Sony has launched an Australian website for consumers wanting to know more about the upcoming PlayStation 3.
The site, www.playstation.com.au/ps3, contains the latest specs on the console and has previews of upcoming games. It also has an FAQ detailing the technology behind the console and the differences between the two PS3 price bundles. The PlayStation 3 is set for release on 17 November, with the basic bundle retailing for AU$829 and the upgrade bundle selling for AU$999.
"This website initiative was born from consumer hunger for information on the product," Michael Ephraim, Managing Director Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and New Zealand, said. "Since E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo -- May 2006) the PlayStation consumer phone service has been experiencing a steady climb in traffic from people seeking basic product information. In response we decided to populate a website with the most frequently asked PlayStation 3 questions."
Eight games are featured as part of the PS3 website -- Eye of Judgement, Formula One 06, Genji 2, Heavenly Sword, MotorStorm, Resistance: Fall of Man, SingStar and Warhawk.
