Ever go to any store recently? Well all those PS3 boxes piled up that people walk buy and ignore are fake. Sony says the shortage that isn’t a shortage will end in May, it already ended, not the shortage – the demand of people wanting one did.



Gamepro GDC Predictions February 27, 2007

Posted by dpcough in Nintendo, PS3, Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.

Gamepro has done some predictions for GDC and there a lots of Microsoft predictions for the good of the platform. I like this one a lot, and something about price dropping and Black Xbox 360s, click on Gamepro above for the full article.

PREDICTION: Microsoft will announce a final release date for Halo 3.

Likelihood: 75%
Submitted by: Major Mike

Why it WILL happen: Bungie has already targeted fall of 2007, but it’s likely that Microsoft will attempt to grab headlines at GDC by narrowing this timeframe down to a specific month. Riding high on the success of Crackdown (due in part to the bundled Halo 3 beta invitation), Microsoft has little to lose and much to gain. In fact, Microsoft Game Studios’ Xbox 360 plans for 2007 revolve almost entirely around Halo 3. As the first Halo game to land on the Xbox 360, expectations are high all around. Skipping Halo 3 talk at GDC would be a waste of an opportunity to get the game back into gamers’ minds as they debate whether to buy an Xbox 360 or a PS3.

Peter Molyneux is doing one of the keynotes I believe at GDC, too bad Bill Gates won’t be there. Then there would be two great keynotes, an imaginative keynote about Fable by Molyneux, then the Sony Conference.

PREDICTION: Internet commentators will love Shigeru Miyamoto’s keynote and hate Phil Harrison’s.

Likelihood: 80%
Submitted by: Dave May Cry

Why it WILL happen: It’s practically a given. The PS3’s high price point, coupled with Sony’s past displays of arrogance, have made the company an irresistible whipping boy for vitriolic blogs. In contrast, Nintendo’s new underdog status and fan-favorite Wii have made them the critical darlings of the moment. In keeping, blog reactions will almost exclusively pan Harrison’s keynote, regardless of what he actually says, while trumpeting that of the charismatic Miyamoto.

PS3s Everywhere and Cousin’s 1000 Doesn’t Hit December 29, 2006

Posted by dpcough in PS3.

Today lots of websites are reporting how PS3s are sitting in stores not being sold with picture evidence from Joystiq that made Digg’s front page. Well I have an experience.


If you are a gamer you know the PS3 is expensive and only has one game on it that is good that the 360 does not in Resitance Fall Of Man but it isn’t worth the price of the PS3, only if you are rich you got a PS3 when it came out. On December 20, 2006 my cousin purchased a PS3 and put it on eBay at the Buy It Now Price of $1,000 and no one bought it as PS3s are selling for as low as $680 now on eBay. So my rich friend who will not be named, I’ll call them the family with 8 BMWs, offered to purchase the PS3 at retail price because they could not find them anywhere. My cousin couldn’t afford the $650 and didn’t want the PS3 because he had a 360 so he shipped it to the family with 8 BMWs at the price of $680 which wasn’t even a profit with shipping and taxes the PS3 cost.

Point is, the PS3 is not selling. My father called me up today when he was at Gamestop returning a broken game asking me if I wanted one because they had just gotten more PS3s and they weren’t selling there so they had more. I happily said no because I have an Xbox 360 and Wii and New Computer so I don’t need one. I’m glad I made the right choice as the PS3 is now crashing and burning, no one wants one and Sony is losing money. The Buy It Now of $1,000 didn’t hit, but Sony’s marketshare has taken a sharp hit and fall.
