Default Let the Marketing Begin!

Sony gave out Talladega Nights free with the first 500k units in the US. It's only fitting that they mirror that with the UK launch right? Well, the first 500k PS3 users to register their PS3 on PSN in the UK will receive....................

Casino Royale on Blu-ray.

Quote:
The film will play back in 1080p resolution, having been encoded with the MPEG-4 AVC codec and stored on a 50GB, dual-layer Blu-ray disc, offering consumers a chance to sample one of the console's unique selling points - its high definition Blu-ray movie playback.

Excellent choice imo.

But, I don't think it QUITE makes up for the huge delay on the Euro side.
It's a nice gesture though.

If any of you Euro guys get a PS3....I'll, you know, trade you Talladega Nights for Casino Royal
Well Casino Royale hit theaters the same time PS3 launched in US so that was definitely out of the question.

Some other good news on euro ps3 stuff...
Quote:
Advance orders for Sony's highly anticipated PlayStation 3 console have broken all records, with high street stalwart Woolworths revealing it has been taking one order every 20 seconds during the past week.

The state-of-the-art PlayStation 3 will go head-to-head with Microsoft's Xbox 360 when it hits the shops on March 23 and Woolies, one of the first stores to accept pre-orders, has admitted it has been staggered by the demand.

Gerry Berkley, Woolworths' head of games, said, "It's the hottest gaming system since the PS2 launched in 2000 - demand will outstrip supply."

With a retail price of 425, the 60Gb PlayStation 3 costs 125 more in the UK than in the US, but this has failed to deter those determined to try out Sony's latest dream machine.

Yup, hopefully they don't drop the ball on the PQ but the movie itself is excellent. I'm sure Sony is working extra hard on making that one look top quality.

Hopefully the high pre-sales are not scalpers, or ebayers, or whatnot.

Great movie to bundle with the PS3 if you're trying to promote Blu-ray. When Bond breaks into the club place and reveiws the security footage, amazingly the people keep their security videos on... Blu-ray! The film even zooms in on the disc and gives you a nice good look at it to make sure that the viewers see that an entire half of the disk displays the Blu-ray logo. It's a win win for selling Blu-ray players by packaging a popular Blu-ray movie that promotes Blu-ray

That and Fords. I'm surprised Ford doesn't package Casino Royale with all of their new cars...

WTF? The US gets a **** crappy Nascar movie, but the UK gets Casino Royale? How unfair is that?!? Wait, I just remebered, the UK is paying nearly $500 extra for the PS3... i guess they deserve a $30 movie.
