If the PS3 Slim is legit and releases at $299 - What will it do for sales?

Forums - Sales Discussion - If the PS3 Slim is legit and releases at $299 - What will it do for sales?

There was nothing left to be said in the other thread kowenicki...........surely you are not this childish? The slim or price cut will have to come this fiscal year because that is the year Sony expect a 30% increase in sales. None of us know what PS3 production costs are now but rest assured a PS3 Slim would decrease production costs.

I have no link..........just an IQ exceeding a banana.

I don't know about it, looks kinda a prototype of some sort, this would of course explain the ugly look...but then again it could be just a fake one.



@RPG

You assume one thing, I assume another... doesnt make either of us more correct RPG....

I fail to see how a slim reduces costs in the short term or helps them not make a $1bn loss on the hardware over the next 12 months.



I'm not really here!

I personally think sales will rise. I like the way of it's look. It's a PS3...smaller. The cheaper price will definitely get more than few people to buy one.

I thing what RPG is trying to say is along the lines of the following.

 

Say you sell a burger in inch thick wrapping that costs 5c.

Then you change the packaging to stuff that costs 2c and put the thing on a smaller bun saving i dunno...10c per burger.

If you charged $3.50 for the old burger, now you can charge $3.40 and make an extra 2c per burger.

 

Also, smaller units are smaller to crate up, and more can be put in a crate saving shipping costs

The list goes on...

I'm not sure if he's %100 correct though, only time will tell. After all, someone has to be paid for designing and testing the burger

All joking aside, you are wrong RPG.  A slim model will not decrease production costs by a huge amount.  It will only decrease the costs by a small amount. (and definently not $100)  All the componets that are expensive are going to be the same price as they are in the full size PS3. (The cell, blu-ray, memory, harddrive)  The only places you save money is on the cost of the case and a smaller mainboard.

Any savings that Sony will make on a slim PS3 need to go towards getting the division back to profitability.  I can't imagine that Sony would actually do something that stupid, but now a days you never know.



If the PS3 Slim is legit and releases at $299 Sony would die, instantly. Is that what you want ???? HATER !



Really, a slimmer PS3 would sell much better, finally take over the Japanese market and counter the 360 elsewhere.

BUT :

Sony can't afford it. It would reach a 300$ price at some point but definitely not while its' still bleeding money.

360 is planning on doing the same thing and has both cost and price advantage.
