Reeves: No PS3 Price Cut This Year

50°
336w ago - 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."

You can't really expect them to announce a price cut early, can you?
 

PSP 2001 vs PSP 3000 - The Comparison

336w ago - Kotaku have tracked down a comparison held between the PSP 2001 and PSP 3000. Now the original site was in a foreign language (my ignorance narrows it down to Taiwanese or Klingon) so the information will be presented here in pictures.

And that's all we need really, isn't it? The feature list for the new version is a little thin.

The below left photo I believe shows the screens anti-glare ability... Yup, the 3000 is the less glary. On the right is the update that will make sure you take the correct one out with you, the expansion and chroming of the ring on the back.

Finally, under them is the case makeover you were waiting for...
