UT3, and a few others.
Funny how I'm waiting for some of the same titles. No too much longer my friend. Not too much longer.
You act as if Sony has no variety of games...we have a game of every genre. The huge variety that the 360 has is fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fp s,fps,did i forget to mention fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fps,fp s,fps,fps...if you are bored of the Ps3 games youll probably die of boredom if you have a 360...oh yea and fps,fps,fps
As far as I have seen in terms on word on the street...or blog...whatever...has been ALWAYS the price keeping people from buying a PS3
Its its pretty revealing reading all the comments people leave when someone writes a blog about having bought a PS3 almost every single ones besides the congrats is something related to waiting for a price cut or similar
So I expect a boom in sales for the "waiters" market that are mostly...you guessed the million of PS2 owners
.....i really love my 360....its an awesome console, but i do think PS3 in 2008 will catch up in sales figures. I am glad i own one, because i know 100% that there are going to be incredible games coming out for it in 2008 onwards whereas with my 360 i am worried past xmas 2007. Anyhow props where its due, and sony deserve it for FINALLY listening regarding price and doing something about it, hopefully they get the rewards they deserve.
"when you bring the price of something down, as long as the demand is there, more people will buy it"
Who didnt know that?
next year 2008 it like all Ps3 owners are playing games, while the x-box 360 owners are trying to find which games that is not scratched so they can finally play it, but you know what, as soon they find out that all of the games are wreck, and what do they say, "WE ARE SO FACK !!!"
Muhahahaha! are you serious? Nix are you serious? Man If you are, that is so hilarious, If M$ would do that (having upgrading x-box 360 to play Hd-dvd games) that would cost the x-box 360 even more by the time it release that sku and I would guess that probably Ps3 40gb $299 and 80gb will $399 by then and x-box 360 sku will be $499/$449, at that rate x-box 360 owners will more likely to be defect to PS3 or the wii if they release. I mean how stupid are they if they gonna release that Sku, simply they got too much problem at the moment and why on earth do they want more problems into their company while they having spending billions of Dollars just to solve the RROD and the disc scratched over the years, If you expect they would be release that SKU I think you'd need to learn more about x-box 360 owners cause most of them don't want to buy that Sku for sure, If they would be buying they would probably thinking "why on earth do I have to buy this x-box 360 sku with a price tag higher than the PS3, and BTW PS3 this year (2008) have a really good line up of games and it more reliable without any disc scratched on games and movies, if the new sku x-box 360 is better than the Elite this time but how do I know I can trust, seem all I heard and experienced that x-box 360 has much more failure rates than the PS3 so why am I stupid enough to fall for it this time"
wait until MS brings out 360s with embedded HD-DVD drives and games in HD-DVDs... all the current owners will have to "upgrade". but then again, they are so blind that they'll probably cheer MS for that!
what i don't understand that are people so dumb? must be, no wonder MS is making billions.
How do xbox owners justify ps3 is expensive when most of them spent more on the misc. equipment such as HD-DVD player, headsets, wifi, and others.
"How do xbox owners justify ps3 is expensive when most of them spent more on the misc. equipment such as HD-DVD player, headsets, wifi, and others."
Lets see why don't you give the misc list?
I know i'll do it....
Camera...Oh wait you have to pay for that on the ps3...
Headset..Oh wait all 360's come with one....
Wireless headset...Oh you have to buy that seperate on the ps3.
Wifi....Oh wow do you need this? let alone the fact on recent surveys on pc magazine less then 40% of home users have a router, less then 20% of those own an wireless one...lets see Do i need the wifi usb attachment for 99? nope I can go out and buy a cheap USB wifi adaptor *some work* or a wireless birdge *of which something like 99% of them work*
Bluray/hd dvd:do i need this? only to watch hd dvd movies its a forced comodity on the ps3 I have no choice in the matter, so basically the only thing right now I could use the bluray in that for is games, Because DVDS are perfectly fine for movie watching, Because me like a good 60% of the rest of the world doesn't give a dip about extras they just wanna watch the movie, I have no 1080p tv or dolby hd, hd dts receiver to take advantage of hd dvd or blu ray.....
PS2 beat up Xbox, cause it's price was alway's 50$ less (as far as I remember) did not have better graphic, my knowledge there is Star wars battlefront and some other games that got more details.
But now PS3 have to catch up Xbox, then Wii. That is hard. But they are working on th 45nm with a competitor to share profits and lost, that is amazing news. So next year we will get at Xmas a 300$ console and Wii will be 200$. Xbox will sell at lost and would be beat by PS3 during the 2008 year. Halo 3 (they could have called it the end of Xbox) was the last card they could play (the joker). There even chances that PS2 be tight at Xmas with Xbox.
Sony know what they are doing, price cut on PS2 did alot, with that price cut and those that come with 45nm, they will beat Xbush in 2008. Also MGS4 on blu-Ray will sell alot, and MGS4 online too.
so let me get this straight last gen ps2 beat out the other systems because it was all ways cheaper *yep thats right and they we're constantly selling at a loss, the only system last gen to make profit on its system was the gamecube*....Actually thats only a small part of the reason, The biggest reason was this.......GAMES ps2 had all the games.
Oh and you then go on to say its selling at a loss *actually the ps3 right now all versions are selling at a loss, 80,60,40, and 20 they all sell at a loss* The only systems not selling at a loss right now are....Wii and 360, so you go onto say because they are working n the 45nm? *oh you mean microsoft isnt working on smaller NM processors and gpu? wow* that 360 will lower its price and sell at a loss? how is that possible when right now microsoft isn't selling at a loss, they are infact making profit off the 360 sales, and they are working just a shard as sony to shrink chip sizes to lower the price even more.
Your comment makes no logic sense.
"The only systems not selling at a loss right now are....Wii and 360"
I think putting people on ignore lists is a sign of weakness but I think I see the point when you have SUCH INCREDIBLE STUPIDITY being thrown out there by "xbots".
welcome to my ignore list you monumental idiot.
did that $1 billion "my bad" from MS just suddenly go away.???
cut ur nuts off so you can't contaminate the rest of the world with your stupidity.
360 made profit?> nice man nice. no seriously you're smart, thats why you're always online on N4G. cause you have a life right? yup. you won my smart ass of the day award. congrats.
These articles are for the intrest of Sony PS3 owners or future owners. Why must you come here and state your two sence? I mean with such great games like Halo on your console why aren't you playing it? Sounds fishey to me. But whatever. Yes I do believe PS3 will only go up from here on. Just like it's predesessors.
duh....we could ask the same question why do xbox articles bring out the ignorant sonyfanboys?
and in reply to your post below....um yes they are.....If you make a machine and it costs you 2 dollars to make that, and then you sell it for 14...then thats......P.R.O.F.I.T
Regardless of the debt and money they've put into the 360 and original xbox its still considered profit, profit that is channeled thus into lowering the ammount of money they used on the original and xbox 360.
Wii makes profit *because they've all ready I believe broken even on the investment of the Wii*
Microsoft makes money on each 360 sold, this is considered profit, which is thus channeled into breaking even on the money they've put out for the original and xbox 360.
THANK GOD you used your bubbles. I couldnt take any more of those STR8 up stupid things you've said.Finally you can shut up and i can read the rest of the comments...Oh yea and ill just take away a bubble so hopefully you wont be able to say as much stupid things on other articles...sure would hate to read another 5 dumb pointless things by you.
Actually Microsoft is not profiting from there sales of Xbox 360. With that warranty they put out is losing them money every time an Xbox gets returned and fixed for free.
ps3 is quality. with the price drop youre getting a freaking deal.ps3 alone is worth 400.
......but was that u tell me? i get a browser/media player/ AND A FREKING BLURAY PLAYER? holy feces!!
in case u didnt know now you know.
the ps2 market share=120 mill
currentgen totalsold= 30 mill
potential ps3 buyers= 0-90 million........
now dont get it twisted. if u own a ps2 why would you get a xbox1.5?
rrod/scratched games/exclusives are also on pc/ online fees/microsoft seal of garbage......LOL. u can drop the price of the 360 all u want, but the major underlying problems are still there.
People that want quality thatll last... buy SONY, people that want cheap thrills with a high failure rate buy COBY.
if you know tech, you know this.
BLINK is 100 percent right. i agree 1000% percent with his statement.
lol...silly xboys, ur reign on top was short like leprechauns. the end is near.
Those saying 120 mln PS2 owners will jump in... Wrong. Majority of those gamers just bought the system that had the most games out and was at an affordable price of 200 Euro/Dollar.
Two factors were deciding: out first, 1 year before the XBOX 1, having largest installed base, thus most support (Now the 360 is in that position), the other one was the larger library of games because of that longer time out (also 360 now).
Price now: the 360 will hit 200 to 250 dollar before the PS3. It has the best line up, with most genres covered (70 games over 80% average score, PS3 has 30 of them, the 360 has 10 games over 90% average score, PS3 has one (Oblivion multiplatform)).
Majority of those 120 mln PS2 owners will just buy the system they like next, not hanging on Playstation. I know many former PS2 owners that have switched to the 360. MANY
It's funny that you think that. Really. I'm laughing at you. The Wii is $250 right now yet the PS3 is selling. And will continue to do so. Price is important, but value is more important. You don't see Hitachi or Toshiba or Sony reducing the price of their LCD TVs to complete with the Walmart special. Why is that? I'll keep saying this because it is true. The 360 will only be as successful as the Xbox 1. It's sales are almost mirrored. Tell yourself whatever you have to, but that's just how it is. Get ready for the Xbox 720 that only plays Gears and Halo 3.
You know many people who've switched to the 360? Wow. 5 people. Yep. MS has this console war in the bag. Unless you know 5 million people who've switched, keep that bit of information to yourself. Why? No one cares.
he's living in his own little world where he believes the majority of gamers actually want that abortion MS calls a console. I've said the same thing before, when MS passes the 26 million console mark with the 360, let me know. Until then it hasn't even done as well as the xbox1.
"Those saying 120 mln PS2 owners will jump in... Wrong. Majority of those gamers just bought the system that had the most games out and was at an affordable price of 200 Euro/Dollar."
The MAJORITY of 120mil PS2 owners have bought a 360? How many 360's do you think are sold?!
first off get a math tutor. u fail.
noone ever said 120 mill. i aligned the numbers so morons of all levels can solve the equation. i guess ure the ubermoron....or omnimoron, persay.
Lets reiterate facts for the the blind/shortsighted and ominmorons.
lets forget about wishful thinkin.
theres bout 90 million gamers that have not taken the next gen plunge. 360 has been out for about 2 years now. the mass percentage of the 120 mill total PS2 owners that were thinking of buying a 360, already have. After all its been 2 years........
from that 90 mill, theres a very large fraction of that pie THAT WILL stick to a quality brand. aka SONY. much like those that buy a mercedez or a beemer. next time thyre looking for new wheels, theres no way in hell theyd go for a hyundai after driving a mercedez or beemer.
Company track records/performance/quality go along way in the eyes of a potential buyer with money in hand. After all noone wants to buy ANYTHING, only to have it replaced consistently. Its just impractical and time consuming.
much like computers, those that go from windows2macs never go back.
anyone with billions of dollars can create a item to compete with a marketleader. they have billions of dollars to BURN. .alll the money in the world cant prevent you from creating that pos in the first place. you cant buy consumer trust and you cant buy quality as a manufacturer. you have to create it. If your track record has a sh1tload of red flags, your new product will be looked upon under the same light.I.e: a ipod compared to a zune. tiger os compared to windows vista.
Ms reputation is widely known by the user-end level mass but they really dont have a "voice" or credibility. PRofessionally, the FORBES link i attached (i.e. post #22)makes this undeniable ...covering the areas where the consumer opinions fails to reach.
its elementary. unless youre an idiot.
You're absolutely right!I've said this myself before,If the majority of Ps2 owners were going to switch to xbox360,THEY WOULD HAVE DONE SO ALREADY!
Bubbles for you my friend.
JUMP OUT & PLAY~B3YOND!
buy a PS3.
I keep saying this: the only persons who believe the Sony PR were the 360 diehards.
I mean, come on, tell me one company that doesn't gloat about their product? Specially when they are the market leaders.
But then you guys aren't capable of looking for example at M$ and all of THEIR lies, like no HDMI needed, or the most blatant one, 'the 360's failure rate is 1 or 2% max', LMFAO.
I mean, when a PR guy says 'Y'know, things break' about the console he is promoting, like it was the most natural thing in the world and NO ONE says anything about it, there is certainly something wrong.
I don't know what is it with M$, but their tacticts must blind some of you ppl.
i agree completely. its funny i almost forgot about the 1-2% FACT. they also bashed home......now theyre developing one?
i can honestly say that when ms bashes something= why didnt we think of that...lets copy and paste it.
Short and simple they steal ideas after they so boldly bash it. I know that this holiday the PS2 owners that were on the fence for two years will make there decisions. 400$ is an amazing price for what you get. Forget the fact that they dropped the price 200 bucks in less then a year. They did what they had to do to make there consumers happy. If xbox 360 owners can't see that this system is now in the same price range of the box and more bang for the buck then I don't know whats wrong with them. I pitty them. I own a Wii and 360. As well as my PS3. And I can tell you I love them all. If you are so ignorant to stick to a brand then by all means do.
But in the end you lose. You will be getting deprived from good games by your own stupidity and brand loyal fanboyism.
PS3 innovator........Xbox360 imitator
The pS3 isn't striking back sh!t because like i've said before it's just to ahead of it's time to be any good! All of this talk about Sony taking 2008 and 360 fans being stupid is just laughable because 360 fans see PS3 fans as just sore loosers and thats the real truth! 2008 up until 2009 will belong to 360 so just get used to it and quit whining because it makes you all look so sad and desperate! Whenever the next Xbox comes out you guys can have this gen all to yourself and keep preaching that the PS3 is so great and mighty lol! The Ps3 has some good games coming out in 2008 but don't be surprised when 360 titles start to be announced and have just as good a lineup. The bottomline is that you guys are so arrogant to the point to where it makes me proud to be a 360 owner and see how terribly Sony is doing regardless of what the fanboys say! Sony started this whole console war crap with sega Saturn and i guess many of you grew up with that mentality of thinking that Sony is always the best no matter what. I'm sorry guys but times have changed and it's time to grow up and take it like a men!
It takes a real man to have to see the same post office worker 4 times and not be embarrassed for yourself...and have them ask what will you be sending out today....my Xbroke360....werent you just in here last week? yes maam
Actually is the UPS guy and it's embarrassing when you drop and off and the UPS tells you "Must be Another one of those broken XBOX?", "We must get 50,000 a day of these broke XBOXs." Now thats icing on the cake.
Why would I be embarrassed for myself. I didn't design it, build it, or pay a cent to have it fixed. I'm actually proud that I picked a product that after a year and a half of heavy use is being fixed for free. Unlike my PS2 that after 5 months I had to buy another one when Sony would not acknowledge the disc read errors and their customer support literally laughed at me. Now that was embarrassing. BTW they are shipped via UPS.
What the hell is your logic? Thats all I have to say to you.
Yes wow and a little over the edge but true!
this apparent PS3 site has Xbox 360 as a sponsor. Strange!
They should give Xbroke360 owners a level up and achievement points for every time they send in their console LOL ....im up to level TOOL...how bout you...Im up to level sheep...but I hope to make it to stooge by next week...they see the Ups guy so often they probably know him by name LOL
since they had to BUY more than one console to keep gaming on PoS2. Sure they made the PS3 better because they made so much money off people BUYING more than one PoS2. Owned!
