Sony Not Beneath QVC

Now I'm not surprised to see Sony products on a home shopping channel. They make a lot of electronics that people want. But I wasn't expecting to find someone toting the PS3 and the Move at 9:00 am on a Sunday morning. And yet, there it was! For a low low price of $599.99, or 5 easy payments of $119.80, excluding shipping and handling of course.

Whatever it takes to make a dollar. My guess is that this is Sony's attempt to try and reach the female audience for a "family friendly entertainment system." Very rarely did the Sony rep or the host call it a video game console. It was an entertainment system that plays Blu-rays, stores music, photos, and can connect to Netflix! Which is true. It does all of that. But that's not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Playstation 3. But seeing how so much of the commercial marketing is directed towards the male 12-45 audience, this direction could prove to be useful to sales.

Oh! And they kept repeating that internet useage was free, unlike other systems. >.>

The bundle included a Sony PS3 320 gig system, Sports Champion (one of the launch Move games), one Playstation move controller, one EyeToy, a bag for your system, some Sports accessories, silicone gloves for the controllers (think Wii condom), and Ratchet and Clank: Surf's Up. If you're interested, you can check out the QVC website.

The next best deal would be on, a move bundle with the 320 gig system for $399.99. But you miss out on all of the additional attachments. If you really want the attachments.
