Well the price cut appears to be working, as the PS3 has overtaken the Wii as the #1 seller in the videogame category on Amazon.com. In its own mini sales war, the SIXAXIS has also shot up to the #4 slot above the Wiimote, which is at #8.
WOW I guess alot of people planned on the cut happening...well i will definetly be saving for a used one!!

a little rough math says if you only sold 10 one day and sold 280 the next day you have a 2800% increase in sales. this is good news for sony but without context it means nothing

if you sold 10 one day, then selling 280 is obviously a big deal bro....

umm I think Sony priced the PS3 so high at first because they really didnt want 2 launch yet and were forced 2. So they set the costs high, updated firmware, got linux out... fixed some problems in the fab and then made their own launch (price drop)

The PS3 price cut is good news to me. Hopefully they will cut them again around the holiday season. I wish they had kept the 20 gb model in circulation because one of them at $400 is something I would definitely buy.
Like Rachet and Clank! I think I'm going to go play that now.

Good luck Sony, but remember this is just Amazon, store figures could be different.

Well they lose money on the selling of the hardware but make it up with the software. Them selling more PS3s equates to more games being sold and a massive increase in the permeation of Blu-Ray into the mainstream. If they win the format war which at this point seems quite likely then it will make them mountains of money.

In all fairness, the only reason they're "outselling" the wii is because amazon probably didnt have any Wiis in stock and it's hard to "outsell" something of which there is nothing there.
But at $500 the ps3 does look alot more tempting, thats a good deal, even if sony is getting reamed, so I win on all sides sony gets reamed I get a blu-ray/nextgen system. sweeeeeeeeeet
