I don't care about the Wii, I'm only interested in the PS3 and Xbox 360.
I have an Xbox 360 20gb. I want a PS3 because of the Blu-Ray, Linux/emulator and games: Ninja Gaiden Sigma/2, Kill Zone 2, Heavenly Sword etc.
Now most people had seen the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 trailer, and they are hyped up like crazy to get one. Most people are already selling their games just to get a ps3.
The problem is, we can't afford a PS3! I know I can afford it, but I really can't pay 299 pounds for a console with less feature. Better yet I really need the backwards compatible feature because I seriously missed out lots of great PS2 titles such as God of War, Tekken, Devil May Cry, Rachet and Clank etc.
Anyway, I am tied right now, I need a new laptop and a ps3. Laptops are insanely EXPENSIVE, I'm waiting for a PS3 price drop, but have no idea when Sony will reduce the price. I can make a sacrifice and get a laptop and then finally start my Flash movie project (continue to download sweet movies:P) or get a ps3 and play awesome games and watch blu-ray movies (Iron Man HD:()
My point for this blog.
If you own a 360, SELL IT NOW! And use the cash you got for it and save it up to get a PS3.
Seriously, the 360 is bloody cheap ("cheap consoles, free games"), I checked Amazon.co.uk and 160gb version only COST 160 pounds!!! Whereas I paid 230 pounds for 20gb version, better yet, my bank charged me for overdraft 30 pound.
PS3 cost 289 in Amazon.co.uk, if you buy it now, you'll have no worries in getting another 360 later in the future.
"What about my saves?" Get a Datel Xbox 360 External 4GB Hard Drive, that mini hdd with 4gb capacity. Get a used one. (cost 25 pound at Cex shop).
Back up all your saves, wrap up and cleanse your 360. Sell it. Make sure you get above 80+ dollars/pounds for it. Save up your money and use it for the PS3!
Later in a few months, you can just simply get a 360.
The thing is, Microsoft are so GREEDY, to me the sales for 360 is selling really really good, to the point that the price is damn cheaper than the Wii. (Yet they are not satisfied).
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is driving me crazy. The problem is Team Ninja shouldn't have showed the trailer for Sigma 2, cuz this is making me crave for a PS3 even more. I just thought of this crazy idea now, and I'll do it.
The thing is, Sony won't reduce the price:
Sony will not reduce the price of PS3 for a long time. <br> <br> The cost of allowing all current PSN users is raising and needs to be sorted out, so Sony announced the bandwidth download charging. <br> <br>
If Sony reduce the price of the PS3 now, they know the sales will sky
rocket up!!! Thus meaning more users will join PSN, making the recent
bill even higher. So Sony wants to sort this bill out before they
announce a price drop. <br> <br> The same goes to the new SKU in
development, they said something about the new SKU will be less costly
to be made. Perhaps when they finish building this new kit, they will
annouce a price drop. <br> <br>
If you are crazy to get a PS3 for a long time, I think the wait is over...
But let's wait for Tuesday for what ever news Sony will bring us, if it has nothing to do with price cut, I believe it is time to proceed.
