Xbox 360 just recently dropped their price by £50 on each console and with gta 4 out in like 25 days i could see the ps3 console price will be cut but about £30 so about £230-250

Thats my opinion on it and what i believe will happen

But Sony already has the stonger offer with blu ray and they know it. Analysts are predicting that while the xbox will sell more copies of GTA.. Sony will sell more consoles as people have been holding out to buy the PS3 untill a game like GTA comes out. That and the fact that MGS 4 is out in june.

Obviously i would be happy to see a price drop but i cant see it happening

Hey im not the only one who thinks this some guys written an essay on it
consoleinformer.com/200…il/

Think about it they are starting a new fiscal year and if the 360 sells more gta copies then shares wont start too well but by dropping the price end of april/start of may their shares would sky rocket and would boost profits a hellaofalot

I think if they were going to do it they would have done so already, they would want to get the max number of pre-orders for gta as possible, In doing it at the end of april consumers will prob have already made their choice in regards to GTA and what console they want.

so really theyd have to cut it around the 20th - giving consumers a chance to get a ps3 and change ttheir minds about getting it on the 360 possibly
Well if you were running sony wouldnt you cut the price to entice the sales
Metal gear sold is coming out a few weeks after gta isnt it but i wouldnt see them dropping the price then as the people that want the game will have got a ps3 already

No real need for it but the ability to play some PS2 games and run Linux, not to mention watch Bluray movies is a definite attraction. XBX 360 will do for now.I've actually got a 60 GB on order but as to whether or not it'll turn up... tune in next week to find out lol.



why do people want a 60gb ps3 so bad - yes it can play ps2 games but so can a ps2 just buy one second hand

Im waiting until after gta to get it

]Gameplay has lots of bundles for £300

40GB, Vegas 2 and GT4: Prologue looks like a good-un! Or swap Vegas for Drakes Fortune if you already have Vegas on 360.

Hope this helps.

Gta4 bundle coming and will be around £260

i dont know how any of you missed the deal in woolworths (its been on offer now for at least 3 weeks) a 40gb ps3 and Assassin's Creed for 279.99 thats enough to get gt5 prolouge from woolworths.co.uk (£17.99 free delivery) and still be under your budget.

oh and someone asked if gt5 is like pgr4 or forza2, its more like forza2 though i dont know why you dont like forza2 its easy to complete and is the next best thing to gt5, pgr4 is an arcade racer though im not saying thats a bad thing i like the pgr games just forza2 and gt5 are simulation racing games.

lol i wish i had waited for the 120gb version though like a lot of people have said already the 40gb is ok if you dont want to play ps2 games other than that the hdd is upgradeable so for £30 you could upgrade to a 60gb drive or if your realy cunning get a 250gb drive for £120 from eclipse-computers.com (i mention them a lot cause thats where i get all my pc stuff from, there based in coventry so its easy to get to there shop aswell as ordering online plus there pretty reliable)

oh the only problem with playing a ps2 is playing on a hdtv the picture looks rubbish through composit compared to playing ps2 games on the ps3 via hdmi plus it makes the games look smoother and upscales them too thats the only reason i can say the 60gb ps3 is good for the ps3 games any ps3 is good enough apart from the 20gb version that came out in japan and america you can thank sony for not brining it out here as it didnt have hdmi on it and diddnt have as many features as the 40gb ps3 has though ive heard an 80gb ps3 is comming out soon with ps2 support on it, but untill more solid info comes out the 40gb ps3 is your best bet though if you want to play your ps2 games on a hdtv its a must to play them on a ps3 you wont beleave the difference at least thats what i noticed.

tbh any ps2 game ive played recently looks awful its like playing an n64 game when youve been playing ps2 all the time - whereas ive been playing 360 in hd - i genuinly cant play ps2 games anymore

i got my "bundle" from all over the place

Ps3 + singstar From J Lewis = £244.58

GT Prologue + F1 Game from ChoicesUK = £34.16

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune + Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction from TheGameCollection.net £39.51

not bad for £318.25 with 5 games i dont think ok singstar is pants but that was the only John lewis one in stock ( when they where cheaper ) i could use the code with :)..

It was a bit of a shock but then I hadn't played the PS2 in aaaaaaages. Works fine though and with a few firmware updates there's a noticeable difference in image quality.I was actually surprised at how many people still play it online; my biggest problem now is trying to readjust to the Sony controller.. it's missing a few lead weights inside me thinks, too light compared to the Xbox brick.



YES THATS EXACTLY MY PROBLEM

I tried my friends ps3 controller but its too light i barely feel like im holding anything - it needs a rumble inside too as the gaming experience isnt there without it
Whens dualshock 3 gunna start being introduced with the current ps3's

Anyone would think I don't have a mind of my own, they wouldn't be far wrong.

No, there will be a price drop in the coming months! Why? Because our beloved Daniel will become a user. Why does that mean there will be a price drop? Is it because how cruel life is to our dear Daniel? So cruel that Daniel will spend his hard earned Tesco salary just before a price crash? Or is it because it means that the free internet would involve "ol' whiney"?
