This could be good for the ps3...even though i already have one and it would kind of suck to see it drop in price from a personal standpoint it would be great for the system and the sales would jump.

If they reduce the price and more people buy the system you will end up benefitting from it. More games will come to the system and more gamers will have the system for the online games and Home to make them better.

 yeah, definitely but im just saying maybe for the first 24 hours i would say damn it already dropped and i spent $600.

also if somebody is on the fence of buying a ps3, they are now going to wait im sure so ps3 sales should be low until a drop

thats great that they are considering a price reduction.  At the very least they aren't ruling it out.

There is no question in my mind that a price reduction is needed to help Sony move more units but the bigger question is would a 100 dallor reduction be enough to move that many more  ?  I think that it would move some but I am afraid that 500 dallors will still be too expensive for most.  I think the PS3 is a fantastic piece of electronics that may have been just a bit ahead of its time.  When hi-def TV's are more the norm the PS3 will be cheaper and it will sell like crazy.  The only problem is that may be a year or two away proving that the PS3 is indeed future proof.  Its just got to make it through the next year or so and I think it will really take off.  I am getting ready to buy one myself with a price cut or not.  It took me longer to save to get one but I'm almost there.
