Seems like rumors are spinning that directly right after Sony's E3 Conference that the PS3 will get a $100 price drop making the system $499. Lets wait and see....

Well that's a start. I was kinda hoping they would try to stomach 50 bucks more and go for a 150 dollar price cut. They need to close the gap as fast as possible.

Sony seems to have a lot of hype surrounding it for this years E3....Next week!:D

Damn you...I bought mine about 3 weeks ago...and completely missed the free blu ray movies (even though the choices arn't that good), it would have been nice...Now they cut the price? Jeez...Talk about wrong place/wrong time...lol

If these cuts come through to AU then I'll probably feel the same... Though I feel the console is easily worth what I paid.

Heh, there is a slight chance that they don't drop the price this year. They could try to be ****y and just rely on the potential great line up they have coming for August-December....that would be silly but who knows what Sony has planned.

However, there best bet is to drop the price 100 bucks and make sure all the games they have shown for end of year stay on schedule.

They will probably subsidise it by putting the UK prices up. LOL

Rip off Britain always delivers.

It is kind of hard to say now because of "evidence" like this:
http://www.joystiq.com/2007/07/05/rumor-circuit-city-drops-ps3-price-by-100-week-of-july-15/

So I guess if you are in the market to buy a PS3 it's best to wait till around 7/15.

Right after E3, huh?

heh, Sony has a ton of hype going into this year's E3.

IMO a $100 price drop is still not enough to justify a purchase. Price drop plus some great games = purchase for me! ;)

Yep. I love Rip-off Britain. The thing that pisses me off the most though is the Lcd monitor prices.

So the Elite is a great purchase eh? It's only $20 cheaper and well offers less out of the box...

It's entirely possible that Sony is simply shining folks on until they can officially announce the drop themselves...

Some target stores have lowered the PS3 price ahead of schedule that Sony denies
