227w ago - Update: It appears as though he was just joking, with a follow-up tweet stating:
"I keed... I keed! But wouldn't that rock?!?! Hey, gimme a break! It's late and I'm working on a Sunday nite! Sue me! Love ya'll! "
We could have yet another in a long line of PS3 Price Drop confirmations as follows..
Last night David Jaffe's Twitter shows the following tweet:
"Sh*t! It's on. PS3 price drop news from JAPAN! $199 US dollars?!? They were NOT kidding...sh*t! SWEET!"
If this is true, Sony's PlayStation 3 console now has the price to compete with the less expensive Nintendo Wii and Microsoft's Xbox 360.
Although David Jaffe's work (most notebly in God of War and Twisted Metal) is admired by many gamers, some are already questioning how that makes him an authority on the retail price of the PS3... only time will tell for sure.

That would be really nice to see the price drop down that low, then maybe just maybe my broke friends would be able to affoard the system, I myself would pick up another system to put in the bedroom, and I am sure others would also look into picking up a secound maybe even a third system, it has been said before that the magic price is around 200 to sell systems and I am sure this would help sony out a lot and if the decreased there cost of manufacturing by %70 it could just might be plausable.
That would be nuts. I could only imagine the storm this would cause with all the PS3 haters. The would be reduced to complaining about PS2 BC or the fact you cannot have sex with it. I personally think it will be $299 ish. $199 would be ridiculous, I would prolly buy another one just to be awesome.
