The PS3 is currently the best selling console of all time, but only a few months ago, it was also the cheapest in terms of its price. That’s because retailers started charging more for the console. I remember buying the original PS2 at a store for $199, and it was a bargain at the time. When I went back to that store to buy the PS3, I was given a new price for the console when I purchased it.
This week, Sony and Microsoft are going to try and lower the price on their consoles. The PlayStation 3 is now selling for less than $400 on Amazon.com and Best Buy. It’s all good, but retailers are still charging more for the console.
Well I can’t say I blame them. It’s not like you can play that much of your life on one console any more. You can, however, play your life simultaneously on two or more consoles. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a dream come true to me.
This is another very welcome change as the PS3’s price has been going really high in recent months. With the exception of a few games, the prices of the console are still about the same as the Xbox 360. In fact, Microsoft and Sony are offering an exclusive Xbox 360 title for the PS3 called ‘Reign of Chaos’. The game launches on October 25th, but the price has not been announced yet.
The only reason I can think of for the price difference is that the PS3s lack the PlayStation Move controller. Sony has since announced that they will offer an exclusive PS3 title for the PS4 called “Final Fantasy XV” during the fall. The price of the PS4 version is not yet announced, but it is expected to be in the $100-$120 range. I’m not sure how well the game will fare on the PS4, but I have high hopes.
While it’s not a “golden week,” it is a time where we will all be seeing a lot of games that are coming out. For example, we’re expecting that at the end of this week we will be seeing the next game from the E3 2017 lineup (and the next one from the PS4 lineup) which is the game that will be in the PSVR lineup.
This is one of those times where I’m hoping that the price drop will be well-received by some users, but I’m also hoping that it will just be a bump in the road to a sale that will get people to buy the game more quickly. In the meantime, we can all look forward to other awesome games coming out in the next week, like a new game from the Nintendo Switch lineup.
Of course, the Nintendo Switch will be the first game of the week, since it is the only one to come out this week. That’s because it was the first game of the week and it will be the only game to be one of the first games to be released on the Switch. Hopefully that won’t be a problem for those of us who are the only ones buying the Switch because they didn’t think this was a good idea.
It’s a tough decision to make, but I am not sure I want to buy a new console every couple years. I like them when they come out and I like the games, but I just feel like they are always coming out with the same crap. So I’m thinking of buying a game once a year, and then buying a new console if I don’t like it.
I have to admit that while I have never owned a console myself, I have seen a lot of Sony and Microsoft games on the Playstation Store, so I guess it makes sense that I’m biased. I have yet to experience a game that I didn’t like, so I will need to give that one a shot when I can.
