People who bought a PS3 in London got a free HDTV


 Share

Recommended Posts

At the London launch everyone who bought a PS3 also received a free 46-inch HD television and a taxi home.

In total, the giveaway amounted to ?250,000 worth of televisons to more than 100 gamers.

At the head of the queue, 17-year-old Ritatsu Thomas said the giveaway and PS3 had been worth the 36-hour wait.

He said: "I feel fantastic. I'm delighted that everyone here also gets a television."

Probably didn't give them an HDMI cable to go with it, though! :p

They are next to a dime a dozen now. Plus, if you search the PS forums you'll find the link for the free HDMI cable. ;)

You know if I get a free 46-inch HDTV I don't care if they don't give me an HDMI cable. :p

just to clarify, it looks to be only those that bought one at the PS3 official launch, not those that happen to buy it in london, at any store.

I know that but from a marketing perspective they just made one BIG mistake, I'd much rather give 1 game, 2 BD movies and an additional controller to everybody across the UK who pre-ordered the PS3 as an insentive than just give a TV to those few that went to the "official" launch, that way they will have make 1000s of costumers happy and improve the company's public image for about ?100.000-150.000 less...:happy:::yes::

that's pretty cool for those who got one. it's funny how people still criticize sony when it actually did something good for some loyal fans. may not have been the best decision financially and it affected only a few select people, but at least give them credit for trying.

Ahh, so they had to give away TV's to sell 100 PS3's. Awesome.

huh? these guys didnt know they where getting a free TV! trust me if it was advertised with a free tv a 46" the place would be going mad! Sony was just giving this to the loyal people, who didnt have a clue they would be given a free TV!

lucky ... people :p

i would been their for sure if it had of been publicly known... prob sold the ps3 on... its hard to understand tho, they give you a gift for free that is worth more then what your buying... that is some logic! why not give a ps3 away for free when you buy a tv?
