If Playstation 3's are selling as poorly as I read, they'd be foolish not to drop the price. Not to mention that MS says it's commited 1 billion bucks to fix their console. They shouldn't have to of course, but at least they're fessing up to the problem. AFAIK.

3.6 million units sold worldwide, as of April 1st.

It has been selling better in recent months. In some countries it is the best seller, in others not.

It only went on sale in the UK, in March.

It may be late, but at least it works reliably! Some Xbox 360 owners are getting through a console every month.

Who's going to pay Microsoft's $1bn repair bill? Answers on a postcard...
