Is this a reasonable deal pricing wise?
#2
these have had pre-orders out for ages.
#3
Youve been able to order these from Play for quite some time..
Also, I wouldnt consider that a good deal.

Hello everyone by the way
#4
Yeah, Play.com have had this advertised from last October (or even before) so if it is first come first serve....you might be waiting a bit!

At this price less people will pre-order and will hopefully will make sure you get one due to number of PS3 console will be avaliable in UK as we all know people will buy them and sell on Ebay!!!


A pre-order from them wouldn't hurt as you can sell on ebay if you end up with a spare hehe
#6
As above, this pre order has been around a long time and therefore thousands of people will be ahead of you which guarantees abotu a 99% chance of not getting one from Play for the launch date.
#7
The price is ok, nothing special, but if you want it close to release day forget play.com. They are useless when it comes to pre-ordering consoles.

If the USA is anything to go by, Im sure there wont be many stock shortages over here.

True.

Also, the 20GB version isn't been released in the UK as of yet.
#10
Put my order in for 1, thanks
#11
I know some of the games not so good, but can sell them on ebay as full price as it newly release on launch.

I think Sony will have 4-6 million ps3 stock to split in March with Japan, USA and Europe. Maybe even less cause of the blue-ray drive shortage.

Think how many will come to UK. Maybe safe to make this per-order as a back up. As play.com don't charge until dispatched and you can always cancel anytime.

Err... no.

These'll start to drop in price when Sony realise that they're only going to sell to hard-core gamers at £400+

They may justify the charge by quoting development costs and production costs but so what? The mass market ain't gonna buy it and if the mass market don't, games developers ain't gonna bother developing for it so it'll become about as desirable as... well minidisc, betamax or even PSP with UMD movies:-D
#13
Dont forget that many of the scalpers in the US couldnt sell their PS3s on ebay because there was little to no demand to pay the $2000... AFAIK BBC did a whole story on it.
#14
It's not really a deal is it, especially if you don't want the three games that come with it, which you probably won't.
#15
i just called play.com helpdesk the guy said that PS3 launch in UK has been pushed back to the 3rd part of 2007, the price you see is what you pay even if it comes out £200 cheaper, and they havent updated the PS3 launch dates on the website yet! = BE CAREFUL FOLKS!
banned#16
After play and wii preorders I wouldn't.
#17
so if the price changes you will have to pay the exact price
#18
roadie
so if the price changes you will have to pay the exact price


when you pre- order you pay the full amount, on release if the cosole is say £299 its tough tits, youve already paid and you DONT get the diffrence back, i rang and asked.. see above :thumbsup:
#19
That sounds pretty out of order to me....it's definitly not the usual Play.com policy. I'm guessing if they're taking that stance and the price does drop, they'll be having plenty of complaints and returns.

There won't be a price drop for PS3. It costs 840 dollar to make. Thats £425 in pounds. Its a price early adopter willing to pay. Look at ebay prices going upto £1500 when it was released and sold out with mintues from launch.


GamesIndustry.biz now reports that Sony's advertising campaign for Playstation 3 will begin at the end of March, which probably means that we can forget about a launch at the start of of the same month. Another source states that the probable launch date is March 23, which we have to agree sounds likely, that is if March is the month we will see Playstation 3 in Europe.


Look at the Nintendo Wii, lots of rumours say there was meant to be a price drop on that which it didn't. Its the 1st console to make profit out of box. Judging from it being sold out within mintues from being instock prices won't drop for wii for many months.
#21
I've just returned from a trip to Dubai and Singapore and in both places they had plenty of stock of the 60Gb model for £400.

They were region 2 models as well, which I thought was unusual for the middle and far east markets.

I would have bought one, but I was put off by the limited regional warranty on offer.

A friend in the US tells me that Best Buy have stacks of them on sale for $600, so no shortage there either.

I'd wait and see. There'll be an initial flurry for a week or two then everything will settle down.
#22
This deal has been around for about a year!

Actually Wii kick ass.
Anybody want to swap their PS3 for a Wii give us a shout:whistling:

Thats cause people realise that lauch titles are crap lol. They don't have that Zelda as for Wii. All the PS3 title not released till late 2007 and onwards e.g Final Fantasy XII, Virtua Tennis 3, White Knight, Heavenly Sword, Grand Theft Auto IV, Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, Final Fantasy Versus XIII
#25
Thats when I would ideally need a PS3 hehe

Wii is boring now after finishing Zelda, even tho there was no graphic improvement between the gamecube version. It was smart of nintendo to have low limited suppiles on Zelda twilight for the gamecube and loads on the wii version.

Wanna bet the price won't drop?:p

And that $840 build cost. Where'd you get that figure from? The thing won't cost any more to build than a PS2 if they get the volumes right. Mostly, the higher build costs factor in R&D and the new processor, which they'll have to write off if the thing is a flop anyway and Blu-Ray - which is all a bit left pocket/right pocket to Sony.

Remember when base model dvd players cost hundreds - now you can pick 'em up for less than £20. Remember the £50 Xboxes - and Argos and Microsoft were still making money!

The PS3 is way overpriced and Sony have got their sums wrong. I'll eat me Nunchuck if the price isn't at least half some of the figures being quoted now - and within 12 months

Xbox 360 price haven't drop

The blue-ray drive itself cost more than a ps2

How many year for a dvd player to drop to a £20? How many year for xbox?

The point is Sony won't be dropping prices for PS3 anytime soon.


Refer to USA:
"the company 'iSuppli' shows that there is a reason for the high retail price. It namely costs Sony 840 USD to manufacture the 60GB model of PlayStation 3, which results in a loss of 241.35 USD per sold PS3 60GB. If we look at the budget model with a 20GB harddrive the retail price is 499 USD and the manufacture price at marginally lower 805.85 USD. A loss of 306.85 USD per sold video game console."

At the the risk of doing a Big Brother, are you a talking Italian?:giggle:

Don't believe figures relating to the manufacturing cost of PS3's - they're so fully loaded with development costs as to be meaningless. If the PS3 is a flop, it will cost Sony far more than it ever cost to develop. Therefore, they will do their utmost to make it a sucess. When they calculate how poor the initial sales have been and then extrapolate that calculation to lifetime sales of the product, as well as being pressured by games developers to do something or lose their support, the panic button will then be pressed.

That will then trigger an immediate and substantial reduction in the selling price of the PS3 - probably just in time for Christmas 2007 and result in some panic buying, which ironically, will probably push the price up a little :-D
So if you want to spend £549 to get one now - that's your perogative.

My target price for a PS3 is £299 or less- and that would be fully loaded:p

I would never pre order video game hardware with play.com....

They are legendary for being terrible with hardware orders for release date. They just sell and sell with no thought of their actual allocation.

Also I think £550 is ridiculous. The 60gb console sells for around £300 in the states and you can get the games for £30 on import.

They are going to drop the price of the 360 as well pre ps3 launch over here (There has already been a huge effective drop when you look at some of the bundles available pre christmas, ie 360 premium plus extra controller and 4 games (any thre of choice) for £330....)

Personally I think the UK retail price for these is a joke I can see them dropping the price in line with the states within a few months of launch....
I will end up getting one but only a 20gb as you can upgrade the hd and I wont be using the wifi but only because I am into my games.

No way the mass market is going to pay £500 plus for a games console a game and an an extra controller. You have to be realistic. The VAST majority of ps2 and ps1 were sold at the sub £150 price point........For me Sony have really overestimated how much people want blu ray, most people you talk to dont even know what it is and are more than happy with dirt cheap dvds.....

Hopefully Woolies will do the business again like with the Wii!

Indeed, I bought my PS2 in December '03 for £125 from game.
I wanted one from the day they were released, but there was no way i was paying nearly £300 for one.
Same for the PS3 - would love one, but there's no way i'm paying nearly £600 for a games console - could have a holiday on that!

I personally won't consider one until the 60Gb version falls below £250, even then i'd think twice.

Yes i know that'll take a while, but there's loads of games i haven't played on the PS2 yet so i'm happy to wait!

iSuppli is nothing to do with sony. iSuppli is the only reliable company you can trust as their figures very accurate. Sony made a point that your not just paying for a console, that its also a PC replacement.

I do believe the price is too high even tho thats the cost to make the PS3.

Off topic:
iSuppli is saying that the new iPod Phone will cost about $230 each to make

PlayStation 3 is one of the most expensive video game console ever made and no matter the functionality you can't neglect the high price, practically an account-draining whirlpool. Many are hoping and waiting for the first price cut, but it seems this could take a while. In an interview with Game Informer Sony Computer Entertainment America head man, Jack Tretton, has revealed that the cost of making PlayStation 3 is hard to reduce. At the same time he confirms that they will not use the same swift and drastic price cuts as they did with PlayStation 2.

"The reason for the shallower pricing curve? According to Tretton, the increased investment in R & D and hardware makes the system "a lot more difficult to cost reduce" than the PS2. "There's a heck of a lot more under the hood and it costs us more money to make it,"

Sony has no interest in consumers sitting around waiting for a price cut, but at the same time it sounds completely reasonable that PlayStation 3 will get several smaller price reductions later on. We already know that Sony is losing hundreds of dollars with each sold console.




Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced that PLAYSTATION 3 will be launched in the PAL territories of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia on 23rd March 2007 at a price of EURO 599 (GBP 425, AUD 999.95, NZ 1199.95).

Responding to retail and consumer demand, SCEE confirmed that initially only the 60GB model would be available, with the 20GB model to follow later in the year dependent on demand.

An expected one million PS3 units will be made available during the initial launch period.
#34
lots of news today from Japan about retailers slashing the price of the PS3 because are just not selling. There are no games or video disks for it, so its not selling.
#35
Although I am NOT going to buy this for this price, I have had a look at the launch lineup - and it looks awesome (if you dont own a 360).
#36
I think the PS3 is fairly priced with the fact it's a Blu-Ray Player, they cost £600+ alone.

Like this one:

http://www.1staudiovisual.co.uk/catalog/samsung-bdp1000-bluray-disc-player-p-1633.html

If you take the 360 premium edition, add the wireless adaptor and the HD-DVD drive (which isn't even built into the unit) it comes to about the same money as a PS3. Also you have to take into account the Xbox live costs and the fact the 360 has a smaller hard drive.

Add to this the fact that you can turn the PS3 into a media centre PC by running linux on it, i think its pretty fairly priced at the market sony are aiming at.

Wii are aiming at the cheap and cheerful, the 360 at the mid market and the PS3 at the high end.
banned#37
I personally will want one, whether I will buy one is another matter.
#38
Sure the PS3 gives you loads of hardware for your money, but some people JUST want to play games and are not interested in the other stuff.

Also, it costs about £120 more then in USA.
#39
not 2 good a deal. price 2 high.
#40
On avforums.com they said the console will also probably come with a free Blu Ray movie as it did in the US. Not much of a bonus but more than the standard 360 came with.
