Super Slim Sharp TV Saves Energy, But Blows Your Budget

Here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for. Pricing for Sharp's sexiest, freshest and altogether loveliest HDTVs arrived yesterday. As stated at CEATEC in Japan, the 65-inch LC-65XS1U-S will sell for a whopping ¥1.28 million ($12,225), while the 52-inch LC-52XS1U-S goes for ¥980,000 ($9,243). We'd expect those figures to be a touch lower whenever they come stateside, but rest...

The price...

Finally some good news for Sony: U.S. sales of the PlayStation 3 console rose by 21% in June and Sony itself has reported that the recent $100 price cut on the 60 GB model has resulted in a 135% sales increase over the past two weeks. Of course, while more sales are (almost) always a good thing, it should also be noted that Sony is still trailing both of its rivals by a significant margin: Even...

Rumored PlayStation 3 Price Cut

It looks as if the second most-hyped and overpriced gadget ever is about to get its much needed price slashing. According to a reportedly leaked Circuit City circular, the PS3 is taking a $100 nose dive on July 15th to $499.
