For those waiting on a price cut for the PlayStation 3 before finally jumping into the system’s offerings, you might still be waiting a while according to Sony Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida.

Talking to Eurogamer, Yoshida said that he feels the PS3 is in its “prime time”—and that with the wide variety of games coming out both this year and next, he believes it’s a perfect time for consumers who don’t yet own a PS3 to consider doing so.

Because of the strength of the system and its wide variety of titles, Yoshida says that Sony isn’t looking to make any cuts to the console’s price anytime soon.

“We are very happy with where we are in terms of PS3: the services, games and the pricing included,” Yoshida told Eurogamer when asked about a potential price cut this year. “So, there’s no plan for any change we can talk about.”

Of course, rumors abound about an upcoming “super slim” model of the PlayStation 3. If such a system is coming—and, really, at this point, it feels much more like “when” and not “if”—not bringing it with an accompanying price reduction sure would seem strange. At the same time, there’s no benefit to Sony stating at this point that a reduction in the PS3’s price tag will be coming soon. So, expect all of that talk to potentially be thrown out the window should a smaller PS3 be unveiled in the near future.
