From IGN:

The last few weeks have been turbulent for PlayStation 3 users. As a result of the PlayStation Network's prolonged outage, gamers can't play online, purchase games off of the PlayStation Store, or access their friends list. In essence, all PlayStation 3 consoles around the world are in offline mode.

But could it be that this outage and the PR fiasco that surrounded it has hurt PlayStation 3 sales?

Some members of retailer GameStop's Power-Up Rewards Program received an e-mail today outlining a new deal that will net purchasers $100 off a brand-new PlayStation 3. As a "members-only exclusive," the e-mail states that 160 and 320 GB PS3s can be purchased using a special coupon members have access to, cutting $100 off the purchase price.

Gamers who receive this e-mail will have access to the special coupon by logging into the GameStop website and consulting the Active Offers section of the page. According to the e-mail, this deal runs through Sunday, May 29th.

-----------------------

Note that not every PowerUp member received this email, only certain ones, I myself did not. However, why not get a new PS3 if you can get it for only $200?

True. I guess you can try to sell it. But the other question is how many points will you need to purchase the coupon (that is how the power up rewards work).

That last part wasn't for you. That was for anyone reading this who is thinking they get a free coupon. Gamespot forum errors messed up my post.

That's the point, deals like these are aimed at a lower number of people, something like what you said, everyone is likely to use it and they have to eat that cost. Less people are likely to run out and buy a console even if they don't own one, but it still makes the program look good.

A guy at my work is running out and buying one in the morning, so some people will be taking them up on this deal. If I didn't already own a PS3 I know I would.
