Care to share his source? If it's more reliable than EGM (Sony itself or any confirmed employee blog) then I will update the price. Sorry alot of information has gotten spread on the internet that isn't true. Remember, anyone can post anything, thats both the best and worst thing about the internet.

Thank you, much appreciated.

Edit:
As you might now, the august issue is released in July, and alot can change in a short period of time. Who knows, the price may have gone up, or they may have bought a new wafer factory and reduced costs even more.

I do somewhat too but if it is true then it's most certainly noteworthy.

To quote the editor from EGM, "Whatever you expect to pay for the Playstation 3, it will be more."
