    "In the past, such moves have sparked tit-for-tat price wars. In 2004, Microsoft dropped the cost of the original Xbox to $149, only to see Sony do the same to the PlayStation 2 weeks later. Last summer, Sony discontinued the 60GB PS3 by pricing it to sell at $499--a move that was quickly followed by Microsoft discounting its Xbox 360 models to $279 (HDD-less Arcade), $349 (20GB Pro), and $449 (120GB Elite)."

    I didn't expect one tbh. $400 is already a steal for everything you get.

    Sony pulled a dirty card out of their sleeve on that so-called 60GB price drop. It turned out to be a fire sale for the model being discontinued.

    Last July Sony said they had no plans for price drop. And a couple days later at E3, they officially announced the price drop.
    I've been following the rumours then and had placed and cancelled order of PS3 a few times =P

    I eventually got one just after the price drop.

    Sony can't afford to lose anymore money on the PS3. I personally doubt they will announce any kind of price drop any time soon.

    Didn't expect one really. If they don't it could be a good for Microsoft to announce a price drop.
