“Industry sources” point to $100 PS3 cut this August

Tuesday, 9th June 2009 07:49 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia said in a note yesterday that chatter’s pointing to a summer price cut for PS3.

“Industry sources indicate Sony is planning a $100 price cut on the PS3 in mid-August, just prior the launch of Madden (8/18) and the start of the back to school shopping season. This will naturally be a positive for the industry,” she said.

Hey, everyone! Gamescom’s on in mid-August!

Thanks, Industrygamers.

    I know a few people who still think the PS3 is just too pricey. I think if the price does drop then there will be a gold rush!

    I’ll be astonished if they drop it $100 in one go. Would be a great move on their part, but… they’ve not been too hot on the ‘great moves’ of late. $50 max.

    So… knowing the way these things usually work, that would mean a £250 PS3 in the UK.

    until the PS3 is under £200 even with the awesome games it has that I want to play I just :( can’t pull myself to hand over the money.

    I might finally buy one, at that price drop, but I’d still feel dirty as I handed over the money.

    Sony, in their ivory tower, really have deserved the kicking they’ve got this generation.

    “Sony, in their ivory tower, really have deserved the kicking they’ve got this generation”

    I really don’t understand where this misguided viewpoint comes from.

    You honestly think that with the yen in the hole and the price of manufacturing that they’re making money on the ps3 and laughing about it ?

    In which case you’re a fucking idiot.

    It’s 300 euro in Poland already, as the polish currency has gone down. It’s a PAL version. If they drop the price down, ps3 should cost 230-250 euro in there, that may match 360s price.

    $299 is the sweet spot they should try and reach for maximum percieved consumer value.
