So basically, when there will be a price drop, we will know when it will happen.

Those rumors always start before a big game come out, or before Christmas. The timing is so perfect that they really look like false rumors, made to slow down PS3 sales.

So, sorry, but I will never trust any rumors coming from a guy who has a cat who did talk to the neighbour's dog, who spilled the bean on the net about a price cut.

Price cut just happen. Sure every now and then, an analyst will get it right. But for 1 analyst who get it right, there's 9 that were totally wrong. So don't give credit to any price cut rumors. There's not one company in the world that would let something like that leak months or even a few weeks ahead.
