PlayStation 3 receives immediate price drop to $250, $300 for 320 GB models

Sony Playstation 3 News Gamescom 2011

To close out their Gamescom 2011 keynote speech this year, Sony brought out a bit of surprising news. That the PlayStation 3 would be getting a price drop down to $250 for the 160GB model immediatly after the announcement was made. This means that right now you can go to nearly any store at this moment and pick up 160GB model of the PlayStation 3 for $249.99 in the U.S., €249.99 in Europe, ¥24,980 in Japan and $349.95 in Australia.

The 320GB model will cost $300 in the US and $449.95 in Australia and this announcement is pretty interesting considering it comes nearly to the date with the previous price drop to $299.99 which occurred two years ago. If for whatever reason you haven’t picked up a PlayStation 3 yet, it is now cheaper than ever before to do so.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.

    I guess they have to get people interested since the network went down.
    Mines hasnt been on for very long since then.

    Well a price drop is nice and all, but I still can’t afford it. 🙁
    The hubby and I are in the process of selling some games, accessories and hand held systems so we can get his car fixed.
    Stupid POS car.

    I hate to sell game stuff. I’m so sad.

    One day I WILL have a PS3! Maybe not till the PS4 comes out.. but i will have one!
