    No Price Cut Announced.

    Our loveable chap Kaz Hirai has said this in regards to price.

    03:30.28 -"Price is a very important aspect, but at the same time the urgent matter is to what extent we can further enrich the software titles."
    He says "there is [a] possibility" for a price cut in the future.

    Why would he announce a pricecut at a keynote? No way he would be able to implement it immediately, and if there was ANY period of delay, sales would plummet to 0 during that time! He will likely announce the price cut later, like around the time of the beginning of the holiday season (November, maybe just before Thanksgiving is my guess)

    If the price drop isn't happening at the exact moments of the announcement then it's pointless. It would be stupid for them to give a date of when the price drop will take place. Then no one would go buy the system now. They would just wait.

    It was during the Q & A. No price cut at TGS pretty much confirmed.

    Apollo your really getting annoying. If your really this upset, please I beg of you go back the the green side. Seems like all you do now is $#@! and moan. Price cut in the future. Hmmm future could be a month from now. And why do you care anyway. You already bought yours.

    I'm reporting what I find out Mr Cyclops or maybe you need another eye to see that? No price cut announced. Of course it may happen later, but nothing as of now and that itself is newsworthy as some expected it to be announced.

    Apollo you could have put all these thoughts in your "Keynote summarized" thread instead of creating 2. This really isn't the place to vent...

    Also, I think that we still need to wait and see what the new SKU filed with the FCC is all about.

    Notice this is the TOKYO game show... We want a US price drop (and european) not a Japanese one, so... Yeah, they're not gonna announce a US price drop in Japan... The US is where it's really doing the worst, and the price drop is most needed in Europe, so it's those two markets you'd want to see something like that.

    Besides, the 40 gig machine may not release until march. That's when the price drop hits... After the 60 gigs are completely sold out.

    I think they should cut the price of the PS3 around the same time Killzone 2 and MGS4 are released next year so more people can buy PS3's.
