Following up on the report that the PLAYSTATION 3 would see a $100 price cut taking place the week after E3 2007, GameDaily has confirmed with "a merchandising manager at one of the world's biggest retailers" that the 60 GB version of the PS3 will indeed drop to $499, starting on July 12, one day after Sony's E3 press conference. GameDaily also reports that the new price is indeed indicative a retail-wide price drop, not a Circuit City specific sale, as a handful of speculators have posited.

Well with this new price cut I just might pick one up. I was going to buy a xbox 360, but with the high failure rates and all I decided not to, even with Microsofts extented warranty, I don't trust them. I mean they should have put the heatsinks in the systems to prevent the consoles from overheating in the first place, before shipping to the mass market. no.gif And we know the ps3 has had a bad rep since the begining.

Both Sony and Microsoft are evil, but I'm probably still gonna end up buying one of their systems to play the games. They need to get their act together, and stop screwing people around. thumbdown.gif

I feel like I'm in your position jon. I have been looking at either a PS3 or Xbox360, but the failure rates concern me. I'll probably wait a couple months before I pick up either of them though. See how things go over the rest of the summer.

At the moment I'm leaning towards a PS3, but even with the $100 price cut $400 isn't easy money for me.

This also helps me lean towards a PS3. http://www.bluraysavings.com/

If you buy any Blu-ray player through September (including a PS3) you can recieve 5 free blu-ray movies.

I was planning to buy a 360 but the failure rate concern's me too. I'm not sure i'd buy a ps3 because the games don't really appeal to me. The 360 has got alot of cool games but i want a very relyable(sp?) product for my money so i'm going to wait for now or just buy or upgrade the pc.

Yeah but i hate sports games. tongue.gif So the lineup does bother me. I want cool franchises, cool race games and shooters and maybe rpg's. That's what i look for in a game console. I don't look at graphics and all that (well abit but not the main thing) i look at the games that are available for that console.

Well the failure rate of the 360 is pretty much solved by now. Microsoft now gives 3 years warranty for every 360 in case of the 3 red lights error. Plus, if your console happens to fail they'll put in a heatpipe GPU heatsink which solves the problem(will go into detail if anyone's interrested)

I would say Too little too late, although i love my 360, many users already lost their faith in it and it has made itself a bad name.

Hmmmm, interesting. 3 year warranty is alot on a game console IMO. That's good service (a first for Microsoft). This kinda makes my day. It's good to hear Microsoft actually providing a proper service.

WHAT?! There's now three years warranty on all consoles?? Even new ones in the shop? Because I've just spotted a 360 Premium for E379 at MediaMarkt (which saves me E20 - it's like a free VGA cable!).And I've got the money, too. The advent of the 360 could be days away for me tongue.gif

Yeah, it's only available in the North American market for now I believe. The rest of the world will follow pretty soon. My guess is after e3.

Still more than a hundred euros more expensive. And nothing to make me (personally) want it.

Yea, at E3 it was all blah blah, but no real killer games to see. And turns out Killzone 2 is going to be just as bad as the first. Basically just another run&gun.

Yeah everyone's like "omg ps3's gonna get good games too" but so far there's about what, 20? And most of those i couldn't care less about. And i'm not biassed. The 360 had a lot more when it was this old, and they were all quality. For the PS3, there arent any major releases on the horizon for the upcoming years except for MGS(which i just can't figure out why is so popular). They should rename it to Blu-Ray+MGSPlayer Unit and bundle MGS4 with it.

First was absolute rubbish. What was so special about the latest trailer? I mean, if you've played Gears of War, it looks like just another FPS.

Well I'm talking mostly of the graphics, they look awesome.

I didn't think that killzone was that bad. By no means is it GoW, but it wasn't awful.

I guess I've never been a good critic..

Not really, there aren't any 3.5mm jacks on the 360. There is one TOSLINK port, or just use the regular white/red stereo connectors on the s-video/component or VGA cable. And if you get the Elite version (the black one), you can use the HDMI output for sound too I think?
