Finally PS3 officially launch in Malaysia

Good news for all PS3 fans out there. I just got an email from SONY, it says PS3 will officially launch in Malaysia this month.

When : September 20th, 2008 (Saturday)

Where : 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Main entrance, Ground Floor (new wing)

Time : 11.30 AM

The great thing about this launching is that the first 3 people in the line to buy a Sony PS3 on the day of the launch will get a RM1000 cash voucher that can be used for their next Sony product purchase.
4th – 20th – RM500 cash voucher
21st – 50th – RM300 cash voucher
51st – 100th – RM150 cash voucher

I’m sure you all wondering how much is the official price for PS3. It’s only RM1699 RM1799, reasonable enough for this elegant design console with cool graphic. It’s not just a next-gen game console, it’s also a high definition movie machine. The price includes :

1x 80GB Sony PlayStation 3 Console
1x Soul Calibur IV
1x PS3 Game (selected titles)
1 year warranty

RM1699 RM1799 is a very good deal. Why I said so? Now ‘Sungai Wang type’ they offer a console with a 40GB HDD with only Rm1300, not included with PS3 original game and of course the warranty isn’t from Malaysia because it depends on where the supplier got the console from. It could be from Japan, USA, China or Singapore. So, it will be uneasy for you to claim the warranty if anything happen to your console.

In the event of PS3 official launch, SONY Malaysia will be holding 2 competitions. A Sony 24hour gaming marathon and a Sony Game Girl Competition. You could stand a chance to win some cool prizes. For Sony 24hour gaming marathon a Sony BRAVIA TV, a Sony PlayStation 3and loads of Sony goodes to be won. Interested participants must register online at Sony Malaysia’s website before 18th September 2008 and must be above 18 years old to take part. As for the Sony Game Girl Competition you could win yourself a trip to Hong Kong! Register before 10th September 2008 and on the day of the event, showcase your talents to the crowd and you may represent Malaysia for the Asia Game Show 2008 and win a PS3!

Sony Game Girl Competition

Champion – 3D2N flight & accommodation to Hong Kong to represent Malaysia in the Asia Game Show (AGS) + 1 unit of PS3
1st runner up – 1 unit of PS3
2nd runner up – 1 unit of PSP
Consolation – Lots of Sony goodies to be won!

So, hurry up and grab it on the 20th Sept ’08 at 1 Utama and maybe you could be the lucky winner for the RM 1000 cash voucher. Who knows? I’m definitely going to this official launch. I’m getting a Sony PS3 for Harry (*wink*wink). He’s been wanting it for years. Can’t wait for 20th Sept and see the big smile on his face..teehee 😉 And oh, if you don’t want to queue up you can always make your pre-order from Sony Malaysia website and you’ll get a Limited Edition PS3 bag and a Soul Calibur IV CD holder. And if you think you’re good enough in playing games don’t forget to participate in the competition. This is the first Sony official game competition in Malaysia, don’t miss out this opportunity. Well, have fun shopping you guys! It’s worth it. Definitely worth it!

  4. I researched this TV by reading reports from a major consumer magazine and the reviews in Amazon. I also looked at the TVs from Samsung in the local stores. But locally this model was very hard to find. I did find next model down in 52 inch and comparables in the smaller sizes.
    Several reviews said the picture was “stunning” or “spectacular”. Well we have owned this TV for 3 weeks now and the picture is truly stunning. As I read in one review, it is like you are on the set watching the characters and action.
    Even our standard DVDs look much better than with our old LCD TV.
    Excellent picture from Sattelite, Standard DVD and Over-the-air sources.
    Simple setup and adjustments. There were minimal tweaks to set things up.
    (but then I only have it hooked up to my home theatre receiver and OTA cable).

    – slow to power on to picture, delays in picture appearing when changing channels or sources. (but not a major issue.
    – Screen is more reflective than most LCDSs I have seen but not as much as Plasma or CRT Tvs. The brightness of the picture does overcome this in my situation but I would check it out if you are using it in a very bright room.

    If I had to do it all over again I would definitely buy this TV.
    I bought it from Amazon and the price was much less than what I could find locally. The delivery went smoothly.
