No PS3 Price Cut, Sony Says

Following rumors of a looming Xbox 360 price drop, Sony says those hoping for a PlayStation 3 drop at next week's Games Convention in Germany "will be disappointed."
"It's not going to happen," a SCEA spokesman told Reuters on Friday. "If you're coming for that you'll be disappointed."
Earlier this month, a proven confidant said Microsoft would drop the price of the Xbox 360 in September, from US$279 to $199 for the Arcade model, and $349 to $299 for the Pro model with hard drive. Microsoft has declined comment on the rumor.
Both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 saw their first price drops in late 2007. As consumers continue to gobble up the industry-leading Wii for $250 a pop (or more if resold), many gamers wonder when Sony and Microsoft will respond with a more enticing mainstream price.
The Leipzig Games Convention runs from August 20-22. Reference : http://www.pcworld.com/article/149898/2008/08/.html?tk=rss_news

It's unfortunate news for those who still don't have the system, but I don't think it's very surprising news. The PS3 is selling well right now and with a bunch of good upcoming games coming out soon they wouldn't really need to have a price drop to have their system sell well.

If you are looking to get a PS3 though, you should check out this Stacker 2 contest going on where you could win a PS3 or 360 (your choice), a copy of Rise of the Argonauts, a year's supply of 6 Hour Power energy shots, and more. There are less than 170 entrants as of now. To have a chance at winning just design a 6 Hour Power t-shirt. Check out the full contest details here: http://www.brickfish.com/Entertainment/Stacker2?tab=overview

Let me know if you have any questions or if you enter. I'd be happy to vote for your designs. Good luck.
