To quote: Peter Edward, director of Sony's PlayStation Home platform group, has told SPOnG that motion controller support for Home is likely, though not set in stone just yet.
Asked whether we'll see a use for the wand popping up in Home, Edward told us at the GameHorizon conference in Gateshead that "I'm sure that at some point in the future, it's something that will happen".
Explaining what the circumstances would have to be, Edward said, "That's something that I guess there would have to be a case that instigates that development. If one of our internal teams or a third party or whoever, had an amazing way that that could be implemented within Home... and there was sufficient impetus behind it, then we would have to work together on that.

Sony says that it is losing $50 on every PS3 it sells right now. If they were to reduce the cost $100 they would go from losing 11% to 33%.
This is why it will never happen and why XBOX360 will always out selling ahead. The fact that Microsoft can support losing 33% is why the XBOX360 can get a big price cut.
When Sony has a new console ready then the price will drop, but I believe they need to spend more time on their firmware and extending their warranties than cutting the price of the console. Sony, are you listening?
To quote: In late February an analyst with Janco Partners claimed a price drop announcement from Sony was due "in the next couple days." Nearly a month later, no word on so much as a sales snip.
But Sony's still losing about $50 per PS3, according to Business Week, which pegged Sony's costs at $448.73 per system as recently as December 2008. If Sony dropped the retail price of the PS3 by $100, they'd increase their per unit losses by nearly a quarter ? from 11 to 33 percent.
