MCV: Platform holder rules out announcement from its 'blockbuster' promises
why should they with LBP coming out and we know there is going to be a bundle with the system. Then with a Resistance 2 bundle shortly after.
Can they even afford to cut the price ? I know they are not making profits with the ps3.
...*blinks* Err...so why are they currently outselling the competition? Does that not count as profit? Think with your brain, not you mouth. Sony is outselling the competition even without a pricecut. They'll use that pricecut when they're ready to use it. *shakes her head and wonders why she even bothers explaining*
I believe what Socomnick meant was that they are likely already selling each PS3 unit at below cost, and and further dropping the price could possibly affect their bottom line.
they are offsetting the loss on each ps3 with the profits they are making off the ps2. besides with the the the big games they have coming out that they can bundle at 4 to 500$ and they will fly of the shelves. i can see them dropping the price once the ps2 stops selling and if they drop it to around 300$ that would probably drive a bunch of the ps2 stragglers into the this gen
ps3 doesnt need no price cut
if they introduced the PS3 slim. Haven't they created a hybrid cell processor recently? And Blu-Ray components are much smaller and cheaper. This is ofcourse just a guess
price cut on november, cant announce too early.
At Christmas keep the price the same but just chuck in a free game - Motorstorm/LBP/Resistance or whatever. They get market penetration and people get a taste of some of Sonys 'big guns'.
No need for price cut now ... wait for holiday season (November announcement)
They're doing good so far so a pricecut is not needed at the moment.Microsoft did a pricecut and they *still* couldn't outsell the PS3.
Happy tha the PS3 is doing well but sad that I won't be able to get one until a pricecur >_< Damn Gas Prices.
>.< Teh gas prices are evil.
Maybe when Obama wins then the gas prices will go down. Seriously! All I need is like $2.50 / gallon for like 3 months and I'll have a PS3! >_<
I mean, I could do a better job than those guys. Hey! Maybe I should run for president! *National Anthem plays* Er, wait. I would have to be 35. Dammit!! *National Anthem keeps playing* Stop it, Juuken!
*keeps playing* ^o^
for a price cut. As we all see, the PS3 has been closely outperforming its arch rival in terms of sales since late 2007. Reason; You are getting what you pay for when you run out and drop that $399-$499 for a PS3, its a spectacular piece of hardward in ALL aspects and so it is JUST that Sonys tries to recoup for their brilliantly designed console, which is by no means cheap for them to manufactuer- Cell Tech, BR, Free PSN. Still, I do look forward to the day when more people are able to afford it because it is expensive and we all aren't able. All things in due time. My guess is that they will capitilaize on the Holiday Season at the current MSRP and then drop the price in the 2nd or 3rd qtr of 2009. Makes good sense.
