Jack Trenton wants to give you $1200 for ps3 you see on a shelf. (http://www.engadget.com/2007/02/09/ce-oh-no-he-didnt-part-xxiv-jack-tretton-wants-to-give-you/)

i don't know what to say anymore. i mean this is just sony PR at its best. ppl are waiting for platform games to be released and they still act as if the console is selling like hotcakes.

And on that note, I went to my local Target a few days ago to see if/when they were ever getting DS's back in stock, and there were two PS3's there. Cheeyah.

What the ****? That insult didn't even make sense.

How about you stop taking every last thing so personally. Sony does the dumbest ****ing things you could think of and we all get a chuckle out of it. When you friend says something completely retarded, one usually makes a sarcastic comment about it, no? Sony, meet the retarded friend.

In the article which is actually in the March issue of EGM which I received today, EGM called 18 different stores back then and half of them had PS3's in stock. Some stores even had 20. In fact when Tretton was told that he got fetchin' defensive for the next 6-7 questions.

This is the same man that says the PSP owns the DS in sales.:lol:

The big problem is Tretton is the President of SCE now so when he says something stupid to the media everyone knows very fast.

I dont think that makes much difference, there was a jane doe PR rep at CES nobody knew about, but her words spread quick to ign/gamespot/1up.

Harrison is president of SCEWW so it's not like his words spread much slower. I think Harrison is a more grounded person and his FUD is significantly less than they rest of sony.

Heres his most recent interview from gamespot.

He is a PR guy.. he can spin the statement along the lines of: "That was in January, we have increased production a bazillion times since then."

Last week, the Best Buy in Lex, had 15 in stock, and had to have a slogan to sell them at all..."We will beat any price guaranteed, or it's free"

LOL

15 x $1200...hmm

I received that magazine a week ago and thought it was an interesting read. I went to gamestop earlier today and they had 3 60GB's and 2 used 20GB's.
I was told that the systems are being returned faster than they can sell them.

Sony AND the PS3 AND Blu-Ray are just JOKES. What a goof. My Blockbuster store won't even carry anything other than 1 copy of 3 games for the PS3 because they KNOW it won't get rented out. TBH, I think Madden is the only PS3 game that has been rented out period.

I wonder how many unsold PS3's are in Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

I don't know about this particular subject, or Sony's PR in general, and I am not a console fanboy (I don't even own any of the major three current gen consoles) but one thing is for certain:

PS3 commercials are among the most retarded commercials I have ever seen.

Thank you.

The Sony ads really do suck.. The Wii adverts are pretty good ie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5cPVP_llfo (Wii for All)
