    Sony's lost billions on their computer entertainment division for years. They're cutting cost in an effort to get back to profitability. If they don't achieve that in the next few years, there's a very real threat of dropping out of the console market completely.
    Exactly why I don't mind them not dropping the price.

    Why should we be mad about a price change after fucking 6 years!!!!!(5,6 or 7 whatever) but i do get mad when for example I bought SSX and then next week the game was fucking 50% and i hate that when the buyers who don't support the company first day get all the awesome shit when the game comes with a complete edition, itīs like they are saying screw you first day buyers.

    Another thread made by PS360 that is taken way too seriously because PS360 looks at one little article or word and purposely takes it way out of proportion.

    Sony WASN'T saying, "Hey, we know you don't want a price drop so you can save money, so we won't give it to you."

    What they ACTUALLY were saying, or MEAN is, "Our consumers have no problem with the price point the system is at now. They want more content and value for the games they buy, and since the only way to get the value is to keep it at the same price. Keeping it at the same price point allows us to give and deliver to our consumers everything they really want. And if they really want that, we must give it to them this way, to deliver on their wants."

    Yes, Sony is going to make better this way. But we will also.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    It's a truism in life and business that the consumer will always prefer that the products/services they are purchasing be at a lower price, if not free. But let's face reality: We aren't being given a choice between a lower price point and the current price point. We're being given the choice between the current price point and not having the product at all.

    If you don't like the higher price point that Sony is putting on the new console, don't buy it. It's as simple as that. Whining that Sony's logic sucks, whining that you don't like how Sony is running their business.... that's simply whining for the sake of whining. Vote with your proverbial feet and refuse to support Sony and/or support their competitors, and maybe Sony will re-consider. But they're not about to change their ways because you're ptiching a fit.

    You know, this is what I saw the article, or rather the quote, as saying right after I read it. However, like most wealthy XOs, they don't think about the words coming out of their mouths before they say it. They are so disconnected with reality, it's crazy. Just like some politicians here in the states, they say things that gets them in trouble because they don't understand how the normal man feels, thinks, acts, lives....yadda yadda yadda. For people who are suppose to be smart, they sure sound dumb...often.

    I do agree that Sony has the right to claw back the money they lost when they first released the PS3 but you would think by the domination of Bluray they will get there money back and then some . A don't mind paying a bit more for Sony cause they have never let me down and there products are always quality
    Would like to thank Google and snipping tool for my amazing sig + avatar

    I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE LEARNED ANYTHING FROM ANY MAN WHO AGREED WITH ME

    To be conscious that you are ignorant of the facts is a great step to knowledge

    I imagine the reason they didn't drop the price on the older models is so people will buy the new slim. With the cheap plastic top and manual disc load, I'm sure its cheaper for Sony to make so they get a greater profit out of it. The increased hard drive space is also very cheap for Sony and it gives customers a bit more value.
