Sony Exec: No PS3 Price Cut Planned
There were some gamers that expected Sony to announce a price cut for the PS3 after unveiling the PS4 and its pleasantly surprising price of $399.
However, Sony Computer Entertainment UK managing director Fergal Gara told GamesIndustry International that a price cut for the PS3 isn’t being considered right now.

“There’s no plans as yet,” he said. “The PlayStation 3 is a system where it hasn’t been particularly easy to get the costs down.
“We continue to look at opportunities, there may or may not be any more, I genuinely can’t answer to that,” he added.
“But it will certainly be a more keenly priced machine in relative to PlayStation 4. It will sit there as a viable entry level machine for years to come. It will be different by territory as to how long its life is. There’s still a lot of love for PS3.”
The PlayStation 3 is far from over though, as we’ve just one of the year’s best games in Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us and there’s still Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls and Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 6 on the way. Hopefully GT6 is better than its dismal predecessor.
