PS3 Slim at GameStop, Best Buy Offers Games to Stop Trade-Ins

300°
266w ago - As reported last week, the PlayStation 3 Slim console is now available at GameStop.

When GameHeadzOnline.com (linked above) asked the manager about the PS3 Slim's early arrival, he told them the PS3 Slim consoles "came in today, and they have Sony's blessing to sell them."

In related news, [Register or Login to view links] is reporting that Best Buy is now offering free PS3 games to prevent standard PS3 trade-ins.

To quote: "An internal memo (below), verified independently by a number of employees at different stores, shows that Best Buy is offering people who come into the store to exchange recently purchased PlayStation 3's for the newly released PS3 Slim a choice of a free PlayStation 3 title and price match in lieu of the new slimmer, larger-hard-drive sporting console.

Due to the interest in the new Slim model, the memo warns, stores may see people trying to return their console for the newer model. Before doing the exchange, a store is allowed to offer a choice of a free copy of Infamous, MLB 09 The Show or Killzone 2. Not a bad selection, but is it worth more than the smaller footprint and bigger hard...
 

New PS3 Bundle Includes MGS4 and Killzone 2 Games

400°
274w ago - Thanks to several Best Buy employees who confirmed the news, a new 80 GB PS3 bundle is set to include MGS4 and Killzone 2 at the standard price of $400.

The new PS3 bundle goes on sale at Best Buy next Sunday.

To quote: Sent in by a Best Buy employee, and confirmed by other BB employees, it's an 80GB PS3 bundled with copies of two of the biggest games on the system: Metal Gear Solid 4 and Killzone 2. All that for the asking price of a standard PS3, $400.

It's like getting a Wii with Twilight Princess and Mario Galaxy, or a 360 with Gears 2 and Halo 3. But perhaps more importantly, it's also one heck of a saving; perhaps Best Buy need to clear out their stock of 80GB PS3s for oh, I don't know, a new PS3?
 

Sony CEO: PS3 Motion Controller Can Work with Existing Games

400°
276w ago - Speaking to [Register or Login to view links], the president and CEO of SCEA Jack Tretton promised that the PS3 motion controller (and its games library) will be far more flexible and diverse than what one would find on Nintendo's machine.

To quote: "Personally, it's very difficult for me to perceive God of War 3 being played with the Wii controller," he said.

"It's a different experience that doesn't lend itself to certain types of games. [But] I think our [motion] controller can be used with every game that's on the system now - and every game we're working on."

In fact, Tretton goes so far as to say compatibility with current PS3 games is "absolutely conceivable."

Without being able to go hands-on with the device, it's hard to judge. Are there sufficient buttons and sticks to make a 1:1 translation between DualShock and the motion controllers? Time will tell...

Report: Capcom is Working on More PS3 Than XBox 360 Games

250°
281w ago - In a follow-up to Capcom's latest fiscal reports, they've released a chart showing how many games they've released last year as well as how many they'll be releasing this year and next.

The numbers predict that they'll be releasing fifteen PlayStation 3 games this year and twelve Xbox 360 games this year. Following up in 2010, Capcom will be releasing thirteen PlayStation 3 games and twelve Xbox 360 games.

This is odd, considering Capcom is a multiplatform developer. What could these extra PlayStation 3 games be?

Perhaps one of them is of the two new titles to be announced at E3 2009? Mega Man Legends 3, maybe (hopefully)?

We'll have to wait and see... feel free to speculate below.
