Back ontopic, I donīt think its all that bad to reduce the price if you canīt empty your inventory. Sure the profit loses get bigger but in the end the total PS3 install base increases and so will the software sales in the mid/long term. The PS3 only needs a few high quality games to gain some momentum and once it does, the profits will come back as well. Not that I care, because I donīt want a PS3 anyway.
I agree with you 100%. The only thing I find interesting is how aggressively the retailers are going about trying to get these PS3s sold. I can't remember a time when a video game console started to get discounted after only 2 months. I hope this trend gets picked up here in the US. The only thing holding me back on buying a PS3 currently is the price tag.

@ this thread. I actually agree with ENU291 100%. The other day I was at Best Buy asking the store manager about this and he was pissed. Where I live we have one of the medium to small Best Buy stores, but there is a great gamer population so they ordered 30 for the store. According to the store manager those 30 PS3's have sat on the shelf collecting dust for over 4 days with not one being sold.

Best Buy is not the only store I see PS3's sitting around.

Can't you just not select 1080i in options then, and only check 720p ?

I wonder what the take ratio of 20 GB to 60 GB systems is. Over the last couple weeks, I've seen dozens of 60 GB ones but only a small handful of 20s.

It's been barely 2 months and already some retailers have decided to reduce the price by a hefty amount... I won't jump to conclusions but this doesn't seem right to me. What do you guys think?

I myself am very much in the Xbox/360 camp. mainly because of LIVE... BUT...

The xbox dropped by Ģ100 within a couple of months of release in the U.K. so yes it has happened before.
Think it was Ģ100 anyway, I've slept since then I know I got a couple of games and a pad as compensation for being an early adopter.

Well, this is bad for Sony and GOOD for me as I want to get one eventually I'll probably wait for some better games and the prices to drop a bit. Probably when a true second generation group of games hits the shelves would be when I buy...

Picky, yes but point taken. I still have a feeling there will be a fix for it, not sure what they are waiting on though.

My 360 was a freebie with my gf's mobile. Does that count as desperation?



I guess more for the telco, not MS, pay not attention to me

If your set is 720p you are getting "full frames". Digital televisions do not display interlaced signals. Your TV most likely deinterlaces to 540p, then scales to 720p.

Everyone I know just ends up playing Halo 2 all the time on their 360s, even though it is an original xbox game. Really, there is just a drought of good games right now in general.

Well...at least God of War 2 comes out soon.
I've bought around 25 games for the 360 since launch and have enjoyed them all. I guess if you are a cynical, over critical asshole gamer then maybe there is a "drought".
