- Rumor has it the PS3 is set for a price drop on March 22nd, at least according to an EB employee who reportedly let this one slip.
To quote: Last night one of community members was in an EB Games store and an employee mentioned a PS3 price drop occurring Sunday March 22nd just in advance of the Game Developer's Conference (GDC).
He went on to say that Sony will be issuing a press release on the Saturday before the drop and that EB was already prepared for the upcoming price-drop.
The current "rumor" is that the PlayStation 3 80GB console will retail for USD $300. That would be a $99 price reduction in the console, bringing it closer to reach for many gamers. However, be prepared for Sony to refuse to comment or straight out say this is untrue, it wouldn't be the first time they've pulled that stunt.
It's in Sony's best interest to hide the price drop from gamers because we'll halt purchasing of the PS3 until The Price drop occurs.
