PS3 To Break Even In ’09

Businessweek are reporting that due to gutting the original launch PS3 and tumbling component prices the “Black Beauty” might just break even in 2009. That would be good news as it would see Sony making some money out of it and possibly lead to the much-requested, often-refuted price drop.

As I’ve said before, a price drop gets the machine into more homes and the more users that have it, the more money developers can make from selling games for it so we’re all going to be winners as the quantity (and please lord, the quality) gets greater and greater. Who knows, perhaps 2009 really will be the year of the Playstation!
