On my recent travels overseas, I was tempted to heade to comments and purchase a PS3, since it's much cheaper than here in Australia. Denying my spontaneous instincts, and upon my return, very early research has surfaced news regarding new manufacturing techniques that will improve reliability and, most importantly, offer the opportunity for a price drop! Although, with recent news of the demise of HD-DVD competition for blue-ray, there doesn't seem much need for $ony to pass any savings on to consumers in the short term, perhaps rather make up for their investment.
We all know that the trend in the long-term will lead to a drop in price, but I'm curious as to whether we may see such "rumors" come true by the end of the year? Comments?
