What Happened to the PS3 Slim Rumor?
Posted by XanTium | 4-6-2009 22:11 EST

 
From ubergizmo.com:


The Sony Press Conference was arguably as impressive as the Microsoft one (which was a huge surprise, by the way). Many PlayStation fans were ecstatic about the upcoming Sony Motion Controller and there was one last thing that they were hoping for: a price cut for the PS3. It didn't happen of course. So, what happened to the PS3 Slim rumors?

Apparently nothing, but don't dismiss it quite yet. For one, big price cuts usually come at the end of the year. Secondly, while Sony is fighting to get some market share, it would be really dumb to announce a cost-reduced version coming later in the year. In all likelihood, Sony will avoid talking about any cost-reduction to avoid stalling the sales of current PS3 models.

And because Sony doesn't want to alienate their retail partners, they will probably help them sell current models before an upcoming one shows up, so keep your eyes open for stocking/availability issues. We're not confirming that the PS3 slim exists - it is just a rumor- but it is about certain that eventually the PS3 price will come down. It is a matter of when.

Again the PS3 slim pics looked awful, i hope they spend another year making it look nice. I think it was just a prototype in my opinion. Also I wish these people would stop asking for price cuts, it makes it sound like you don't have a job. And if you don't have a job you shouldn't be saving up for a PS3 laugh.gif gee I got my PS3 in five months ago, it really wasn't that hard to save up at all, just buy it if you want one or you will be waiting for ever!

While I agree with your sentiment, I think a price cut would be good to be competitive. Competitiveness breeds innovation. Besides, wouldn't you like more people to play against online?
