Sony Corp. has no plans to cut the price of its PlayStation 3 at present to pep up demand and counter surging sales of Nintendo's rival game console Wii, Sony's president said on Friday.

"At present we have no plans," to cut the PS3 price, Ryoji Chubachi told Reuters in an interview.

Ridiculous. The PS3 is a great system, but no one can really afford it!! They'd be flying off the shelves if developers would get their games out and if the PS3 was at a competitive price with the 360.

They really need to get on the ball and make either some hardware changes to lower production cost or just give us gamers a break!

And they will continue to say that until they cut the prices. That way if you're kinda/sorta looking to buy one, you'll buy it at the higher price.

I know this is a new story (posted 5 hrs ago), but it seems every week there's one story showing how sony is going to cut prices (this week it's the office depo add) and there's an immediate reply from sony saying "We won't do it!"

I thought that was just in Office Depos...kinda like "Hey, we'll knock off $100 for no reason" kind of thing
*shrugs* (thinks to himself that we need a shrugging smiley)

No, I didn't miss it. Sorry for upsetting you? Just because a handful of stores (so far I've only seen Office Depot lower prices) lower their PS3 prices, it doesn't mean Sony cut the MSRP of the PS3 or even the cost at which it sells it to the stores.

You don't have to be so rude, you know... You are a great member and provide a lot of information, but you really ruin it when you show a bit of your attitude.

well at 500 it would just make it awsome but even at 600 its still worth it compared to the price. i mean the elite is 480 and you need to spend 180 more for it to do hddvd. so the ps3 is actually cheaper if you want hd movies as well but for just gaming then i can see the price being a problem but atleast you wont have to return them every year to get it fixed lol jk

Although, I agree. Lol.

The PS3 has never been "overpriced" considering how much Blu-ray players cost + how much an xbox360 "Actually" costs. Its just never been fully kicking and hasn't had all the games to back up its more expensive HD content.
