I don't think they'll cut the price till Spring 08, but if they do in October it would be smart. I know alot of people that want a PS3 but are waiting for the price to drop before they get one.

yeah, if they dropped it to around ?375 in uk, they'd have a few more sales!

They would haved to drop it to about ?350 i think as some shops are already dropping it to ?399 they really need to generate more interest in it with the delays and the high prices they are going to have to pull something fairly big off

maybe if they dropped ?5, then PSP games dropped to ?30 aswell, they'd have a strong position in the market!

Wouldnt it be great if they dropped it during the summer, like in may or june? Its not a good sign that games like motorstorm and def jam still arent ramping up ps3 sales much. To be honest Sony should have included the latest firmware features and the PS Home features when the console was launched. I think its a bit confusing for mainstream consumers when a console has to to roll out new features and firmware every few months.

Def Jam Sucks, where i got my PS3 has only sold 4 copies, compared to around 30 copies of RFOM, MS, RR7 Etc.

Yeah, they might sell more, but you gotta remember the profit margins. Each console sold is still a loss - they're only making money on the games sold. So they might cut console price in october (but I can't see that happening) but I really can't imagine cutting game prices yet. JMO, a price cut AFTER the holidays.
