The 40G today is $399 & it was recently reported that Sony's cost was $400 so they cut production costs by more than 1/2 in 14 months.
I wouldn't look for another price drop soon but I'd bet on a $299 system by next Xmas.
The 40G costs around $570 actually.
If they keep losing the console war they may firesale to $299 but I doubt it.
