Today Sony announced 8 new bundles. 5 for the PS3 and 3 for the PSP. Click on read more find out which one.
I call them - 'Bundles of JOY'!!!;)
5 Blu Ray movies and a PS3 for 449 euro good price
I think Sony should bring the price down... I predict this to happen June-July 2009. I can sense it.
with the Lunch of KILLZONE2
Oh they will, in due time. Calm before the storm...
price drop - ok my guess is 1-2 weeks before E3 just like they did with the ps2. ON TOPIC: As a Sony supporter (I usually speak w/ my wallet not my tongue) I'm always disppointed by the lack of vision of their bundle packages. EVERY bundle should come with a game AND a movie. Sony trojaned BR inside a PS3, they won the format war, and they forget to include a movie now? It's a distinct advantage and the fact they don't exploit it at every chance is baffling. Include Cars w/ the LBP bundle, Gone in Sixty Seconds w/ the Motorstorm bundle, etc... That way, parents and casual gamers alike can be pleasantly informed of the ps3's capabilities. And include a tutorial. I brought over a friend (casual gamer) to show off its many functions. Lol, he was overwhelmed by the time I made it past the XMB bar.
But i do think that a price cut will come in the beginning of 2009. They will sell alot through the holliday with both good games and as a bluray player, when the boost of the holliday is cooling down they can lower the price.
Some very good bundles there. The LBP and Harry Potter one should be popular ;)
i got word that it will drop when killzone 2 hits,it's not proven yet but its about 80 percent
First micfosith and now phony. These two make me feel overdosed on game consoles. Just give us flexible packages.. Console + 2 any 2 games for xxx. Console + 1 game for yyy. etc.
be a better idea to make a SMALL price cut around the launch of God of War 3.......that will be huge!
After seeing KILLZONE 2 and HEAVY RAIN i think that GOW3-trailer was all in IN-GAME ENGINE. And there was a news that mentioned that GOW3 has graphics like Beowulf.
I hope youre talking about the movie and not the game when you talk about beowulf. I think the god of war trailer was rendered, but i do believe that the final build of gow3 will be equal to that trailer :-) Edit: Thank god, because the game is very meh.
iam talking about the Movie with sexy Angelina ^^
That trailer was rendered but somebody saw the gameplay and said it was VERY close to the teaser.
He said (as well as others) that the game was supposed to be VERY close to the in-game engine. Knowing what the studio did with the other GoW gaming I would not be surprised.
No thanks i've already have a next gen console (xbox360) so i don't need second hand rubbish bundle.
Second hand? You realise what the phrase means right? Not the sharpest tool in the shed are you.
Sony come on make up your minds, nice to see that new stuff is being brought out, by I thought they were going to just try to stick with just one console? As most said price cuts would be nice, but I think sticking with one system should be the first thing on their list. Seems like whenever one comes out another goes out of production, it seems like a cycle is starting to form. :/
Isn't that exactly the point, as one bundle decreases in popularity you release a new one? Regarding one console, I dont believe that was ever the intention, there will probably always be two, with slightly different hardware configurations (HDD size etc), that's called choice. I believe the Wii is the only system which has one unified piece of hardware and vary their bundles with games.
Had forgotten about that for the moment, though has the PS3's popularity overall ever decreased? I mean I know a few friends who won't pick one up until Sony sticks with one. So from my viewpoint and possibly a few others it seems like Sony is sometimes shooting themselves in the foot while to others it seems like they are making quite the deal towards others. I suppose I should be glad that I am at least able to upgrade the HDD size otherwise I'd probably be one PO'd SOB. Yeah the Wii seems to be one that stays within the means of one system, it just seems that from all the stories that float about on here or even just all heresay that you hear around town or on the net. Everyone is talking about the PS3 a lot just as well as the 360, with bundles coming about and such. A few main things I hear about the PS3 are, "Why can't Sony stick with one system?"; "Why is a new one always coming out every few months."
I know I sound like Jack Trenton right now, but its true.
Anyone looking forward too Boku its for xbox360 and i've heard its better than LBP thats what all the sites are saying.
I really feel sorry for your friends.. if you have any... even your imaginary ones :\
FOTY (flop of the year award) including haze
I dont even think MS is looking forward to it.
Why NFS Undercover and not Resistance 2 ? Some sort of a deal ?
i predict price cut target to be around april. right after the end of the fiscal year march 31st. as well as tax return time. before hand if they are willing to take a slight loss for increased sales during killzone 2 and/or make announcement during CES 2009. later if they would rather wait for E3. I think aside from the holidays. sony has seen positive responses from customers and the press when they release as announced during events. that was one of their successes with the video store. it was live when they said, not only did it work, but they actually kept a date. they know this formula is positive for sony.
works for all companies......we do not particularly care for delays....and want products when they are said they will be released. It is okay for a company to have a target date, but they should keep it in house until they are sure that the product is ready to be released....especially when you have those that schedule days off from work expecting to have the day to spend with that product.
M$ can try to copy but they will fail every time sony owns 08 like they will in 09
Sony is going into overkill mode!
I don't see a price cut anytime this holiday. If they're cutting manufacturing costs, then they're adding more 'value' in games and hard drive space to maintain the price point. Good business for them I suppose, but at least we're getting some good games in the meantime.
