Sony will not take out Blu-Ray

Sony shot down Mike Hickey’s rumor yesterday in an interview with Business Insider:

“Late last month Janco Partners’ Mike Hickey said that:

  1. “Recent channel checks indicate increased speculation for a PS3 price cut announcement from Sony in the next couple of days.” (We’re still waiting.)
  2. Sony was planning a PS3 without a Blu-ray drive.”

“That would pretty much destroy the PS3’s backbone, our games were built on Blu-ray.” Sony marketing manager Kim Nguyen stated, commenting on Mike Hickey’s first rumor.

So what about the price cut? Were all still waiting patiently. (I hope)
