"No Plans Watch" returns today after a disappointingly long absence, just in time to bring you these comments from Sony Computer Entertainment America. See, online mag D-Pad posted a slew of PS3 rumours the other day, most promising among them word that the PS3 would be getting "more competitive" in terms of pricing from March 2009 onwards. Well, SCEA are pouring cold water on the rumour, issuing a statement that says - wait for it - "There are no plans for a price reduction on PS3 in March 09, and anything reported on or discussed otherwise is purely rumor or speculation". Imagine that. No plans! Not a single plan. Sony: "No Plans" for March PS3 Price Cut [Edge]
Lest we forget that Sony denied any plans for a price cut just a day or two before the 60 and 20-gig SKUs shed $100. Honestly, a business would be idiotic to announce a price cut and lose potential sales of higher-priced products. If the PS3 doesn't get an entry-point of $300 or less, many consumers will find it hard to justify shelling out the extra cash for one or two exclusive titles.
