PS3 price dropped in august, US$ 270 for a GTA5 bundle.
270<>400 doesn't seem to be a big difference.

In comparison, PS2 price at PS3 launch was US$130, while the PS3 was US$500 I think.

Some experts say PS3 price will be as low as US$150.

Should we except another price drop after at PS4 launch?
As a X360 gamer, I am interested in getting a PS3+PSN+TLOF+GTA5+ all the other great exclusives.

Thanks are already $200 ps3s out there, so I doubt they'll lower the price much if at all. They need to recoup money from the ps4 losses.

Didn't they release a 12GB model for $199? Don't see them lowering that to make the bigger hard drives $199

PS3 12Go is US199 but is it really a good choice since GTA5 needs to install the disc. I am not even considering this version.

PS3 with 500Go at US199 would be be a great deal, after PS4 launch.

OK, so the ps3 with GTA v is only 80 more and GTA v accounts for 60 of it. Don't plan on price drops, the ps3 is still expensive to make and its still outselling Xbox 360 2:1 world wide every single week. There is little incentive to drop price for Sony.
