Sony Doubles PS3 Production Think what you will. I think Sony's press conference in a couple of weeks will probably fuel PS3 sales back on top. What do you think? If the magic number were $299, would you buy? After all, it's only $50 more than the Wii, and only $100 more than the 360. Of course the Wii will probably have a pricedrop soon as well. The most crucial area for Sony now is North America...So hopefully they do put out the magic number. BTW, backwards compatibility is coming back too. Sony's patent for Graphics Synthesizer emulation just went through a few days ago, so that's the last missing piece of the puzzle.
