Forums - Sony Discussion - Pachter: PlayStation 3 Price Cut Likely This Week

So Sony wants to lose more money cutting their margins? It's not financially savvy.

It's Pachter, dude. PS3 price hike confirmed.

I say that we officially ban anything "Pachter" related. He only:

A) Posts doom about Nintendo

or

B) States the obvious that everyone already realized could happen



Once again this guy is blowing smoke out his ass.

Unless this is a mis-summerised quote, price drops are'nt sudden they usually need to be announced at least a week in advanced as we have seen. I don't think much of Sony, but I imagine a price drop because of an announcement is a heroicly bad decision, especially given the latest market trends, a (almost final) price drop wouldn't happen until the PS4 launch, which is industry standard.

The big highlight of this guys ignorance here is MS's inexplicable counter-drop. The $99 price point is final. The only thing, is again after launch, the will drop the need for 2 years of Live, that will be their price drop.

So no price cut confirmed.

No it won't.

- Sony expects to profit by year-end; it won't be able to do so by having a money losing venture once more in the gaming division
- PSVita already got a price cut - now selling at a loss
- PS3 is is profitable as of late 2010 - keep it that way.
- Price cut will come shortly once the PS4 is released; thus, one will see a price cut in FY14.



I doubt they would do that.



So happy to be a Sony fan right now :D
