    Analysts are already predicting that Sony will soon drop the price of the 80GB PS3 to $500 and one of Ars Technica's "reliable" moles is saying that Sony will also bring out a $400 PS3 that ships with a 40GB hard drive and come bundled with the Spider-Man 3 Blu-ray. And lastly, Sony will drop the PS2's price to $100 (from $130).

    As PS3 rumors go, this one's hardly outlandish and seems like the logical next step for Sony as it tries to make up some ground to Nintendo and Microsoft in the console wars heading into the holiday buying season.

    This could be a possibility as game consoles usually drop in price around the holidays (X-mas/Thanksgiving).

    Um, that would make Blu-Ray more expensive to manufacture. if HD-DVD wins the format war, it will only cost more to manufacture Blu-Ray, because it will cause less of a demand to manufacture Blu-Ray drives cheaper.

    Yeah $300 is the magic number for MANY people. I don't foresee it happening too soon, because the PS3 is actually fairly expensive to make. They'd sell a hell of a lot more if they dropped back down to the traditional price barrier for console systems, though. Nintendo was well aware of that when pricing the Wii, and microsoft is also getting back down to that.

    Not talkin about HD-DVD, talking about the chinese-DVD High Def when they come out. Since China is the leader in the manufacturing industry those other formats will either drop their prices or become like the beta videos
