Zucas - E3 is the entertainment world, and Sony is gonna take it by storm. I think it's gonna hurt the Wii sales. Becuase the news are gonna be' PS3 PS3 PS3 OMG PS3.
And the Wii will go Wii all the way Home. (PS3 home might I add)

You're hilarious. People are gonna be like OMG PS3 IS STILL $500 DOLLARS. LOL. AND IT HAS A DRAGON GAME.

I say that with the new games coming out, and Home, the PS3 will start selling at about 33-36K in America. What about you?


 they are losing now 100$ per console

cut price 100$

 

total losing 200$...

 

BUT

maybe also that ps3 is over priced!!!!

we know that sony plays often with numbers...

 

OR

it's real.

and so this is a prove that sony is doing bad... 

 

IN THE END

99% there will be no price cut...

Sony has always stardet slowly. Look at the first year of PS2 games, look at the first year of PS1 games. Sony has always made releasing the machine the first priority and getting games onto it the second. They have changed nothing about how they run their console business with the exception of having to fix PR issues created by their own hubris. Other than that, this is business as usual for Sony.

 

This most be the most popular myth in the gaming history why do you not take a look on the PS3 vs PS2 sales.

 

Japan, the PS2 was at the same point of life at 3 million sold. PS3 has not passed 1 million.

USA, PS2 above 3 millions, PS3 1.5 millions.

Difference in launchprice?

PS3 could easily keep up with PS2, if it had the same price.



what will a $100 price cut get me? hm...an extra game controller with no rumble ($49.99+tax)...and then not enough cash for a game. nice! personally, i wouldn't have cared between a 20gig and 60gig. dropping a 60gig to the price of a 20gig, i'd rather pay 399 for a 20 gig.



Currently loving my Wii x2, Xbox 360 Pro & Xbox 360 Arcade, and Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children Limited "Cloud Black" 160GB PS3

I think it was a bad idea for Sony to drop the price so quickly, especially in America. Not only does it look desperate, but they don't have the games to back it up. They should have waited until GTA or something like that. I don't see this having almost any long term effect, and the short term effect isn't going to be spectacular either.

 I don't think I have ever stated that PS3 couldn't keep up with PS2 if they had the same price. I am just pointing out that the truth is that Sony isn't always starting slow.

we'll see a brief spike then watch it settle back down to its current pace.

 Well, there could be another price drop at before X-Mass.
