What's the Effect of a PS3 Slim?

EndSights:

The PlayStation 3 Slim has been rumored for quite some time and if we were betting men, we'd place money down that you'll be seeing them hit store shelves before the end of the year. So, if it is coming out–what effect will it have for PlayStation 3 sales? Independently, two videogame analysts don't see much impact at all.

a price reduction would help sales, no doubt about it.
they wouldn't even need a Slim... just a price reduction of the current SKU's

im buying one! i already have a ps3 but i would buy another one if its slim and sexy.

and im sure im not the only one!

also theres people who wouldnt buy a ps3 because they knew sony was going to make a slim.

Definitely. Price is the only thing that's keeping the PS3 back.

How about a PS3 slim with a lower price (price cut)... That sounds the best deal to me. Also, throw in GT5 along with it and FF13 in Japan and see PS3 swipe the floor.....

Last year PS3 consistently outsold the 360 until 360 got a price cut later during holiday season and really picked up pace eventually outselling PS3 by a huge margin in the last 3 months enough to compensate for the 8 months lead PS3 had over the 360.... Similar thing will happen if a PS3 gets a cut, but even bigger things will happen if a SLIM drops as more people get attracted to it. Also, GT5 is the perfect launch title companion for the SLIM.... The 360 isn't far ahead this year and so that 0.1 million or whatever lead is easily beatable..... But Sony's main concern is to sell at least 13 million units till March 2010 and GT5+GOW3+PS3 SLIM+ PS3 price cut is the only way the number can be attained.

It's simple... Sony here isn't competing to sell more consoles than the 360... It's looking at the bigger picture. Beating the 360 with a price cut will be really easy, but If a Wii gets a price cut, then it's sales will also increase..... In short, PS3 is targeting the Wii more than the 360 this winter.

Regardless of whether or not the slim exists, or ever will exist (ok.. more like "when"), the price of the current model should drop... a lot... and fast.

Yep, it's just a matter of if and when Sony can afford it.
