well this is the first next generation console launch i believe for which retailers are offering 10% or other sort of discounts. but they still have many left to preorder.:oops:

Yeah, I had two email newsletters yesterday from companies saying they had guaranteed launch day stock still available, Sony have really messed up here, overpriced and poorly designed (memory speed bottleneck), with a big **** you to european consumers on the side (price comparison with the US, removal of the ps2 chip for software emulation).

These'll be half price come Xmas, not that desperate while there's still life in the PS2.

I had one imported from Japan for under £300, (not sure if I can post details here.. Mods?) Playing cheap american blu-rays & games from anywhere , can't play uk ps2 games, but I don't care I know I'm &^%^ed if I have to send it back under warrenty, but my day-of-release ps1, and ps2 still works, so fingers crossed.

Having thoroughly played Motorstorm, Resistance & Virtua Fighter on my friends American PS3 (he is now selling it), we both agree that it is simply not worth the current asking price. He's a "must get the latest gadget" kind of guy and now really regrets laying out £500 on a new games machine, just because it had a shiny new Playstation logo on it. :roll:

In 6 months with a better price structure and maybe a few more exclusives, It will be worth another look. :thumbsup:

*Well now I've played it, commented on it, cancelled my order and bored you all with my observations. I'll shut up about the PS3 because quite frankly I'm bored with it already. Till a price drop combined with the cool looking Little Big Planet & Playstation Home are launched at the end of the year, I'll stick with the other bargains.
