Bloomberg News: Sony Corp., the biggest maker of video-game players, may lower the U.S. price of the newest PlayStation 3 console once supplies of an older model are sold, an analyst said.

Sony will stop selling PlayStation 3s equipped with a 60- gigabyte hard drive in the U.S. once the inventory is gone, Kimberly Otzman, a spokeswoman for Tokyo-based Sony's U.S. games business, said in an e-mail today.

So, if SONY lowers price and public finds out they're dropping the price! would you go buy one or wait for the price cut! Unless it is after the holidays, which makes sense.....

Yeah! Though this is buiseness, and cutting the price already would make Sony seem desperate and that would make analysts write critical reviews about the announcement. The Paramount situation is such an impact and suprise for the Blu-ray camp, that they may announce a new PS3 sku that is very stripped down and focuses on delivering a cheap Blu-ray player for the holidays.

Marketing the PS3 as a Blu-ray player with Blu-ray movie bundles instead of the Motorstorm and games bundles, seems like a logical response to HD-DVD. Paramount exerts such power in this format war, that they have to be radical in order to prevent other major studios to wobble.
