    You pay a premium for any new technology at its first launch as we all know so we knew the price would drop when is any body’s’ guess so if you cant wait that’s the price you pay that’s why I haven’t brought one yet for my son come Christmas I wouldn’t be surprised if the price doesn’t come down again its like the price for blue ray give it time the price will drop

    All PS3 owners should be happy about it, selling more consoles means more games for the system and a longer product lifecycle.

    +1.....Why buy any console then? What are you gonna do? Wait until it goes out of production in 8 years or whatever to then get a system for $50? I bought a 20gb and it does not bother me in the slightest, especially since I am definitely going to keep it because they don't make them anymore.

    Isn't the price cut temporarily until September or something? Or is it the free 5 Blu-Ray movie deal that ends September?

    I would say that anyone who bought the system 30 days (past price match period for many large retailers) before the price drop would be the most annoyed, or anyone who bought from a retailer without the price match just before the price drop. That said, if you've had the system for longer, you can imagine the difference in price as the cost for the ability to enjoy the system for X days or months ahead of those that pay less.

    So if you bought at launch, be happy :)

    The problem is the big boys i.e. Sony, Microsoft have got us by the balls well a small minority of the consumer market they have they know some people have to have it now usually the teenage clan who haven’t a mortgage to worry about and got more money then sense that’s why they charge you over the odds on launch day in the uk the playstation was £425 now its £375 that’s only a couple of months since its launch day when it hits £300 ill go and buy one there’s more to live then a games console i.e. the mortgage if they can sell it now £50 less why didn’t they do that when it was released don’t get me wrong it looks a good peace of kit but come on £425 for a game console until the consumer stands up and is counted they will take us for twats .

    I'm not, nor should any one here be.

    If you bought it at launch, it's because you really wanted it right then and there.

    And if you didn't expect a price drop, you must've been living under a rock for the past 20 years.

    Therefore, no, definitely not pissed. I've been happy with the PS3 since the day I got it (I've been especially happy since I upgraded to HD lol).

    Not really, i brought a PS2 when they were $1000 too and still have it :eek:D If you look at how much it would have cost to rent the PS3 untill the price drop it would be well over $100 so i got all that good gaming time in, not that there was much to play apart from resistance and Motorstorm!

    im really pissed that 5 blue ray movies are only for ps3's bought between july 07 and september 07! I feel really ripped off... I feel like sueing or something lol. Well, I wouldn't go that far, but I feel like sony owes the people who bought ps3's at launch. We beleived in them and this is how they treat us!

    this owner is mad.I'm mad but guess what the price was going to drop it was inevitable thus i don't care plus got to play my PS3 for about just over 8 months and value only has gone $100. Most things you buy 8 months ago is worth alot less then it did when it first came out

    I think its great because since I've gotten the ps3 I've been scarred that it was dead in the water and that sooner or latter they would scrap the dang thing. Hopefully ps3 will make it big and reach a larger audience. Shoot I wouldn't be mad if it went to 300{us]

    I was thinking about getting pissed when I first heard it, but then I realized fudge it I love my PS3 and if I was gonna get pissed over a measly 100 bucks what kinda Playstation fan would I be.
