219w ago - Rumor has it the PS3 is set for a price drop on March 22nd, at least according to an EB employee who reportedly let this one slip.
To quote: Last night one of community members was in an EB Games store and an employee mentioned a PS3 price drop occurring Sunday March 22nd just in advance of the Game Developer's Conference (GDC).
He went on to say that Sony will be issuing a press release on the Saturday before the drop and that EB was already prepared for the upcoming price-drop.
The current "rumor" is that the PlayStation 3 80GB console will retail for USD $300. That would be a $99 price reduction in the console, bringing it closer to reach for many gamers. However, be prepared for Sony to refuse to comment or straight out say this is untrue, it wouldn't be the first time they've pulled that stunt.
It's in Sony's best interest to hide the price drop from gamers because we'll halt purchasing of the PS3 until The Price drop occurs.

Most companies have a policy that if the price changes within a certain amount of days after your purchase then they will pay you the difference.
[QUOTE=Brandhole272]I've read soo much about how "the developement and hardware on the PS3 have low costs", why didn't they just start low? It just seems like they started it out soo high because everyone wanted it, so there's a lot more money for our company.[/QUOTE]
Obviously you didn't read the fact that when the console launched they were actually losing money on the hardware at the price point they had it at. As the console gets older the price of the manufacturing will go down, and when the company is able to do so, they will pass it on to the consumer in the form of a price drop.
[QUOTE=ichibaka]Remember a certain quote from some infamous snobby retard, "People will get a second job to buy the PS3"? Goes to show these fraktards got way over their head and think we dumb brats who want their stuff like babies want milk.[/QUOTE]
