Today at Gamescom, Sony surprised legions of German and non-German attendees by announcing a price cut for their PlayStation 3 console, effective immediately. The 160GB PS3 is now priced at a competitive $250, down from its previous $300 price tag. The 320GB PS3 will also drop $50, now coming in at $299.
Sony also announced a limited edition inFAMOUS 2 bundle, which includes a 320GB system, a copy of the game, plus a 30-day PlayStation Plus membership. The price? Still $299.
These prices are far, far away from the $600 price tag the initial 60GB model when the system launched almost five years ago. Got to love technology! Will you be picking one up?
