    Wait, wait, wait, wait... Does this mean they just made a 5th version of the console?

    the ps3 is like a PC. There is one version with different setups. That is all.

    OP: The reason for the PRICE drops is because the technology is becoming more common. Like any new piece of tech, it starts off pricey but as it floods the market, as the companies optimize their orders, and the system gains popularity, the PS3 is able to be cheaper.

    Sony is actually putting more and more resources into their gaming division, which is noticeable. Add to the fact that many of their projects are finishing up development, they are preparing for a hot 2008.

    This should all be common sense.

    I know it is cool, and just to think next to none of this money is going towards SONY as most of that money goes to the producers of the Blu-Ray.

    i dunno about that..my mate here in australia has a european ps3, it plays australian games and everything just fine but it doesnt play blu rays or dvds..not sure if thats means its non regional because we both use PAL,thats why the games work fine, but it must be regional because then wouldnt the dvds and blu rays work fine as well? I'm not really sure, but just some insight

    cool!!

    but they wouldn't easily reduce price in europe because ps3 sales are higher in europe.......

    *my opinion: if ps3 ever reaches wii price, there will be nice battle between wii and ps3, with xbox360 on the bottom..... :P

    Hmm I dunno, I still like the look of the black one, it looks more... Shiney, lol! But yeah this is good if you got a Wii and other bits of white technology, but with my white Wii, Silver freeview box, black PS2 and silver/black DVD player I got different colours so I don't need to keep a trend going there.

    EDIT:
    Spoiler Alert!

    LOL! It would be an interesting twist in the war if that came true!

    The PlayStation 3 does not enforce regional lockout on games developed for the platform itself, however backward compatibility modes are region locked. Blu-ray Disc and DVD region codes are also enforced
    i thought it was totally region free.

    but this just tells us that the makers are not made to region lock there games

    but all its ps2 games are still locked.
