Leading retailer GameStop continues to benefit from the booming game industry and Michael Pachter thinks the new $399 PS3 will help drive even more foot traffic.
The gamestop bye my home, are sold out!
Why would people buy the 40gb instead of the 80gb?
It is more money that not everyone wants to spend. The 80GB BC is not even 100%. If I had to choose between the 80 or the 60 ... I would get the 60. I want the 40GB model since I could care less about BC and all I need is two USB ports. Most times it is only me playing, and when I have more, it is normally just me and one bud. Plus, I will just chuck in my 160GB Sata drive. BUT ... I am also hoping to see the 60GB model take a price cut from local shops to move them. I would be all over that.
Didn't Pachter say that it wouldn't do well? Funny how people love to change their opinions when its too late.
Maybe the $399 PS3 will drive more traffic to Gamestop but for me it's all the new games for the PS3 that will. There haven't been many to buy this year. Now there are plenty.
yeah i was surprised actually when going to the local gamestop to trade in rainbow 6 and put some money down on uncharted. They took down the posters front advertising the 360, and put up a poster for the 399 ps3, as well as a ratchet and clank one, it just didnt seem right up there.
gamestop needs to do more advertising for the ps3. especially now that they stopped giving product replacement plans for the 360.
tell me all games suck on the PS3 no joke I still had 5bucks credit on Assissins Creed and it will be the last time i walk in that store I got my pre-ordered COD4 at bestbuy
THE GAMESTOP CLERK TOLD ME (AND QUOTE) "THE GAME(FORZA 2) IS FRIGGIN AWESOME MAN,DEFINITELY BETTER THAN THAT GRAN TURISMO GAME" I THEN BOUGHT GRAN TURISMO 4 AGAIN
"I then bought Gran Turismo 4 again." -IGNFTW lol...too funny...everytime I go in there they try to sell me something I do not want...around Christmas of last year I went in there and it took me well over 10 minutes to buy one game cause the guy behind the counter wouldn't shut up talking to me about stuff I could care less about...he was still talking to me as I was leaving the store...I thought I was on Boiling Points...lol
Just loser fanboys with their biased opinion. It is changing right now I bet. PS3 is starting to look REALLY GOOD to the general public
Well, it'll start to look really good when they cut its price in half. The general public only thinks a few things are a good deal at $400, and a game console isn't one of them. Even the Wii hasn't hit an attractive price for the gemeral public. The general public isn't going to buy something to play games for $400. It's not attractive compared to the PS2, Wii, or DS/PSP.
Are sold out here too. Must be a pretty hot item. I do love how Patcher changes his mind a ton and yet is thought of as a good source for market info...
When is the new Firmware out?? I thought it was going to be end October. I really want to see what it brings to the table. What it has to offer is a factor in a purchase or not. I have my fingers crossed. My area has the 40 Gigs sitting on the shelves, but I am sure the close Christmas gets, the less I will see them. So I really hope we hear something VERY SOON !!
