r u dumb? listen carefully, it is basically saying u can get this system that is fat with options and such for money, or get this cheap thing that will get u by, look past the girls dumbass


You make no sence whatsoever. He said that the emphasis wasn't on the girls. Do you know what emphasis means?



lol ya i realize that, guess i read someone elses and mixed them together or something, but w/e. and guys there is no way there will be a price dop as they are losing 200-300 dollars for each console that sells

i dont think you realize how much of a mark up they do when they frist come out so they can drop them in dollars. I mean look at the ps2 it was 300 when it frist came out and droped to 250 in like half a year or soemthing like that than a month later it was like 200 and then finnally a year or something later its at 170

you do know even if they are trying to get ride of the product the lowest they will drop it to is cost.

It's not a mark-up

When a system first comes out it cost more because it's harder to mass-produce. Sony already stated that the reason for there being a shortage is because they can't figure out how to mass-produce blue-ray diodes. Once the manufacturing plants get everything in order and figure out the cheapest way to produce the system the cheaper manufacturing cost translates into cheaper consoles.

Thats why over the years consoles cost less, it's the same thing for other technology as well. Remember how much CD players cost when they came out? What about DVD's? I remember when DVD burners cost $700 and DVD-R disks were $60 a disk.

Yes they are, so is Microsoft. Nintendo is actually making a profit on every Wii sold. But Sony and Microsoft will make the cash back as you buy games.

WRONG!!!!
Microsoft is making around $80 dollars a system old, check ur facts b spitting stuff out, and i do agree EVENTUALLY it might go down, but it will not go down drastically enough so that there is much a difference between it and the original price so it doesnt matter

well i mean i firgure once they have a stable model out the price will drop 50 bucks to remove the other models they realsed so in about 3 to 6 months it will be around 500 for the top model hopefully. Probly around right befor summer brakes for schools to try to get the parents to get them for the kids for summer. Altough they say the top model is for the ultimate gamer if you do alot of rpgs i am betting you are going need that with expasion maps and stuff they will do down the road, but who knows
