PlayStation 3 PS3 Price to Drop By $100 This Summer

PlayStation 3 Price to Drop by $100 This Summer

I know many people have been eying the PS3 since its launch but haven't gone for it, because for all its greatness — it's a Blu-ray player, a gaming console, a media center (and hopefully will come with Netflix support soon) — it carries a hefty price tag (the 160 GB version goes for $500, and the 80 goes for $400).

But that could all change this Summer when a long-awaited price cut will slash $100 off the system, if industry insiders are correct.

Sources say the cut will come mid-August timed with the release of Madden, and I don't think it could come at a better time. Interest is up since Sony's many E3 announcements, plus the obvious statement: it's about time!

Will you buy a PS3 if the price drops by 100 bucks?

i think for the blu-ray player alone its worth the investment, i would use it as a computer rather than just gaming.

If I have the extra money around I may get one. I'm happy with my xbox 360.

No, I most likely won't buy it. None of my friends have it, and I'm not particularly into any of the games on it.

Already have one. It's a great console. I hope people take the opportunity to buy one when the price drops.

My husband wants one of these sooo bad and i always feel bad because we really can't afford it. If they do drop the price I may actually be able to squeeze it into our budget by his birthday YAY!!!

I was an Xbox 360 and Wii girl for a long time. Then somehow the hubs talked me into the PS3 as a bluetooth player. Within three weeks we bought a second one so we could do online co-op gaming. I love my PS3. With the price drop I would definitely recommend this nice little multitasker to anyone. Little Big Planet alone makes this a great console.
