Sony Planning a $199 PS3? 198486-ps3-199.99_original

Another Sony announcement leaked or just a misprint? It's hard to think Sony would cut the price that much just as they're finally starting to turn a profit on it.

They still are making a loss on every PS3 so there's no way they can afford to put it this low.

VERY unlikely... would be awesome though, but why should they do this? Sure they would get insane sales, but they would lose money again...

I think is just with a bundle with TV's and such. Like if you buy a tv you get a ps3 for 199 or something, but if thats true they should word it better.

Maybe they're aiming to recoup their losses with the spike in game and accessory sales that will follow.

Well the problem is that PS3 doesn't sell a lot of software.

True, because a lot of people just buy the PS3 as a blu ray player and not for gaming.
