London, March 20: Sony Corp., the world's largest maker of video-game players, may cut the price of its PlayStation 3 consoles in global markets, a Goldman, Sachs & Co. analyst said.
$600.00(US) & $825.00(EURO) and no exclusive games. They need to do what Nintendo did with the Game Cube back in 2002.
you are a poor joke. xbox360 has no exclusives, oh sorry only fps.
The playstation 3 hasn't got any exclusive games? Really....
Great, excuse me while I pop off down to the shops and buy a copy of "Resistance Fall Of Man" for nintendo Wii, and "Motorstorm" for Xbox360.
Forget about him for he`s just another fanboy who pretends and take away peoples bubbles in here ..
Sorry on that bro looks like i got the wrong fugitive..lol peace dawg!
You and I have had many disputes but I have never reported your acc. I hope you are not referring to me. Because I have never reported you or any one else in this thread. Stop acting like a BOY. we may have differnt opinions but I'm not that low.
I'm not trying to piss you off. But both of those games are just O.K. And yeah they are exclusive to PS3. Good thing too. You need rumble for a shooter and a race game. Could you imagine Rumble on Motorstorm over Xbox live "wow" you could actually feel the track as you race. R: FOM has nice weapons but no rumble what is up with that.
And no I have nothing to hide. I'm at work enjoying you guys making fan boys of your self. King Boy I call a seas fire on you. 1 more infraction and oh NO. ACHRIA you know whats up. Your a joke for real.
be careful what you and all the other 360 complainers about ps3's price wish for...
If the the ps3 does do a price cut.... you can can kiss the 360 goodbye "AGAIN"...... PERIOD....
I would not mind a PS3 price drop my self.
This is like predicting it will rain somewhere on earth today, it is not a question of will there be a price cut but when. In my opinion the PS3 will keep more exclusive games after the price cut makes it affordable for the masses. The 360 is pushing its affordability at US$399, the Wii has nailed it. More gammers that own a given system = more AAA games and exclusives for that system. Don't forget the 360 is overdue for a price cut, a PS3 drop in price will be answered by one from Microsoft. No ground will be gained in the "console war" by either side, us gammers will definitely benefit though.
If you don't think that MicroSoft would counter with a price drop you are insane. Face it, MS has the HUGE advantage this generation as thet will always be several $100's cheaper then the PS3. Imagine how many 360's will be flying off the shelf when they hit the Golden $200 pricepoint with both Halo 3 and Grand theft available!!! (And oh yeah, Devils May Cry 4! Hahaha)
the 360 is ways from dropping down to 200... (cheaper than the wii... c'mon.. it's not going to happen)
Sure the Sony is losing on each PS it sells... but don't think for a minute that MS isn't either...
With a price drop sure maybe one of the pallets out of the three that I literally trip over as soon i walk into bestbuy will sell out... but then what...
It's tied up into the overall Sony corporation economics and whether or not they have the ability and wherewithal to do that in the games business depending on the performance of their other businesses. From a hardware cost perspective that would be extremely painful for them because there's no question that the PlayStation 3 is a very expensive piece of consumer electronics because of the choices that they've made with Blu-ray and Cell and so forth. Logically, I would be very surprised if they cut the price, but if Sony starts to worry about the prospects of PlayStation 3, particularly as Microsoft is going to deliver Mass Effect, Project Gotham Racing 4, Halo 3, Lost Odyssey and so on this year... I mean who knows what sort of desperate acts you might see.
If you see what sony is doing now, it's about production cost reduction. The move to software BC and 65nm cell chips reduces production cost. Then the ramped up UK ps3 pricing will help sony make back some money.
So i think they are doing this to eventually break a price cut for the ps3 just before christmas this year. A price cut can cost sony money, so thats why they're trying to make back money now. But a price cut HAS to be done because there are so many people waiting for the ps3 to get a price cut so they can buy it. And in the mean time, 360 and wii will probably be in the better situation.
Put it this way if sony dont drop the price for the ps3 ill never buy one,theres no way i would fork out £425 for a console,especially when most of the games are multi platform and look better on the 360,theres a few games on the ps3 i wouldn't mind playing but not for £425,the 360 costs £199 now here in the UK,so why the fook would anybody spend £425 on the ps3 is beyond me..........
The price of ps3 doesn´t need to be as low as the price for 360. Ps2 was always more expensive than xbox and still people bought it over xbox. However, they should lower the price, at least a bit.
the ps2 was always cheaper moron the xbox cost more, oh and i doubt this is true they had this rumored before and then they said not till 09 if they do have a price drop it will probley be in europe because it cost like 800 dollars american to buy it their
The PS2 was $300.00. The price on the Xbox was droped to $300.00 in one year. Then the PS2 droped to $250.00 1st.
The PS2 with online add -on HDD add on was close too $500.00 at the 2000 launch of the PS2.
because i really doubt this.
