Ps3 expect a shortage

And we can blame it all on the expensive components. It appears that Sony will now ship only 3 million of their promised 6 million consoles. As Ps3 game sales were expected to make up for the below cost retail price of the Ps3, it appears all is not well in the Sony camp

For a moment there I thought only 3 PS3s would be produced... Sounded weird, you know...

Anyway.

Hopefully Wii will not cost 250 euros. Not, at least, while I keep turning down jobs...

The Elderly said...

sorry it's this fountain pen, it's been leaking for ages.... turning down jobs now that's an experience i'd like to have......

gnome said...

Not always a fun thing to do you know... Could even be desribed as more irritating than blogger's commenting system.

Still, it can eventually put a smile on your face and make you feel good about yourself.

Oh, and do fix that pen of yours...

(wraps cellotape round fountan pen) see better and i saw and changed the glaring grammatical re the 3 of 6 million.

Hoping they make you an offer you can't refuse...... a stretch limo woudl be a good start..

gnome said...

And something that isn't blatantly unethical or destructive would be nice too...

Wooh. Nice glasses.

The Elderly said...

Thank you, approaching 4 years without replacements (an optician somewhere has a heart attack), nuts are loose, but I find it apt...

That dosen't leave much of a choice.... Game Reviewer? Game Developer? Game Something?

DEITRIX said...

I wont be getting one for a while anyway... ho-hum!

The Elderly said...

nor me, wii is a contender unless the stock of marvelous 360 games explode around christmas

DEITRIX said...

I think starting in Oct thru Dec theres going to be alot of good 360 games...
Starting with Splinter Cell in Oct.
November is huge!
-and lots are marked with release dates for the holidays..?!?!? -but we know how that goes.. crossing fingers for December!

(takes of socks) and toes.....

gnome said...

(gnome slaps conversation back in track)

Nope nothing Game related unfortunately... Wish it were game's related...

The Elderly said...

game related would be so good, i could tell my friends that I know a gnome in the game.... no forget that....

It's a pity I could see that facial logo down the bottom of a 360 box art.... theres an idea.....

gnome said...

Think I should have a try at fantasy themed game modelling?

hmmmm

The Elderly said...

3d game models with leopard spots...... females of course.... tails optional..

sorry my fantasies just got the better of me..... where'd i leave my tablets!!!

HA! Sony is in real deep water because of this. Now they'll look just as sad as Microsoft during that X-mas. I'm not sure how it was like in your country but you had to give up your first born to get a Xbox 360 before X-mas. My personal favoriate was when poeple bought them IN BULK at the store then sold them on the street for triple the price.

I guess I shall see the same thing this year with the PS3. Hope someone see this and reads between the lines (RESERVE IT, PAY FOR IT UP FRONT, AND WAIT IN LINE TO ENSURE YOU GET IT!)

The Elderly said...

indeed your right, not for love or money or your first born, could you secure a 360 in ireland, unless you had pre-ordered.

Talk on the forums, suggest $115 to $130 fro a ps3 title... thats really tippin the gamers over the edge, and certainly out of the range of most families. Little Timmy might have to write a plan B letter to Santa.

gnome said...

Lots of words... Should be working really... Won't answer... Firstborn? Thankfully don't have one...

The Elderly said...

you fervently hope.....

gnome said...

You wouldn't happen to know anything, would you... Oh dear... really wouldn't know what to do with one..

The Elderly said...

with your magic powers you could disapear them? or use them as an ingredient for a meat pie.... actually no, wikipedia suggest such a practice may be illegal......

gnome said...

Post birth abortion?

The Elderly said...

my mother did try it when i was 14, no too savage.....

amnesia..... as in

no i don't remember your mother?

gnome said...

Nt brutal enough... Uhm... let's see... Inspiring interest in bungie jumping, steep mountain climbing, monastic life?

The Elderly said...

theres a slim possibility, but even inhereting an ounce of your personality, the young lad will probably be here (looks at his watch) any second now, with a bottle of tequila.....

gnome said...

Perhaps, perhaps... Quite probable...

:)

The Elderly said...

ding! dong!.....

i'll get it.... i wonder who that is...?
