Someone at Arstechnica posted a rumored new SKU. http://arstechnica.com/journals/thu...-in-our-mole-lets-us-in-on-sonys-future-plans It'll be essentially the cheaper build (the same used in the 80GB PS3) repackaged with a smaller HD. It seems unlikely though as the minimal hardware difference wouldn't justify a $100 price difference. That is unless Sony was actually making money off of the $500 version. So I think if we see a $399.99 PS3 by Christmas then either Sony has moved beyond desperate or their PS3 line isn't bleeding money like they were at the start. Also, the rumor is they'll be dropping the PS2 price to $100 and they'd put Spiderman 3 (retail price $40) in the PS3 for Christmas. A lot of this seems unlikely though. But... it would be nice to see the PS3 get cheaper.
