Default Now THIS news smells of desperation!!

The Playstation 3 was released in early November of 06 in Japan and according to THIS article retailers are already slashing the price of the 20gig model by over $80!!! Things are not looking to good for the folks over at SCE. Has this ever happened with a new console release?? It's been barely 2 months and already some retailers have decided to reduce the price by a hefty amount... I won't jump to conclusions but this doesn't seem right to me. What do you guys think?

Wow you people are just f*cked in the head. First you complain that it is too much, so when price cuts get made you complain. Jesus christ.

It's not a complaint... it's more of a surprise. This console is only 2 months old!!! It would make more sense if the price reduction happened after a year or two but 2 months?!?!

Well according to the article Japanese gamers are NOT buying the Playstation 3. It seems like the diehard Sony fans have already purchased their console so now gamers are actually looking at the avaliable content and have decided to wait until quality titles are released before parting with their hard earn cash. At the end the real question is "How long can Sony afford to wait until gamers start buying the PS3 in large numbers?". Since the big guns (MGS, GT5 etc) are not due until the end of this year or later I see a long drought in Sony's future. (this is my own opinion of course)

Seems like you are reading strange things into the man's post. I don't see any complaining..only him saying "that's gotta hurt!"

If this was the Wii the headline would be more like this: "Nintendo Kicks A$$!!!" and I would agree.

Funny Kotaku knows everything bad happening to the PS3, are they like the self appointed police in charge for Sony's downfall?

At one time used DS Lites were more expensive than the 360 in Japan so thats desperation. If your going to look at the PS3 short falls first do so to the 360 because it is a monumental failure there.

Nah. You are comparing appples and oranges. To do that kind of comparing then you'd need the 360 to be a monumental failure here in the States...which it's not.

This is about hometown heroes not looking so...heroic.
