Price Cuts Confirmed "For PlayStation Family?"

The PlayStation 3 Slim, a Gran Turismo 5 release date, a price cut for the current PS3...what hasn't been rumored to explode at this year's GamesCom event in Cologne?

The latest news comes courtesy of PSInsider, who claims that a "very reliable source" confirmed that price cuts would be coming for "the PlayStation family of products." Obviously, we have to assume this will include the PS3 and in a recent update, that source apparently singled out the console. However, we're wondering if the PSP-3000 might drop in price, too, perhaps when the PSP Go launches on October 1. Many still believe the PS3 Slim will get revealed and it will sport a cheaper price tag than the default 80GB PS3 now, but there was no mention of that new model in this rumor. The source ruled out accessories as items that will be receiving a price cut, so at this point, we're pretty well limited to hardware and software. We suppose the PS2 could get another price cut although it may not really need one, and it's very possible that Sony is preparing more bundle packages for the holiday rush. We imagine such bundles would include top exclusives that have already released, or perhaps even exclusives that are set to release in a few months...what do y'all think about an Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PS3 bundle?

Anyway, Sony's conference at GamesCom is scheduled for August 18, which is only a few short weeks away. At this point, we just have to assume that at least one huge announcement is headed our way.
