Christina Warren of Mashable on PS3 adding NFL Sunday Ticket:
PS3 owners who don’t have DirecTV can subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket for $339.95. The price might sound steep, but it’s only $5 more than what DirecTV charges for the package.
Wait, Sunday Ticket is how much? I am a DirecTV subscriber and a sports fan and I didn’t even know that. Most non-sports fans must think this is insane.
At $10 a game, this means you must watch two out of market games a week to get your money’s worth. With basic cable1 you can watch 4-6 games a week, sometimes 7 later in the season with NFL Network. That means that typically you can see at least 1/3 of all games in a given week. Unless you live in a market that isn’t that of your favorite team I can’t believe people pay for this.
