We don't think $500 is cheap, either. But if you look at it from the angle of "price reduced $100," then it seems marginally more significant. We were thrilled about the PS3 price cut, but some of Sony's biggest devs are speaking out against it. Not so much against it, but they think it's not enough to make a difference. First was Konami
, now we're getting a wag of the finger from Square Enix's European and North American subsidiaries president, John Yamamoto.
Yamamoto said "I think USD 500 for PS3 is still a bit expensive for most gamers. Most of them think that price is still high." In addition to that, he demanded a price cut for Europe as well. While we'd be all about that
, the PS3 has only been launched there recently. Oh well, it might happen. Does this mean Final Fantasy XIII
will go multiplatform? We doubt it
. Don't you?
