Their analysis doesn't support their headline. Basically what the article says is that systems drop a lot in price from launch to the launch of their successor.
Considering the PS3 started at $500/600, I wouldn't be surprised to see it at $199/249 at the PS4's launch (consistent with what they're saying in the article), but the headline is wrong. The PS4 launch announcement will have (likely) no effect on price, and it sure as hell won't be 64%.
