Wow. Not good for Sony.

If Europe is going similarly right now then Sony is in big trouble and needs to drop the price like yesterday.

Well, the prices in Austrailia and Europe are borderline criminal. With the gimped B/C and the way higher price, I don't blame them for telling Sony to shove it.

That doesn't change the fact that I still love my non-gimped, more reasonabily priced PS3 though. smile

You're right.  $599 is a steal.

I feel torn about this news. On the one hand, I kind of want the PS3 to sell poorly because I hate a $500-600 console, but I really (will eventually) want a PS3, so I want a pricedrop (or drops) sooner rather than later. On the other hand, if the PS3 DOES fail enough for them to rush into dropping the price, it's likely to cost them the awesome developer support that makes me want the PS3 in the first place.

Bah, all of these damn systems are overpriced. Even my beloved DS should be down to $99 by now (that one ain't happening soon).

Gotta love the babel fish translation.

Sony Computer Entertainment organized as envisaged a launching at midnight of PlayStation 3 on a boat which accosted with the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, with a thousand of machines available to the sale. The event unfortunately attracted only one score of people on the quay, and 4 to 5 people maximum on the other event organized in parallel in Fnac of the Élysées Fields in Paris. One will note the unexpected presence and rather amusing of Microsoft come him also with his boat Xbox 360!

Wait the 360 is a boat?! $400 doesn't sound quite so bad! Can I waterski behind my 360?

Yep, cause $400 is such a bargain for a non-HD drive/no wireless internet/pay $50 a year for multiplayer console! Better get 2! Oh wait....you already did that. Nevermind!

Hetz, you should be pissed.  Compared to the 100 people who bought a PS3 in England, you got fucked:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6474045.stm

"At the London launch everyone who bought a PS3 also received a free 46-inch HD television and a taxi home.

In total, the giveaway amounted to £250,000 worth of televisons to more than 100 gamers."


I guess they must've been anticipating a bad launch given that they'd just be throwing away more money if it'd be actually popular.  (Or, more likely, they were just going to give away TVs to the first 100 customers - and only got 100.)

No my dig was at someone buying two of a $400 console that lacked all of what I listed, since you said the $600 PS3 was such a horrible deal. But hey, don't feel bad....you could have purchased them for $479! What a great bargain that will be!!!

Are you going to get one of those as well?

Thanks to JD on QT3 for this translation:
Quote
Midnight launch at a bigger chain in Stuttgart/Germany: about 25 people had lined up prior store opening - it's been 100 when the Xbox 360 launched. (Side note: the marketing efforts the chain had done for the PS3 launch were higher compared to the release of its competitor.) 35 out of 100 available PS3s and 77 games sold. Store manager blames bad weather and post-Christmas release, also noted that 360s sold above average today.

We'll just have to wait and see how this first month of sales goes.  Perhaps our European friends just aren't hip to staying up late.  

Oh, here is a video of the PS2 launch in Paris in 2001.   icon_eek  I like the comment that says, "This has to be the worst vid of Dead Rising I've ever seen."   icon_lol

Actually, considering that in Australia the PS3 costs like US$950, the $599 that he paid for it is a steal. And it has full hardware BC.

No because I have no need for the larger hard drive so I don't see the value in it.  I think the PS3 would be doing alot better if it came with just a DVD drive and cost $399.  I know I would have bought one by now if I could find it.

I don't dispute that for what you get $599 is a good price on the PS3.  Unfortunately I have absolutely zero need/desire for Blu Ray or a larger hard drive than 20GB on a game console.  It appears that alot of people feel the same way.

I do think Microsoft should have WiFi in the premium 360, although I would never use it myself.  The WiFi components are dirt cheap and I don't really think it would be a great hardship on them to include it at $399.

well,here in the UK,the papers(damn them)have just been reporting on how we are paying £125 extra than americans and given the fact that the backwards compatibility has been lowered somewhat..and also it works out that we are paying £10 extra for the games as well

they havent sold out anyway,shops are reporting that if you didnt preorder a ps3,you can still go down to the shop and purchase one over the counter

i am still gonna wait a while









and whats with the crab Hetz?...are you trying to tell us something personal that we dont wanna know?

You can attack Sony's weak spot for massive damage.

Unfortunately I have absolutely zero need/desire for Blu Ray

I'm sure there are some developers who would disagree with you on that.
Remember Sony's said again and again Blu-ray was included for GAMES, the fact that it lets you play HD movies is just an added bonus.

My biggest gripe about the 360 was them NOT including HD-DVD.

Oh no! I've been exposed....   paranoid

I might as well come clean. I am: Hetz, Kobra, Calvin, U2KTheGreatest, Brendan, Lord Ebonstone, ATB, Arclight and Crowley.

Here let me dig up some pictures for you as proof....I know I have some good ones somewhere around here....

Well of course Sony says that.  They also say no-one can find PS3s on shelves in North America.

So you'd be interested in a $599 360 with HD-DVD then?

I wouldn't, cause MS said that the HD-DVD wouldn't be used for games. Why would I want a dying format for movies that won't be used for games?

Here is another pic from the "failed" Europe launch!
