Eurogamer has recently had an interview with David Reeves, and it seemed to confirm that Sony is planning on keeping the Playstation 3 as the most expensive console out of the competition. Throughout the interview, David didn’t really chose to make arrogant statements or avoid answering the questions, he was pretty honest about everything asked.
I think it will, yes. I’m not saying there are going to be any price cuts at all in the short term or the medium term. I’m not saying we don’t need to do it – we are expensive. It is possible that as the cost [of manufacturing] comes down, we will be able to do it.
He believes that if they stay strong, and stay up for another six or seven months, they’ll see a great uplift in sales. Honestly, price cut or not, I’m going to be buying a PS3 regardless, God of War 2 and Final Fantasy XIII is too much to pass up. But for you kids, or for those of you who just don’t wanna dish out all that money for a Ps3, I hope for the best, heh. It seems as if Sony isn’t going to leave from their defensive position, and they are going to hold strong and continue to keep their prices the way they are.
