When Sony PlayStation 3 was launched, which was the successor of PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2, back in 2006, the gaming world was taken by storm. The device broke many sales records and is considered as one of the best gaming consoles ever to hit the market. This beautifully designed console had some very interesting features and its specifications could meet the demands of the most hardcore gamer out there.
The sales have been going on even now and the demand for the device is still high. These sales take place through direct marketing outlets and also through online retailers. Most of the sales are through online websites though.
So till now if you haven’t had your hands on a PS3 device then this is the best time to buy one since they are available on sale for a lesser price. Many online sites are giving cash discounts for the gaming console. When compared to retail stores, the online retailers sell their gaming consoles at a much reduced price.
They are able to do this because a lot of money can be saved up since they are doing direct marketing with the customers and no third-party is involved. This helps them to decrement the amount which they usually would have to pay as commission for these intermediate agents. The result is that the product is available at a much reduced cost online.
Sony's PlayStation 3 Slim has some very notable features in it that includes Blu-Ray disc drives, online game service, PlayStation portable connectivity etc. The physical size and design is almost same as that of PS2 and features a beautiful convex shaped design.
One of the greatest advantages of this device is its compatibility with games that are meant for previous versions of PlayStations. The operating system of the console is made by Xross MediaBar and the software version in it is 3.61. The hardware in the device is of SATA type.
To promote sales the online stores also gives discounts on particular days and seasons. During the holiday seasons and during special festivals, the people usually give gifts to other people. Many customers now turn to gaming consoles to gift themselves or their loved ones since these devices are now more than just a simple entertainment system.
So if the customers buy the product at the right time in a sale, they can get the device at a very affordable price and sometimes even more cheaply than buying a second hand gaming console. It is expected that the new slide PS3 is priced around Rs.15,000/- in India.
