Hmmm, in Carrefour yesterday....

Wii = Out of stock
XBOX 360 = 5 units
Playstation 3 = Huge pile, no interest.

Nobody will buy them at €600!!!! Not even me and i want one.

I agree, I would love to have one too, but not at that price!!! They would sell much more units if the prices were lower, unfortunately we live in a greedy world...

There are two approaches to selling:

Sell 1 unit at £400 and make £100 profit.

Or sell 100 units at £300 and make £1 profit per unit.

No idea which approach Sony are taking..

I was looking at prices of PS3's this week, and there's a local shop with a 2nd hand one already, at £450, but there's a shop in Nelson that is selling them for £399 each plus 5 owned games and 5 rented games... :eek:

Still waaaaay too expensive for me, I've only just gotten a Sony Betamax machine, so a PS3 is a long way off!!! :D
