Another HDD Thread...

Assuming Sony sticks with launching in Japan first, the 'rumors' or the lack of HDD shipping WITH the PS3 make sense. Sony can release the PS3 in Japan with the HDD sold seperately and still dominate the market. Then when they launch in North America, given enough time between the two launches, Sony may ship the PS3 with HDD (Not a bundled package) and be on a level playing field with the 360 in terms of HDD.

,

Sony can't expect the loyalty then Ken speaks of with people 'working extra hours' to pay for a PS3 in North America. The consumer mentality here is too price based. Meaning, the consumer will buy what is cheaper as long as it is the same or better and since Microsoft will obviously pour out a huge Marketing campaign in the market which they have the best chance to beat Sony, consumers can EASILY believe that 360 is better because it's cheaper and was released first.

Thoughts?

very,possiblie however i think the problem with that is consumer should be,more concerned with developer support, if they bundle it from the jump,then that means that developers can be assured that everyone with a ps3,has a HDD and they can start to program games to take full advantage of,that. Other wise its a huge waste to even have one.
