Sony: We've Learnt From High PS3 Price Point

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony: We've Learnt From High PS3 Price Point

At 299 i'd be shocked and very happy, but i'd say its 349 which is still good. i'd be happy to pay 399 considering how much tech it has

THey should just announce the price if its so reasonable. Steal Nintys 3DS thunder. If the price is somewhere 3DS people may hold out on buying so they can have NGP.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

$299 is affordable? Um, ok.


Still a whole lot cheaper than an iPhone (they cost twice as much as that unlocked) and people seem to think that that is most affordable. Same goes for an iPad. Yes, I know, neither the iPhone nor the iPad are handheld consoles per say but they compete in the same gaming market so 300$ is certainly not overpriced imo.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

If you can call charging for flash games competing

The funniest statement in that article has to be "We always had the price and consumer in mind." Although, that is technically true when they told everyone to get a second job to buy one.

well they did sell all their stock at launch

So they finally admit it. Took em long enough.



I wish SONY had realised this in 2005 but hindsight is always 20/20 even for major corporations.
