3) The Wii price and release date is going to be announced.

1. Doubt it. I don't think that they would drop a bomb like this. I think that they would have known this information yesterday. Why keep dragging the bad news on and on.

2. Maybe, but I doubt it.

3. I totally think that the news is Wii related!

4. No Way! They have already announced that there will be no price drop to coincide with the PS3/Wii launch.

If this "special announcement" is not PS3 related, I'll go All In, in a Texas Hold'em game for $50,000 on a pair of 2's.

A previously exclusive game is going to another system, like DMC4 coming to 360.

-OR-

Wii price details.

-OR-

Outside chance but......Sony is removing Bluray from the PS3, giving the consumers a console actually designed for gamers at a more realistic price.

munish233672d ago

if sony was removing blu-ray then there would be no point of the delay in europe or the shortages

Yeah, the 3rd was a joke.
