PS3 VS. 360 – The Beer Difference

360beersonthewall.jpgI love PR stunts.  This one by Microsoft has a certain beery quality to it. 

Baiscally Microsoft highlighted the price difference between the 360 and a PS3 to a video game magazine.  In beer.

“What would you purchase for £146…? (The price difference between an Xbox 360 and a PlayStation 3)”, asks the included Xbox 360-headed notice. “Well, for a start we thought you might like £146 worth of beer to kick start your weekend early.”

Of course haters and whiners will point out that you need a HD-DVD addon and a Live subscription to truly match the PS3, but that would take all the fun out of the stunt.  And I debate the Live price anyway, because you can hardly call PS3’s online system comparable to Live.

  1. I saw that. WTF!? If I was forewarned I would queue for 36hours for a 46″ HDTV and throw the PS3 in the trash on the way home.

    Well, maybe play with it for a bit and then sell it 🙂
