Chinese Website Hexun.com is reporting that Sony is indeed planing a $100 price drop that is set to happen in April or May at the latest.
THat would be awesome
$100 price cut + sony saying that this year will be their most aggressive year for marketing in their history. along with KZ2, uncharted2 etc. DAAYUM!
2This contradicts reports earlier in the week that stated the price drop would happen within the next few days." - gamefront Did hexun.com state that a price cut should have happened a few days ago? If they did then it looks like they do not have a track record.
At $299 shoot I might buy another one. One for the fam room and one for the bedroom. 360 will stay in the family room. My Wii will stay in the drawer where it's been.
this is from china so I'd assume the the price drop they are talking about is for china sony has said there will be no price drop soon in the states
Good news for all those 360 owners that will be drooling of Killzone 2.
hopefully more people pick it up
still gonna be the most expensive console.
well...it should be the most expensive considering everything you get. Then free online ontop of that.
why would anyone be drooling over a generic shooter like KZ2. Not likee there isnt enough of them on all systems
Only haters won't. *EDIT* Meant as a reply to 2.1
I am not getting a KZ2 copy and i am not a hater. There's only a few games that i am interested on PS3. And Kz2 its not one of them... to tell you the truth there's only like ... 2 games that maybe i get them. 1 its GTurismo5 2. I still don't have a clue but surely an id's games title (whispers)Doom 4... uhhhh i have a Gaming PC with the i7 Extreme WHAT THE HELL im thinking ! so i am going to be ok for that Doom 5 experience with my PC. Well the reality is that i am buying it for the Blu-Ray. Yup i am just buying it for the Blu-Ray player. There is no way i am buying multiplatform games for PS3 and i really enjoy my online experience on Xbox Live and PC.
You are hating just by bringing up the fact of Killzone 2. Get over yourself dude. Join the dark side :)
With someone with the screenname "XLiveGamer" you aren't fooling anyone.
Yeah cause screen names mean anything at n4g /Your Name
same I'm waiting for it to hit $250 as well since I just bought a 40" hdtv. I really hate pubbing shooters and kz2 is no exception. If there were competitive leagues for it. I'd probably be more excited about getting it sooner. seriously, competitive leagues take an fps to a whole different level of online gaming. That's when the adrenaline really starts flowing.
Your account is only a couple days old and you're probably just trolling anyway.
And people without jobs.
im time for E3 in June.
I'm guessing mid-April isn't a bad time to drop the price.
Call of duty 4, Killone 2, LittleBigPlanet and Modern Warfare 2. We usally own on all games, when we play like a team. We have been gaming since NES.
I have some information on when the price drop is happening/what they're going to do in the near future,but I won't share it with you guys since you won't believe me.
Please don't. We don't want/need your top secret info, dawg.
They shouldn't say stuff like this without confirming if it is true or not. MS executives have started to throw themselves off roof tops. This is just a rumour. I kid. Would be great news though
"Well the reality is that i am buying it for the Blu-Ray." well the reality is why your buying a ps3 is to play game's like killzone and other game's or u could just buy a bluray player stop hating and get yourself the 2009 game of the year
Hello Killzone 2
100 dollars seems kind of drastic to me, so if it becomes a reality but that would make the PS3 more attractive to me. Also buying it for Blu-Ray.
"Yup i am just buying it for the Blu-Ray player. " You know, there are blu-ray players for $250 now. So why wait for a $150 drop, then waste your money on a (roll eyes) PS3 system, Just to get one game(GT5)????!! Thats almost Retarded.... Its like me wasting my money on a 360, just to get gears of war 2 and.....ummmm, hmmm..... what else...... well anyways, you get my point!
Well there already producing and seeing the benefits of 45nm Cell and RSX, so they said they would pass saving on when they could do so.
That's a drastic drop. I would expect something more along the lines of 50 bucks at the most. That's 300 bucks chopped off since launch. You'd basically be getting the gaming capabilities at a steal for that price. I'll believe it when I see it, but if true, then the PS3 would be more than worth the price of admission. Actually, I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The PS3 at 399 seems like the right price for what you are getting, and I don't think it needs a drop anytime soon. But business is business, and I don't run the company.
