For all you complainers that think the PS3 is still expensive, well, you’re wrong. It’s actually cheaper to make now. So stop your complaining, cheapos!
• PS3 costs 70% less to make, still 100% expensive for you. Sony confirmed today that the manufacturing costs of the PS3 are down 70% since it launched three years ago. That means we can expect a price drop, right? Hahaha! Sigh… [Edge]
• Gasp: Tony Hawk: Ride will feature real life skateboarders? Wow! This must be a first for the series. No? Oh. Hmm. We, uh, knew that. [Eurogamer]
• Square Enix tests our patience with new countdown site. And we’re failing miserably. But if you wanna take the annoyance test, go right on ahead! Oh, and let us know what the hell it is next Friday. Thanks! [GameSpot]
• If Braid could fast forward time, it’d possibly be on the PS3 right now. Looks like it’s finally time for Xbox Live Arcade Game Braid to come to the PS3 as a German ratings board recently slapped a number on the game. You just know Cher is excited to hear this. [Kotaku]
