+ - PS3 Enjoys Retail-Wide Sales Spike After Price Cut-> 1

Submitted by donniebaseball23
donniebaseball23 (1888144) writes "Sony, after nearly two years on standing firm on PS3's price, dropped the console to $249, and it's been having an immediate impact. IndustryGamers reports that GameStop has already noted a "significant" increase in PS3 sales, while big box retailer Target confirmed an "immediate lift" in sales and recommended PS3 as a "great option" for its customers. Not only that, but leading e-tailer Amazon saw PS3 sales explode by 400% in the days after the price cut. All told, in the months ahead, analysts are expecting Sony to see as much as a 30% sales bump for PS3 this holiday season."

  • That's a very decent bit of hardware for $249.

    Unfortunately, I don't buy Sony products. Even MicroSoft is less unabashedly customer-hostile. Sony won't have me back until they have a serious change of heart, starting with an apology. I'm waiting.

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
