Re the arcade trial and then buy to activate.. How in gods name did ms not think this was a good idea. I've lost count of the number of 360 arcade titles I've bought following a quick free demo that otherwise I would have missed. Christ what were they doing when they were putting the One together!!!!

How many kids are going to get run over when they are crossing the road while using their Samsung VR phone headsets. Most of the ones I have to avoid while driving to work can't even cross the road normally.

GTA, 'Splosion Man XBL price cuts

hoathenfold

8 years ago

It would be interesting to find out how many copies Splosion man sells at 160 points. If it gets enough interest at this nice low price point it may encourage other developers/ms to release more games at this price (particularly older stuff that may not be getting as much interest anymore)

Xbox 360 Elite price cut to 199

hoathenfold

9 years ago

Surely the 360 Elite isn't going to come bundled with a bloody composite cable?
If its going to come with the component cable that the Premium originally did, that must cost more to include than an HDMI?
I guess MS are thinking that a lot of their customers still don't have HDMI equipped TV's and with the Elite now the 'main' unit they have to make sure this works for everyone straight off the bat.

I love the idea of the online 'racebook' community thing. i can remember playing Sega Rally on the Saturn against a group of friends for months just trying to get better lap times :)
Not sure about the weopons though - will pass judgement until I play it.
What Id really love is a game with just 8 cars on the grid that runs at true 60fps, amazing AI and photo real graphics. Just to see what this generation of consoles is truely capable of.

Would you kindly all stop worrying.
This will be great.
Its a great IP and Im sure they have an amazing storyline planned. And thats what made the original great - the FPS aspect of it was in my mind just the best way to tell the story - I enjoyed the story and exploring way more than the shooting aspect of it.

PS3 launches in Europe

hoathenfold

11 years ago

The sad thing is that a lot of the people who come on this site, and contribute to these forums would probably have bought a PS3 if it had come in at the same price as a premium 360. Well all love this stuff - if we didnt we wouldnt be here.

If the huge Sony marketing budget had been better spent at keeping the cost down (and Sony not rubbing the UK's noses in it once again by making us wait longest, treating us like dirt, charging us more, but giving us less) I suspect that there are quite a few of us who for 300 would be sitting at home right now having a right old laugh playing Motorstorm.

'But when you think of it: 2,000 X 100 odd = 200,000+ '

The retail price of the TV's is a lot higher than the cost price, and SONY charge the UK market a significant amount more for the console than anyone else, so they've only got to shift around 1000 PS3's and the free TV's are paid for (not that it wasnt in their marketting spend anyway.)

Fair play to them though in that respect - excellent PR - its been on all the news stations / shows this morning - maximum exposure!!

And fantastic for those who got a free TV !

I wonder how many 'pre-orderers' didnt show to pick up their orders once they realised the ebay market for them was non-existant?

Pre-ordering is one thing, turning up and paying for it is something else.
