“No plans” for March PS3 price cut, says SCEA

Tuesday, 25th November 2008 07:26 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Sony has officially taken the PR laser to yet another rumorous growth on its back – this time, a potential PS3 price cut. In short, no price slashing in March 2009. None. Definitely not.

“There are no plans for a price reduction on PS3 in March 09, and anything reported on or discussed otherwise is purely rumor or speculation,” a Sony Computer Entertainment America rep told Edge.

They say things change over time. In “their” grand spirit, we’re waiting until March to toss our hearts behind this one.

    Well the rumour came from SCEE, who are completely independent of SCEA on things like pricing. But then they obviously wouldn’t admit to a March price cut now anyway.

    I guess they’re doing it in February instead.

    Of course they won’t admit it, confirming there’s a price cut coming 4 months from now would have a negative impact on current sales with potential buyers opting to wait for the price cut.

    No commercial company would admit to this sort of thing. Even if the source of the rumour was reliable.

    Which, as we’ve seen with the behaviour of other hardware manufacturers, isn’t to say it won’t happen. Just that this is ‘business as usual’.

    OK, we get it, “no plans for March PS3 price cut”, right… Any plans for a EU PlayStation credit card, with similar initiatives, then?
