Sony loose money every time a console is sold, so it would be a bad idea to drop the price. The PS3 will have a price rise in the US with the introduction of the 80 gig model.
I have a PS3 and it cost me 5999 norwegian money and that is the same as 1200 US$. :(

Witch means that I am economicly funding sony with 699 US$

Nobody know how much money Sony is losing anyone. They recent taken out EE chips, blu ray players reduced in price, and months back IBM had been reporting that they were currently making cheaper cell processors. I believe the European Price cut will be coming very soon, and it followed by a Japanesse price cut.

Nice place.
Anyways, I bet the places that DID get the bundle really wanted a price cut. This is the beginning of asking for one. Let's see what Sony has to say about it. GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT! and stop bundling things and saying it's a "DEAL"

if these next gen consoles cost so much, just imagine the prices on the consoles in the generation after this.
