Rumor: Inside Source Claims PS3 & PSP Price Cut in Early June

400°
274w ago - According to an internal 'proven' source of French Web site [Register or Login to view links], it's been unofficially confirmed that both the PS3 and PSP will receive price drops in early June.

This would obviously correspond with E3, which is scheduled to run between June 2 and June 4.

To quote: Although the source didn't reveal the new price for the PS3, it did provide the new price point for the handheld: 169 Euros, down from 189.

Of course, even if accurate, this information may only apply to the European/PAL regions, but we find it hard to believe that Sony wouldn't have this pair of price cuts spread worldwide. Additionally, the mystery source confirmed the existence of the much-rumored PSP 2, which should be available for the end of the year.

We've already received many pieces of evidence for a new PSP model; either the PSP-4000 or a PSP 2, and that includes the theory that it will be designed to compete with the iPhone. It sounds plausible, but with nothing concrete to solidify the claims, we still can't call it anything but "rumor and speculation."

And if you don't already know, Sony's business policy has always been the same: they simply don't comment on rumor and speculation.
 

Sony's PSP Detective Game Negotiates June 2009 Release

50°
275w ago - Does a game called Okage: Shadow King ring a bell? This PSP game is from the same developer, Zener Works.

First seen at Tokyo Game Show, Diamond and the Sound of a Gunshot is a visual novel where players negotiate tense situations.

See how the portraits push each other? It's more than a dramatic effect. This lets players know how close they are at pushing their negotiations.

Even though it hasn't gotten much attention, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will release Diamond and the Sound of a Gunshot in on June 18. There's little chance that Sony will give this game a retail release, but if Patapon 2 can go digital why can't this?

250°
275w ago - According to GamingVice.net (linked above), the silver PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 Controller will be making its U.S. debut this June.

To quote: I work at Gamestop and according to our shipment notifications, we are receiving Silver PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 Controllers in the month of June.

Here is the story: At Gamestop the PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 Controller White Price Sticker Reads: PlayStation 3 Dualshock Controller. Recently we had to resticker them and the new stickers read: PlayStation 3 Dualshock Controller Black. (Check it out at your nearest Gamestop).

Anyway, we figured maybe they were planning on coming out with new colors for the controller because of the new relabeling.

A week later on our shipment notification we are expected to receive PlayStation 3 Dualshock Wireless Controller Silver in the month of June!

This brings up an interesting point, we all know E3 is June 2-4, so we will a Silver PlayStation 3 be revealed from Sony at this years E3 to coincide with the Silver PlayStation 3 DualShock Wireless Controller.
