George Harrison Says Sony Can't Afford Another Price-Cut

Sony's PS3 price-cut has been good news for the company. Super, really, considering the negativity they've been drowning in for the past six months. But not everyone's happy with the news. Nintendo's George Harrison isn't happy. In fact, he's positively indifferent:

A $100 price drop won't make a difference. Can Sony afford a $200 price drop? I don't think so.

Xbox 360 core $200-$250 would make Wii look less attractive

what do you guys think ?

But you know the Wii can drop to $200 in a heart beat.

Drop Wii Sports and the console costs $210 just like in Japan.

wii can definetly drop in a heart beat plus i think the wii and the xbox cater to completely different audiences

totaly agree nice cuppa BUT

The "guts" of the Wii is using gamecube hardware, so by now that hardware is cheap.

I'm sure the cost of the wii is pretty cheap to mass produce by now.

But then again, Sony "PR" can say well the PS2/ps3 can atleast run dvd's and your consoles future is riding on a controller.

Or they are going to lose many of you people had a wii since christmas and it is just sitting there collecting dust?

I love my wii but i want some bad assed games...not some mini game crap!

Show me some online multiplayer on the wii! If i can play wii sports 2 online with 10 other people i would be in heaven! And i do not want to enter in a friend code...i want buddy lists like on the PS3 or Xbox 360. This is the 21st Century not the late 90s!!

ive had the wii since launch, and i find when i do play it, its for gamecube games, Skies of Arcadia, Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime 1 and 2. And am gonna pick up the new paper mario, RE4 and umbrella chronicles but beyond that i dont know. but its nice when ppl are over.
Interestingly thats the same thing with the PS3, i want to purchase it for God Of War 1 2. The Silent Hill series, and Kingdom hearts. The only reason i dont rebuy a ps2 is for the Bluray player and the 1 or two games on ps3 i want to play. like Stranglehold, simply cause it comes with HardBoiled and Lair.
Now, its all about 360.

I dont think Wii is going to drop its price any time soon....heck, it will drop its like.. 2009

That is what he thinks but he know how advanced the PS3 is compared to the Wii that he believes that Sony can not afford another price cut any time soon. In my opinion we will see another price cut just before the holidays. It might not be $ 100 but another $ 50 wouldn't hurt.

CRAZZYmAN bubble for you
