First 500,000 Registered PS3 Owners Get Casino Royale |

If you are one of the first 500,000 people to register your PS3 on the PLAYSTATION Network after it’s March 23rd EU release, you will get Casino Royale on BD. This has been rumoured for a while now and I’m glad they are offering us Europeans a decent film, and a little sweetener, to be amongst the first 500,000 to register with the PLAYSTATION Network.

You have to use your actual PS3 to access the PLAYSTATION Network so it doesn’t apply to people like me who have registered their user IDs:

Don’t assume that because you’ve pre-registered via the website for Player ID that you will automatically be signed up for the Casino Royale Promotion. To get Casino Royale you must connect your PS3 to the network and register your console.

Good news for a change and if you look at the cost of Casino Royale, it almost takes the price of the PS3 below the £400 mark, depending on how much Casino Royale retails for and if you’re actually interested in the film.

Casino Royale offered to the first 500,000 registered EU PS3 owners

    Does this apply on those who allready have allready registrated their accounts? As soon as the pre-signup for PlayStation Network opened up for Europeans I signed up so I gotta at least be one among 500k, IF those registrations are counted for.

  • I don’t know. I’ve also registered but I think you have to use your actual PS3 to access the PLAYSTATION Network and register your PS3.

  • Here’s the press release:

    First 500,000 PS3 Registrants on PLAYSTATION®Network to be Rewarded with Casino Royale on Blu-ray

    London, 12th February 2007 – Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announced today that, in addition to the extensive line-up of games, the first 500,000 purchasers of PLAYSTATION®3 who registered on the PLAYSTATION®Network would receive a Blu-ray disc movie of Casino Royale, starring James Bond newcomer Daniel Craig.

    Casino Royale, which has already grossed more than $560 million at the box office worldwide, and has established itself as the most successful Bond film of all time will debut on a 50GB dual-layer Blu-ray disc encoded in MPEG-4 AVC. With a ground breaking collection of added-value features in 1080P High Definition visual quality, and with uncompressed audio features for the best possible audio experience, Casino Royale not only demonstrates the exceptional visual quality of Full 1080P High Definition movies on Blu-ray disc, but is the perfect vehicle to highlight the broader entertainment credentials of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

    Explaining the offer, Darren Carter, VP Brand and Consumer Marketing said, “The PLAYSTATION®Network unlocks the broad range of interactive entertainment features of PLAYSTATION 3. It’s easy to set up, offers free online gaming, has great tools for staying in touch with friends and family, and includes a wide variety of content for download through the PLAYSTATION®Store.”

    “All this, and more, will enable users to experience a whole new world of interactive entertainment, and that is why we are offering the phenomenal incentive of Casino Royale, on Blu-ray disc, to PS3 owners who register on the PLAYSTATION®Network. Casino Royale not only makes the most of the features and capabilities of the Blu-ray format, but is one of the most exciting and entertaining movies to debut on Blu-ray this year.”

    And another 500,000 Blu-ray converts are formed. This is really a smart move on Sony’s part.

  • This is the most logical thing Sony could do. It’s a big name film, it will show off the Blu-ray format to people who are sceptical to it without having to buy a BD movie.

    It will also be interesting to see if sales of HDTVs increase from March onwards aswell. I will definitely get a 1080p HDTV with my PS3, when I do get it. No 1080p HDTV no PS3.

  • I wouldnt be too sad, if I did get it, but I still dont know, where to preoders my PS3. The offer sucks (still forced PSP bundle) and the “other” etailers… I dont know about yet.

    Lets wait and see…

  • Burten

    Great idea! Lets just hope I’ll be among the first 500.000 😉

    this is awesome. they gave Talladega Nights out for free, now this. that’s like $60 of free movies. combine that with free online play, the PS3 is actually a really good deal.

  • nice!!! much better than getting talladega nights IMHO 🙂 so at least you guys get SOMEthing for having to wait so long!
