Sony Computer Entertainment America has some good news and some bad news to share. The good: Sales of PS3 hardware at its "top retailers" jumped 300% for the first week of September versus the week before the system's price was cut to $299 for the 120GB "slim" unit. The bad: Um, well ... okay, we lied. Everything's pretty good for a change at SCEA HQ, considering people are actually buying its console. (Although 300% pales in comparison to Europe's totally legit 999% increase ... or Japan's 7,350% increase).

The hardware maker also noted that, as of August, five of consumers' top 10 most-wanted games (as surveyed by OTX's GamePlan Insights) -- Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Assassin's Creed 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 -- are on PS3, in case you somehow didn't know this. We would like to note (mainly for Sony's information) that Modern Warfare 2 is also on Xbox 360, and that version was No. 2 in OTX's survey results, whereas the PS3 version placed 10th. (Assassin's Creed 2 for 360 is No. 3 and No. 8 for PS3.) In fact, if you calculate the "purchase intent index" for the top three (all Xbox 360 games) and the lower five (all PS3 games) they're nearly identical. But still, we'll give it to them.

Maybe it's more worthwhile, though, to point out that Uncharted 2 didn't even make the top 25. What's up with that?


7,350% in japan XD.png AWESOME. It is good to hear the ps3 is starting to get the recognition it deserves. Now there is no off putting price tag, the PS3 should do really well, and hopefully we will see more money going into the PSN and the way things work on the PS3. EVOLUTION HAS STARTED!!!

I read about it going up 999% in the UK. Never really believed it till I read the whole article and it said basically "nobody bought PS3, Now everyone bought a PS3." clap.gif

I'm waiting for the next episode on Watchdog. A huge piece on the PS3 and the problems that they have been having. And the little Sony has done to change it. Should even the playing field about the Xbox 360 RROD and should stop all the fanboyistic idiots spouting that off.


Also this is not a topic to say "OMGz teh PS3 is better!!11!!! Xbox Sucks". We don't encourage Fanboyism and don't want to have to go back to the old ways on treating fanboyistic comments.

YES I don't play Xbox 360 anymore.

And yet I still won't be getting one because all my mates have 360s, because they were cheaper at the time. Too late, Sony.

Sony has practically re-launched the console with a new redesign, new font/logo associated with the system, new box art now, and of course a lower price.

They'll need to advertise like crazy so they can get games like Uncharted 2 known to the public.

i personally prefer the older ps3. it looks much better, but i dont think sony will complain about something that bumps up sales even if it is ugly.
the idea of advertising seems to have passed sony by though HB~Sauce, a huge ad campeign isnt really going happen

I don't have that problem as most of my mates don't have consoles anyway (and I rarely speak to them,) and if they have 360s - fuck 'em. I'm not going to get one just so I can play with them. I prefer playing alone anyway.

My internet connection, actually. I live in the middle of nowhere, so the only broadband internet I can get is a Verizon Wireless USB modem, which limits me to 5 gigs of data usage per month. I barely get online on my 360, but I still run out my data usage within three weeks. One of the reasons I want a PS3 is for LBP, which I would be online all the time for.

I'm sure I'll end up getting one when I move.

LBP is one of those good reasons to get a PS3. Unlimited levels are a pretty good deal for the price!

Yes, same here. Also the backwards compatibility issue.

I returned my brand new PS3, mislabeled as a 60Gb,
which was just a regular unit - but kept the adapter
that *only* works with the discontinued model.
Ball....dropped....

Another thing they need is a proper disk tray.
I'm not sticking a $60 disk into a slot in molded plastic.
Sony seemed to have forgotten how good the PS1 and 2 were.

i haven't had any issues with it scratching the discs like i did with the old PS2 tray... i prefer the newer way myself...

it's good to see their numbers up though... the few friends i do have that play video games own the system and the new price has brought about rumblings towards other friends to look into it... it's a win-win for video gamers period biggrin.gif... plus, they've now got an established lineup of current and future games, and dropping the price was the last hurdle cleared to continue on its long successful journey... enjoy the PS3 for another 7+ years my friends... it's worth the long-term investment...

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

If the level making thing in LBP is as good as I hope it is, you'll be getting a terrifying glimpse into my psyche usually reserved for hobos and prostitutes.

Dude, I kid you not, you can make ANYTHING in LittleBigPlanet. If you see it in your head, and you're good enough at level building, you can 100% make it. Trust me, I've seen it all. Things I didn't think were even possible, were made. Even swimming pools that are unbelievably realistic and make you feel like you're in water are indeed just illusions. (Water hasn't been in the game yet, but will be soon.)
