that would just be silly to lower a model down to $179 thats nearly $100 price cut for a company losing billions.
i would price
16gb $199
250gb $229
500gb $259

1. The PS3 isn't losing money, yet its sales are shrinking.
2. This is on a new model that is, from all appearances sake, greatly cheaper to produce in just about every way.
3. Prices leaked by user on gaf that is known to be trustworthy.

well it better b 160G, but if it is 16G then, a simple solution would be to get a external 1T for $89.

with those price cuts this holiday season will be an interesting sight, but i'm still not sure how competative PS3 will be against Halo4, and last i checked, the cod exclusive dlc deal ended with blops 1.


pppfffftttt! blops... *snicker*

I dont' think you can play games directly from an external hard drive.

yes im aware of your points but If i was in a head position at sony I would not lower the prices that low. its just losing more profit and I think if they announced a base $199 the total revenue and profit would be more than the few extra sales they would get from a $179 base



Since I only had ps3 fat 40gb and there is $179 for 160gb super slim model? I will buy it!



The whole 16GB thing would be really stupid, now if it was say 64 GB internal storage, than that would be really cool. I think anything less than 32 GB's is insufficient to do anything and a rip off to consumers. MS is one of the worst offenders of ripping people off when data storage isn't expensive.

It looks like next Xmas Sony, MS and Ninty will all be very strong... Nice.

Lol I love how a PS3 without an Harddrive is an great idea but the WiiU without an harddrive is horrible.


Big difference here. With these PS3s it is optional.

Surely since you can buy a HDD which works with the WiiU for the same price, it's the same?

I'm not saying it's a good idea. But it's an idea. And a lot of people who would be getting the PS3 now are likely gonna be people who are uninterested in 'hardcore' gaming, and, as such, won't care about the lack of space. Same with the WiiU. 

 

Though, after all that rambling, they should release a WiiU with a 150GB HDD, let's say, for £30 more. But that's another thread.

Oh yeah I also forgot that you can use any hard drive in the ps3. So there's yet another reason to have a model without a hard drive. Especially as an upgrade to a previous system, all you have to do is pop the old one into the new machine!



Well I'm getting one and all you haters can suck my 500gb DONG



16gb doesn't sound enough to me,it wouldn't do me anyway not by a long shot

even though it seems like i can't save most of my games any more and have to buy psn just to back up a lot of my saves,is that just me or do other people find this
