DAILY MANIFESTO

From PS3 to PS360

Wow, Microsoft needs to announce stuff more often. Just days after the company touted its upcoming 1080p Live! update and external HD-DVD plans, Sony announced a price-cut and HDMI support for its base model PS3. While the price cut, so far, has only been announced for Japan, a similar cut in the States would mean a four hundred dollar base model with HD support.

So why drop the price? Sony tried to downplay Microsoft’s 1080p and HD-DVD announcements, but I think they realized Microsoft eliminated their last two bargaining chips. Without those, the base PS3 is just a five hundred dollar Blu-Ray player without HD support, and the only thing crazier than that is a seven hundred dollar Blu-Ray player with HD support.

Don't get me wrong, much remains to be seen. Reason states that, even if Sony reduces the price of both models, the premium box will still be an outrageous six hundred dollars and represent the majority of the projected two million PS3's shipped this year.

Then again, now that the base model has HD support, all you're getting in the premium package is an extra forty gigs of memory, Wi-Fi, and flash memory slots. Those are nice features, but for the same price you could get three games. That's too sane to ignore, even for a company that just alienated the world.
