    HMV's online store is now taking pre-orders for PlayStation 3 - providing consumers are also willing to purchase a 4GB PSP pack for a total price of GBP 675.

    I remember they tried selling $1000 360 package deals. They didn't do well at all. I guess that company doesn't know how to read sales figures.

    Piece-of-$hit 3's are already hard enough to sell; they are just making it harder

    You are completely clueless. How does sony have anything to do with this? This post just shows how stupid you really are. Just stop typing. Its hard enough to read your posts. If your english was a little bit worse, it would help disguise how stupid you are

    Guys get your sticks outa your arses. Yeah Stupid comment stop flaming the sh*t out of him, grow up.

    HMV is basically exploiting the fact that a lot of people like the Playstation.

    HMV is doing that because they know that those people will just return their PS3s. Those people will get so mad that they will forget to return their PSPs too.

    Clever though stupid

    Actually considering its A SONY PRODUCT - I would say it has A LOT TO DO WITH SONY...

    Wouldn't pre-order from HMV after their Wii fiasco. Didn't get ANY WIIs in Scotland!?
