SCEE announces NEW ps3 STARTER PACK

#6
F1... Getting on a bit now isn't it? I suppose they want to ride off the current season's British performance but eh it would help if the game knew who he was.

Uh wait hang on, they're giving you two controllers when neither game has a split screen option?

That's the starter pack, huh.

It comes with a deck of cards and a special limited edition holographic "Riiiidge Racer"/"$600" card mana pull +50

It's actually a pretty good value- the euro PS3 was 599 euro to start with, wasn't it? two games plus a controller for free isn't a bad deal.

That being said- DAMMITSONYBRINGTHEPRICEDOWNALREADY

Two games I don't want and the console isn't white.

I want to buy one of these this Christmas for LBP, yet they are going out of their way to put me off. This isn't how it's supposed to be.

looks like they are going for the PSP way of selling hardware.

im sure everyone remembers their packin game bundles.

how did that do for PSP?

I guess they need to get rid of those excess copies of F1 somehow but really Sony please stop raping us with this stupid overflated prices.

I was praying that Sony wouldn't be trying the PSP model of increasing the "value" of the SKUs. Please don't let this be their business model for much longer.

So adding two games plus an extra controller for the same price isn't adding value to the package? I'm curious, what's your definition of value?

Until MGS4 they will increase the perceived value of the system by bundling first party crap.
Before MGS4 I expect to see PS3 + MotorStorm, Resistance, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and F1 for whatever this is going for.

Microsoft had some crazy bundles before the Elite. Crackdown, Gears, PGR3, Bomba Pinata, Live Arcade disc, extra controller all for just over the standalone asking price.

No i think he was saying the problem isn't "value", it's that most people can't afford the $600 dollars for a videogame console even if they thought it WAS worth it. The problem is not "value", it's the sticker price... it has to go down to $399 or less and soon or Sony is officially out of the running for anything but distant third.
