with Sony it's been a roller coaster ride as of late.
they produced perhaps my favorite system of all time, the PS2. the reason it's so great? it had the games to back it up.
then they move on to the PS3. they're planning for a 10-year life cycle, took a step sideways with the cell processor (in terms of how programmers would know how to use it - a single processor when computers are using duals and quads now, which is what programmers know how to program for), had a high price point, and didn't have the games to warrant a purchase.
this week? a $100 price cut AND plenty of games to back it up this holiday season. however, with the price cut of the 60GB model, Sony was quick to point out that they are putting out an 80GB model with a game included for $600 - back up to the original price.
just tonight? the latest news is that once the 60GB models sell out in America (which is supposed to be by the end of the month), the remaining 60GBs are going to Europe and elsewhere while WE get stuck with the 80GB, $600 model!!! what the hell?!?
tell me it isn't so, Sony. i had such faith in you...
if it's true, i've seriously got some thinking to do. do i purchase the 60GB for $500 right now or wait until the holidays - which is when i was planning on picking a 60GB, $500 one up - and just hope that the 60GBs are still being sold or some OTHER deal is taking place that brings the price down?
