    only sony could go to the tokyo game show, with everyone anticipating a new sku or a price cut...and give us a controller function they badmouthed a year ago.

    and then give us a new sku

    i'm pretty sure this whole company is drunk and the last guy who isn't, has hung himself for shaming his family. this might be too late. with the 360s holiday lineup, they might never make up the 6 million units worth of ground given up. this is the smartest thing they could do and somehow they still kinda did it wrong.

    Announce the 40GB at the Tokyo Game Show, and have the world holding out on buying that $600 PS3 for a lil while. Money making 101. Smart on Sony's part.

    ^yeah because the world was breaking down doors to buy $600 ps3s as it is. the whole world was expecting a price slash at the TGS. when you've got a $600 console and that many people want a lower price, it's just smarter to tell them you're going to do it. where everyone will see it. instead we got rumble in the ps3 controller, after a year ago when they told us "that feature is last gen to us". now it gains significantly less press. there's nothing smart about it. just because it's a big company, doesn't mean they can't run a business just as badly as anyone else. the ratio of intelligent decisions to insane ones for sony has to be around 20 maybe 30:1 at this point. you'd have to pay me to call it money making 101 considering the ps2 is outselling the ps3 2:1. which on the surface might look fine to someone but to sony, they want people buying ps3s now, not ps2s. that's not a positive. if the world holds out on buying a $600 ps3 in light of a new model, it shows there might not be anything appealing enough in the more expensive sku to make people want to buy it.

    Of course Ps2 is outselling PS3....PS2 has been out longer...it's cheaper and has a more established game lineup. PS3 just needs to bring down the price and establish a decent amount of good games. Like I said before..I like 360....but if PS3 got like at least 5-10 really dope exclusive games...lower the price of the console....Sony would reign supreme again. It's not even abt graphics..if ur game if fun to play..graphics don't mean too much..and Sony's games have always been fun..despite graphics. Take Syphon Filter....I STILL play that game to this day..even though the graphics are crappy to today's standards.

    no i mean it's outselling it on a week to week basis. and the ps2s sales aren't anything special, which speaks volumes of the ps3. besides, isn't it backwards compatible? says alot there too. it's sony's fault at the core.

    and if any console had a price drop from 600 bucks and suddenly got 5-10 amazing games they'd sell like crazy. but it's never that simple. and by the time they get these 5-10 amazing games, it maybe too late. with every week that passes, withe very week the 360 and wii sell 100k units per week neck and neck, while sony sells around 19k, that's one more week, and month, and season, for the 360 and wii to establish themselves as the dominant, and ultimately relevant consoles of this generation. if sony doesn't do something quick they risk being irrelevant for this generation entirely.

    except for their biggest game recently, lair. which they should've never allowed to become the dog shit it is. horrible mistake there.

    For one, you piece of shit. The rumor revolved around the PS3 in general not a specific region.
    Two.. The 40 GB PS3 only isn't backwards compatible with PS2 games and works with PSone games and has 2 USB ports..
    third.. I had a link I wanted to post from Best Buy's site but they pulled it regarding a bundle with Spiderman blu-ray...not to mention the FCC site had it for a while..
    fourth.. Sony or Microsoft suck at keepin secrets, So its not hard to REALIZE of course a cheaper PS3 version is coming to the US regardless of official announcement or not.. Sony would be stupid not 2

    the point is it was unconfirmed....when something is a rumor you dont go and post it as truth until you come up with proof for it....you post up an open link to gamespot which specifically only talks about a 400 euro ps3 and you make a statement about a 400 dollar US ps3....you need to learn how to correctly site information......

    if engadget is the supporting information for your post then why the FUCK are you posting up gamespot which has no confirmation at all of an american release??

    Its pretty damn obvious that if a lowered price is being released in europe that the same is being done in the US but that doesnt mean the details are the same..and it doesnt mean it will happen at the same time..they keys here are posting info with credible links....not babbling off incoherent ramblings
