217w ago - If you've been following videogame news, you know that Sony addresses all questions about unannounced information in the same way: "We don't comment on rumors and speculation."
However, there's a tidbit burning up the Internet as we speak, and it says a big announcement is coming tomorrow.
Sony won't say if that's true, but the chatter is interesting enough that it actually got Sony to launch a comment from SCEA PR Manager Al De Leon about what the rumored news won't be.
To quote: "As we have stated previously, we do not have plans for a PS3 price drop, and any rumors to that effect are false and are the result of speculation," De Leon wrote.
"SCEA remains focused on the long-term momentum of PS3. With the industry's best software lineup this year, combined with our most aggressive marketing campaign to date, we remain confident in our approach and the value we're delivering with PS3."
That's all well and good, but it doesn't douse the rumors that the news is actually that the PlayStation 2 will be dropping to $99.99. What will tomorrow bring? We'll have to wait and see.

I know I'm late on the bandwagon for this topic but I think it's worth the input. I know the PS2 dropped to $100 a few weeks ago but apparently Best Buy didn't get the memo. I was there no more than 4 days ago and the PS2 slim was $129.99.
That leads me to speculate 1 of 2 things....
either Best Buy is out of the loop about the price drop and are completely unaware of it
they know all about but they're marketting rep's are dumb enough to think that people will pay $30 more at their store, before cost of a warranty, instead of heading a few doors down to a Toys R Us, Game Stop or similar store and get it cheaper.
As far as I know, retailers don't turn much of a profit on consoles and I also understand everyone wants to make a living in the U.S economy but they're losing money this way.
