Sony Denies PS3 Price Drop

50°
347w ago - At CES this year, Kaz Hirai, the President of Sony Computer Entertainment, stated that the PlayStation 3 was going to be profitable in 2008; unlike the huge losses it made for Sony in 2007.

After Hirai's statement the production costs were reported to be cut in half from the high $800 production costs down to $400 for each unit. Due to this news it sounded unlikely that the price was going to be cut again. Rumors were beginning to circulate that said the price was going to be cut to $299 in late January.

Combining the statement of Kaz Hirai and the $400 production costs, it doesn't really seem to increase the chance of a price cut so early in the year. That is probably why Sony confirmed to Bloomberg that they have no plans to cut the price of the PlayStation 3 in Japan, North America or Europe. Sorry for the people waiting for the PS3 to drop another $100, but it probably won't happen any time soon.

Stay tuned!

White PS3 Coming To America

650°
347w ago - Some filings over on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) Web site have revealed that Sony plan to manufacture the white, 40GB PS3 for the American market.

The first filings were made in October of last year, but were initially withheld from the public at Sony's request, so as to "avoid premature release of sensitive information prior to marketing or release of this product to the public".

The filings are, however, now clearly visible on the FCC's site, including pics of the Commission's testing rig and Sony's declaration that the white PS3 will be manufactured according to FCC regulations. Now all we need is a release date, and we're all set.

FCC Filing

Great news for people that want something else other than the standard black! A sleek, white system might be just what the doctor ordered for people looking to jump on the Playstation 3 Train. Let's just hope this announcement will soon go hand-in-hand with the $299 price drop.
