PS3 pricecut 600 to 500 dollar: short spark, only July. Then back to selling the least of all consoles

PS3 pricecut 500 to 400 dollar: will it be different? Not so much as long as the competition has a lower price and offering better content, more content, better exclusives and a premium online service (no waiting on a gimmick as Home...)

This Christmas? Last year the 360 sold over nr.1 with Wii close, PS3 fell short. This year? Same story.

There is a lot of people out there just waiting to upgrade their ps2's. As the PS3 price falls coupled with more and more familiar titles and new IP's, you will see a lot of them come over. This new price point is starting to put those people in that range. The PS3 also looks like a better deal with every HDTV sold as it's also a BD player.

Look ... I know the box has good games. It's got a good user base and, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. I know this race is going to be a lot closer this time around. Which is good. I just think you're as bad as Nasim ... only on the other end of the spectrum.

I swear you one-console-wonders will be the death of sites like this. Too much fanboyism.

All of the figures come from Amazon. Has anybody done a comparison of the column from past weeks to see how closely Amazon sales reflect trends in the broader market? Are Amazon sales a reliable indicator of how well something is selling in general? If somebody has the time, that would be a great thing to find out.
