PS3 Price cut confirmed and a new slimmer PS3.
It finally happened, what you’ve been waiting for, rumors are true and Sony finally confirms a price cut in the 80 gigabyte Playstation 3 console to $299, this is probably due to the recent pricing of the PS3 showing that it is trailing behind the Wii and Xbox 360 by ALOT! The PS3 was normally priced at $399 so its a big price cut, this way its actually more affordable and comes into price range of its popular rivals the Wii and the Xbox 360.
Sony is hoping that the price cut will finally make it get more consoles sold. Along with the price cut Sony also announced that there will be a new sleek design of the 120 gigabyte PS3 coming out next month. This sleek, slim new system will weigh less, take up less power, and look awesome! This new design will also be priced at $299, so if you want to wait for the new design, thats probably best in mind. The new sleek design will be available on September 1st.
The 160 and 80 gigabyte systems will be discontinued after they sell out. Is Sony’s price cut too late? only to find that there sales are pathetic compared to that of the mighty Wii and Xbox 360. Also the gamers nowadays have already gotten there hands on a Wii or Xbox 360.
