Tesco: Retailers who stick with PS2 for Christmas reap the benefits

200°
327w ago - Many UK retailers believe that there is still plenty of life in the PS2 just yet. Matthew Cushway of Tesco believes that people forget that many families are opting to stick with the PS2 due to difficult times within the current economy and those retailers who stick with the system will reap the benefits this year.

To quote: "PlayStation 2 still has a key part to play in the gaming market this year . It seems some people forget that for a large number of young families the outlay for a new console is a major decision and is simply not an option in the current economy.

"With the PlayStation 2 install base I believe that many younger-skewed games will again perform very well this year. Retailers who stick with the PS2 format for Christmas this year will reap the benefits."
 

GC 08: PSP 3000 Available Bundled with Software in Europe Only!

50°
327w ago - Those of you looking to upgrade your existing PSP to a PSP 3000 this October, prepare yourself - the console will only be available to buy in a package bundled with software.

Speaking to SCEE President David Reeves broke the news that those of you looking to pick one up at launch will be forced to buy some software with it.

"We're going to introduce PSP-3000 in October, and this will be sold initially as part of a bundle, with a piece of software. During this period, PSP-2000 will remain as the base PSP model."

SCEE confirmed that the PSP 3000 will only be available to purchase in Europe in a bundle packaged with either FIFA 09, Buzz! Master Quiz or Harry Potter. Part of us wonders whether the bundle will be used to justify the 30 Euro price-hike over the existing model.

PSP 3000 was announced at GC yesterday sporting an improved screen and in-built microphone. The console goes on sale across Europe on October 15th for 199 Euros.
