SCEE's president Andrew House has promised there will be no stock shortages for PS3 Slim, and that the transition from the old to the new model will be seamless.
omg, just like the early wii days ^___^ http://i27.tinypic.com/8ygc...
3 ps3? really? that's great...
With this new price drop, my kids can have one each!
i hope that 2006 disaster doesnt return cause if sony had enough PS3s at that time the ps3 would have been very close to the xbox by the moment but oh well ( if you didnt make mistakes you wont improve ) and improving is the best sony does look bravia HD and sound theaters and bluray ( crap they even managed to get 100 GB 200 GB on a disc ) everything sony makes is future proof believe me except the walkman but who cares its not a flaw but apple's ipod is so gimmick and i hate it and for the ps3 slim i not getting it i love to game on my 60 GB model ( cause its the best model )
More than likely, they're able to make this promise because they've manufactured a ton already in order to meet manufacturing production goals, which helped in the long run to get the price of the PS3 lower in cost and thereby lower in price. Manufacturers are like most salespeople, if you make 10k in one month instead of 1k, they'll give you a saving on each item made.
Guys ignore euchreprof. He frequents the PS forums and the only thing he is really good at is being a habitual liar.
and he gives me the creeps... beware people!
It's tough to decide which of you two is lying... The one with a ton of bubbles or the one with... two. Ok, Assassin, you win.
In Denmark the Slim is set to debut at 2799 kr. = $520. I'm might just wait a week or two for the better deals. Unlike the US where it just plain and simple $299. But It's all good. I sold my launch PS3 3 weeks ago for $640 (all the Slim rumors made me do it). Looks like I'm picking up the Slim and 2 games at the same price.
masterg: only Coolshop.dk has a Danish price at the moment, and the fat ps3 is even cheaper around. After September 1st, I guess the price will drop to about DKK 2500,- (still $480) or even lower. Many Danes buy the PS3 on amazon.co.uk (even though they officially don't sell to Denmark, they still do). Damn taxes :(
You may have pre-ordered three PS3s, or not, but here's a video demonstrating how you would feel once you have three PS3s. http://www.youtube.com/watc... @sonic989 Sony's Walkman MP3/4 players have the BEST sound quality out of all the MP3/4 players in the market. In fact, most MP3/4 players have better sound quality than iPods.
I cant wait to see stupid people saying "I have 3 PS3 Slims..." on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watc... During the year of launch, i think.
However they should do something about current fat shortage.
Isn't that their goal...to phase out the fat completely? Especially if the slim is cheaper to manufacture, there's no sense for them to pump out the fat model's which retail for the same price as the slim.
Um...why would they put more fat models on the market when they're trying to get rid of them? Shortage (and soon-to-be extinction) of the fat PS3 is the whole idea of what they're going for. Edit: lol Guess Harry beat me down the path of logic there.
That won't be hard, as no one will still buy a doormat @ 299 bucks.
what a pathetic troll
Sales of the PS3 Slim will speak for them selves, you will see. $299 for a state of the art Console & Top of the range Blu-ray player rolled into one, the Slims a steal.
Bu bu bu we don't troll PS3 aritcelzzz /s
Thy Silly Little BoT P.S Put me Down for 5 PS3 Slims
@ The Mart That's not what the retailers are telling us. Face it, the ps3 slim will own while you still regret your poor choice of a console (3fixMe). I see alot of bots are still butt hurt from the weeks onslaught lol.
I seem to recall mart saying he owns a ps3 himself!!..and that was when the ps3 was 399$!!...u just owned urself!
F*ck you Mart. Maybe you should use the Flop60 as a doormat instead. Sell your PS3 already.
You're all class juuken.
u will be in hell fire for ever!!! it doesnt matter if u believe in hell or not, u will just be in it having endless of torture and suffering!
And you're a closet 360 fanboy. So you would excuse an asshole like Mart? Hey, no kidding. 360 butt buddies stick together anyway.
lol juuken and her drama. You need to relax a little.
And you need to mind your business.
relly? thats why pre oders are going through the roof?
last time i checked they are limiting 1 to every customer on amazon.com lol no one wants a $299 ps3 my a**. I would love for the ps3 to outsell the 360 this gen just so you are proven wrong. :)
too bad I already got one that have BC. If it isn't for BC I would have give it away and buy a slim.
Yeah, though I rarely play PS2 games anymore it just seems like too much of a perk to give up.
play a PS2 game for like persona 4 when the game lunched and no other game after that . the ps3 is really going to rock when sony puts it on top gear ( vroom vrom ) by the way hope to see jak 4 on the PS3
man for people who moan about BC just buy a ps2 it will cost u as much as a ps3 back in the days if not cheaper plus pre orders are out of stock at my work i even have people wanting to trade xbox 360s and wiis shocking
I've seen (on numerous accounts) where you can get a pre-owned/used ps2 for $30. So yea, I agree with you.
People need something to complain about! Even if the slim had bc, they would just find something else to complain about. Idiots.
Harry is correct. I mean, they've pulled out a complaint that's been around for more than a year now since there isn't much else to complain about. If it wasn't BC, it would be lack of cross-game chat or video chat on PSN.
The PS3 could have all said features and more, and the next excuse is "Oh the PS3 doesn't do the dishes or vacuum my room, so I'm not buying a PS3. Sony, give me a reason to buy a PS3"
I'm just wondering why we don't see more complaints about the 360 not having Blu-ray or built-in wireless or free online or cheaper HDD options or standard rechargeable batteries in controllers. Don't get me wrong, I understand the value of both systems, but it's surprising how much more news there is about the faults of the PS3 in comparison, especially now that it's at the same price level and offers more in some ways than its direct competitor. People really can't see the beauty in owning both and recognizing both for their strengths? They need to complain about the one that started late and hasn't caught up (but has had a stronger growth rate since their respective releases)? I'd love to see some more articles really aiming to examine the faults and strengths of both rather than attempts to just drag one of them into the mud over and over and over and... did I mention over?
mart u own a ps3 so when u call us ps3 owners u are also calling your self u dumb dutch smoking crack head what brain cell do u really have cause u are as bad as the blond cow that keeps coming in here murder dolls who by the way thinks is u suck it ps3 slim will out sell xbox now 100 million consoles by the end of its time GT5 god of war and lets see what bomb sony throw at TGS microsoft can keep there pedo project pff
Why are you getting so worked up over his comment?
see u always pop up murderdolls to be honest u are as dumb as him really u cant see cause u are a blind troll like him u come in ps3 articles and spill ur mind why cause u are thick u are as much use as a glass nail ur head is that solid u can nut nails in to wood im shocked u dont give mart a BJ when he makes comments on a console he owns u all lead him on anyways what ever happens from the 1st September xbox better come up with something good cause they are losing the console war rapid now
I'm gonna spend the rest of the day trying to figure out what this means... "why cause u are thick u are as much use as a glass nail ur head is that solid u can nut nails in to wood" I really can't take you seriously when you write like that.
if it takes u all day to figure that out then my point is made people dont no that microsoft is up against a console that has been out over 10 years before them and people no they always comeback u think microsoft can win people with exclusive dlc and 3 games halo gears and splinter cell lol sony will have come up with a new ip every 3 months or more
MurderTroll is in a Black Eyeliner Mood Today(you see he's a Goth) That Mean's he's Very Very Cranky,Sad and ButtHurt
"if it takes u all day to figure that out then my point is made." that cracked me up... pure comedy right here... and always in open zone. q:
Thats such a funny pic. How did you even find it?
the marathon run is picking up momentum, 8mil might take a year or 2 to catch up if all goes well. looking pretty good, ps3 on thier feet, home can launch game without leaving home. They put all the pillars together.
"8mil might take a year or 2 to catch up if all goes well." No, just no. 4 mln. a year, than they have to sell 333.333 extra PS3's a month, on top of their current sales, which are already what, 100k a month less then the 360. So actually they have to sell over 400k a month EXTRA to get on par with the 360 after 2 years doing that. Forget it. If they are lucky, they are going to sell on par with the 360 with the PS3 Slim and its new price. But when the 360 gets a new pricecut with the cheapest model to 149 bucks, the situation returns to what it was. People will choose the 360 over the PS3, as the 360 runs 98% of all multiplats the best version, has a library that has close to 700 games while the PS3 just sticks under 400 games etc etc.
MART THE TROLL IS ON DAMEAGE CONROTL lol the 360 is actually pathetic pathetic that the 360 is allready cheaper than the wii yet the wii is outselling it pathetic that they say its a next gen console and it heats up on demos and still run on DVD with a high failer rate pathetic that if they drop the price more it well become the same price of an handheld i mean 150 ??? loooooooooooooooooool 50$ more than a ps2 is MS really that desperate lol 50$ more than a last gen console next thing they'll do is give ppl free 360's
The PS3 will outsell the 360 by July 2010. You see Mart, you're only looking at NPD numbers. We're talking worlwide here no just America. Worldwide sales in Japan and Europe will skyrocket and surpass the 360 even more. PS3 slim should also have a big impact in NA. Combined, PS3 should be able to outsell the 360 in short time WORLDWIDE. Remember America isn't equal to the world.
it can do that world... wide... not just u.s so.. ya 2 years
well i can see people looking to buy a new home buying it. it makes a good door mat. lol
yeh thats one hard promise to keep, what happens if demand is bigger than what is in stock lol (hehe will be funny if it happens) either way i hope the ps3 sells loads it will finally shut up all these hate articles we keep on getting posted
Something tells me that, with the confidence with which he says this, they have it taken care of. That might even be why they put it off for a while (and why we heard of it so long before it was announced). Maybe they were building up a stockpile.
to late, theres already shortages....why, because they stoped selling them. XD rofl.
kango what does that have to do with my post?
A plate to cut meat on for 299 bucks? And after that you can drop the meat on the Fat PS3 aka George Foreman grill. EDIT Hey German tard below. I've been to GamesCom on pressday in the city of Cologne and saw a lot of Germans. They are fat, dumb and are sweaty stinking bastards. Oh yeah and the language sounds like sh!t. Whats up with that? And you couldn't go I guess because you're a sad wanker. Or is the guy in this picture you?
oh, the man without a brain is back!
lol this guy sure got no life butt hurt ??? cus you know that the xbox360 is in deepshit now lol
when they get owned, they talk about something completely out of point!!...cmon now call us all nasim :P...im loving this bot crying!
I know this is the open zone, but racism isnt cool you little f***. Anyone know this guy, beat the living sh*t out of him. Reported.
