Sony: No PS3 price cut for Christmas

Posted on Saturday, November 01 2008 @ 00:26:20 CET by


VideoGamer reports Sony isn't planning to cut the price of the PlayStation 3 console in time for Christmas, claiming the perceived high price won't be an issue:
Speaking to VideoGamer.com at the Games 3.0 conference in London yesterday, Sony Computer Entertainment managing director Ray Maguire said that while there will always be pressure on price from consumers, Sony "has a business to run" and has to "do the right thing" for its shareholders.

Microsoft has enjoyed a 360 sales surge in the UK following the price cut in September, which saw the Arcade cut to £129.99, the 60GB cut to £169.99 and the Elite down to £229.99.

When asked if Sony was feeling any pressure to cut the price of the PS3 in time for Christmas, Maguire replied: "Well the pressure comes from the consumers obviously and so therefore there's always pressure on price, but you know we have a business to run, and we have to make sure we're doing the right thing for the shareholders as well.

"At the moment there's a marketplace for PS3 and I think for this particular Christmas, with the kind of quality of games we're seeing coming out this Christmas, I don't think the price of the console is going to be an issue at all."
Earlier this week, Sony announced its profit fell by 72 percent.
