Sony's CEO smashes hopes that Sony would lower the price of the Sony PS3 console in time for the Holidays. Kazuo Hirai told the Financial Times that the current PS3 pricing is the one that Sony will go into the Holiday shopping season.
Sony is arguing that the Sony PS3 is a better value than rivals half its price.
We already reported last week that besides consumers also industry analysts would like to see a price drop amidst the much lower pricing of the Xbox 360 and the economic uncertainties.
I agree that there is a lot of value inside a PS3. You get a Blu-ray player and hard drive along with great media features and video games. In the end it is more a question of if the Xbox 360 or the Wii deliver equal fun for much less money if you just look at game play.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
