Does anyone have any info on the PS3 price drop? As far as I understand it they are trying to get rid of their 60GB stock and after their gone they wont be avalible in the U.S. I believe the deal is $100 off the 60GB and the 80GB is the same price with a free game but the deal is only through July. If I'm incorrect or someone has more info please tell me.

Thanks

I did a little research: The 60GB PS3 was orinally priced at $600 but Sony is replcing it with an 80GB system at the same price so to get rid of their 60GB systems the are now priced at $500 until the end of July or when they sell out which ever comes first

They should just sell it for 200 dollars. They would sell faster in my opinion.

Definitely, I would buy one at 200, and so would many people.

only thing is, I have heard it's a copy cat of PS2.

I had actually heard the same thing. My roommate was going to sell me his 360 because he was gonna get a PS3 and figure the 360 would still be around for the 8 or 9 months we are in school.

He talked to some guys at the store, though, and they said the 360 was the better investment in the long run.

I want to a PS3, but won't buy it cause I'm only interested in two games. Same with the 360. Why can't they just release all games on the Wii

Yeah the only games I like for 360 are Gears of War and the Halo games. I just dont like the Madden controls for 360. Maybe I'm just bullheaded from playing Madden on the PS2 for all these years.

Yep, Halo and Gears of War are the ones I like too. As for Madden I'll continue to buy it for the gamecube until they discontinue it

HYave you played it for Wii. I heard its like playing football because you have to make the arm motion when throwing and everything. Seems like too much work for me.

The only problem with the PS3 is that the software lineup is a joke. Sony is losing exclusive titles faster than the Bengals are losing games, all titles released for both systems sell cheaper for the Xbox and run at twice the frame rate. PSN (playstation online) has advertisements everywhere, lags and has only 27% as many players as are on Xbox live daily… Both Gears of War and Halo 3 outsold the PS3 console itself...

If you want a decent blu-ray player with okay game titles go for it… Most blu-ray players run close to $1000 alone so it’s a good deal for that… But I would rather have the exclusives such as Halo and Gears of War with a Madden that runs double the PS3’s frame rate - Final Fantasy, Katamari, Guitar Hero and possibly Metal Gear already having deals with Xbox AND the HD DVD capacity all for a smaller price than what Sony is asking…

If Sales keep going the way they are with Nintendo in first, Microsoft at strike-able second and playstation getting destroyed by both of them… There will be another PS3 price drop by this Christmas… Sony can’t afford not to drop it.

Almost all the exclusive deals that Sony had inked are falling apart now, too. You will probably see 95% of the former PS games also launched on the 360, and I'm not talking about ports after the fact, but real same day launches.

I don't know there are still some impressive exclusives for PS3. It really depends on your gaming tastes. There's MGS, Ratchet and Clank, Final Fantasy, and also a lot of games developed by sony like god of war. ALso, one of the major reasons the 360 has sold so much more is that it has been out a year longer.. There is more momentum, but the ps3 sold about the same in its first few months as the 360 did in its first few.
