Sony Rejects PS3 Price Cuts 187

Posted by Zonk
from the i-cast-thee-out dept.
Despite hopeful comments by analysts, Sony has gone on the record (again) saying that it has no plans to cut the PS3's pricetag any time soon. Next Generation reports: "'PS3 prices and shipment plans for the future should be determined by market trends and competition. Sony currently doesn't have any specific plan to cut the PlayStation 3's price.' Analysts believe a price cut is inevitable, as the company struggles to catch Microsoft's early lead with Xbox 360, and the $250 Wii continues to sell as many as can be produced. However, Sony's plan has generally been to hold tight and hope that demand for Blu-ray drives will increase, by the end of this year." Relatedly, the company has outlined releases for the second quarter of this year on the PS2, PS3, and PSP systems.

      They keep playing the old its my toy and if you don't want to play by my rules you can't play with it... But they don't seem to notice that not many people are willing to play with their toy based on their rules. This includes both game makers as well as customers. Over all I keep hoping that they will see the light and the ps3 will take off with both good games and good price... but untill then I will just keep what I have.

        I think the problem is that most people who would buy a ps3, are waiting for a price drop, which forces Sony to *continually* go out and say that there will be none. Otherwise I don't know why they keep saying this over and over, once would be enough.

        Which would prove that the current price is way too much (Most people always thought that, I know, but still some fanboys kept saying things like "if you want the best you have to pay the price" and that sort of shit).

      I agree with this 100%!

      I was/am a big Sony fan-boy because of the library of games the Playstation has always sported... I'm an RPG addict, and the Playstation enabled my addiction to no end. But after the wonderful Sony root-kit adventure and the current $600 price tag, I don't think I'll be buying a PS3 any time soon. Let's not forget to mention that Next-Gen game prices have all gone up another $10. All in all they basically priced me out of the market and I am refusing to save up for one.

      The only Next-Gen system I own right now is the Nintendo Wii. Why? The controls are incredibly innovative (much like the DS, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with it). The price tag was ONLY $250 and current games are still set at the $44.99-49.99 price... Oh yeah, and let's not forget Zelda and the Twilight Princess... All in all this spells one happy Wii gamer who will be waiting until those PS3 systems drop in price, and up-coming RPG releases become Best Seller titles and the prices drop to $19.99 - 29.99

    cutting the price at this point wouldn't help game sales enough to offset the extra loss they'd be taking on each unit, because the library is still pretty sparse. might as well suck it up and sell whatever units are selling. when the really good games start coming out later this summer and fall, sales will pick up and I wouldn't be surprised to see a november cut of about $100

      Take a look at Nintendo (who everyone seems enamored with at the moment), and remember what happened when they had the last round of price cuts on their handheld ... and denied any price cuts were about to happen when asked about the week before?

        Exclusive material that people are very excited for, most if not all of which is expected this year:

        Motorstorm (already out)
        Metal Gear Solid 4
        Killzone
        Heavenly Sword
        FF13 (despite recent headlines, 13 and 13vs are still PS3 exclusive for now)
        Lair
        Afrika
        LittleBigPlanet
        Home

        And others coming down the line, like the next Gran Turismo and Tekken games

        And there's games such as GTA4, Assassin's Creed, Katamari 3. People talk about a lack of exclusivity as if it's no longer available on the first platform. That's just stupid. The fact that a game is going to be available elsewhere doesn't mean it's not going to sell tremendously well on the PS3, and many people will buy one just to play their favorite franchise because it's what they're familiar with. Not to mention that it IS a better machine, and there's a good chance that multiplatform games will look nicer on the PS3. This has happened already with Oblivion.

      I think Sony is holding off on any price move until Microsoft looks like it's doing something similar. Instead the most recent move from Microsoft is releasing an even more expensive version of the 360, so that the gap to get a console and a Blu-Ray player at the same tim

        Amazon may not be where most people buy gaming consoles.
        • Yes but that is written from older data, before the end of March. The April sales figures should be more illuminating.

          The Wii is beating both handily, to the extent they can provide stock... I'm a little surprised Nintento has had such a long term problem with supply, but I think they just did not realize how popular it would be.

      Hey, why wait for a Sony price cut? EBgames/Gamestop is offering a $100 PS3 for the trade-in of a PS2 (an extra controller and a 8MB card). Probably because GS makes a killing on used systems/games and the PS2 is out selling the PS3. Though, even with a $100 trade-in credit, I still wouldn't buy a PS3 for $500. Sure, it's not a price cut, but the PS3 does have some backwards compatibility with PS2, so it might be the kicker for some.

    It's a known fact that consoles don't bring in revenue, it's in-house games and accessories and licensing fees.

      Consoles don't usually bring in revenue, no, but the PS3 is estimated to cost $800 per unit to get out the door but it's selling for $600. (The $500 model is discontinued.) Typically, the cost per unit is considered proprietary information so it's only an estimate. This means it's hard to pin down but I do believe this is the highest net loss per unit of any console ever. If they already have to sell a bunch of games and accessories (X) to break even, if they drop the price by another $100 they'll just have to have an average of each user now buy (X * 1.5) games and accessories.

      They're bleeding on PS3 right now, so should they bleed more? I guess someone crunched some numbers and came to the same conclusion you did.

      Putting on my tinfoil hat, I'd say these rumors of price drops that simply will NOT die are a combination of 1 part wishful thinking, 1 part wanting to make existing owners panic, and 1 part of helping to stifle sales as consumers who are on the fence about pricing would most certainly not want to buy if they anticipate a drop.

          If not customers, it'll be retailers and distributors that eat that $600. Sony still gets to claim it since they shipped. (Middle men are making some money on them but it isn't much.)

            If I recall, after a point retailers are able to force-sell excessive stock back to the manufacturer at discounted cost. I remember Nintendo tried to not do that and got bit sometime in the 80s.

            So even if they are shipped, that doesn't mean Sony is completely in the clear.

    They claim that "PS3 prices and shipment plans for the future should be determined by market trends and competition." There is no competition for who can sell the PS3, so they can arbitrarily price it wherever they want. This is a simple supply-demand curve, and they have put the price level where supply far exceeds demand, and anyone who has been to a Gamestop, Target, etc. can tell you this.

    You don't tell the public that a poorly selling, expensive product is going to be $100 cheaper next month unless you want even lower sales for the next month. Lower sales for that month means even lower numbers of customers looking to buy software for the machine.

    The announcement of the PS3 price cut will come the same day as the PS3 price cut (see PSP price cut as an example).

      Generally you have the right idea but PS3 sales are actually not all that bad - it's currently at a higher sales rank [eproductwars.com] than the 360 on Amazon, and has been since March 23rd when Amazon finally was able to keep stock around.

      I think you are right about the day of announcement of the PS3 price cut, but would further predict that it will come the day after the day Microsoft announces a 360 price cut, which will of course be same day Microsoft also cuts prices. Sony and Microsoft are waiting til one does a cut before the other one, and both are enjoying higher profits (and unknoably lower sales) as a result.
      • Sales rank is meaningless because Amazon.com sells far too few consoles to be considered a large sample; after watchin Amazon sales/sales rank for several weeks I noticed that (about) 20 sales in a day will put you close to #1 in the games section. NPD on the other hand is far more accurate and has sales for the month of March at:

    I've gone for the full 1080p setup over the last few months, which includes a PS3. Last weekend we had a few people round and spent a bit of time playing Gran Turismo HD and Motorstorm. Two of the guys have 360s and were pretty impressed by the jump in graphics quality. GT plays properly in 1080p, and although Motorstorm only runs at 720p, it is really breathtaking. I can't fairly comment on Xbox360 quality because I've never seen one hooked up properly - the PS3 looks rubbish connected through SCART or component at 576i resolution, and for Xbox360 that's the only setup I've seen. So my unfair comment is that really the Xbox360 is half a generation behind Sony/Nintendo. Other consoles that have tried the same thing have started well and kind of fizzled out once the competition got going.

    I know a few people thinking about getting a PS3, and it's not really the price issue that's holding them back but the content. Gran Turismo and Grand Theft Auto are two of the big games people are waiting for. Also a lot of places are still price gouging - the games seem to be £35 online but £50 on the high street. Some decently priced Blu-Ray movies would also be good. I found Tesco are selling them for £13 now, but most retailers are still around the £25 mark. Unfortunately I can't find Casino Royale or Planet Earth in stock anywhere :(

Can't speak to the 1080p though, so thats definitely an opportunity for Sony to excel if the 360 doesn't start putting its own 1080p games out.

      On the other hand again its ridiculous to say that the graphical output of a 360 in HD is a half-generati

        Yeah the Wii isn't half a generation ahead of the 360 graphically. But it does have controllers a generation ahead. That's part of the problem launching first. Sony got to see what people thought of the 360, and also hear what Nintendo was doing, and try for the best of both.

        The tilt sensors in the PS3 controller are a nice touch and I'd like to see some games make better use of it. Tony Hawks uses the tilt sensors for balancing on grinds / manuals. It feels like a really natural way to do it and for m

      Gears of War @ 1080i looks pretty darn amazing, even though it's component video. Comparing a high def signal to a non high def signal is silly, a lesson I recently learned. I sold my HDTV and had ordered another. Before the new TV arrived, I was playing on a standard old 4x3 tube. Gears of War looked so much worse on that TV :( (not bad per say, but not nearly as nice as 1080i).

      I know a few people thinking about getting a PS3, and it's not really the price issue that's holding them back but the content.

      If $600 is no big deal for you when buying a game console, and you read Slashdot, I'm guessing you are a well-payed techie with lots of free spending money, and your friends are too. Sony needs people outside of this niche. I've read lots of forum posts from people who want to buy a PS3 but are waiting for more games and a price drop. I'm thinking they could sell a lot more at $400, but I don't think they can afford to sell them at this price, even 6 months from now.

      Better luck next round, Sony.

  • Didn't RTFA but that quote doesn't actually feature a denial from Sony, just that they haven't made any noises about a price cut publically.

    In the UK prices dropped £25 ($50) as a special offer for the Easter holidays. However despite these holidays ending the price remains reduced as stores are trying to clear stockrooms filled with PS3 units. Consoles have very tight margins compared to games but take up huge amounts of space. Stores can't sell the consoles at the current price, the longer they ha

  • Guess they know that, without price cuts, they will be at best 3rd place.

    Which is kind of a shame, in that they have the better internal machine, even if they have very very few fun games that are designed for it.

    I'll just be having fun downloading the final version of Opera for free to use on my Wii, and playing Super Mario Paper Cut ...

    Sony needs to take their current marketing plan to the next level - "This is the incredible new Sony PS/3 - and YOU CAN'T BUY ONE!!!"

      My bad - Sony isn't using the Cartmanland Strategy, Nintendo is. And it's working!
  • Ok so let's assume the article is true, then sony's being stupid, games arn't going to sell 600 dollars, yadda yadda. It's exactly what you think now.

    However how could it be untrue? Well Sony could be thinking about a price drop (If they have a brain in their head they are considering it, hell all companies are considering when not if they will cut prices). However any producer of goods knows this fact, NEVER let them know their's a price drop coming. Why would I buy a 360 today for 400 dollars when I c
