Sony Still Standing Firm on PS3 Price |

Despite numerous rumors and developer backlash, Sony’s Howard Stringer is still supporting the current price tag of the PlayStation 3, saying “I (would) lose money on every PlayStation I make“. In my opinion, lowering the price would mean more product would be moved and a higher attach rate, which is good for everyone. From IGN.

    The thing is, the PS3 is still selling reasonably well despite the price. I’d rather they kept the price as it is long enough to make a profit. That guarantees that they stick around in the games industry. Well, okay, maybe nothing guarantees that, but they’re more likely to if they’re making profit.

    If they cut the price and continue making a loss just to please developers and tightwads, there’s always the chance they may not stick around for PS4 and PSP2, and I certainly don’t want a gaming environment where all I have to choose between is Mario Kart and Halo.

    SONY really should have sold some modules as optional accessories such as wireless and HD. They are useful, but someone just don’t need them.

    They will just be losing more and more market
