The 600 crowd have got to be Sony meat bots (and products of their influence as well as console warriors picking up the trend) the trend of pushing this was all too suddenly started, spread to far and wide all in one go and is too precise and consistent for it not to be a concerted effort. I don't know what the end goal would be, perhaps to over extend the pricing in people's mind so when it drops at 500 it "feels" like it is cheaper. Discussions on the internet don't just pop up like this with dozens of people giving their opinions on something very specific like 599/600 in such a narrow period of time. This is not organic.Â
Could be opposition 'bots' pushing it, hoping PS is full enough of themselves to go for 14TF and either launch at $599 again or have to eat so much cost they can't compete with a $399-$499 XB 'powerhouse' Anaconda bluff. Either that or 'bots' in the know who are aware of the true $599 launch price who are getting ahead of the game and preparing everyone for the next PS3.
I think and hope your right though. Most thought PS4 was going to drop at $499+ because of XB1, and when $399 was announced the Earth shook, so.
