Hitting Europe, Australia, the Middle East and Africa next week, a new 40GB PlayStation three looks to have a more palatable price point. But there is one major drawback of the new model.
Does a bear sh!t in the woods?
LMAO!! couldnt have said it beter.
Does an xbox suffer from RROD
OF course its gonna sell and what with a great november of games to look forward too and with a mighty lineup of game's and Blu ray movies the PS3 will have by the end of next year the PS3 will be untouchable
SORRY sad little xbots but you see the PS3 owners are all pumped about next year are you!!!NO
i laughed so damn hard. damn...thank you for the laugh bro
i would so buy this version if i wouldnt allready own one. ps2 games? no need anymore. thats history.
That's exactly what Sony wants gamers to think.
they want people to buy a 100% defective console that charges for useless online, has a old dvd drive has no wifi and breaks within 2 days
An x360 has no games too and plays at 640 p.
Gears and Bioshock are on PC too.
50$ for useless online
no HDMI 1.3 support
no next gen player --200 for a useless HD DVD (dead format ) add on that plays only movies
no wifi --and 100$ to buy a wifi
total of 800$ that is what nasty XBOTS wasnt people to do...pay 800$ for a backdated and defective console with no games
Say bye-bye to bubble, nasim. Creating a new account won't save you.
...any better BloodySinner?
sure thats what sony wants people to think, becouse it makes sense. i never palyed ps1 games when i bought my ps2. there are so many fun games to play in next gen. and if someone really is a hardcore fan, he can pay more money or keep his ps2.
Couldn't have said it better myself. If I wasn't in college, I would probably buy another for my folks as a home media center for them.
in Redmond WA they sh1t on the consumer
i kid i kid
are u serious? Have you looked at the europe figures? ITS SELLING LIKE F))K U IDIOTS, JESUS WHAT A STUPID POST MADE BY FANBOY TEENAGERS
My goodness. not again. Aren't there weeks of posts about this?
Personally I dont understand why it is selln so much when u get the 80 gig with alll the bells and whistles and motorstorm for $500? like jus dont make sense why I would go for the stripd down one
so the FUD has begun again.
wifi,blu ray, internet browsing,run linux and other operating systems,bluetooth,rechargeable controllers,interchangeable hard drive,whisper quiet,7 contollers connectable at once,free online gaming,amazing games starting to now appear and the 2008 gamelist is astounding (also a quality looking piece of equipment)and all for the price of an IPHONE,will it sell? stupid question really.
Just got one off amazon uk, its my second PS3. Looks great in the living room, my mother loves it ha!
wouldn't people who owns ps2 games would already own a PS2?
when did sony said gamers won't need ps2 games?
We shall see.....we shall see....
ESPICIALLY IN AMERICA. now i know people are gonna get angry with what im about to say but, IN AMERICA, ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE VERY IGNORANT AND ALL THEY WOULD SEE IS THE SAME PRICE AS THE 360 AND GO BY BRAND NAME (MOMS AND DADS AT LEAST) you know how dumb some of the people i talk to are. they think every game looks better on ps3 and i just listen. its because of people like that, that it will sell because they wont know anything about it not having BC and will get it anyway.
are correct!! now ps3 ports looks better if not the same!! COD modern war fare?? and also others!! beside when they bought for u a ps1 and ps2 it lasted with u for many years so they trust it! and with the price cut every thing on the ps3 is better!! blue ray, free online, wireless, wifi,cell,doesnt break,and finally playstation 3 from SONY!! how will u convince them that x360 is a better deal if they can both in same range of price?
Time will tell if this will sell well.
i have no crystal ball but i think the odds are stacked in the ps3 40gig selling quite a lot corner, i think this is what potential ps3 owners have been waiting for
the 40GB is not the prefered model but it's the most convienent for possible impulse buy at $399 and Spider-man 3 Blu ray.
If Sony continues to release great bargins on the 60GB model, then a lot of people will go for that instead.
So who knows, it doesn't matter what model sells, PS3 just needs sales anyway it can get them.
And its gonna sell Sh1t loads
I think it will sell well. The mainstream Playstation gamer wants a PS3 to play PS3 games, they've just been waiting for the price to come down - all the while playing their PS2s. I think everything else is a distant second to that.
If you walk in the store and look at the 360 and PS3 side by side now and read the descriptions that are there, why would you buy a 360 when the prices are similar? 360 is last gen. but PS3 is now and maybe "beyond"...... LOL pun-intended. Granted, 360 has some more cool games, but the last time I looked at BB, CC and Amazon, there are quite a bit to choose from now.
Hey, I play both consoles. Actually, I'm really looking forward to Mass Effect coming out on 360. But looking from a strictly economic point of view, PS3 has the upper hand right now. 360 might be ahead this winter, but it'll be the last hoorah for MS until their next gen. comes out. And Wii..... who cares about the little sister that follows their big brothers around (well, at least until she's 18)???
It's already sold out!!!!
yes a lot of people waiting for the price drop but sony came out with a new sku and lower price..people can afford or their parents can..
...we had news with a similar title a couple of weeks ago contributed by Bloodmask.
Here you go:
where were you when it was pending?
oh well, guess it'll give the fanboys something to fight over for 20 minutes...
it willnot be that successful.
The BC issue will scare many gamers away and they will be scrambling for a 60 gig or a 80 gig which is already more expensive.[back at square 1, and back to waiting]
If you look at a lot of gamer boards and threads you'll see what some gamers are thinking..gamers that have the 60 gigers don't care much or they don't play ps2 games ever again, i wonder if they would ever trade their 60 giger for a 40 giger?
BC will prove to be very important, especially when the PS2 continues to sell so many games and consoles.
You just cannot cut BC in an effort to increase PS3 software sales...
Really the Ps2 has sold over 100 million consoles how much more expensive was it to keep the BC chip in there? anyhow thats just my speculation, a lot of which parents and some gamers are not even aware of.
Wait till they get home, lets say they trade in their PS2 and buy the 40 gig ps3 and attemp to play one of their AAA PS2 titles. There is gonn abe some dissappointments, well see how this pans out.
I agree with part of what you're saying. But because the PS2 has sold over 100 million consoles, if people want to play PS1 or 2 games, they'll be playing on the 100 million-plus consoles that were sold. If it really bothers a PS3 owner that much about a BC with PS3, than just buy the 60 gig version as I did. Plus I'm pretty sure that most of the orginal PS1 or PS2 games will be available to download on-line through Sony sooner rather than later.
for what? like £1.25 or something. dont think so.
Next week!??! I've seen the 40GB model on sale here in Finland 1 month ago...
This is stupid. Europe, Austrailia have had it since October 10th. Its america!
LOL Typical American reaction..... LOL
this ps3 sku will sell no doubt..im own both systems i bought 360 for gears n lost planet but now to c it on pc with new levels i must say i want to piss on MS...whats the meaning of exclusive when we can get to play it on any other platform after a span..i like sony in tht..they always come up with new things...diversity is always the key for sony they got companys like,ninja theory, team ico, naughty dog, insomnica,team god of war, suker punch, now they mite bring bungie on there side who knws..this season when ratchet gets full launch at 30 with uncharted and UT3 plus haze to follow its a must buy for everybody who like games...atleast im happy tht i dont get to c resistance on anyother platfrom which i personally like more thn dumb 640p disappointment halo 3 lying in ma trash...whatever u can call me fanboy of sony..iyeh i grew up playing t 10 yrs is a long time with..what 360 gave me disappointment and red ring of death twice...most of the kids who come say sht here dint get there 360 burned sky high thts y they are taking sides...im just waitng for 2 games mass effect which i presume will go pc as well plus ninja gaiden 2..if i c any these on other platform ill throw 360 in trash can..any body whoses interested can pick it from there thn.....
It's nice that it has WiFi and a 65nm processor. I wouldn't worry about PS2 games... they'll probably release a firmware update to make them compatible once the 80GB PS3 stock is depleted. They just don't want you to know that, since they rather have you pay in full for the 80 GB PS3 than wait to pay less with a price drop or for the cheaper SKU when they have more expensive stock to get rid-off.
Its by how much that i am interested. I am fairly confident that it will sell alot to those who have been waiting for a siginificant price drop and a decent game libary. I see those who will be wanting a blu ray player will by this in the holiday season.
You summed it up perfectly. We want to know "HOW much", not "will it..."
i think it will sell well, it is even more silent, with a 65nm cell, and uses not as much power. who needs bc? the peaple who need it, can buy onother version.
The BC thing shouldnt be that big of a deal. If you have a playstation 3 then play playstation 3 games. If u have ps2 games then you must have a ps2 so u can play ur ps2 games on ur ps2!!
yes sir buddy...
go for the 60gb ps3 coz i have a ton of ps2 games
I dont have much confidence in the new PS3, but I could be wrong, have been before. I hope that it does sell well though. I don't know if the whole PS2 backwards compatability would be such a big deal. I honestly only play SOCOM: Combined Assault and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas(when i'm really p!ssed, killing sprees ftw) but thats about it.
500$ for a 80 gb is a game 60$+ another 40gb HB and PS2 games. That is quite a bunddle. 400$ is not a deal compare to 80 gb, but Motor Storm said it is for a limited time.
A 300-350$ PS3 40gb would make sence to me.
It will not sell. And the sony ps3 forum asking people what console is best fot them, 3% said 40gb.
that tell alot.
.....but it's gonna sell good. Guess what people? I'm gonna be one of those buyers! A 40GB PS3 will be in my room very soon.
it already is !
Why was this posted as news!!Have we not already seen numerous threads on this exact topic!!Nobody knows what will happen so just shut up and wait for the release of the console, then when the numbers come out draw your conclusions then. Damn kids...
it's already been released around australia...
