    They still have to recover for their losses which they faced because they had priced PS3 lower than it's manufacturing cost.

    Small step for gamers, huge leap for Sony.
    Now I hope sony can at last start making PS3s without loss.

    It would be hard to hope for a price cut though because of the extreme amount of losses Sony endured which need to be recovered.

    the manufacturing cost of 80GB PS3 during it's initial release is nearly $850. But they sold the beast for $599 dollars. Later they changed the emotion engine and adopted the cell processor which has lowered the manufacturing cost.

    Good time for you sony. Make the most of this moment.
