Of course a $100 drop is confirmed. When it will happen is yet to be determined. Lock this nonsense. Wait for Sony's announcement at E3 if they want to live.

It's not confirmed until we get official confirmation. But I admit, it's looking quite probable and an excellent move by Sony if true.

If true, it's a start but I was really hoping for $150 - $200. Let's see if this $100 drop can turn PS3 sales around.

It's not a CC special, but all it says is:

GAMERS / MOVIE AFFICIANADOS: Please note $100 Price Break on Playstation 3 Game System which brings the price down to $499.99 // Remember that you can get 5 free Blu-Ray DVDs with purchase of any Blu-Ray Player / Game system by going here: http://www.bluraysavings.com/

Expect the announcement at E3, bitches.

You know, this might not be any sort of official price-drop and Circuit City is just dropping the price to sell extra unsold stock...

This thread shows just how honestly pathetic the whole thing is.
If this were true, they knock 100 off the PS3, making it one of the cheapest bluray players also people will still bitch because bitching and whining on the interweb is all it is about anymore and gaming is just an afterthought.

That's great if true. For $500, PS3 will have a really nice price for what it offers. Still probably won't be cheap enough for the masses to bite, well, en masse.

It's true. I've seen ads for other stores that show a price drop.

I planned on not buying a next gen console this year. Now i have Ms giving a 3 year warranty and a possible holiday price drop (i hope), and now sony is dropping the price already. I may have 2 damn consoles in '07 now.

If that's true it would make me a little more interested in owning a PS3. Wouldn't mind having one in my dorm. But without a price drop I'm really not interested.

With respect to PS3's overall situation, a drop to "only" $500 is like putting a Band-Aid on a brain tumor.

How exactly is this a price drop?

Price drops implies it's nationwide, not just one chain of stores. The OP fails.

A $500 console is still expensive, but in terms of being a blue ray player and 5 free movies, the whole package does have some value to it.

If I were Sony, I would also bundle a game and a movie in the box in October, further increasing the value of the package in time for the holiday sales.

The OP is very reliable over there. I don't doubt this news.

$499 PS3 vs. $399 360 makes it a tougher post E3 decision for me. Come on Microsoft - let me see you DROP.

The PS3 was cheaper than any other blu ray player by a much larger difference the day it came out.

It's not just for Circuit City. It's going to be universal. CC is just the first to break the news. I expect this to take effect starting Sunday the 15th.

Okay we get it. PS3 is still too expensive. Nobody should have been holding their breath for a 200 dollar drop. 100 is a not a bad start, especially if it pushes the SKUs to 399/499 instead of a reconfigured 499/599.

Yeah, it's still too high, but yeah, it's a start.

Getting closer to the day I can purchase one.

Brilliant move by Sony.

$200 would have forced MS' hand on a price drop. Now MS has a false sense of security because the thing is still $100 more, so they'll try to milk a $399 premium even longer.

But we all know the perceived value just went into Sony's favor IF MS doesn't respond.
