Tecmo Koei: “We would welcome a price cut for PS3″
Tecmo Koei CEO Kenji Matsubara, has said that during meeting with Sony, he requested a price cut for PS3.
“Whenever I discuss this with Sony reps I always ask them: ‘Please cut the price’, but I don’t have a clear view on Sony’s situation,” Matsubara told CVG. “Yes, from a publisher’s point of view we would welcome a price cut for PS3, and we are waiting, definitely.
“It’s definitely a way of boosting the PS3 market, but it’s Sony’s strategy and I don’t know their cost structure. Sony introduced cutting-edge technology in the PS3, that’s why people in the industry accept that the PS3 cost is so high, but we’d welcome a price cut.”
So would the rest of the world, apparently.
