PS3 price drops are usually announced at Gamescom- a trade show similar to E3. Gamescom starts mid August; chances of a price drop announcement are pretty good, I'd say. If not there are always good deals during Black Friday.

They usually happen at the end of the year, if they happen at all.

The PS3 has had the most price drops of any other console this gen, and considering you get a HIGH QUALITY Blu-Ray player, an amazing game library on PSN and Retail, upscaling DVD player, a PSOne BC player...it's already a hell of a value.

^^^^Blu ray players are down to $60 in stores. Can be found cheaper online. Yes, it adds value to the PS3 but not as anywhere near it did in 2006.

If not gamescom then it could be a while, probably after the ps4 release. The expensive components I'm the Ps3 makes it hard for a price cut. However I still am waiting for one to pick a new one up.

Super slim 12g were £125 back along, but have climbed up a bit since then. I bought a 500g for £199, & I couldn't be more pleased with it. Its a proper evolution for the PS3's, its how they were supposed to be. Still haven't heard the fan on it, even in the heat wave.

How are you confused?There isn't that many comments to read through...

No one confirmed the PS3 is getting a price drop, and in fact the opposite was posted as a link was delivered to you that Sony said, "no Price drop"

Sony has no plans for PS3 price cut (One they aren't willing to share at this time at least).

You didn't "hear" anything concrete about the PS3 getting a price reduction.

You are welcome for my posts.

Bye.

I am sure the price will drop before November just in time for Christmas.

Why drop the cash? Just save up for a PlayStation 4 man
