      17% off makes a big difference – in short term anyway , I think a few people might have been holding out for this news……
      "After official confirmation of the price drop, Sales at Amazon.com for the 60GB PS3 have spiked by 2800% and have overtaken the Wii and Guitar Hero: Rock the 80s as the best selling item in the Video Game category."

      Of course there will be an initial spike in sales. But this price drop won’t lead to a huge long term surge in PS3 sales.
      What PS3 needs is a price drop AND some AAA titles.

      Yeah sales will be quite high for a week or two as people in the know who were holding out get their hands on it but long term I am also no so sure ps3 will approach ps2 figures – ps2 is still selling well with profit on each device and Sony have just created a new lighter (by a third, 600 grams from 900 grams), cheaper to manufacture and ship variant. MotorStorm bundled with ps3 though really sweetens the deal in my mind.
