Let's see... Uncharted 2, MAG, Gran Turismo 5, God of War 3. With that caliber of exclusives at Sony's E3 presscon, a lot of people are gonna want to have a PS3 after the expo. That's exactly what happened with Amazon when the online retailer reported a nice bump up in sales in the weekend after E3.
Just last Sunday, the 160GB SKU scored a 95 increase at Amazon, ranking it at #183 at the retailer's gaming slate.
Not surprising at all. If you're gonna get to play those whoppers, you gotta have the hardware. Buyers didn't seem to want to wait for the elusive, nearly-mythical PS3 price cut - which may make sense, since that damn price cut may not happen before those exclusives start hitting stores. Would be great if it does, but whether it happens or not, that's still money well-spent.
