The PS3 retails for ?300 in the UK.
The cheapest blu-ray player on Amazon is ?199.
If someone bought a PS3 solely for it’s blu-ray capabilities, they would be paying 50% more than the cheapest alternative. That’s why I called it “high priced”. The PS3 is no longer the cheapest blu-ray player on the market.
However, I acknowledge that the PS3 would be a worthwhile investment for those wanting both a blu-ray player and games console all in one, and for the first party titles that you touched upon, Alex.
I don’t think anyone is suggesting that Sony is doomed. They’ve just lost a major exclusive, a franchise that was synonymous with the Playstation brand. The market has grown too big to be manipulated by Sony’s wallet, the days of buying developer loyalty via exclusivity deals are over. The winner in all of this is of course the gamer, as their choice of games are not restricted to one platform.
Also, commenters on that site seem to think they’re some sort of highly intelligent, highly objective true hardcore gamers who were wronged in the past, and yet they quickly degrade to Sonyboy-esque tantrums… Meh.[/quote]
Hehe Alex, it’s a pro-Sega site, don’t take what they say seriously, it’s all meant in jest if only to have a pop at Sony. It’s great when enraged Sony fanboys leave comments in the comments section and are ripped into by the site’s regular readers. They miss the whole point of UKR, which is what makes it so funny to read
[quote=“Shadow”]UK Resistance is the most ultimate bad ass site in the history of existance.
