Well, that may stop people lining up for consoles.

Aren't most of them preordered anyway? If so, they wouldn't be carrying the $5000 that the PS3 costs.

The name says it all. They got money donated, lined up for hours, got their PS3, walked out onto the street and destroyed it. There were some pissed of game freaks.

Is anyone getting a PS3 on Friday when it comes out? More importantly does anyone care?

This article is a funny but accurate summary of what happened last night.

The Age was reporting the same sort of thing in Melbourne. One radio station was even getting their staff to cheer to make it sound exciting. News.com.au was reporting form Sydney that stores were packed and it was a freny. News.com.au shits me.

Yeah, I honestly think it has some impressive features and very promising games coming out for it, but the $1000 tag is just utterly ridiculous.

I guess it was the arrogance of Sony thinking that their faithful would buy it regardless of price. The market is so different now though since the release of the PS2. You have the Wii for $400 with it's novelty value even if the games may be crapper by most serious gamer's POV. You have the 360 faithful. And you now also have MMORPGs with mega traction that certainly did not have that when the PS2 came out.

Just shitty management really But I doubt Sony will become the new Sega. If they just dropped the machines to $400 and bumped the games up $20 they would probably make the same amount in the long run. I reckon I would buy one today if they did that.

Anyone know if any stores in Hobart have playable demo stations?

Yeah, well if I was there to see it, I would have stood up for the poor little PS3, and beaten those dickheads senseless.

That would have made for a much more interesting video... I'd be sued for assault, but the publicity would surely get me a job as a games tester at SONY Studios.
