PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid Bundles

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Wow, it has already been nearly a month since I added some news to the site. Basically I have been ignoring the site a lot, but not totally. I just needed a break.

I have been adding some more Wii Fit’s to the site, but also Playstation 3 Metal Gear Solid Bundles. As a result, I wanted to post to make sure all were aware that the Playstation 3 alerts are being sent via the NowInStock Email System or the RSS feed. If you want the email alerts, you will have to signup to each store you wish to receive alerts for. I setup the system this way to ensure that you only got alerts for the products you wanted. The bad part is I do not have the functionality coded yet to auto add you, if wanted, to other stores as I add them to the tracker. In the last day I have added the following stores:

  • Sony Style
  • Circuit City
  • Best Buy

I also added Walmart a while back. These, accompanied with the already listed Amazon, takes the total stores tracked for the Metal Gear Solid bundle to five stores in all. I noticed that GameStop had the bundle on their site as well, but there is  no way I am adding it whenever they are charging $554 dollars for it.

Well, that about sums it up. Hopefully you will see new features down the line as I begin to prepare for the next holdiay season. And as always, if you have any products you wish NowInStock would track, PLEASE do not hesitate on sending them in!

Got my FragFX Controller today!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

Last Thursday I received my own alert that the FragFX controller for the PS3 was in stock at Amazon. I went ahead and ordered it up. I have been waiting for this one for sometime now. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am a PC gamer at heart and the transition to console gaming has been at best lackluster when it comes to first-person shooter games. My aiming skills are greatly diminished by the Sixaxis controller. I am hoping this new controller will help to alleviate this issue, but from user reviews I have been reading it doesn’t look to promising. Today, the FragFX was delivered on time, as always, from Amazon. After I get a chance to play around with it, hopefully I will be able to drop a comprehensive review on the blog letting all know what I think of it.

PS3 Controller FragFX Being Tracked

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

I have added the FragFX Controller to the list under PS3 Tracker. If you would like to be notified of when this product comes in stock at either GameStop or Amazon, just sign up for the email alerts. Currently, I am running the check every 60 minutes.

PS3 Price Drop, Blu-Ray Wins the Format War

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

First was the elimination of the 20GB model, which from the onset was a horrible idea… Who the hell would want a system without a wireless controller and 40GB less storage space for only $100 less. Then came the price drop on the 60GB to $499!

The move by Sony was initiated by a variety of factors I am sure. One of their claims was due to production line improvements obviously with the Blu-Ray. Second has to be to increase sales. Third had to be the 360 Elite and it’s $479 price tag. And lastly, to increase Blu-Ray sales.

The first reason I can buy for sure… as issues and errors diminish this decreases your costs to produce a unit. (more…)

Best Buy Error

BestBuy.com went off because they removed the “Due to limited quantities…” banner. Will we be seeing them online soon at Best Buy?

QVC Taken Down

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

I have taken down the QVC link. I was in formed by one of our users that their site is wrong. He called QVC, and they informed him there was no more stock. If this happens to get fixed, please let me know, and I will make it active again for others.
