According to a website called Sony Protection Group, Sony has now confirmed that there will be a price cut. Big Retailers will cut the price down to $499.
I will just watch this till then http://badgerbadgerbadger.c... whaaaaaat for K Spanish
I think that if microsoft doesnt do the following they're making a huuuuge mistake: On the day that the ps3 price drops the 360 should be lowered at least this much (obviously all of this is just my opinion) ELITE--->$400 PRO----->$330 CORE---->$250 EDIT: And i just realized that if MS actually does this it might hurt nintendo's profits because they might have to lower the price of the wii as well. HOWEVER IT MAY BE THIS IS CERTAINLY HUGE NEWS P.S. TO ALL XBOX BROTHERS(AND SOME PS3 BROTHERS TOO BUT NO WII BROTHERS, WII SUX SORRY :-P): "YOU SCRATCH MY BACK I SCRATCH YOURS" PLEASE GIVE ME BUBBLES.
$100 is not enough!
@AKA Fact is 5 years from now all three consoles will be ridiculously cheap and most gamers will have all three - except the fanboys, of course. But here and now, there's still alot of brand loyalty out there and when the price is right, there're alot of quality games and a great net service then those owners will buy the brand they trust. I for one will eventually get all three.
...... or you can watch this http://www.weebls-stuff.com...
IN a ps3 you get:- 60 gig Hard Drive Built in Wireless Blue-tooth connectivity 4 usb 2.0 ports Memory card readers BLU-RAY DRIVE! not to mention the cell chipset etc.. It was worth the price at 600 its way worth it at 500. You get a whole lot mre future proof, standard, top of the line stuff in this puppy than you do with any other console.
sure...... BUT THAT'S STILL $500! It doesn't matter how many bells and whistles the ps3 has. I'm not paying $500 for a game console. Never have, never will. At least now they only have $200 left to go.
why do i keep on hearin that ps3 have no games from xbots?? have they been livin under the rock..im not goin to bother to list the games..lol..gettin tired of doin it..but hey if you goin to be a fanboy the ps3 for 499 is a great price and truly the elite..while the 360 try to clone it..lol..
It's still better IMO than a premium 360, even at $600. You get everything (rumble on it's way) the 360 can do and then some. IN addition to that, it is WAAAAYYY more reliable. My 360 is about to go back to the store for trade in. Don't want to risk another one dying on me. I can live w/o Gears and Halo 3.
thats what i have one and if i had the money i would buy it again....why because that machine is flippin awesome...and plus it plays blu-rays...and i can connect my bluetooth headset to play resistance online....and it can browse the internet and that new ps3 only website is pretty cool....and dont get me wrong i have a 360 2....
300 quid would be good
In the States, it's 600 USD which is about 300 GBP. You guys just get screwed 'cause Sony hates you. =)Have a nice day.=)
Well it does makes sense and perfect timing too. After Sony shows off their killer apps plus this price cut, the consumers who are holding out will be more convinced to get one compared to before.
499 is a good price for what you get... I know people are going to disagree with this, but show proof that its not. edit: someone disagreed, show me you can get the same things for a better price anywhere.
You know, I've noticed this for some time now. It seems like every PS3 thread, there's someone out there lurking in the shadows who has a weird fetish with the disagree button. I remember Bathyj. All he did was ask a question and he got a disagree lolz.
It is $480 + $100 for the microsoft wifi adapter + $199 for the HD-DVD addon + $50 for a year of Xbox Live = $829!!!!! Halo 3 The PS3 is now $499 and includes a industry standard 2.5 inch 60 gb sata drive, a bluray drive, 802.11b/g wifi, industry standard memory card reader, 4 usb 2.0 ports and industry standard bluetooth 2.0, the ability to connect up to 7 bluetooth devices, and 5 free bluray movies! Also the PS3 has gigabit ethernet. Free online access is included with the PS3. also the PS3 support 7.1 pcm sound and upscalling of all PS1/PS2 games and DVDs to 1080p. DVD upscalling on the PS3 is way better than on the xbox 360 elite. Warhawk
The Warhawk in the end was super random.
right on man....and u know some people just dont understand technology..... maybe ill buy another one....???
I can believe how much Americans moan about the price of this console. Here in the UK this machine is £425 which run through the currency converter is $856!! The PS3 is selling really well over here, not meny people care about the high price. I feel it is worth every penney.
to the x-girls on this site you will notice that they are keeping some kind of list of PS3 fans. THis doesn't sound like "kids" to me, more like microsucks viral campaign making sure it shuts people up who want to educate others about their crap console.
Ill give some bubbles...can you give me some bubbles? :D +1 for you :) drtysouf21, Rythrine, EZCheez, LeonSKennedy4Life (we broght you back to full strengh once we can do it again :D), Marona and Arsene_WANGer +1 for you too ^^
Kaneda and Charlie...I'll give you both bubbles. You guys need the ammo.
I actually just lost a bubble giving about 20 other people positive feedback. Ironic, isn't it? We could always just start another profile like SO MANY other people on this site do. It's not that hard to notice them. On topic though, does SPG saying this actually make it official. Are they any more official than us fans on this site? I want to believe it too but I will wait until I hear it straight from the horse's mouth (Phil or Kaz).
Dude...that was the funniest post I've seen all day! I gave all of you bubbles. I'm just saying...with a Heavenly Sword Avatar...you'll lose bubbles because it's a PS3 exclusive. A few people here don't seem to think those games are good enough.
So... anyone going to tell me whats the bubble for? lol
and I'll think about it. :)
Bubbles from me too. We're outnumbered, we need the ammo.
Odd though that a site like this would report it. I'll wait for bigger sites to finally say it.
agree with you. I'll wait till it becomes official. They just maybe commenting that it is official there is a $100 sale. Or some such nonsense. So lets wait and see. personally for the tech you get 600 is a good price. However I'm not about to pay for a 600 dollar console.
In this world you get what you pay for more often than not -especially - e s p e c i a l l y when it comes to electronic, mechanized, or motorized items. The PS3 is well worth $600 maybe even $700 MSRP, but to drop it to $500 is great imo. People that don't understand never will and thus will gripe. This really is good news. I just might go ahead and grab my third system.
Third? Damn you're loaded. Nwei, here's a bubble, bud. I see you could use the ammo too
i think i will also...!!!!
I think after this price cut I am gonna buy one, but I am still waiting for rumble (in box) hope they say something about it in the E3
I think the price is not enough, i understand that, but at least SONY is trying to do something about the price of the ps3.
even though you don't think the price was cut deeply enough on the PS3, you do think that it's good for SNE to actually loosen up and respond to the base. Now if we get another drop by say next Spring (April) We'll inch closer to that sweet spot where the PS3 can concentrate more on GAMESW, GAMES, GAMES and forget about pricing and rumble and such. Look like all that will be in the past by next spring, and I wonder how consumers will respond to this drop? Well, it's a start.
Not a very reliable source.
there are no troll cookies in this thread. Go feed somewhere else cookie breath. Sha! like you're buying a PS3! I call Bull$hit From a Bull$hitter Bull$hitting Cop. Beat it hack! ----------------------------- ------------------------------- @Police are Bull$hit below - Here ya go Columbo.... http://biz.gamedaily.com/in... Why the hell are you worried if it drops...you gonna buy one...or just for water cooler conversation? Why don't you just go buy one and quit sniffing around pig.
The Sony defense Group was the group who created the rumor that Gears Of War was being ported to the PS3, it got so far out of control that Epic got invovled and called the rumor Absolute BS! I think your the one in the wrong here, I make a very valid point about the source and here you are, throwing insults my way. Shows how mature you are.
I don't understand why forum posts, and unknown bias sites get approved news. They are usually fake, so why even bother posting them? To rally up 100's of fanboys?
@ the bs police. Wrong. They started no such rumour. There was a rumour that they started the rumour of the Gears of war on PS3. Get your facts right and don't insinuate.
GOOD JOB SONY, NOW 100 BUCKS MORE BY THE HOLIDAY SEASON =D
Well looks like PS3 will take this christmas for sure.
finally good Games, 1 percent failure rate, and It's PlayStation too. I see. Good call.
well they don't report false news and what they are reporting coincentally coincides with what others are saying. So i think i'll take it as it is
I am glad to here they are dropping the price, I just hope it ain't too soon for them. I know if Sony wants to pick up a good bit of market before the holiday season, then I can see why they will make this move. But I hope they are not doing it because people are crying cause it is not cheaper. For what you are getting with this machine (and I have one), it is well worth the $599 price tag. I spent $499 dollars on mine after I traded in all my PS2 hardware and a few games. That is how you stategically get the price down people!!! I just got mine last month and I am very, very happy with it!
Maybe they could throw a bundle state side, as well?
i can finally buy a PS3!,this makes me a very happy gamer!looking forward to Killzone,and Halo 3.great times ahead for all gamers!
It might be a hard road, but it might be a payoff in the future. Two good news on the most expensives console this gen: let`s all give bubbles to people: we like games!
that was fast. That has to be the fastest in history. 8 months deep. Now I just need one more price drop and Killzone PS3 (e3-05 version).
no doubt , but how much impact it will have will determined mainly by Microsoft responce to this in form of price cut. splling mistakes...................... ..........
Don't forget your 5 free blu ray movies!! Darn, wish I wouldn't have bought in so soon ;.;
Just the blu ray movies is another $100 off, how can you not buy one
I think SONY owns this cristmas, not saying 360 will not sell well, but i think ps3 is going to be on a great shape by year's end. CAN"T WAIT! PS3 N 360 are great, yep! both are great, WHY? keep on fighting.
$100 price drop is great. Certain other consoles who have been resting on their laurels for almost 2 years now haven't offered a price drop. (Extended warranties dont count.) And I expect another $100 (or at least $50) before christmas. PS as an early adoptor I dont mind this in the slightest. I know buying early I'll always pay the most, and its good for Playstation. Watch M$ follow suit now.
We're getting this news from a group that unites together to defend the PS3 with headlines like "SONY to Run Circles Around Competition"? "Blu-Ray machine hasa gone even cheaper" "if you were on planning getting a PS3, nows your time" "Usually Sony would wait a year or later to cut the price on their consoles" Hahaha! I hope that English is this guy's second language.
dont get mad
All it says is sony told us. This site is so full of sh*t, whats next? Halo 3 on ps3? EDIT: "for all of the wack fanboys that want to bash by brand identity first and react later read this first...." -You really are a defensive little prick, calm down geez. Thanks for proving my point. "SCEA when contacted for confirmation declined to comment" *from your link genius*
Don't you think Sony would have denied this if it wasn't true by now, beside this is what we've all been waiting for.
weather or not the news is fake, i think SONY is going to do something about the price of the PS3. Soon or Later.
now i can beat down on rookies in resistance to bring up my stats.. SWEEEET!
Here ya go Columbo.... http://biz.gamedaily.com/in... now scram
If that comment was at all directed at me, maybe you need to read my posts, I didn't Bash Sony or the PS3, in fact I just questioned the reliability of the source. So if I question the reliability of a source all of a sudden I am bashing the PS3 and all of Sony? I don't see how that works. I think you should calm down and talk this over without having to resort to insults.
So is this real news or just talk from some extreme fanboy's?
"SCEA when contacted for confirmation declined to comment." Call it rumor, for now.
"declined to comment" In other words it's true. If they don't deny it then it's true.
I think we should stop fighting n wait till E3. I think SONY will have something to say at E3. SO, lets wait till E3 n stop hating.
