    Sony releasing $600 BR players

    http://www.playfuls.com/news_06352_S...Station_3.html

    If you want a Blu-Ray player, you don't have to buy a PS3 now that the price is down significantly. But did Sony screw itself with that move?

    Obviously. Every move Sony is making currently is screwing them over.



    Well do you?

    umm...anyone think its a strategy?

    they make the customer think:Why would i buy a $600 blu ray player when i can get one and a game system and tons of features for $600?

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    What if you don't want the extra features? As I see it, now people don't have to buy a PS3 if they don't want to. But Sony is probably screwing itself one way or the other, either the stand-alone BR or the PS3.

    Thats exactly what I thought! Still the price of a PS3 is ridiculously high when compared to the 360 and the Wii so I don't think its going to have a huge impact in sales. Its possible though that people will think shouldn't I get a BluRay player alone so I know for sure that it will work and I'll get the best quality I can get?

    I told you people over and over again. If you are buying a PS3 for the Blue Ray function alone, you are an wasting your money. Just like when $1000 DVD players launched, they were more expensive than the $200 PS2. But in a short time their price dropped dramatically to $50. Soon Blue Ray players will be far far cheaper than buying a PS3. Never justify impulse buying. Sit back, wait for a price drop on any over priced new technology.

    Common sense goes a long way.

    True, but many people want it because it has a cheaper blu-ray player than the others. Come to think of it, this is a 50-50 gamble by Sony. This will either hurt or save their gaming division, depending on what more people want out of the PS3.

    You people are ****ing stupid. Why would a gamer get a blu-ray player, when you can get a ps3 for 600$ as well. It won't hurt sony at all, but will rather pull out people who wouldn't buy a ps3 anyway. How do you stupid ****s think it'll hurt them? I'm REALLY tired of this Nintendo dickriding. You can be a fan, but don't suck the "Big N"'s penis, please.
