Sony makes it pretty clear: no PS3 price drops this holiday season
Posted by XanTium | 30-10-2008 0:44 EST

From engadget.com:

There's no doubt that Microsoft's Xbox 360 will have the price advantage this holiday season, and if you were hoping to see a bona fide price cut following Sony's introduction of the $399.99 80GB PlayStation 3, you'll probably be waiting 'til late 2009. Speaking at the Gamer 3.0 conference in London this week, Sony's own Ray Maguire was quoted as saying that the pressure for a price drop from consumers was always there, but given that it "has a business to run" and shareholders to please, it probably won't be decreasing the PS3's price before the end of 2008.

with all of the 'belt tightening' going on around the world I wouldn't be surprised if the PS3 ended up at the bottom of the sales list this holiday season. With the Wii, 360, PSP, DS and PS2 all dramatically cheaper combined with the fact that the majority of games on 360 & PS3 are cross platform Sony will be lucky to sell any PS3's to the average buyer. This won't help the fortunes of Sony who are already reporting huge losses. Could the recession be the last nail in the PS3's coffin?
