[citation][nom]cerillian[/nom]Personally I would rather have the console price stay the same and see the games become a few bucks cheaper. For me that would be a much stronger intensive to buy a PS3.[/citation]Yes, drop game prices to $5-10 cheaper than the X360 counter parts and also drop BR movie prices too.
For real. I don't care how much they claim improvements have been made on he price of consoles. $50 for a game is ridiculously overpriced. It's like going to radioshack and buying 2 AA batteries for $6, when they cost pennies on the dollar to make. Whatever happened to making good games that people actually want to buy to drive up your profit instead of shady ways of bleeding dry an already bleeding industry?
Man, I don't know where half of the users who comment get their information but Jesus H Christ... Sony is NOT going to drop the prices on the CONSOLE anytime soon. They were LOSING money when they first started selling the damn thing in the first place! This whole entire time they have been losing money and now that some information has been made public about the cost to manufacture, everyone is up in arms. The unit has, say it with me, "PROPRIETARY HARDWARE" in it. THAT is what COSTS so much to produce. The damn thing is one of a kind. Sony, do what you gotta do. )
Also, Why lower the price of games? We want the best incentive for developers and publishers to make games. If they cut the price, that means less revenue for the developers, so they cope by making less quality games by cutting their staff or reducing project time. Not good for the consumer in the long run.
Cut the price of the console. Games are where the money is made for Sony too. Razor and Razor blade model.
