Games Radar: Why are PS3 games always late?

Games Radar - November 22, 2007

Oh PS3, you really must work on this tardiness. You’re a strong student with a lot of brains, and you can produce good work when you put your mind to it, but with this persistent lateness you’re not only letting us down, but you’re letting yourself down too. We know you’ve only just joined us and that you’ve had to take some time to settle in, but you’re really going to have to start applying yourself from now on.

Patcher: 40GB delayed by stock of 60 GB in U.S?

GI - October 15, 2007

Michael Pachter: "These rolling announcements suggest to me that Sony has an inventory control problem, with too many unsold 60GB units out there, and they don't want to have to cut the price to clear them," Pachter thinks that Sony will wait to announce the 40GB after the 60GB are cleared out, or else it will "accept reality and bundle a game and an extra controller for USD 499.99."

PS3 Bundle Includes MGS4, Killzone 2

Kotaku - July 4, 2009

Normally, hardware bundles are a spotty affair. A game you don't really want, or two games, one you kinda want, one you just do not want. But this bundle, on sale at Best Buy next Sunday, looks great! Sent in by a Best Buy employee, and confirmed by other BB employees, it's an 80GB PS3 bundled with copies of two of the biggest games on the system: Metal Gear Solid 4 and Killzone 2. All that for the asking price of a standard PS3, $400. It's one hell of a bundle.

PS3 sales top 1m in Japan - Enterbrain

Games Industry - July 18, 2007


Submitted by Making_Waves (706) at 4:19AM PST on July 18, 2007


A new survey from Famitsu publisher Enterbrain claims that 1.01 million PlayStation 3s have been sold in Japan since the console launched there on November 11. According to Reuters, it took Sony four times longer to reach the million mark than it took Nintendo. Enterbrain said 2.9 million Wii units have been shifted since its December 2 launch. The next-gen console with the biggest head start has racked up the lowest sales - Xbox 360 arrived in Japan in December 2005, and just over 420,700 units have since been sold.
