HMV refused PS3 pre-orders unless you buy a PSP too

HMV's online store is now taking pre-orders for PlayStation 3 - providing consumers are also willing to purchase a 4GB PSP pack for a total price of GBP 675.

Quote from: GamesIndustry.biz
A Sony spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz, "This is just one of a number of value added incentives that retailers will be offering to mark the launch of PS3."


Roger Federer would struggle to match that level of spin

Um.  What?  "This is just one of a number of value added incentives that retailers will be offering to mark the launch of PS3."  Yeah, sounds like a real value- being forced to buy a PSP because the PSP is doing sucky.

It's just sheer greed.

Sony Europe are the biggest dicks in the history of dickery.

So if you already have a PSP, you probably shouldn't even bother.

^ Exactly. This is a slap in the face for anyone that owns a PSP and wants a PS3, as they  are now forced to look somewhere else to get it because of this ridiculous scheme.

So they only offer the PS3 with the PSP and not without it? Sounds pretty ridiculous.

Picked this from Bit-Tech -> Wii is an impulse buy, says Sony
