Ubisoft: 'PS3 price must drop in 2007'

Ubisot president Yves Guillemot warned that while his company is optimistic about the sales of the next-gen consoles, Sony must be prepared to drop the price of its PS3 in 2007 to compete effectively with the Xbox 360.
Speaking to business news agency Bloomberg, Guillemot expressed the view that while the PS3 will see enormous demand from early adopters this year, the price point could be a major stumbling block in the following months.

Ubisoft has committed heavily to the next generation with updates to existing franchises, as well as new titles such as Assassin's Creed and Wii exclusive Red Steel, and its recently revealed forecasts for the coming years are very positive for the next-gen systems. The French firm expects 40 million consoles to be sold in the US alone in 2008.
