I would think Sony is going to look at what happens the first month after the price cut. Then take action if needed.

But no matter what happens Im sure Sony will cut the Euro price for the holidays.

..the new 65nm chip comes with the console. A brand new console SHOULDN'T be returned for repair as soon as 1 year, thats simply NOT right.

The PS3 does a good job, though MS will stop at nothing to take over the console industry.

That is not a healthy situation for sonys fanbase and momentum.

1,000.00 USD = 742.094 EUR
1,000.00 USD = 503.175 GBP

PS3's DO NOT cost 742 euros and PS3's DO NOT cost 503 GBP

325.00 USD = 163.647 GBP

The article states the pricedrop is UK is to £250 NOT £163 you tard

Stop spreading useless CRAP

and FYI, the 360 pricedrops didn't seem to have much of an effect in USA (which is probably where you're from. Either that or Retardtopia)


oh nice one alexander you changed your comment. At least even you see how fake your numbers were

why wouldnt they? isnt that what sony does nowadays, follow?

Rama262854051d ago

Omali, what is the point of that comment??

With the anti-sony comment I presume you're pro-xbox. Which in that case surely the xbox was following sony (and nintendo) by making a games console??

But please, leave your useless comments at home where they belong.

Thank you.

wth? £30?? thats less than a game. Ah well, i guess F279 to F249 does look more tempting, just doesnt seem much but yes does look a nicer price :)

Im pro PS3, but I dont agree with Sony's price tag strategy.

However I do hope they'll cut the price. Hopefully we'll hear more details in about 2 days :).

ahhh, those highminded britts don't deserve a price cut , but the rest of europe is cool AS shlt

rukusa4051d ago

"But rest of Europe is coola AS sh*t"
