Microsoft answering Sony's giveaway

10 replies 4 views Edited Apr 2, 2007
Found this on IGN, way to go Microsoft.

Last Week Sony launched it’s PS3 in Europe after a 4 month delay. To compensate for that, the first 100 customers in line received a free 46” Sony BRAVIA™ HDTV. This being said it comes as no surprise that Microsoft has decided to do the same for the release of it’s new Xbox 360 Elite, due out later this month. Microsoft announced today that for the launch party of the Xbox 360 elite, the first 500 customers will receive a free 52” Sharp AQUOS®  with 1080p HD support. Microsoft stated that this decision was in no way impacted by the Sony Euro giveaway, going on to say “the Xbox 360 Elite is an upgrade of the original, and for an upgraded system you need an upgraded TV.” The Elite sports several new features, the biggest one being HDMI support and an HDMI cord included. “We want our customers to truly experience HD gaming, that is why we have made this deal with Sharp. They have what are arguably the best HD televisions on the market. That is why we chose the AQUOS®  for our customers.” So what does this mean? We're not sure, but maybe Sony will have some sort of new giveaway and ship a BRAVIA™ to anyone who has already purchased a PS3. What we do know for sure is that this is without a doubt another blow to Sony’s reputation. We tried to reach Sharp electronics for comment, but have yet to receive any reply.

That is bull. They would have never done this if Sony didn't do it first with the Euro PS3 launch.
