I'm not surprised at all. PS3 has been all about the hardware and the blueray crap. It'll take a year at least before something interesting comes along gamewise. Not to mention that the insane price would have fallen then.

From the oxford launch party;

Sony had one final trick up its sleeve.

Just minutes before the tills were due to start ringing, a Sony representative made the shock announcement that everybody registered in the queue would receive a free Bravia 46" plasma HDTV, something which took some time to sink in with the gobsmacked crowd.


Look, now they're practicly PAYING people to buy the console. Good stuff!

Good to see that people here have seen the truth - there's no need to fight over consoles... Just wait awhile and you can buy it without fighting if you want it. Of course Sony's unique tactic to cripple euro-version and sell it with same price helps a lot. "Be the last and pay more for less" - what a great way to promote their products! There has been enough time to see what a bubble whole PS3 is, even those who could not see it beforehand have had plenty of time to think things over.
Random ramblings and furious feminine novels per versatility.

Hahaha. At the Virgin store I went to yesterday, he actually said "well I think the key buying point is the blueray disc player".



I cant beleive theyre marketing it like this.. it's sad. Sony really are going to lose.

I've seen homeless people fighting over half a cookie. i've seen a 5-year-old ignored by his older sister and her friends when all he wanted to do was fit in. I've seen hundreds of guilt-trip infomercials about kids in ethiopia with no food or parents.

But that... that was the saddest thing I've ever seen.

I'd buy it as a blu-ray player, considering standalone ones costs about $400 more.

I'd personally buy a HDDVD player, or at least wait until its evident which format rules over.

Well, I really like movies, and I like to play games too, so by getting an Xbox 360 and a PS3 I can both play games and watch hi-def movies. Win-win.

Unfortunately PS3 is looking like a sinking ship lately.

Dual format burner for your PC when the price comes down. :p
