First and second-party developers from Sony are excited about the Playstation 3 Slim and the new price point.
this will shut activision the f*ck up :)
They will still complain about it not being cheaper.
Doubt it.Activision complained about the PS3 price but they raised their prices on their games like DJ Hero 150$ Guitar Hero 5 set 200$ Guitar Hero Van Halen 100$ Cod Modern Warfare 2 55Pound in England Tony Hawk Ride 110$
Yah, but now i think we should start telling acti to lower prices. look at that over 100 dollars for a game board that im sure will get outdated next year with a new one.
Never bought anything from those clowns , Still won't buy nothing from those clowns
Developers are happy Sony is stepping up their game when they have all been hurt by the economic crisis. A 299 will mean explosive PS3 sales, they all know this. Meanwhile, developers continue to question MSs failed tactics and its absolutely horrid strat in the gaming business so far. Developers are wondering when MS is packing their bags and going home. All developers except Valve that is. Bunch of no good xbots they are.
No mentions of third party?
This will really really shut the douche Kotick up about lowering the price.
ermmm all of those studios *suckerpunch,Jaffe,Insomaniac, MediaMolecule * are first or second party sony studios/devs. They will always develop for ps3 with or without price cut, so what's so exciting?
more hardware sales = more software sales for the developers.
DUH.Your very smart N4PS3G. Also, if you remember the hypocritical douche Kotick who threatened Sony to drop the price or they will drop support, but he raises game prices himself. Yeah, now that Sony has lowered yhe price, we shall see.
You guys sound very bitter about the pricecuts and slim, ya?
They are just excited. And they should be more than the average fanboy. Why? Because they're going to actually REAP the benefits of the PS3's being sold. Bigger install base = higher software sales. And hopefully, all the new PS3 owners will pick up the best previous games from these guys. Resistance 2, LBP, Ratchet & Clank, etc. etc.
can't you get banned for making cloned accounts of other users?
LOL. I can see butthurtery through the monitor today. Price drop is good for everyone, hurts no one except corporate tools.
Developers are the ONLY reason I even care about the PS3 getting a price cut. I dont own Sony stocks nor I enjoy when another guy buy a console, and much less I'm interested in coming here just to rub sales figures on 360 owners faces. However, I want more developers to feel the NEED to develop for the PS3, to develop High QUALITY games, sub standard ports should be a thing of the past because now the PS3 userbase is not the lesser one. I want those third party developers to push the PS3 and not content themselves with providing a roughly comparable version, "good enough" for PS3 owners because they are just worried about the console with the bigger userbase.
Because of this, Mass Effect 2 will come to PS3. I don't have a doubt in my mind. EA won't ignore Sony's ever-growing audience after the price drop. Id love to see Splinter Cell: Conviction follow suit, but I doubt M$ is dumb enough ta let that go.
No I'm not a clone of Sarcasm. I am him. Yes I know I know, "I'm a fanboy with multiple accounts" But this is actually the only other account I've created. What bothers me is that I didn't deserve to get banned to the open zone especially with guys like Foxgod running around.
Huh? WTF? Isn't everybody? How is this news? :)
Good enough is not good enough for PS fans. As a PS fan and a gamer i only want the best. I want my money spent to be worth it.
nah.. kotick's gonna come outta his closet and tell the media that his aggressive stance towards the Playstation brand caused Sony to cut the price down to $299, cuz well we all know how much an a$$ kotick is.
Ultimolu nice wakka reference at the end there :)
This has to be exciting news for anyone who has any interest in the gaming industry why because it will increase the market sales as a whole. hence, it will help even MS in the long run (developers would increase their budget to produce better quality games) because games will be introduce to wider users and this would increase the interest in all consoles. i am really happy and everyone should be happy including MS fan boys
ah sarcasmic.. not a good thing to say
lol, sorry i was speaking to Wakka_ there's another Wakka on here. same avatar, user bio. the User Database can't be found anymore unless i'm not looking or bothering to
-I prefer my 360, but I agree with you guys. This is good for everybody and I'm happy Sony made this move.-
the ps3 slim is being sold on the 24th of this month
So, Are they saying that the game developers didn't know about this ahead of everybody else?
I'll be enjoying SCC, Mass Effect 2, and Gears 3 on my PS3. Now that the PS3 is taking off third party exclusives for the 360 will become a thing of the past. I shall welcome all the new PS3 exclusives.
PS3s selling a lot more is only good for us. It means more exclusives and more support.
Finally someone who gets it. I like the one who keeps saying "I thought PS3 owners don't care about sales." But it's not about the sales, it's about knowing that if Sony starts making profit, they're not going to hesitate to fund new exclusive games and updates and things like that. Good for Sony, Good for the gamers. Win/Win situation here.
Actifu**k my a$$
For real. :) PS3 will beat 360 easy.
The xbox 360 is over 30 mil right now and it has proven to be the one to beat. not everyone are going to leave there buddy behind to get a PS3.Just face it , there are 3 system's this gen that will co exist with each other.
When the 3FixMe can beat the Wii or PS2, we'll talk.
I think everyone is happy. It's arguably the best piece of multimedia ever created, and now it's at a bargain price.
Are you liking these articles chat boxes ? ;-P !!! Nothing can save the brokebox60 + Natal !!! ;-D!! Enjoy the tidal waves off positive feedback + as you chatboxes like to mention SALES!! ;-D !!!!
2nd party devs? The story would've been more exciting if 3rd party devs were warm and fuzzy about the whole thing...
Are the only one's who aint Excited They are to Busy Crying
It has begun. Time to reap the benefits my fellow ps3 owners. Well not really we've been reaping the benefits since day 1.
It's all about Sony and PS3 from now own. Remeber PS1 and PS2 didn't really take off until their 3rd/4th years so PS3 is just in time to burst out. Perhaps Sony will meet their expectations of 100 million units sold.
r u sir Ken?
Since i have been back from my 5 days off this site i have seen a few people write like me(i don't mind tho)??? Very Strange. I only have this name. I play by the n4g.com rules!!! ;-D Maybe i have a Fan club i don't know of!!! ;-D
No longer will they be restricted by the inherent limitations of the Xbox 360's hardware since they can focus much more on the PS3 now after beta testing on the 360 and after the PS3 takes off in sales. =)
Now will Kotick and Activision shut up! Or does he want the prices to go even lower?
Nah, now he'll probably think it's cause of his statement the price dropped.
I will get one when God of War come out. If Tekken turns out great i will get one then.The Slim do look good though
owe it to them selves to buy PS3 exclusives because they are the best this gen. I must say this gen has been the best in terms of Sony first and 2nd part offerings sofar.
The 360 is more powerful you don't believe me then google and youll find more searches than ps3 is more powerful.Plus Microsoft said upcoming exclusives surpass any game out there on the ps3. Even Carmack said 360 is more powerful.
Yep developers are so excited about the 360 they heard about Bioware saying Mass Effect2 demo is overheating the 360 so they started working on it as a heater.
they should do a cash for clunkers at gamestop where u trade in an xbox 360 and u get a PS3 for cheaper :P
XD Bubbles for you. :)
time to take over as King once more Sony?
all these good ps3 news took your good sense of humor away????? ...wow xbox has more exclusives coming? when????? anyways i support pure pwnage24... why didn't someone think of this before ?? :D
I am so glad that Activision got dirt kicked in their face, for their threatening the other day.
Maybe with the lower price, PS3 exclusives will start selling as much as 360 exclusives. *had to go there* /runs to hide
As the famous fozzie bear would say $299.00 PS3 cross the board "wakka wakka"
I bet they do now more ps3s in the living rooms and bedrooms more games will be bought and more money for them beatch. PS: before the next big lets call it war (Stupid ino) Natal does not no DOES NOT!!! have 2 balls on the playstation motion conroller as it is massively accurate.
