    The price is a big problem... Some people who would love to purchase a PS3 may not be able to afford it. Someone may just want a PS3... lowering the price of the PS3 would encourarge people to buy it. People would be able to buy it if the price was cut.

    it's a combination of all the stuff.. of course more people would buy them if they were cheaper, just would it be enough for Sony to make up the difference?? they're probably saying "no" now or else they would lower the price.. i think the system looks great though i'm not interested in purchasing one because i use my computer for those types of games and now i have a wii for all of the other types of games..

    oh and i checked the stats, the ps2 is still losing like 20 bucks per system, but they make so much more than that out of the games and accessories that it doesn't matter.. kinda like ink for your printer.. printers are so friggin cheap now but the ink is what kills you.. ps3 is exactly the same just with more expensive hardware

    If they lower the price, more will be sold... if they don't some will still be sold... but not as many... therefore it probably won't make much difference whether they retain this price or decrease it.

    it would only be practical if they KNEW that people would buy more games because it was cheaper.. otherwise it would really be pointless

    There almost better off to give them away for the price of a wii. Think about it. Blue Ray would win for sure, they would win the console war and all the profits would come from blue ray royalties and games.

    yeah, if they are really making as much as it sounds on all the licensing stuff then it would probably be in their best interest to completely slash the prices.. do they get a cut for movies and such too??

    Here's all the latest info on the future PS3 price drop. My question is will this make the cell processor weaker? It sounds like a downgrade so Sony could save money. Will this mean the new processor in 2009 would be unable to play games like MGS4?

    Sony is already losing 300 or 250 dollars on every PS3 sold. How much more should they lower the price ?????

    to two dollars, and they should break, all of them, and slash the warrenty. That way, they would make it all up in repair costs.

    they should lower it enough so that they are hard to find everywhere, like the wii is still by me.. they'll easily make the money back on games and royalties from the technology.. it's just an embarrassment to sony saying how great their system is when the wii is outselling 3 to 1 sometimes 4 to 1 in areas with no end in sight
