PS3 Price Drop Goes Live for Both PlayStation 3 SKUs
The international online mega-retailer Amazon.com has officially axed the price of the PS3, however, it's only a $10 price cut.
Still, $10 is better than nothing right? The 160GB has also been marked down $20, to $479.
To quote: The price cut is also seems to have taken place worldwide as well, with both Amazon Japan and Amazon UK dropping the price of their respective PS3 packages too.
And with all the commotion caused by by the PS3 Slim speculation, now seems like a very peculiar time to lower the price...
Check out the $389 80GB PS3(with free shipping, nonetheless) http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-3-80GB/dp/B001COU9I6/ and the 160GB (still with free shipping) http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-160-GB-Uncharted-Fortune-3/dp/B001ELI4S4/. Enjoy!
So finally a price cut... so let's see those analysts predictions come into life or not!
I know it's not a great comment but hey, FINALLY the PS3 price received a cut, not big, but still a cut! Probably it won't affect the sales too much but still will be interesting to watch VGchartz next month to see if any spike in sales happened!
For some reason I highly doubt that $10 is going to make any difference. I don't think there was anyone that wanted a PS3 but couldn't get it, because it is too expensive, and will now jump at the opportunity to save $10.
