...............by this christmas!!!! How do i know this? Well i bet a number of people clicked on this thread because that is what they are holding out for. Lets admit it.... sales although good are starting to drop behind the Wii .... and money from software sales will seriously be affected. Sony will need to reduce the price to get more of these machines into peoples homes asap. Dont get me wrong... the PS3 will be a hugely successful machine in 2 to 3 years time but the problem is that currently it is out of the price range of the majority of its buyers. I read that the Wii outsold the PS3 in Japan 7 to 1 last week!!!!! That is scary and Sony must do something to reverse this trend. If the equivalent price in Japan for a PS3 is circa £290, I see no reason why they could not introduce that price in the UK by winter. Looks like we'll just have to wait and see but at the moment i'm holding out!!! I wonder how many here will do the same?
