The price cut is aimed at boosting the launch of the machine and making it more competitive with the Xbox 360. The price for the North American and European launch will stay the same. The surprise move will see the 20 gigabyte version of the PS3 sell for 49,980 yen ($430) when it goes on sale on 11 November in Japan. No changes to the price of the higher end model – 60GB version – or European and US prices were announced. [/quote:9fbc72afb8] source weird, the xbox has been no compition for sony at all in japan, but they still feel that they have to cut the price. Sony must really want MS to completely fail in japan (or want blue-ray too succeed) , no matter the cost September 22, 2006 at 9:39 am #33674 AnonymousInactive Fear of the Wii. They must not want a repeat of PSP v DS?
