Tecmo Want Sony To Make This Cost A Little Less.

Sony will cut the price and everyone will complain it's not enough. Thus we'll have to report a story everytime something to do with a price is mentioned. It's a vicious circle and an annoying one at that.

Still, you have to feel if anyone can ask for a price-cut right now, it's Tecmo. With two exclusives in the works - Ninja Gaiden Sigma II and Quantum - you have to feel they're in a position to ask Sony for something. And at least they didn't take the Activision threat route.
"Whenever I discuss this with Sony reps I always ask them: 'Please cut the price'," Tecmo's Kenji Matsubara told CVG. "Sony introduced cutting-edge technology in the PS3, that's why people in the industry accept that the PS3 cost is so high, but we'd welcome a price cut."</blockquote>

The price-cut is practically confirmed at the moment. It's a question of "when" and "how much" more than anything.
