He should have come clean on that one. But hell, $100 less on a Ps3. Looking good. And probably a further drop by Christmas. You lucky ba$tard who have been waiting for the price drop.

As for killer app....Warhawk, Socom, Uncharted & HS are all going to play their part in increasing sales but the first killer app should be .....drum roll..... Little Big Planet.

GS: Are price cuts going to follow in other regions, like Japan and Europe?

JT: This is just a North American announcement.

GS: A lot of European gamers think they're getting a raw deal, with the PS3 already proportionally costing more than anywhere else, and now no news of a price drop for the region. What would you say to them?

JT: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is working very, very hard to bring added value to the European consumers. There will be announcements coming from them, but I personally cannot comment right now, I'm afraid.

mmm... i am waiting :P

he doesn't say no, he just says that there aren't any announcements at this time you know what that normally meens :)

Yeah thats why i'm so hyped up, the moment that thing drops i'm getting it!

That question about asking 10 different people and getting 10 different answer, I have a feeling most of those answer would be GTA, I think hes making a bold statement with that one, just like when he said I bet there wont be any PS3's on the shelves past 10min or something like that, and he put money on it, and alot of people start posting pics of PS3's sitting there for that amount of time, which was another bold statement made by him. Hopefully his plans do work out.

JT: We've had different competitors over the years, and we've never been first to market, or been the cheapest. We believe in a 10-year life cycle. If you spend all your time thinking about your competitors and what they're doing, then you lose your own path.

Translation...... Were getting owned and Pawned

I guarantee this guy has a 360 in his living room.

Your avatar is real appropriate. Be real proud of yourself, starting the flame war in yet another thread.

Truth hurts...

Just my opinion

Azures3439d ago

From his statement you gathered your intellectually stimulating opinion, even though its the truth that they have never been the first to market and still manage to annihilate any competition in each generation over the console's lifespan.
