Boston (dbTechno) - According to reports it seems that Sony is not very far away from dropping the price of the PS3 once again as many news sources are stating that it may not be very long before we see a $299 PS3 console.
The price drop which would bring the price of the PS3 down to $299 is expected to take place on January 28th, which would actually be just next Tuesday.
The news comes from postings at SlickDeals.net who specializes in posting latest price changes for hot electronic products.
They stated that a $299 price point for the PS3 is likely to take place on January 28th.
This place, SlickDeals, has been a reliable source for news lately as they posted news about the past two PS3 price drops as well as the Xbox 360 price drop just about before anyone else did.
This announcement comes as the Blu-ray format continues to pick up steam against the HD DVD format, and the PS3 also continues to pick up momentum.
It was just last week that it was revealed that costs to produce the PS3 are way down, so it would seem that this would be the perfect time for Sony to keep the momentum
http://www.dbtechno.com/gaming/2008/...way-again-299/

Potentially a big blow to the war. Sony could really move some systems with that price. They're producing PS3s for right around $400 right now. Wouldn't be any big loss to the company.

$250 for a Wii, or $300 for a PS3? Hmm...

Yes! $100 less I have to save.

Is it going to be the 40 GB that drops?

No, 1TB models will be $300.



Yeah, they seem to like $100 price drops on everything.

I paid $746.98 for mine

I picked mine up less than 60days ago. They better pull an APPLE and refund something. That's messed up to price drop 2x within 6 months.

the latest hardware sales data from market research firm NPD Group is in, and it reveals that - as one would expect - HD-DVD player sales have also been impacted by the news of Warner's decision to drop the format later this year. One quick note: The data that follows does NOT include sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 or the HD-DVD add-on drive for Microsoft's Xbox 360. These are stand-alone, set-top players only.

As you can see, Blu-ray Disc players outsold HD-DVD players in the month of December here in the States by about a 60/40 margin, and that split has grown to 70/30 in favor of Blu-ray in the first half of January. This despite the fact that HD-DVD players were (on average) some $200 cheaper than Blu-ray players throughout the holiday shopping season.

But the most striking revelation in the data is the change in the hardware sales ratios between the first and second weeks of January (ending 1/5 and 1/12), reflecting the impact of Warner's announcement (and the mainstream media reaction). The graphs below show player sales for each format both before and after Warner's 1/4 press release..
