11w ago - Sony Product Manager Ross Alexander reminds fans today that it is your last chance to pre-order Beyond: Two Souls.
To quote: There's little more than a week left to pre-order Beyond: Two Souls at GameStop for your bonus upgrade to the Special Edition.
The steelbook Special Edition will feature the additional "Advanced Experiments" playable scene. In this scene, you'll test your rapid problem-solving skills as you guide Jodie and the mysterious entity Aiden through a series of tough training missions.
Over the course of 30 minutes of additional play, you'll determine your ability to use your brain while keeping an ice-cool head in high-pressure situations - all while helping Jodie and Aiden collaborate to solve puzzles.
Furthermore, the Special Edition will include the soundtrack comprising the four main themes from Beyond, and four exclusive making-of videos featuring Writer/Director David Cage, along with actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe.
And lastly, you'll also receive a Beyond: Two Souls PS3 dynamic theme and PSN avatar bundle featuring the below avatars.
If you want to get your hands on the Special Edition, make sure you pre-order before it's too late....
256w ago - An external SCEA PR rep has told Edge-Online why a chart (below) was released by Sony indicating that the PS3 was cheaper than Microsoft's XBox 360 and Nintendo's Wii console.
The rep noted that it was thought to be a good time to remind everyone of "our strong offerings".
To quote: An external SCEA PR rep From The agency Porter Novelli told us the company released the chart because they "thought it would be a good time just to remind everyone of our strong offerings," which automatically implies that they feel people have either forgotten about the PS3's inherent value or never seriously considered the PS3's value, due to the higher price tag.
It's highly likely that amidst this PS3 price-drop rumoring that Sony wanted to tell the core audience, "Hey, don't wait for a drop, it's a steal at $399, honest."
I'd argue that today PS3 is a fine value, on par with Xbox 360, particularly for gamers in 2009, when it appears that Sony's internal developers will really begin to bear fruit.
Nevertheless, I'm glad I'm not the one that has to figure out how to get that value message across to consumers.
