250GB PS3 Slim + GT5 Bundle Coming

Forums - Sony Discussion - 250GB PS3 Slim + GT5 Bundle Coming

No I was simply saying that their reporting is terrible:

"Sales have already skyrocketed for Sony’s PlayStation 3, ever since the new PS3 Slim’s announcementand $100 price drop on all existing models went into effect."

No they haven't - sales were up 30% like we reported on Sunday. That isn't skyrocketing, and the reasons were explained in my news story.

I fully expect sales to surge when the Slim launches, but to say they have already skyrocketed because of Amazon (of all places - ~2% marketshare and ranked hourly) is lame. Yes, PS3 slim preorders are high (I expect 60-70k by launch so 100k week 1 in America) but to say sales have skyrocketed since the announcement is simply untrue.

Also, this article is just lame:

"While speaking with a source close to Sony, we have received word that Sony is not only prepping Gran Turismo 5 for the holiday season, but it will be bundled with a 250GB PS3 slim for the price of $399"

Which source? It seems highly unlikely that #1 GT5 will make it this year or #2 a 250GB bundle will be put out so soon. This could happen but it is just bad reporting as far as I see it, based on nothing but speculation.

Yup, the biggest issue is right here, IMO.

Although, I DO believe GT5 will release during the holiday.

wasn't there like a couple of threads that was posted here showing that GT5 is set to release Q4 or sumthing and another interview where they said that GT5 will release shortly after GT psp.



@ioi, GTplanet also has a source that said to expect GT5 in December. Many other sites have also hinted at GT5 for this year.
