Many have rumored a PS3 price drop at E3. Sony has announced the COD: Black Ops First Strike bundle for PS3 to release May 31 for $299. Could this end up being slashed in price at the E3 Sony Press Conference?
I hope so.I think the PS3 is due for a price drop.
I hope so too... one of my buddies is such a cheap ass he's waiting for the $200 price point. It's not that he doesn't have the money, he's just a cheap ass. $250 sounds more like it though.
Woah! That's the price consoles get dropped to when the new console is being released next year! It's a bit too soon for a big drop like that!
Call the cops, I think that theres a steal in the works!
Thats not really being a cheap ass. Well for me, I already own an Xbox 360 and a decent PC rig. Spending $300 for another console seems like alot at that point IMO. Im waiting for a price drop since money's kinda tight.
We just got thos at target but not allowed to put out yet should have checked the price
A $200 PS3 would be pretty darn unstoppable. A slew of exclusive games and an awesome price point as well as reliable hardware, would be a HUGE win for gamers. And this bundle looks good. CoD people will eat it up.
Yeah but why would they bring it out now and have it at $299 for a week just to slash the price? I don't think it'll drop at E3 but you never know. I do have a strong feeling that it will drop sometime this year though but probably not till Gamescom.
249 seems more likely to me.
even $249 is a sweet spot .
Hmm...where I live its already priced at $250. So 250 doesn't seem much of a drop. nvm, I get what u mean...
$199 for that bundle? No way. $249 best case scenario.
I wonder if this will turn out how everyone is expecting with the $199 price point. It doesn't seem unlikely to me at all.
I could've swore I just heard this from someone on a yet to be released podcast during the E3 expectations and predictions round.
*pulls out crystal ball*
Yes Sony will announce a drop the price to $199 at E3.
You're going to spoil the surprise; or cause an outrage of People mocking a $50 price drop or none at all. Either way speculating low like this doesn't help Sony. It keeps them from having a 'bang' at E3. I would like to speculate 360 going down to $99 this E3 - maybe with a live contract or something lol.
199 would be a wonderful price, it seems unlikely but who knows. A 199 price would send the sales into the stratosphere. But as others have said 249 seems more likely.
$200 is highly, highly unlikely. $250 is more than a reasonable asking price for a PS3. People will absolutely eat it up.
smart move by Sony if it happens
pass that game sucks anyways... just make the PS3 $199 and people can pick games that are actually good. They should just mark down the Killzone 3 bundle and go that way. At least that game works correctly on the PS3 after all.
There is some irony in your post.
lol there is irony in everything I do 8)~
If this is the case, I think it's time I buy a second one for the bulk of my entertainment needs and retire my fat ps3 to the bedroom for less strenuous use. That fan gets LOUD.
I hope so, I've been looking toward buying a PS3 recently.
Don't see it happening. $249.99 seems much more likely.
They've always dropped the PS3 by $100 increments though and with the 360/Wii both being $100-150 cheaper I see it going to $199.
199 I will pick it up for my room..and I'd like to try out Black Ops anyway, just wanna know how good or how bad it is.
This is a lie theirs no profit for Sony at $200 for all of this
Dont think so
I would appreciate a $30 price drop.Might pick up a second for a Father's Day gift.
if its 199 ill buy 2 one for my front room one for my bathroom and i already hav one for my room but i highly dought it mabe 250
Why would you get a ps3 for your bathroom?
becuz its 199 maaaaan ill literally be sh*ttin on dudes
