    How long till you thing Sony makes a PS3 light

    If they cut out Blue-Ray (assuming the games aren't blue-ray format) and they cut out some additional stuff they could be in direct line with the Xbox360's price. In that case they would not be competing with the likes of Dell, HP and all the other computer vendors for a share of household disposable income.

    It would be a big political decision for them as I know they were hoping including blue-ray would help blue-ray beat out HD-DVD by providing a large install base, but it's at the expense of pricing the game system out of most family's easy reach.

    I understand that right now the PS3 is the cheapest way to get blue-ray. I just would like sony to succeed with the PS3 and I think they priced themselves away from many in their target audience (18-34 crowd).

    I think they would like to gain profit from the funding spent to drive the cells development and the rest of the console, but the console aint even out world wide yet, we have to wait till march!

    once its out world wide,the sales comparision would then be fair.

    Apparently some people don't follow the gaming news where every week they talk about sales being low in both the U.S. and Japan.

    Unfortunately, Blu-ray can't be cut from PS3 since the PS3 games are on Blu-ray discs.

    If they do, all their future game releases from that point on must be on DVD discs for compatibility issues.

    Bottom line, it will never happen. Sony will rise or fall with Blu-ray.

    Actually there are players in developement called Total HD players that will play both formats. So it might be possible for both formats to live for a lot longer than originally thought.

    Anyone remember FF7? It came on 3 disks and was $39.99. On top of that it was one of the best games ever made. I think Sony has completely forgotten how to make a great game. If they ditched blue ray and put some games on multiple DVDs, it wouldn't be so bad. If they dropped the price of the games, it would be great. Sony chose CD formats back in the day to save money over catridges. They clearly haven't followed what made them great in the past.

    All I hear today are excuses why things cost so much. Well excuses in the business world equals failure.

    If you mean light, as in smaller, then the PS3 light would still be the size of a small family car...
