So, the Xbox 360 is receiving a hefty price cut across all models early next month, does Sony feel pressured to do the same?
In short, no, not yet. Speaking in a recent interview, SCEE head honco David Reeves explained that software like LittleBigPlanet will drive PS3 sales throughout the remainder of this year and that there would not be a price cut announcement:
"No. We’re not going to drop the price this year."
Too bad! But then again, maybe it’s PR-speak for "we’re dropping the price in a couple months."
