Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced a new bundle offer for consumers that will see PlayStation 3 retail for £349.99 with two first-party titles.
is this an industry first? having the consumers pick which games they want bundled in? i know some retailers allow you to get a discount on a console and select a few games, but never heard of Sony, Nintendo, or MS doing this. the more you think about it though, isn't it just like lowering the price of the console? i guess you guarantee 2 game sales. i think i like this deal but i'm still not sure.
Bloodmask is thinking about buying a PS3.
Bloodmask is so diligent in posting PS3 related articles. I'm perplexed.
bloodmask is becoming a sony fanboy
I reckon his momma bought him a PS3 last xmas. :)
Bloodmask is becoming a gamer, the opposite of a fanboy.
At the end its ALL about the points Same as Peg cuz when you thought that maybe just MAYBE they got over their fanboy episode in life you stumble across one of Pegs "happy" messages for example on the report section of his news...and ALL your hope goes to the dumpster >.>
I can tell you that!
Won't hurt the attach rate either. What's left for 360 enthusiasts to knock on? Wait I see it now 'The attach rate doesn't matter because they give 2 games away w/ the system'
finally seeing straight cause hes been posting ps3 news positive news left and right lately, good you cleaned off all the blood
Either that or he's subliminally trying to imply that Sony is desperate, giving consumers more choices than before ;) j/k, this is a good option though, let's see if it affects sales and/or if it hits the states. I already have my 20gb so I'm set.
@ deeznuts Are you the same deeznuts I see playing poker on PSN all the time?
Hmm.. thats a pretty good deal seeing as most people will pick up a couple of titles with their machine anyway.. I really like the fact that people can choose the titles from such a good list, that's what makes it a good deal. I don't like the way the 360 Mavel game is showing so many sales despite the fact its utterly rubbish - that 360 deal gives you a turd (albeit with the excellent Forza 2 as a consolation) !
As long as they don't go and say SELECT first party games. Here's hoping they bring it stateside or just elsewhere. So what's the model they are selling with it? the 40gb?
ya Im betting tits the 40 gigger great deal tho for 350 a ps3 rocks throw a couple free games with peripherals like the warhawk bluetooth mike and the singstar mic and it cant be touched.
How exactly does one "bet tits". Sounds shady...
meant bet its lol but tits up to the competition ;)
Nice games and even a couple (Warhawk and Singstar) with accessories! That should push a few more out the door. Wonder if they will go world wide with this deal and ,like Darkiewonder pondered above me (does that sound strange?), what SKU it is for.
WOW! Er not!!! :-/ i got a 60GB PS3 + 3 top games a few months back for £349.99. don't think its the 60GB PS3 this one???
SONY Came out of 2007 and into 2008 to KICKA$$ and take names!!! lol! Can you say return of the KING!? I'm Loving every minutes of it !!!
Yeah, starting 2008 with *ANOTHER* price cut. Price cuts are meant to stimulate demand. Ergo, demand is low.
wAGESLAVE you are jealous!!! No demand huh? That why the PS3 at 400$ has outsold the 360 since OCTOBER! YOUR GAY!! GET OUT SORE LOSER!!! YOU ARE GOING TO GET PWNED FOR SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH LONGER! GET USED TO IT BABY BOY!
So basically you are paying the same amount of money you could have paid pre xmas for the 60GB version and 2 games.
Unless the currency convertor I just used is wrong, 349.99 British pounds is just under $700 U.S. That seems a bit high for our friends across the ocean. -Death
685.31428 US Dollars So yeah where's there a deal in that? Although games in general are more expensive in other countries....
yeah we pay quite a lot for everything over here in the UK, but then again we earn quite a bit of money here too.. eg, I'm in the Construction trade and pay my guys £21 UK pounds per hour, that would be around $40 per hour. My friends who are heating engineers are on around £90 per hour ($180)
This is like far the best bundle I have seen.
Sounds nice but I think making the list of games public list in bold red should be a priority. Just saying 1st party games confuses people because not everyone knows what games are 1st party. When you give the full list to choose from it excites people more. I want this, wait I want this, no this. I can't decide. ^.~
