I'm saying the PS3 Super Slim DID NOT BENEFIT CONSUMERS. Hence, cheaper to produce models doesn't mean we, consumers, will get cheap hardware. MS could have done a price war with 360 to boost sales, but I'm sure they were content to boost revenue instead.

Either way, at this point I believe Sony and MS rather keep prices relatively high for profits. The price war days on hardware are seemingly over.

There were a plethora of advantages even if the prices didn't move much with console revisions... Lower power consumption, less noise, less heat, more reliable...
Even if Sony did drop features to get there. (Ironically Microsoft did the opposite and added features like Wifi.)

There wasn't a rapid movement in price though at the start of the 7th gen because Microsoft and Sony were taking some financial losses on the hardware... The 8th gen is very conservative from a hardware standpoint as well, with very much fixed costs that aren't moving much.
