For many months that the most fanciful rumors circulating on the net about a price drop of the Playstation 3. But this time it seems to be confirmed as contacted by us, some wholesalers say that the price of the console Sony will soon drop! And even better, since we can announce that a new version of the console that goes out!
The official announcement of the new cheaper version of the PS3 would be made at the press conference that the Japanese giant held in Cologne at the gamescom Tuesday 18 August at 18h French time, we will cover the show and of course We also reaffirm the device that we had deployed in Los Angeles last June at E3 so you can follow the best conditions in the largest European event on video games through previews photos, video ...

Updated: Some noise corridors seem to converge towards the release of a PS3 Slim to 299 euros. Ce tarif est à prendre avec des pincettes. This rate is to take with tweezers."

this is all part of a phenomenon known as the quickening effect & it's really starting to smell like this is happening...

I personally would just like to CONFIRM that I will be spreading a rumour that PS3 slim will DEFINITELY be out next weak along packaged with GRAN TURISMO 5 & GOD OF WAR 3, you can pick this bundle up for just £150, you can count on that because I can CONFIRM that it is only a rumour I am spreading without any insider knowledge what so ever :)

The rumor is that the website is apparently confirming it. So, it IS a confirmation, in essence. But since we can't trust it it's a rumor. idk how to explain it well enough in text but whatever.

Well well it now looks like the PS3 cost 240-270 by these reports.

Sony has wrestled down build costs for the console by about 70 percent, Sony CFO Nobuyuki Oneda said in an earnings call this week.

"The cost reductions since we introduced the PS3 are very substantial, and on schedule," the exec said, as reported by consumer site GameSpot. "We don't disclose how much of the PS3 cost reduction was specifically achieved during the past two years. But that is on schedule."

He continued, saying "roughly speaking", Sony has reduced the cost to build the console by "about 70 percent."

Seriously this is a good thing and activison doesn't have to make good on their threat. I mean it's not like people where rushing to buy one any way. This will halp and if you are a PS3 fan then you should be happy. This is not bad news at all.

I sold my PS3 60GB today for $100 more than a new one costs (with six old games) All so I can get a new slim with a new warranty soon.
