As if you couldn’t guess what our Ask PSLS this week would be based off what we did last time, we decided to ask everyone the following question: Do You Think The PlayStation 3 Will Get a Price Drop to $199.99 at E3 2013? - PSLS
Drop it like it's hot.
Sony got the "one up" bug exampled by rolling out the PS4 and announcing a new Gran Turismo for this year, so with that said, anything's possible.
Well they should give it a price drop now that people will need to keep re buying the PS3 along with the PS2 just so they can maintain BC. All that along with having a PS4, which too would need to be replaced in case of failure. I would think PS3 would need a drastic price cut. This is specially true for people who would like to maintain their full library of PS games, maintaining 3 consoles cant be cheap.
A better question is will it ever hit $99, considering Cell and Blu Ray prices.
i believe a price cut will come for fall not sure if sony will do it at E3 also a Uncharted Bundle GOD OF WAR bundle should be made available to get both series more sales and give people incentive to buy ps3, maybe a $249 bundle with all 3 UC games and 3 Months of PSN:plus
I clicked because of the picture, and no I'm serious got a good laugh at that pic
-____- The chick in the background is not naked... OT: Should be it's been sitting around the $250 mark with some games for a while now.
More likely at Gamescom.
200€ less than the PS4s rumored priced. Sounds about right.
Possibly, they already have a pretty decent price point and software that people will want, I'd see them doing some bundles, but I'm not sure they'll drop it to $199 this year.
Absolutely...although I think PS3 could be sold at a loss at this price ($199) if done too soon. Anyone know if Sony is making profit on PS3 yet, and as of when? Please :) Maybe Sony should wait until E3 2014 when PS3 is making more healthier profits. Then drop it to $149/$99. There's life in the old girl yet :)
According to this, making profit since June 2010:
@raWfodog Thanks a lot for that link. Then any time after E3 2013 is a good time for $199 PS3. Nice!
I'm holdin out to see if the Vita drops in price.
I think we'll see it at some point in the Summer.
I'm pretty sure the PS3 and PS Vita will both get price drops. The question is how much? But only E3 will tell.
Hoping for a Vita price drop from Sony.
Definitely a price-drop in the future for the system.
No. It will get a price drop at E3 2014. E3 2013 is for Sony to announce PS4's price of $299.
Keep dreaming Dante
I think it will get a price drop this year. Either at the upcoming PS4 event, or at E3. It's about time for another price drop since the PS3 is still the most expensive out of the 3 current gen consoles. Maybe even the Vita will get some of that good price drop loving.
I hope so, I'd like to get my son his own ps3. $199 would be nice.
Toy's r us have the Infamous bundle for $199
Most likely, yes. Not that I particularly care though. I'll be spending my money on the PS4 :)
I have seen the slim 160 gig for $198 at a few stores. As for the super slim its at a decent price a little more off the top would be nice for the price.
PS2 was $150 since mid-2004 all the way after the 360 even came out. Microsoft nor Sony care about number of units sold as much as the actual profit made in total but this gen has definitely had more expensive systems than the last one. Does anyone have the manufacturing costs for the super slim PS3?
Maddens Raiders + 19h ago Sony got the "one up" bug exampled by rolling out the PS4 and announcing a new Gran Turismo for this year, so with that said, anything's possible. ------------- Hi Maddens! :) Sony announced GT6 for this year?! For the PS3 or PS4? Got a link please? By the way, when do we play some more GT5 online together? I'll try to drive like a gentleman this time, I swear!
