NO PS3 Price Cut at Leipzig

Leipzig, Germany – SCEE spokesman Nick Caplin says “It’s not going to happen. If you’re coming for that you’ll be disappointed,” speaking about Sony PlayStation’s 3 price cut.

Those expecting for Sony to announce a price cut for the PS3 aren’t getting their wish this year. In Leipzig, on August 20-22, Europe’s Biggest Video Games Fair, many expected Sony to make this announcement of a price cut. With sales of the PS3 getting stronger in this year, the PS3 is no longer required to lower it’s prices. I mean Sony has already dropped their prices from the very high price of $599 for the 60gb system. One this writer picked up…

In the 12 months ending March 31, Sony sold 9.24 million units, below its initial estimates of 11 million sales.

    The PS3 is picking up speed. I think with LBP and GOW3 they will sell consoles with or without a price cut.

    That’s a good point, but when it comes down to more mainstream consumers, wouldn’t that rumored $199 Xbox look more attractive?

    I’d classify the $199 as more of a confirmed rumor. Personally, I would have to say the Xbox 360 even at current price is probably the best buy for most gamers. The PS3 is the best system when it comes to specs, but they still don’t have the best games. The Wii is great if you plan to play games with groups of people in person.

    People knock me for my support of the 360 but I do think it’s the most attractive option even without the price reduction. Hardware-wise it’s a flaming piece of junk, but it has the games more people want to play.

  4. I thought they announced a September price cut? What happened? EDIT: I check the real article and they’re not announcing one at the Leipzig games fair. I wonder if this means the previous one still counts? Or if that was bogus. Sigh, 100$ more down the drain.

    the price cut was just a rumor
