Foxconn production: Not enough for Wii, plenty for PS3? reports: "Taiwan's DigiTimes is reporting today that Foxconn Precision Components is set to "begin volume production of PS3 in the second half of 2007 in order to meet strong demand in the upcoming peak season." Foxconn, Foxconn ... why does that name sound so familiar? Oh yeah, they're the company that sources said had production facilities that were "insufficient to meet persistent strong sales of the [Wii]" a few weeks ago, leading Nintendo to search for additional production partners."

The story is too old to be commented.

Is it possible we might be seeing a price drop come holiday season? Now I know Sony has said they won't think about it until a couple years from now, but I think things haven't picked up as much as they wanted it to since they said that.

I mean, this, along with the cut of the 20 gig model, means they will really be laying into the 60gig production line. Maybe Sony is lightening up?

FOXCONN I'm not so sure.
