Is there any truth that Sony was going to drop the price of the PS3 in the near future?

I ask this because if Sony does drop the price I will pick one up in a heart beat.

I have a Wii and a 360 but I am a electronics geeks so a PS3 would be cool but I don't really need it, I just want it.:D

My opinion is that they should, do I KNOW if it will happen? Nope.

i doubt it'll ever happen. sony is losing alot from ps3. all sony has to do is come up with more games and maybe onilne contents in psn then ps3 might sell more. home looks promising.

hehe it's nice to have three consoles. currently ps3 is my blu-ray player. and man, motorstorm is really fun and a bit difficult.

Ain't that the truth. I've come close to throwing the controller more than once. :)

AHAHAHAHAAH!

Maybe I'll buy a used one or a referb. I really do like the PS3, I just can't see spending that amount of money when the 360 can do the samethings with gaming. Blue Ray is cool but not important to me. When the market decides a winner between Blue Ray and HD DVD I will buy a very nice independent console.

You know what a 20gig system is really not that bad of a price for a geek like me.

If I could score a used one that would be cool. I won't buy one for a month or so.

LOL! I kinda want the ps3 for Motorstorm and of course FF. :D I loved playing Motorstorm at the shops.

Sony has said repeatedly that there will be no price drop in the near future, but they could change their mind without warning. While I have no idea if Sony is going to do a price drop, I fully expect Microsoft to announce a price drop of the 360 to coincide with Sony's.

the thing I'm kind of worried about, is if they do make it cheaper, they use a cheaper bd-rom drive and then they bring back the problem of the previous generation or use a cheaper or quieter fan or some ****. that would suck.

people are complaing too damn much about the good price though, so sony may give them what they want.

if it was such a good price, one would think that more people would think its a good deal and buy one eh?

well, i should've said that I think it has a price:fun ratio so low that it's rediculous. as 3dfx would say about their wonderful hardware back in the day.

if by low you mean for the average person its price 10000000000000000000: to fun 1 is low then ok

Drop the price a little and I may just buy one. There are some nice exclusives coming up and it beats buying a stand alone Blu Ray player.

not exactly.

low ratio, how i set it up, based on my opinion, was speaking in favor of the ps3.

Don't expect a price drop, Sony is being sued for AACS use (blueray/hd-dvd content protection) http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070531-encryption-vendor-claims-aacs-infringes-its-patents-sues-sony.html

That lawsuit and the one for the Blu-Ray disc protection are BS, How is Sony the only one sued when many other companies use the same exact method? Sony does not own the medium nor are they the only one that uses and developes it. Both lawsuits should have been directed towards the BDA, not just Sony.

most lawsuits are formed by ignorance actually.

just like most, if not all kevj posts are formed out of frequent ignorance.

hopefully the judge will toss this one.

Same here, Your winning all the way till the last turn and you crash and have to respawn, putting you back to 11th place. Wasted 8min. of racing :o

^^ The best part is when your inching towards the finish line, your turbo boost is maxed and you blow yourself up to advance and take 1st :)

LOL!!

I didn't bother with that game cause the demo pissed me off way too much. I don't like the way the vehicles handle at all so it wasn't even fun racing. I did rent it though to give it a second chance, and some of the other coures are a little more fun, but I still am not crazy about that game.
