Didn't see a Gamescom thread so I made a separate one. Anyway, what are the odds of that? A lot of people were predicting one at E3, but one didn't come. I didn't think there would be one at E3 since the MW3 Bundle was just released. Last year a lot of people also predicted one at E3 and we ended up seeing one at gamescom with the Infamous Bundle. I'm really hoping for one since I could use a 2nd one and there don't seem to be many deals out there.

I would guess the odds are zero for a price drop on the existing PS3. I'd think chances are higher to see the announcement of the new slimmer PS3, and/or a something new with Vita.

The slimmer PS3 could have a price drop... I wouldn't expect an announcement of a price drop until it actually happens though. Otherwise it just cannibalizes current sales because people decide to wait for the price drop.

Enjoying BF4 on the PS4, bugs and all.

If they drop it won't come until the Wii U launch. Sony is in a difficult position with how to go about dropping the price along with the issues surrounding Vita.

The 5.0 is here

If Sony announces the revised PS3 hardware, we'll see the new and inexpensive 16gb model retail under $200.

Otherwise, the Sony conference will probably be more focused on new media partnerships, a possible PS Mobile launch announcement, and any last-ditch marketing for Vita.
