Sony dropped Kotaku a line to let us know that something big was going down on Tuesday, March 31st. Could it be the long-rumored price cut is finally upon us?
My guess is firmware 2.70
The most important question is,Why kotaku?!
lol yeah, since when does Sony contact Kotaku?
Because they are one of the most well known Sony haters. Seriously though I would say Kotaku wasn't the only network of sites notified.
I hope it's something big then since Kotaku likes to flop everything Sony does. "Sony reveals secret button to turn PS3 into PS4, but does it matter?" - Written by Brian Ashcroft
It probably is Firmware 2.70..... But since this is all wild speculation,lets go all out and hope for a quadruple announcement/unveiling of Team Ico's next game,the next JAK game,Dark Cloud 3,and Kingdom hearts 3.... If only this could be true....
What bugs me most is the fact that Kotaku did not mention anything about FW2.70 Those guys clearly pay no attention to anything Sony. IMO, if 2.70 does come out on Tuesday, and it has cross-game chat... Microsoft may as well start announcing the next XBox.
I'd say firmware or a price drop are the 2 most likely suspects. Firmware usually comes out on Tuesday nights.
I will say price cut more than firmware or perhaps both. March 31st = end of fiscal yr. So they can start new yr with a lower price and yield more revenue
maybe they are trying to get Kotaku to stop with all the hate. Unless its a big FW update that will bring alot of stuff, i think it will be a price-cut. Sony usually dont let people know theres a FW coming incase of delay etc (except on the blog the day before)
Seriously, of all sites to do this through. But I hope its the price cut. NOt because I want to buy a PS3 and 100.00 bucks is the difference between me buying one or not. No, I want it to be the price cut so all these media people can stop with all the "teh PS3 is dooomzed. Sonyz mus drow teh price!"
hmm...what's that day after March 31st? when is Kotaku going to post this "news" from Sony? When in the past has Sony ever contacted Kotaku, the biggest Xbox fanboy site around?
This is what i wish sony would have wrote to kotaku: "Dear Kotaku, we here at sony computer entertainment have a very big announcement on tuesday. We felt we wanted to tell you because. . .you know. . . your website is sort of that one that trashes up relentlessly, ya know. . .don't really cut us any slack at all. . . Well we're dropping the ps3's price by $100. Got anything else you wanna moan about? THEN STFU. Sincerely, Sony "
F.W 2.70, got to be.
i really really hope so!
Its firmware 2.7 ..... Makes sense, tuesday is usually the firmware day and a dev confirmed we would see a new firmware before the end of the month . Either way if it was a price drop it would be great news aswell... Or it could be a crappy announcement noone cares about...Like they now have 21 million PSN users.. Or it could well be a PS2 price drop like kotaku says, but i dont know where that came from.....And even though it will be good, noone really cares..
why would they talk about price cuts? Honestly, we would get that news before kotaku even gets it with a few people here who work at retail.
Yep, I would expect leaked retail flyers 2 to 3 weeks before a price drop.
The only way this announcement is 2.70 is if the feature list in 2.70 is 1 - Extensive 2 - Comprised of the most demanded features Otherwise it is either an exclusive deal of a known multiplatform title (Modern Warfare springs to mind or possibly Mass Effect) or it is a price cut.
It definetly isnt exclusive Modern Warefare 2 to PS3...There was an image on Infinity wards twitter page showing them testing the game using 360's. But anyway I know what your saying.... I dont think its a price cut, why would they tell Kotaku first ? They would be telling retailers and like someone above me said we would have already had leaked invoices/flyers I personally think its 2.7, it must be something big or they wouldnt be giving the news to Kotaku. Also news like a firmware update is only relevant to people owning a PS3, so saying they have something big to announce to gaming website like Kotaku seems logical when its a firmware update.. But put it this way, its a either a new game announcement or a firmware update...
When I say Modern Warfare Exclusive I wouldn't mean the entire game but rather something like DLC. And if it's 2.7 then as I said it would have to be a huge important update unlike anything seen thus far.
Next Week Square Enix is set to announce something about the Kingdom Hearts series. Sony is set to announce something. Could it be Kingdom Hearts 3? Oh and I forgot. Let the speculations begin.
A console game that might actually sell? Doubt it. Square seems completely focused on making consoles games that don't sell. But KH3 would be great for both Sony and Square.
Firmware 2.7 releasing on April 2nd.
wasn't that rumor to come mid April?
and they have many 360 fanboys there, but im still curious to see what it is
but why kotaku?....lol
probably so that they can SFTU for once. Maybe they have something that will make them STFU
Kotaku made this up so they can bash Sony for not revealing anything on April 1st.... Seems like Kotaku always has some hate for anything Sony related.
Again, I ask. Did Datafly actually show it's head at GDC? I heard it was SUPPOSED to.
I didn't see anything at all about it either. So i think they didn't show anything at least publicly.
Square Enix and Sony doing business that involves Ps3 exclusivity...You're joking right? Sony aren't known for doing anything 'megaton-ish' therefore it's most probably the next Firmware Update. Although I don't see why on Earth they would be hyping up a Firmware Update.
maybe it might have the most requested features that people have been complaining about for the last 2 years?
I did say let the wild speculation begin. :)
There buying out Nintendo.
Bluetooth Wii-mote on a PS3, bring it on!
I'd drop them(Kotaku)...in a River, with them all wearing Concrete Boots!!! ;-D
not a big fan of Kotaku either, they're closet xbots to me
then you can drop those [email protected] xbots gaytaku down the river
obviously it will be another ps3 exclusive. Im gonna be soo broke this year!
Man that has got to be the funniest thing I've ever heard on here.
Probably Firmware 2.7 and price drop :)
a price drop would make sense because that marks the end of their fiscal year and maybe...just maybe they kept their lips sewn shut about the topic enough to make it an actual secret? bah...it's probably just FW 2.7
if its a price cut no way am i buying a ps3, its just way too cheap...
I'm hoping it's 2.70 with a motherload of features. I love getting updates:)
its probably firmware 2.7. sony always puts out firmwares on tuesdays
Why do I smell April Fools...
of April Fools
April fools... lol j/k
im assuming its a mystery game revealed maybe the bbc game?? should be good cant wait
Firmware 2.7, a firmware that will always be rememebered like 1.8, 2.0, 2.4 $200 dollar price drop :) - it's possible
My guess is it's either a price drop or the 2.70 firmware announcement!
mabey a ps2 and a ps3 price drop firmware 2.70 we will see still good new all around
is going to April Fool that site...
Fiscal year ends that day, my guess price cut.
Why do you guys think its about ps3? The article has psp and ps2 tags in it so it could be a 99 PS2 price cut
Because Sony only said it's playstation related. So Kotaku will tag everything sony with this news.
Because there main focous is ps3, aren't you that 360 fanboy?
Kotaku preparing its annual April Fool.
Well ofcourse they are gonna announce Ninja mother f**ing Gaiden Sigma 2!
hmm... well if Sony has a BIG announcement, how can it not involve the PS3? PS2 dropping to $99 is not a big announcement neither is dropping the price of the PSP.
My Guess God of war 3 release date and just maybe we might just get the god of war 3 demo seen on gdc now that wold be amazing or it can be the secret game that the bbc guy was talking about or some more ps3 exclusive game's and some more new home space coming soon either way am happy to own a ps3 or xbox360 died lol just j/k
GOW3 release date is being revealed at E3, Sony told us that back in February when they showed the game to the press.
i doubt it is a FW update, since this news is meant to be big and sony usually dont even inform anyone at all (except on the blog the day before) before launching their FW update incase of unexpected delay etc. My guess is a price-drop, since that is very big news and im guessing will make a big difference in sales. If true, Sony clearly want to hype whatever it is and stir up the internet, so i doubt it will disappoint.
