Default More $299 PS3 rumblings

http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/01/22/...h-white-model/

after being on the smackdown forums reading about the $299 PS3, i found this interesting article. the link in the other forum (forgive me for being lazy) listed the ceramic white PS3 as one of the cheap options. could it be happening?

not likely, they(meaning sony) don't really have to worry about competing with HD DVD and this year will be a killer year for the Playstation side of things(the gaming aspect). There's lots to look forward to and people will start buying more PS3s to play these games. Metal Gear Solid, Little Big Planet, Final fantasy XIII to name a few. I know one guy who will buy a PS3 just to play the Gran Turismo 5 Prolog that is set to release here in NorthAmerica in the next few months.

I fully expect the white to be $399 like the black one. I think Sony does need to drop the price soon. The 360 has a pretty big lead, and it will take some serious sales to catch up. A $299 or even a $349 would be huge to boost sales even more.

I kinda hope this is true. $299 will probably do it for me to get one.

There was a Best Buy location that has sold some 40GB PS3s for $299 at "manager's special" or some nonsense.

Could be a lie though here's the link

in any case Sony hasn't officially announced the white version (I like black anyway) and there is no official word on price drops.


I wonder if the 20% off all Blu-Ray players coupon will apply to the PS3. It doesn't exclude it specifically on the back.

I really hope they drop the price to $300!

I would never buy a PS3, but that should force all the other companies to lower the prices of the blu-ray players!!!

then why do you care if the price drops? It is, after all a gaming system AND a Blu-Ray player. So price should not necessarily drop just to force blu-ray player prices down.
