I don't think the average buyer knows about the casflow of Sony or SCE. So that won't be the reason for not buying a PS3.

All the more reason for them to see a price drop in PS3 = death of Dreamcast

Price Cut would plunge Sony even deeper into Red and send warning flags to lots of potential buyers.

not really if they can lower the price of blu ray players they can lower the price of the ps3

If you think they can lower the production of a console by 350-450 dollars within its first year to achieve 100-200 dollar drop on the MRSP and still break even without a profit then you need not bother with facts or arguments to convince anyone but yourself.

people on this site really need to stop being fanboys... Alot of people dont even realize i own a 360..... my point is if they can significantly lower blu ray players they can afford to lower the cost of ps3;s....   Last time i checked you dont work at SONY OR have anything to do with sony...  YOU KNOW NO FACTS... you dont know production costs or anything... only thing you know is what you see off the internet... so until you know exactly how much they have lowered costs then SSShhhhhhhhh

I think with a pricecut $200 they will still lose on hardware. The good thing is it will sell much better and they will have a chance to compensate the loses with software sales.




1/ I dont think they will make a 200$ price cut since it is too big for a 1 year old console that costs more than the price that it is sold.
A 100$ price cut is more probable.
And yes Sony has made a price cut on BlueRay player but PS3 is not only a blueRay player. It will not be so easy to make a massive price cut.

2/ Why do you compare it to Dreamcast, a console that the majority of the people dont know ?
If there is a price cut, people will be "happy"
I dont know if they will sell more console but people will consider that Sony make some effort to make their console cheaper. And Some people will may be make the step.

3/ Of course, a price cut on the wii or Xbox360 is possible too

The same logic can be turned back against you. If you have no facts to show price drop can be done without going into red, then you have no more room to talk either. And since we was talking about whether they be futher in the red or not after another price cut, I don't see how them doing the price cut anway prove anything. If you have no evidence to support your claim then you have no right to yell at others for doing the same when proof is something you need to give. If I KNOW NO FACTS, then perhaps you show me some to educate me or be silent yourself.

If you can't talk without being angry, then perhaps you shouldn't be talking.
