Hirai: I Think About PS3 Pricing Everyday

Sony Computer Entertainment's chief executive Kaz Hirai acknowledged that the PS3's pricing situation is such an important factor that he thinks about it everyday. That said, he didn't announce a price drop at TGS, a move that left analyst Michael Pachter confused.

Seriously ... until the moment the price is dropped, they aren't going to say a freaking word. People would just wait hurting all current sales. They are going to have to lower the price by the holidays though.

Even the recent price drop this July was denied the previous week of it happening.

Hirai san is our prophet!

Listen to HIM, not Master Chief.

He's kind of confused about prices but he can't be blame. He is the master of masters.

rogimusprime3829d ago

he figured the bukkake session he regularly receives from the Sony bigwigs in exchange for correct analyst predictions would be enough for Kaz to tell him the truth this time. Apparently not.

Maybe the NPD charts the next couple of months will make them reconsider.

I'm one of those who belives, there's just no way PS3 can pull out this Christmas without something. They can talk about 2008, but 2008 won't even come for PS3.

what are you eating ? you must be very ill.

Chris_GTR13829d ago

ps3 has nothing.. no must have games.. no nothing... even home got delayed... i cant think of a single game i would want to buy at all for ps3 for this holiday season..

socomnick3829d ago

Hopefully they do lower the price they have to bring down the premium xbox to 250-300 dollars imagine all the sales the xbox would get.

cartman3133829d ago

I wouldn't say they don't have anything. From now until next year, there are 8 games that interest me. Just have to wonder how many of them will get delayed...Although some delays will help my bank account.

Chris_GTR13829d ago

so what are those 8 games you want? cause i have no idea at all waht they are. the ONLY game i can consider getting would be uncharted.
and that dosent have multiplayer so i dont really know if its a MUST buy since its probably a 10 hour game at most.

Games that vindicate my PS3 purchase:(To be fair, a disclaimer, I do understand any of those unannounced games can flop like Lair did. This list merely states what has my captive attention and from what we see on early builds, are in the right direction to be solid, good titles.)

Metal Gear
Killzone 2 (Wasn't there before I saw the trailer)
Final Fantasy 13
Final Fantasy Versus 13
Ratchet and Clank Future
Socom Confrontation
Honorary Mention: Everyday Shooter.

Multiplatform games: Rock Band (Free Online, cheaper,wireless guitar), Army of Two (again, free online coop which is the meat of the game, Haze (interesting 4 player online coop that can potentially be alot of fun), MAYBE Unreal Tournament 3 I'm not all that big one FPS's, I'm a huge third person shooter/action game fan, Potentially Burnout Paradise depending on how many of my friends get it.

Where's the mystery in that? Most of the games I want are scheduled for 08, but until then, it's not like I don't have good multiplatform games to satisfy my gaming appetite.

And it's really not like I didn't have an enjoyable time beating Ninja Gaiden, getting full completion and all glyphs on Heavenly Sword, or getting all the skill points and ranking up on Resistance which is severely underrated as a shooter, it was rushed for launch but the underlieing elements that make a solid shooter are existent.

Additionally, reasons I have to be excited for: Firmware 2.0, dualshock 3 controller, Home functionality, God of War 3 announcement, potential FF7 remake announcement one day.

I will agree that Sony had a slow start, but they have to pick up the steam and get that momentum rolling.

Edit: Why are you laughing? If you read, I just SAID most of those games are out in 08, but that there are good multiplatform games that will be out this holiday season to pass the time.......Stop being a child, I tried being mature, and you laugh at me?

ALl the disclaimers I put make anything I wrote insubjectable to any tearing down. I covered my bases on all ends. I show there's fallibility, and I come right out and say there's nothing great that's exclusive in 07 except for Everyday Shooter, Ratchet and Uncharted (which MAY flop), but there are great multiplatform games I will be getting, so what's your problem?

Chris_GTR13829d ago

EVERY GAME u just mentioned isnt out till 2008! only 2 games on that whole list are coming out this year and are exclusive..uncharted and rachet clank. both of them have NO i said before... THERE ARE NO GOOD GAMES ON PS3 FOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

cartman3133829d ago

Since I only own a PS3, I will list multiplatform games too.

1. Uncharted
2. Ratchet and Clank
3. COD4
4. Guitar Hero III
5. Assassins Creed
6. Haze
8. Clive Barker's Jericho

There you go, and yes I will get all of them.

Trust me it matters. Every game that is multi platform is a loss for PS3, because it costs more. If it was PS3 that costed less, then Assassins Creed and Devil May Cry 4, and Grand Theft Auto 4 being on both consoles wouldn't look bad for PS3. It would look bad for XBOX 360.

You look at Europe, where even with the lower price the XBOX 360 isn't selling that much more than the PS3. That place is open for the taking, Sony would make a huge mistake not to give them a price cut.

cartman3133829d ago

Don't worry man, some sort of price drop will happen.
