The 360 is outselling it by about 50k each week and a PS3 price drop seems to be right around the corner if you ask any analysts
The reason you have every analyst saying the price drop is right around the corner is because that seems to be the only way for the PS3 to become more than competative and actually start catching up. Just because that will put more PS3s in peoples hands does not necessarly mean that it is feasible for Sony to do it, or that it will make them more money.
While a price drop would be great for the market, it could also be the death nail for Sony. They are walking a fine line at the moment.
