A retailer on Sat. price cut the game title Infamous for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 to under $45 in a new game sale.
After the NPDs results i'm surprised the price hasn't come down to $20. Last year MGS4 was dropped to bargain bin price in japan in less than 2 months of release. What's with ps3 owners not buying games. Most spend their free time on n4g only.
The only reason i don't go crazy buying every good game thats out its simply because MOST ppl don't have job security right now. I would rather make sure i can survive than buy games. + I got to save up for Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5. Now if the question is will I get it for sure, I do not know. Its the situation at time that will determine it. Will I eventually get all these games - rest assured I WILL Unfortunately I wasn't blessed with rich parents who just bought me stuff to keep me quite :(
PS3 owners don't have their parents to buy games for them, they have to pay bills and, you know, living.
Plus they have to by thier kids wii and x360 games :)
Easily one of the most negative posts I've read this week. PS3 owners buy plenty of games, but PS3 just have less overall owners. Why would they drop a game to under $20 when it has sold moderately well, and is a nearly AAA title?
In the PS3 section and you obviously don't own the console, only contributing a flamebait post. Unless this game completely bombed, there's no reason to bring it down to $20. And about MGS4 hitting the bargain bin in Japan in two months after its release; well, according to this it was just added to the platinum hits for Japan last month. http://kotaku.com/5225824/m... And not even 2% of PS3 owners spend their free time on this site. I have to say, it's hard to take anything you attempt to contribute into consideration when you're spewing out things like that and 90% of your comments are just trolling.
its so funny, I have a car payment and insurance, along with alot of other bills yet i still buy plenty of games. why because I'm not a stupid consumer who went for the most expensive system to show off to there friends who just don't care. XD
Compare to Uncharted: http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... ...which has sold over 2.4 million copies. Good PS3 games have legs, and keep selling. Infamous is already doing well, and will keep doing so.
If you have a PS3 go buy this game, don't rent it BUY IT.
Lol "A retailer", inFAMOUS is awesome, buy it.
Why the hell don't Sony bundle Infamous and KillZone 2 together that sounds alot better then bundling games nobody likes.
You haven't heard of the MGS4/KZ2 bundle yet, have you
Best Buy has been selling a $400 80GB bundle that includes MGS4 and Killzone 2. That's a great deal, and equal if not better than what you proposed.
@2 I agree it would have been better if they bundled Killzone 2 and InFamous instead of MGS4 since people can pick MGS4 up for $20 - $30, and it would have helped both games sell what they should have sold to begin wih, and it would have introduced two relatively (this is the third Killzone so it's not really new) new games that are be easy to get into (minus difficulty levels). MGS4 has a long history and let's be honest it's not for everyone. Sony should have made a hardcore bundle, an introduction bundle, a New IP bundle, and the casual. Casual = Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank: FTOD + DLC, and Wall E New IP = Uncharted, Resistance, Motorstorm, MS/R2/U2 $10 off coupon Intro. = Killzone 2, InFamous, and some new action movie blu ray Hardc. = MGS4, GT5 Pro., SOCOM Con. w Blu tooth If you're going to make a bundle make it a no duh I need to get this. The MGS4 and Killzone 2 bundle is a good one, but I'm sure PS3's will sell A LOT more if they had these bundles. Now this is making me want to do one for the 360 and Wii (I'll have to blog about it) @2.3 Well thank you, you pretty much crushed my post lol. Everyone even though it's in Europe PS3 is region free so there you go.
Flying off the shelves lol!
but apparently your idiocy and pig-headedness is still in tow. Soda Popzitsky first to comment in a PS3-related article = Total f*cking loser who can't stand the thought of another game console succeeding.
No need to be all emo about it. I bet your mascara was running down your cheeks while you were writing that comment.
Game goes on sale, news at 11.
It cost 32$ here in Poland :-)
I'm pretty sure in Kasachstan it's even cheaper, just ask Borat :)
I love this movie :D
Nice that you have humour, I wanna make clear that I didn't attack your country, it's just that Poland isn't a big market and also isn't as wealthy as USA or western Europe, so it's absolutely normal when the prices are lower overthere.
If you own a PS3, you gotta play this game. I really enjoyed it and it has a terrific story. Gameplay is fun and there's plenty to do to keep you occupied for dozens of hours. Check out my review: http://jleack.blogspot.com/...
Renting it ;)
Ah, another PS3 exclusive that isn't selling. Its getting a structural problem now. Every PS3 exclusive gets a quick pricecut. MGS4 was cut in price after just 4 months on the shelves. The PS3's largest exclusive that is. inFamous gets it after what, 1 to 2 months. LBP, the highest rated PS3 exclusive, 9.5 out of 10, already is cut to 29,95 Euro overhere. Thats pretty sad. PS3's are used for BluRay movies and watching p0rn in the webbrowser. Users don't play games on it. They should have called this game inFerior
Yes, because Sony are cutting the price of these games, not retailers in an effort to attract customers...?
No Life, No Sex, No Brain ... it's TheMART ;-)
Don't even waste your energy. The Mart would even disagree with why the sun dusks and dawns every 10-12 hours or so (depending on where you live). With the current economic sh*t-hole the global business world is in right now, it would make sense that every major retailer would discount goods to attract consumers and raise revenue. But the Mart has never even heard of such a word as "retailer" or "revenue" so let the little Power Ranger/Pokemon freak bask in his ever-evident self ignorance. Apparently, one single retail chain cutting the price of a certain PS3 game is unequivocal proof that game is a failure. Yeah, I'll just be standing over here in the "Ignorance isn't bliss" section.
^^^^ idontcare stalking me, living in a poor mans flat, doesn't know what sex is (sh!tting on her face isn't nice dude), having a poor mans income and... Being the son of the man with the mustache. Sad sad German. Don't you have some gold teeth to pull today, that what you like to do best? I knew Germans are loosers, but you tracking my comments (you got butthurt shortly ago by one of my replies I can see) is becoming really sad. You'd better go sell some games in the gameshop again, thats the perfect job for you, a perfect fit to your IQ. @ NegativeCreep Dude... When MGS4 cut its price last year we weren't in the recession like now. Gears of War didn't got cut in price so fast. Other 360 exclusives didn't. Good selling games don't. PS3's games do get cut in price fast. Thats the difference.
oh no I have to spend less money on good games this is bs Oh man me as a consumer I really am upset I am not paying full price for this game
just get a 20 buck BlockBuster montly game pass...the only way to play SP games...rent the game and keep it for a week or even 2, than you will tired of it like all SP games...and still have at least 2 more weeks to rent games or movies....
The thing about PS3 games is they aren't outdated when they launch so a PS3 game and still be high tech years after launch... let's see Gears 2 was made out of date by Uncharted...
inFAMOUS is amazing. Go buy it if you haven't already done so.
so its prolly just not selling well in usa, but thats to be expected.
