Sony - Pressured to cut PS3 Price

Do you hear that???

......................................

That's the collective breath holding of millions of would be
PS3 purchasers and gamers, who desperately want
Sony's Playstation 3 to get a drastic if not reasonable price cut.

Software Developer and Publisher; Blizzard Entertainment - Activision;
have recently stepped up the pressure on SCE of America
saying; " When we look at 2010 and 2011,
we might want to consider if we support the console......"

Perhaps giving a brief foresight into what Activision may do
in the future in regards to Playstation 3, 3rd Party Support;
perhaps ditching the system and long running mutual partnership all-together.

It is currently being speculated that the PS3 may in fact get
this price cut by late August of this year; co-siding with the release
of Madden NFL 10 (BTW that's what's it's being called Madden TEN, not 2010); to cut the price on the PS3 from $399 to something less......
by $100 bucks by August.

$299???

Would you buy the PS3; regardless of GB version;
at $299? Is that enough of a price reduction for you
to commit to buying a Playstation 3?
Or will the 360's relative economic and gaming superlatives,
keep you loyal to your 360 and Wii (since majority of households may
have both of these consoles)?

That sounds like a deal. If it weren't a Sony product, I would consider buying it, but I've sworn off Apple and Sony, so that sort of limits me, there. Maybe it'll encourage Microsoft to bundle more with their 360.

seriously, they misuse their power for crap like this all the time.

Seems like the PS3 120 GB Slim rumors are resurfacing
thanks to the discussions about a so called price cut.

Damn....

If that version comes out....

So long 60 GB model.

Even with the slim model I'm not convinced they can cut the price by $100.

Sony just still doesn't get it.

get what?

I bought the 80gig for $400 last year. Worth every penny. Sony is already losing money on the PS3, so idk why they would cut the price more; unless they made them cheaper.
