Rumor: PS3 to lower price by US$100 by October?

Rumor time folks. The NetMunch News Network blog is reporting that sources, anonymous sources, are stating that a price cut for the PlayStation 3 is likely by October, and the injury to the wallet should lessen by US$ 100. This of course is in light of the recent lowering of the PlayStation Portable price.

the ps3 is already alittle cheap in japan and UK retailers Slashed the prices for it already. and then ofcourse the psp has seen another price drop. i think sony knows that in order to gain more market and catch it'll need to make our pockets bleed less. 600 bucks ain't cheap, though the console is amazing. i sure got my bang for my six hundred. but not everyone has the money i do or even see it in that light which is why i think they should have dropped the price days after it launched. still i'm amazed that the ps3 is selling at a steady rate despite it's high price tag. a 100 dollar price tag drop in the us, and a 100 yen drop in japan and 125 euro drop in the uk should do more that boost sales coupled with the release of home and some killer games this fall and probably a new reworking of the sixaxis. If this is true, then good job to sony. and further validates that they are still doing everything to keep their system alive and well. i mean after all they are looking to lower cost of productions. they have ready done that with the removal of the emotion engine. next is cheap blu-ray drives and more cheaper hardrives for the game. and of course smaller ps3 chipsets. little by little they are doing what needed for their game division.

They dont need a price drop the pal does and maybe the Us...but most def the pal..guys rember there ps3s are like 425 bucks

I don't think they would let a price drop leak out. If this was true can you imagine everyone waiting until the price drop? Sales would plummet until October.

never looked at it that way. still i think that they'd kinda force people to by the system with the release of big titles like NGS and Lair over the summer. those games are definately system sellers ^^

Yeahh! I've been saying that all along. The reason why they say no price drop until 2009 is so people won't hold on for christmas! It'll drop in the UK considerably by xmas. With a game bundled in and a rumble controller :)

Maybe they will reinstate the 20 Gig model and save Lemmings $200.00, Then again, maybe not.
