Now I have no idea how legal this would, be but I am pretty sure Microsoft and Nintendo are busy finding out, but it seems like Sony is offering extra incentives to Gamestop staff to push the PS3.
For the top store in a region the manager is being given 30,000 reward points (yeah we don’t know what they are) and if you are the top manager in the entire franchise you get an extra 10,0000.
According to this flyer
Sony is sponsoring a PS3 hardware sales contest.
So the next time you pop into your local shop and ask them which console is better just remember they could be lying to win prizes…
