Rumor: Sony Price Dropping 40GB PS3 Model This Weekend

From Kotaku:

According to a Blockbusters' memo leaked to us today Sony is permanently dropping the price of the 40GB model of the Playstation 3 starting Sunday.

The story is too old to be commented.

I still can't believe you reply to yourself. Dude, chill out. Go outside and get some sun.

Sanzee3253d ago

How about supporting your own console instead of hating on other peoples. I can't even tell who is a Sony fan or a Microsoft fan.

Now days the only way to tell is to see who's trying to hurt their rivals' "feelings" the most.

>_<

you call it a fail for MS but Sony is LOSING money big time. regardless...."Sony is permanently dropping the price of the discontinued 40GB model of the Playstation 3 starting Sunday."

whoopty shiit...its discontinued.

Sony is the fail. Fire sales to keep up only bringing their loses to an all new high. Thank god for the ps and ps2 aka "PS3's life support"

CLEAR! BOOM!!

ShadowMan, you should know by now that if you follow Sony then that means you can't understand common logic:

Looks like Sony is getting desperate to get people to buy the FailStation 3. Gotta start cutting the price to try and get people to buy it. I wouldn't touch a PS3 with a ten foot pole unless its for sale for about $20, then maybe i'd think about buying it just so I could throw it off a bridge.

cp683253d ago

Ps3 dropping price just in time for the greatest months the ps3. What an amazing Christmas it will be! Sorry microsoft, you had done great these past years, but sony is back

chaosatom3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

If the price didn't drop, then they will Rip Sony apart as always in their next article based on something they heard which is not even Sony.

I know a price drop is coming but I think around LBP or resistance.

Eventhough Sony says that they won't drop the price......They Will!

Jamie Foxx3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

i said it would happen to clear the 40g machines and i got 46 DISAGREES... guess from rival console owners, lets stop the gangwarfare before theres bloodshed

HighDefinition3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

LBP + price drop, is FULL of WIN.

Me and you both Jaime.

Jamie Foxx3253d ago

the 80g will have a price reduction just intime for the christmas rush

watch the disagrees again lol

HighDefinition3253d ago

I agree.

My crystal ball, said the same thing this morning.

LOL.

sonarus3253d ago

I agree. LBP + price drop is full of win

Dannagar3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

It's a liquidation sale to make room for the 80 gig PS3's that will replace them, just like what Microsoft did with the 20 gig 360. Once they are out, they are out. It's good news while it lasts (for those that still don't have a PS3).

Lifendz3253d ago

CAN YOU FEEL IT!!! LET ME HEAR IT!!! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!!

Now is the time. 299.99 for a friggin PS3. Wow. 360 forced their hand with the 199.99 price point. At 299.99 the PS3 is right there and affordable for the mass market. Good stuff.

gaffyh3253d ago

I think it is a clearance sale. Most likely they will release another SKU

mikeslemonade3253d ago

I haven't seen a 40GB in the wild for a while. It's only temporary. PS3 does not need a price cut right now because it's going to sell out during fall and winter anyway. A smart price cut is during the spring to increase sales for the spring and summer.

FantasyStar3253d ago

..because it's Kotaku that's the source. I don't believe **** from them if it came out their backside.

eagle213253d ago

PS3 is truly the system to own this year and the next 5 years. No doubt about it.

himdeel3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

...never seen a 40 gig PS3 in a retail store on the shelf EVER. I saw one one that was sold back to the Gamestop once around tax time, but it was out of box. Granted I don't hang out at retail stores randomly asking or looking for a 40 gig PS3 but still I just think it's weird that I'm thinking back and just don't recall seeing one . So this rumor sounds WAY more suspect then some other price drop rumors I've heard.

whoelse3253d ago

Well it's a clearance for the announced 80GB version.

BabyStomper50003253d ago

"The price drop, which was verified by calls to a number of Blockbuster stores, will drop the 40GB model to [$360]"

Three hundred and sixty dollars? Coincidence?

Bubble Buddy3253d ago

If they to drop the price to 360, that's pretty ironic :p.

bushfan3252d ago

New retail $359.99 and new PRP say $299.99...so what is it?

Liquid_Ocelot3252d ago (Edited 3252d ago )

I got me today a PS3 for $400 flat(not tax, PR is not chargin tax 'till tomorrow @ 11:59pm for some flood that destroyed lots of houses, so the governor said no tax 'till SAT... I got me the 80Gb w// MGS4, Star Wars TFU & BF:BC for like... $500 something i think i didn't even spent $550. PS3 is INCREDIBLE, i didn't even knew it had so many things, im just like... it's just WOW

Sounds like desperation, they'd probably have better luck dropping the price in japan not the US

Especially after they stated over and Over that they wouldnt, its seems Sony cant help lying to its costumers and shareholder

Meus Renaissance3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

What are you talking about Omega, I don't understand what you're saying?
