"With the discovered filings of a 250GB PS3, and recent rumblings of a Gran Turismo 5 250GB bundle, the chances of these bundles getting announced at TGS is very likely." If GT5 250GB happens and FFXIII slim bundle in December then I guess it's time for MS to give up the battle in Japan.
Ye if these bundles hit Japan, boy oh boy.. MS need to plan something HUGE to even have a chance at the Japan market.
i have an original 60gb PS3, but i would get a slim if bundled with Uncharted 2, which seems highly likely since there was an Uncharted bundle before.
GT5 doesn't sells that great in Japan, in Europe it's where it really shines. Japan's not that big anyway, that's why it'll not affect MS that much to lose it entirely but Europe? That's a huge continent/market and with GT releasing this year(?) Sony could cause mayor damage to MS.
I think they should consider theese bundles, as they are too many: - Slim & Gran Turismo 5 - Slim & Uncharted 2 - Slim & Modern Warfare 2 - Slim & Tekken 6 - Slim & God of War III - Slim & Assassins Creed II - Slim & Heavy Rain - Slim & Fifa 10 - Slim & RaC: A Crack in Time
j/k man im jus usually the one makin the funny typos lol ff13 slim bundle will destroy Japan and a gt5 bundle will own Europe and North america imo... Foreza3 is good n all but GT is such a huge name not to mention something we all grew up with. n if i had the money id buy a 250gig uncharted 2 bundle in a heartbeat but wife kids bills means we're gonna b a one ps3 house for a while sigh.
the ps3 will be in front of the 360 by 8 million.....
Sony's preparing for war. :o
I would like to see a bundle with 250 Gig custom carbon fiber PS3 Steering Wheel and Petals(G25 or Driving Force GT) Gran Turismo 5 Blu-ray Racing/Automotive movie (maybe Bullitt or American Graffiti) A code for the ModNationRacers Beta. Probably be pricey, but totally worth it.
i'm waiting for a good bundle to pick one up
What the hell was Sony thinking on that one?
if they came out with a Last Guardian special edition... oh my
@1.3 "GT5 doesn't sells that great in Japan" Gran Turismo has sold over 1 million copies in Japan since the original. And I mean 1 million+ per iteration, not 1 million combined franchise total.
If they kept the price competitive then they could have a real winner on their hands, especially with GT5
I bet it goes for $399.00 with a game.
That it would go for 350 Euros which is a darned good deal! So I'm thinking maybe a $350 bundle? Although that sounds too good to be true so a $399 version is more realistic.
...My Bundle of JOY!!! ;-P (That Main Photo looks SEXY!!!) ;-P
But the slims are growing on me. im going to end up getting a slim. my 250gig from november 06 is still running strong but i wanna ease the load...ESPECIALLY with all the exclusives coming out. PLAY BEYOND (broken hardware w/nogames)
Pure Epic. ;)
I think $350 for a 250GB PS3 Slim and a game is about right. Hard drives are very cheap nowadays.
a headset in there "My good chaps..."?
Ya, a bundled headset sounds great. We need people to talk to on the PSN when you're going solo in Call Of Duty! lol
3rd or Last any way you look at it its still the same nothing changes. Its a shame for once it stood tall as a mountain and today that empire is under my foot.
Man, it just kills you to know that the 360 has no more advantages over the PS3. It must hurt knowing that you have more bubbles, than the 360 has quality exclusive games. ouch
user 1 bubble...and talk sh!t. lmafao!
Agree to the above put a dam wired head set in the box atleast to send to people you have an online community Next FF Bundle Japan= Xbox dead if you dont consider it dead already GT Bundle Europe= That will kill competition UnCharted Bundle= US Eh it will do ok wont dominate
and sony will need those bundles now more then ever, cause once natal is released sony will need another price cut/ re-design/ and re-branding.. lmfao what micro has done to mighty sony this gen.. imagine the next if sony makes it that is. the 360 is already successful it makes money, now the ps3 is a whole other story. edit.... take as long of a break you want tony.....
GIVE ME A BREAK.
Quit with the natal talk. Sony is doing great from now on. I could care less about natal right now.
http://n4g.com/PopUpPages/C... This link is for people like air1. Click it so he can get off N4G, go to school, earn an education, and come back to know the difference between the superior PS3 and the laughable 360.
But M$ has never won a console war, so you are the odd one out, so you fail. simple as. Natal needs another price cut/ re-design/ and re-branding It will obviously be overpriced. WTH!!! How long is that POS? A metre? It should be called FAILTAL instead. ( because SONY has already patented using objects with a camera ) BTW NATAL will be rushed to the market, just like the betabox so start saving your pennies and cents now ;) Anyone who has played the Wii's sport games...the ones where you have to peddle the controller repeatedly up and down in very quick succcesions will know FAILTAL will be a FLOP ;)
LMAO.. Ya right Natal lol... It's just gonna be another one of M$es failed product... Even if it's successful (commercially cause frankly, gaming implementation look crap without a physical controller), then too, Sony will counter it with it's own controller... And now that Sony is marketing it's @ss off, expect a tough competition... Also, Sony's controller coming out earlier has it's own advantage... This is it bots.. Just waiting till GT5 and FF13 land... As of now, that 7 million lead has been cut into around 6.5 by the absolute first week pwnage... Things get even worse when those 2 big hitters land in respective continents... Japan is a dead market for the 360..FACT. lol selling 10000-15000 consoles per month is absolute humiliation... when the opposition sells more than a 100000.. Even Europe is nearly won by Sony... Same number of consoles sold but 360 has a head start so pathetic sales for the 360 again... NA is the only saving grace... So even if PS3 sells on par with the 360 in NA, it's outselling it worldwide.... Sorry bots, but by the end of this year, that lead is gonna shrink real fast...
Air you just hate Sony and that's fine but you can't say sh!t about the ps3 when your just a MS lacky. The 360 is done and you know it ms will release the phagtal and nothing will happen just a collective meh. And of course they will release another gimped console just to be the first and to exclaim they beat Sony which isn't gonna happen and that's why your pissy with Sony.
"lmfao what micro has done to mighty sony this gen.. imagine the next if sony makes it that is. the 360 is already successful it makes money, now the ps3 is a whole other story." Ummmmm....? What exactly has MS done to Sony? From what I can see Sony are now doing what they did with the PS1 and the PS2 and that's bringing quality exclusive titles one after the other just like in the PS1 & PS2 days, they even use to bundle their exclusive games with the PS1 and PS2 so you basically just owned yourself. and the PS3 not making Sony money? are you dumb or what because the PS3 has been out selling the 360 since October 2007 here's proof: Look at the blue line from October 2007 - http://www.google.com/trend... Now look at the blue line throughout the whole of 2008 - http://www.google.com/trend... look at the blue line now in 2009 - http://www.google.com/trend... The PS3 has been selling better then the 360 even at a higher price point but the reason it never caught up to the 30 million mark like the 360 was because of the 1 year head start the 360 has on the PS3, but all that is now changing as you can see in the 2009 sales chart. You sound really insecure air1 what's the matter? loosing your faith in MS.
Uncharted 2 (21/20) + Slim Killzone 2 (9/10) + Slim LittleBigPlanet (9.5/10) + Slim MGS4 (9.8/10) + Slim With bundles like these, you'd be retarded not to buy one.
and a HD Cable. ( it is a high-definition console after all :)
this gen isnt over aquarius and at the moment as in TODAY the very second that you read this the ps3 is 3rd. yup , 3rd but i know your logic only works if its used for the ps3 right?! all you sony groupies look so lame. bu bu but it should be called failtail, "sony had it patented already they did it last gen" lol yea sony tried the motion control and guess what unlike nintendo at the moment, sony failed and now they are trying a last minute re birth of the eyetoy thing (card simulator)thats all its known for lol.. poor sony trying to revive the eyetoy again just to say hey, we have that too i know we failed but can we get another shot? i mean after all the talk natal has going for it why wouldnt sony try to bring it back right?!
"this gen isnt over aquarius" First of all, you can't be referring to a Wii or PS3 with that statement. "they are trying a last minute re birth of the eyetoy thing" If I re-call correctly SONY has been working at motion for 10 years now and they have learnt from their mistakes. I suppose you didn't see this. Very,very accurate for a prototype unlike the betabox. http://www.youtube.com/watc... >>>>7.30 idiot <WELL BAM THERE IT IS M$ only just bought out that company a year ago so they don't know sh!t. "lol yea sony tried the motion control and guess what unlike nintendo at the moment, sony failed" Yeah EYEPLAY WiiPLAY SONY failed alright sarc/
"lol yea sony tried the motion control and guess what unlike nintendo at the moment, sony failed and now they are trying a last minute re birth of the eyetoy thing (card simulator)thats all its known for lol" Sony's motion sensing technology is COMPLETELY different to Nintendo's why do you think Sony now has a true 1:1 motion control it's because of research and by the way Sony have been working on the controller for 10+ years. Another thing is how did it fail when Sony never released any motion controls in the first place? You have to actually release a product for it to fail and if you're saying their research failed and they tried again then you are the most retarded person on this site (tops PP), what do you think the word 'research' means. Natal with it's laggy response time will fail just like the 360.
Sony cut the price due to demand not because of MS and it's amazing how you completely forget about what happened in 2008 when Sony were outselling the 360 which forced MS to cut the price, and didn't MS say the 360 wont be getting a price cut for a very long time?...Uh Oh wait! MS cut the price right after Sony cut theirs knowing that Sony will win over the consumers with a price cut, Slim and the exclusive games to back them up. This proves that the 360's price cut was a desperate move because who in the world would cut the price of their console knowing that the their console has no games to offer? You need games to offer otherwise the price cut is pointless hence why the 360 price cut made no effect in the market. No would want to buy a console that's inferior to begin with, has less features than the competition and on top of that has no games to offer at all. The fact that MS cut the price while having no games planned for the rest of this year and none for for the next just proves the 360's price cut was a desperate move all together. Sony cut the price due to high demand. MS cut the price due to their desperation and the loss of the consumers interest in their console.
what has ms done to sony you ask? well, lets see. ms forced sony to have not 1 not 2 but 3 price cuts, thats 1 for every year its been out lol.. want to know what made sony's price cut so desperate? just compare the launch ps3 features to today's ps3 features. if sony was ready for every price cut its had they wouldnt have to gimp the system like they did. did micro gimp the 360 for all of its price cuts no, in fact they added to the core system with more memory. no, the ps3 doesnt make money for sony as you can see below the ps3 is on crutches... http://www.dailytech.com/PS... so i guess games like alan wake, conviction, forza 3, halo reach, mass effect 2 etc are not quality games right. like if the 360 has nothing going for it unlike the ps3 launch now that was a drought of games over a year and a half for a good game? (mgs4) it will go back and forth ultimate sony will finish with strong sales this holiday thanks to its rebranding redesign and price cut :) next year will be micros year i really dont think you ppl know what kinda damage halo reach is going to do and natal? ppfff... and you knw im not reaching with halo reach we all know what halo can do... did any of your charts put the ps3 ahead of the 360 in over all sales? nope, the only excuse you have is the "head start" with the success soony had with the ps1 then the huge success they had with the ps2 and all it took was 12 months to kill that noise? lmfao edit................. if any ones motion control has lag its sony's did you forget about that post already ultimate? the one with that kid that had oddly sized things in his hands in the screen and how he just couldnt make contact with the fake looking tennis ball even though the racket took up about half the screen? lmfao, yea i bet you forgot about that post, how long has sony been working on it you said? lol ultimate didnt the eye toy release on the ps2? or am i mistaken? lmfao sony's waggle is completely different it has 1:1 motion control.. lmfao and what do you think wii motion plus did months ago? but i know sony had it all in the boks 10 years ago.. sony completely ripped off what nintendo is doing micro is trying it too but damn at least they took it a step further. and thats why you here about natal all over the place even on the news cause 1:1 doesnt make sh!t different natal does plain an simple what kinda sales pitch would you have? well, sir... the ps3 motion has 1:1 while the wii can do it too you have to buy an adapter for it and thats about all the difference between the 2 when it comes to motion.lol
If you can't judge the difference between the mistake of a human and the lag of the controller then you have mental problems. Couldn't you see how nervous the guy was you dumb prick. and it's amazing how you don't notice the fact that the tennis racket itself was in perfect sync with his hand and it swayed perfectly with the motion of his hand no matter how fast he swung the racket this further proves it was his mistake and not the controllers. Try again airbot.
Uncharted 2 bundle for sure. GT5 is next. Christmas can't come fast enough.
its lookin gud 4 sony with these bundles they will be dominating in sales if they pick this up a slim ps3 with modern warfare 2 and headset and hdmi would do it perfect 4 them all dat 4 $399 or so wud be perfect add me people on psn: erick21093
i got jealous of the slim's 120gb HDD to my fat's 40gb HDD and just bought a 320gb HDD to upgrade... muahahahaha. but seriously, 40gb is not enough HDD space. I had to delete game data for the first time ever yesterday after getting IL 2 Sturmovik, which only needed 530mb. my point is... 250gb is the way to go with HDD space.
When is TGS? Hopefully they announce a bundle soon before Uncharted 2 drops because I need a new PS3 to play that game. My old one's not being very friendly at the moment.
