    Wii's Momentum To Last Until Ps3 is Under $300?

    Sonycowboy on NeoGaf (who brought you the latest NPD numbers), quotes a few key statements in an interview that EGM had with Michael Pachter, in the current issue out in newstands.

    "I think the Wii momentum will last until the Playstation 3 is under $300, so another year"

    "2008 is definitely Sony's year. And I'd throw Grand Theft Auto IV into the mix, given that it's considered a PS2 owner's [franchise]. Also, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue should sell some consoles.."

    "I think Microsoft's first party lineup is weakning, but I think that exclusives like Splinter Cell: Conviction will keep them going for another year. They also have the resources to sign third party exclusives."'

    -From Decision 08 article in this month's EGM

    hopefully the ps3 drops to $300 soon like in like 6 months cuz i'll buy it then but $400 is to much for me. so im one of those people who wont buy a ps3 cuz of price. so i think if they lowered it to $300 the sales would get a much needed boost

    But if they drop it too much they wont be making much profit.

    well they havent made profit off ps3 consoles for a while nd now i think they are cuz the production cost has went down. but after a while im sure they will lower it to $300. they still get profits from games and the more consoles sold the more games are bought. so lowering the price can be good for them because they can sell more consoles.

    When the ps3 finnaly drops to 300 bucks it will sell better no doubt... but they are gonna keep loosing more and more money with these price drops this quickly into the system launch, but i heard rumor of a 300 price tag by next Christams...

    Still the wii and 360 can match any price drop thrown at them by Ps3... they will be down to the 150- 99 dollar mark sooner than ps3 hits the 199 mark, and atleast they can afford to do it.
    Even with a price drop, i doubt it will be enough to scoop up any real leftovers of the "casual" market... its just going to make Sonys fans happier nothing more... they will be playing catch up untill next gen comes out...

    Sony has enough money (not to complement them) PS2 did well even though I didn't really like it, so they have money from that. Also Sony makes stuff other than video games that I am sure of. They are desperate enough to take money from there other areas so a price drop couldn't hurt them that much but the PS3 will always stink no matter what they do.

    I will admit that, if the best came out for $300 I would have bought that and probably not think of getting a wii till next year. They said they are making a cheaper version of it soon so we'll see, I am planning on getting a 360 soon so if the ps3 comes at a cheaper price this year then I will definetly get it for either my b-day or chirstmas.

    The PS3 has never made a profit. I don't think Sony's game division has ever made a profit. Nor has Microsoft's XBox division.

    And the Wii will lose momentum the day that Zelda and Mario games are available on the Playstation.

    i dont doubt wiis momentum will last another year. i can see wiis becoming more available near the end of the year.

    400$ is a good price for the PS3 in my opinion. pretty soon Blu-ray players will have to come down in price to keep up with the PS3. no ones going to buy a stand alone player for 600 bucks if the PS3 is only 3.
