Sony: Sorry Folks, The PlayStation 3 Remains The Same
With Microsoft lowering their Xbox prices, all eyes were on Sony, eager to catch a similar move. Bad news, PS3 fans: Sony won't move a cent.

"As previously discussed we aren't making any price moves this holiday season. In my opinion, we have the best line up of any PlayStation generation going into this holiday and consumers will be very receptive to it."
"With PS3 titles for this including Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift to name but a few of our multiple exclusives, combined with PlayStation Home and increasing multimedia features for the hardware, we expect to have continued momentum going into and beyond this holiday season," he added.
Will this lineup be enough to keep PlayStation 3 floating above the Xbox 360? Furthermore, is the Sony console still above the Microsoft one? Time (and NPD's sales data) will tell very soon.
