Techradar: Sony PlayStation’s US division has moved quickly to dismiss reports from earlier this week, emerging from anonymous sources apparently within Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, that the company had plans to slash the price of the PlayStation 3 around March 2009.
While both Microsoft’s various Xbox 360 packages and Nintendo’s Wii are pretty competitively priced right now, Sony has stuck to its guns on pricing.
Sony has constantly come under attack from some quarters for its strategy on PS3 pricing.
Following the rumours of a planned PS3 price cut emerging yet again this week, a Sony Computer Entertainment America rep told Edge:
“There are no plans for a price reduction on PS3 in March 09, and anything reported on or discussed otherwise is purely rumour or speculation.”
