Pachter is kind of right at most points when you think about it. Sony shouldn't talk about the PS2 anymore. PS2 sales are finally declining after 8 years in the market, this is its 9th year. it was built to be around for 10 years in the market. People arent interested in getting a PS2 anymore, people want a PS3/360 or a wii now.

The price cut with the introduction of the PS3 slim is spot on as what i stated and thought about for a while. they are going to slim down the PS3 and get rid of the old PS3. when they cut the price of the PS3 back in 2007, they made a bad mistake which cost them millions, which was cutting it during the summer instead of phasing it out and cutting the price in the fall. This time they are not going to let the same mistake happen twice. sell the old PS3 to clear it out of the channel then introduce the price cut and the slim.

Yeah, like XBL isn't a rip-off. The only platform that charges a fee to play online with the least dedicated servers compared to PC and PS3 platforms. Also how about those high priced hardware add-ons.

$250 for the PSP Go is a rip off which makes it unlikely that we'll see a price cut for the PS3 anytime soon. For it to go down to $300, the PSP Go needs to go to down $150.

And the PSP/PS2 presentations were the most dullest moments of E3.

PSP presentation wasnt dull at all. there was a lot of info that went out on whats going on with the PSP. i agree with you with the PS2 presentation though.
