"There are various rumors popping up about various forms and prices for PS3, and Sony is swiftly going about the business of denying them."
we've all learned this and to me, this is no diffferent.
so expect a 299.99 ps3 soon.
sony really aint playing for 2008 they want to demolish all competition, a 299 ps3 will most certainly do that especially now people are looking for blu ray players after the demise of hd-dvd
Welcome to $299.99 at the end of the month!
If it does, it will be a lot easier to talk family into buying one. I might just buy one for some of my family since it's tax return time.
so there in denial. then its true wonder when it will hapen
This would help PS3 sales SO MUCH... they actually would be kinda close to the competition! And all the games coming.
I am a bit skeptical about the pricedrop on the 40gb, but it might happen.
That would be a nice price.
Not a chance of it hitting £150 over here, that will put it inline with the wii. Expect £199/£225 the cheapest, however £249 will be more relistic over here since its selling well
Because American may see it for $299 doesn't mean other countries will. They are already paying way more than what Americans pay for it (this is also including the games).
40 Gig for $299
Make an emulator available on the PSN to download for B/C.
Reintroduction of the 60 gig for $399
Sony is dropping the 80GB and thus only having the 40GB with no BC, that sucks.
Also what am I missing, why are you idiots saying a 299 PS3 is coming at the end of the month, they just said that was not happening.
Because they denied the 80GB merely days before they announced it at E3.
A price drop for te PS3 would help system sales. This would be great for the consumer and PS3 Fans! For those who said it will help them crush the competition, if Sony drops the price for the PS3, MS will certainly drop the price of the 360. I think Ninty will keep the same price for the Wii. Sony and MS will go tit for tt like this for the for seeable future. The only thing that helps MS is that they have a lead on system and hardware sales over the PS3 due the the 1 year head start, but when you ar in the kead it is easier to make adjustments.
With that said, what this really means is better prices for us, the gamers!!! So Jump In or Play Beyond, or play with you Wii (ha ha) either way you can not go wrong.
When does a company ever say a rumor is true? This is stupid. All companies deny rumors. Don't see how this is "news".
Well yeah if they release it early then their stocks won't raise in price. You have to make it a major move to make your stocks skyrocket.
The US$299 40G Ps3.
I'm going to say it now - another price drop is coming very soon.
After observing how the 1.2 year old Ps3 has been rapidly progressing in the midst of major competition from the Wii & xbox 360 and seeing the trends and action taken by Sony(including denials, denials, denials), the $299 Ps3 will easily be on the market within 6 months if not earlier.
The Duel Shock 3 controller will be going worldwide soon and the big AAA games are coming as well as the likely surprise hit, HOME.
But most importantly, the Ps3 needs a larger install base of GAMERS. This is especially important due to BD winning the HD war and all those pesky HD-only fans buying the Ps3 as a media player not for games - likely contributing to the less than stellar games sales.
Sorry guys, for repeating myself about this but it's all obvious.
But the question is, will Sony continue with the two console policy(cheap & expensive Ps3)?
It makes sense to do a price drop, I just bought one a month ago.lol
i predicted it! sony is discontinueing the 80 gig ps3 cause it cost too much to make still it will remain with the 40 gig thus completeing they're consistant cycle in system releases.
PS1 original released with redwhiteyellow in the back, link port,expansion port.
revised additions removed the easy redwhite and yellow hook up allowing for a propietary multilink made by sony (more money in sony pockets yay)
Link port was later removed as well as the expansion slot, nearly no companies supported the link abbility (something like 40 or so games) and the expansion slot was NEVER used by sony or any one else except cheat device makers and modders.
Ps2 was released with 2 usb ports, ilink, HDD port...ect ilink was eventually removed cause pretty much nothing used it, hdd port was removed with the excuse of every one that wants one all ready has one...ect it was removed because many of the games that supported it never came here or came here with the function removed.
It is common course for sony to promise the world with their system throw in the kitchen sink then by the 3rd revision remove every thing and not deliver on over half they're promises.
