Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumors Mounting Over $399 40GiB PS3

The resident mole at Arstechnica's Oposable Thumbs blog, who by the way has a pretty good track record, is pointing to this as the lineup for Sony's american holiday season:


 - Playstation 3 80GB for $499;
 - Playstation 3 40GB for $399;
 - Spiderman 3 as a packin for either one, or both;
 - Playstation 2 for $99.

I would buy one if it goes that low O.O



                 With regard to Call of Duty 4 having an ultra short single player campaign, I guess it may well have been due to the size limitations of DVD on the XBox 360, one of various limitations multi-platform game designers will have to take into consideration-Mike B

Proud owner of 360wii and DS/psp              

Game trailers-Halo 3 only dissapointed the people who wanted to be dissapointed.

Bet with Harvey Birdman that Lost Odyssey will sell more then Blue dragon did.

After charging $599 for a PS3 80Gig (+ game), they would have some serious BALLS to charge $399 for the same thing... with a slightly smaller hard disk.

I can't see it happening, and it would make a massive dent in their pockets if it was true.

Then again this is Sony - they aren't exactly the most rational company around.

Kaz Hirai said they wanted to have a single SKU.



I'm not seeing that happening this year.

BTW, hard drives are rarely measured in GiB.  A GiB is 2^30 bytes, a GB is 10^9 bytes.  HD manufacturers always quote GB because the number is larger.

this is probably a rumor being spread by microsoft so that people continue to wait for another price cut instead of buy it now.



currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

that would be real interesting if it happened. Both the PS3 and PS2 will def. start selling a lot more.



The PS3 really needs a price point like that - but will it happen anytime soon? I don't know....

I think price is one of the biggest obstacles the console faces right now.

You are correct. I will change my post. As to the title, no can do.
