  • New Rumour:PS3,$389.99 Price tag (CDN)

    According to an EB Games empolyee, the PS3 will sell for $389.99PS3 Will Put Sony in the Hole for Years

    Earlier today we received an email from a reader who took some time to head over to his local EB Games Store in Toronto where he had the opportunity to chat with the store manager about the PS3. Strangely enough, the EB manager seemed to know a fair bit about the PS3 launch and reluctantly let a few things slip.

    When asked when someone can pre-order the PS3, the EB employee replied that EB Games stores in Canada will not even consider taking pre-orders until the E3 is out of the way. Adding that pre-orders could start in June.

    He also slipped in a couple of dates. One being November 11th as the PS3 launch date, and November 22nd as a possible Nintendo Revolution Launch date

    Perhaps most interestingly, the store manager revealed that they already have a SKU for the new console. When asked what price tag will be attached to the SKU, he replied $389.99(CDN). Considering the costs of manufacturing the PS3 are enormous, a price tag under $400 seems rather surprising. According to the Eb Games store manager, “each PS3 sale is being subsidized by the big Blu-ray backers including the big movie studios, so at the end of day Sony can undercut Microsoft and not lose massive of amounts of money per unit.”

    Of course we can’t verify if any of this information is true, but if it is, a $-400 price tag would be great. However with the GDC now all but over the next time we hear anything official from Sony likely wont be until the E3 in May.

    Even i dont think it would sell for this,but this shows Sony can undercut more than any other.I think 450$ is reasonable.You ready for Next Gen?

    That's too low. I wouldn't trust an article based on the word's of a story employee anyway. I think the PS3 will come out for a maximum of $499 and a minimum of around $450, but certainly not as cheap as the article states. Even though a $499 price tag would be a huge blow to Sony, I just can't see them going above that.

    Again, not that I believe what this guy say's, but just for speculation purposes one line did catch my attention, i.e., the launch date's of the PS3 and the NR. We all know that the NR will be cheap. If true, it will be interesting to see how a reasonably cheap console does pitted next to a console which look's to be pretty expensive. We all know that everyone expect the PS3 to blow away the NR in term's of sales, so it'll be really interesting to see what happens.

      Interesting.The dates are WAY too close.Something is going to give.I think the 360 will be the biggest loser out of this battle though for that particular period at thanks giving.360 should have a nice base installed by then though.

          Someone told me a guy in a conference said it would be no less than $425 (American), which sounds a little more believable.
