Sony are actually making a profit now, so a price drop would make sense, they'd make more profit, because they sell more at a lower price!

That's funny, I thought it was like a $300 loss per console sold

its almost even from what i've read (OPM UK) may only be on UK console though. it was never $300, it was $150 max, otherwise they would be bust by now.

see that's funny to me, because I would say "look, as long as the demand matches supply (and it almost definitely will, judging by the sell-outs all over during launch weeks), it'd be better to have the higher cost" - at least it'll be better for the consumer

I'll bet you on that one. There's no way I could walk into a store and find a ps3 on christmas eve.

Actually is more around 300 , I read somewhere they'd begin making money on each sold in the fall ,that would be the perfect time drop it 100 again to drive sales with all the great game coming out at that time and to help christmas sales even more.

well, with the profit they make on all there other profits, the PS3 probably just cost them a christmas party.
