One of the most long-winded sagas of 2009 thus far is, reportedly, about to be resolved. For better or worse, according to exployees of a UK games retailer, Sony are planning price-drops for both the PlayStation 3 and PSP systems. Although an exact date has yet to be confirmed, the rumor is that the move will occur “soon”.
“It’s been on the cards for a while,” they said, “but manufacturers are not in the habit of giving exact dates so as not to effect sales”.
While this is great news for people hoping to pick up a PS3 or PSP on the “cheap”, it must all be taken with a huge pinch of salt. This does kind of awfully wreak of a blogger wandering into a Gamestation and asking the part-time newbie behind the counter whether it’s likely to happen.
What do we think? Should Sony stick to their guns or drop the heck out of the price?
