Wee ordered my PS3

Gamestop and EB took limited pre-orders on PS3's starting this morning. Store here is getting 16 of them. I felt like such a nerd when I pulled up before the store opened and there were 10 other people standing outside. Supposedly, there are gonna be less PS3's at launch than 360's... so hopefully on Nov. 17th I can Ebay that bitch and make some $$!

Just put $100 down and the other $500 when I pick it up. I'd like to at the very least double my money. Hoping to get in the $1500-$1800 range... we'll see tho

For $600, is that just the console? Or it's some kind of "premium" package that comes with games and stuff?

No games. It is the "premium" version.. has a 60 gig hard drive... WiFi and Bluetooth... and a Blueray DVD player. There is a lesser version that has a 20gig HD, but it's still $500.

I did read a study a while back on the pricing of systems, and with inflation calculated it's still kinda pricey, but not as bad as it looks... at least IMO.

Yay I found it.
Here's what previous systems would have cost if they were released today, givin inflation calculations:

Atari VCS(1977) - $672
Mattel Intellivision(1979) - $838 (never heard of this)
NES with Robot(1985) - $471
NES(9185) - $376
Sega Master System(1986) - $369
Sega Genesis(1989) - $328
Neo Geo(1990) - $1,012
SNES(1991) - $297
3DO(1993) - $986
Sega Saturn(1995) - $533
PS1(1995) - $399

The rest are all pretty close to what they actually sold for new.

It's Called Prestige Pricing you make your products seem superior becuase they are expensive.. it's a marketing trick.


BUT!!!!!!!!!!


Since it is also a Blue Ray DVD player it's prolly going to be the cheapest one out there when they start releasing more of them.. so It's worth it if you want to be on the cutting edge of technology.. but this is also a HUGE gamble by Sony too..


Prolly gonna grap one for myself too and Ebay that bitch I need da money!!!!!

personally i hate when people reserve it and go on ebay and sale it 2x as much. I wont do anything like that.. I am a big gaming fan and when the 360 launched it pissed me off how half of these people were buying them and throwing them on ebay, ruining the launch experience for others. IF your going to reserve it, keep it. dont ruin the experience for others.

As for the system, i wont buy it till it drops in price.. My 360 does everything i need. It also shares basicly the same graphics.

lol are you kidding me? Ruin the "launch experience?" Supply and demand my man! If someone has a pocket deep enough and wants it bad enough why not make a lil extra cash for myself when I could use it? It's not like I'm running around some poor country with starving people buying up all the food and selling it at a higher price... lol it's just a game console

You should really be pissed at the Companies for doing "Limited Releases" to create this kind of demand for them... They CAN make enough to fill need they just do this for bullshit reasons..

well its harder to do this now... since they started doing world wide releases. Back in the day Japan would get the playstation a year ahead. Also the low numbers of Ps3 is becuz they have had problems with the bluray... they been having all kinds of problems with their bluray this year.

The blu-ray players all hover around the 1000$ mark. So why am I silly in getting one that is 400$ cheaper, and plays games too ?

And I already have a bunch of computers and no, I don't want them in my living room.
