No Price Cut Coming to PS3 This Year According to Yoshida

Those of you holding out on purchasing a PlayStation 3 in hopes of a price cut are in for a bit of disappointing news, as Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that a discount on the company’s console is not planned for this year.

In an interview with Eurogamer this past week at gamescom, the Sony exec said that because the PS3 is currently in its “prime time” there’s no reason for them to cut the price.

“We are very happy with where we are in terms of PS3: the services, games, and the pricing included. So, there’s no plan for any change we can talk about,” Yoshida explained.

In addition, it doesn’t look like we’ll be hearing about the long rumored super-slim model of the console in the near future either, as Yoshida went on to say that talk of the PS3-4000 is nothing more than “a rumor.”
