    yes their is another rumor that ps3 is gonna have a price drop on the 28th

    im not surprised, seeing as how it only costs 400$ to make a system now

    http://exgn.wordpress.com/2008/01/21/rumor-ps3-in-store-for-yet-another-price-drop/

    no flaiming

    this is good i guess, their slowly removing all the reason not to get a ps3, if this does happen which it probably willl seeing as how this is the site that reported ps3 price drops and 360 price drops several weeks before it happened


    and im gonna post this very clearly because people have cripplyibility (i spelled that wrong) to say metal gear isnt exclusive, IT IS DAM IT

    UPDATE:

    OK their is a new rumor, now their saying that the ps3 that releases will be ceramic white 40GB for 299$!!!! and their also saying its conterpart the 40GB black will come down to 299$ and the 80GB however will only reduce by 50$ though its still a pricedrop,

    I'm going to flame you for your horrendous spelling.





    I kid, I kid :D

    That's *very* interesting - my price point has always been <$300 (it has lots of complex math I won't go into :lol: ), but at $299, I might actually score one, even if it's JUST a BD player initially.

    Good info! I'll be keeping an eye out.

    That's cool, just bustin' your chops - forwarded the link to a buddy of mine who's on the cusp of a PS3 purchase like me.

    I have like $500 of BestBoob gift certs sitting around here too - didn't really need anything specifically (was going to use them for a lens but bought it through Adorama).

    I'm assuming that's the 40GB without PS2 emulation model (which is cool too as there are no PS2 games I will likely want to play).

    Typical routine for a gaming company to deny any/all rumors, even if they're true or not.

    i doubt this is true...its just way to early for another price cut and they already have lost so much money...if this is true then they will be losing a lot more money..just doesnt seem right

    I expect massive losses from SCE come end of January - if they do cut the price, I suspect no profits through 2009 (yes, '09). Warner subsidies, Fox subsidies, Disney subsidies, Lions Gate subsidies, etc., and the BD play looks like a deep, dark, cash sinkhole.

    Still won't stop be from buying one at $299 though :lol:

    I can see a price cut. If the cost of making PS3's has been cut in half then you can cut the price of a PS3 and it would even itself out.

    These companies don't bank on making money from hardware sales anyway. The only console to be sold for a profit early in its lifecycle in years is the Wii. PS1, PS2, Xbox, 360, Gamecube, all sold at a loss early in their life. The money is made from liscencing software. Now, what Sony was losing initially from the PS3 was higher than any other console I can remember, maybe ever. But still, I think that cutting cost to even $50 below manufacturing would help sales in conjunction with the 2008 lineup.

    I can't see a price cut coming in the next month or two. Summer is more likely. It might even be Fall before we see another price cut. It'd be great for Sony if they came through with one. Currently they are only $50 higher than the 360 and offer arguably a better value in terms of what is included.

    lol

    the reason why most people think that this price cut is true is cause of warner and the rest of them, their makin alot ofmoney, th BD sales have gone way up, that is no reason for sony not to do it

    and to the guy up their, when their was rumor about 80GB sony denied it, when their was a rumor about 40GB they denied

    its natural fora gaming company to deny a price cut,
