PSXExtreme: Wow...who says price isn't a primary obstacle for consumers in regards to new video game consoles?
In all honesty, we thought it'd be a closer race between "the games" and "the lower price tag" in regards to last week's poll question, but it wasn't even close: our readers say the most appealing aspect of the PS3 Slim is the cheaper price. With the advent of this new model, the default PS3 dropped $100 and droves of people have rewarded Sony for this savvy - albeit somewhat late - marketing move. Many of the hardcore gamers will be quick to say, "eh, it really is all about the games; who wants a console that doesn't have titles I want to play, no matter how cheap it is?" Well, that's a good point but in the end, the cost is always a consideration (unless you're wealthy).
