Over the last few weeks we've heard from Belgium, French, Spanish and now Italian retailers reporting that PS3 price drops are in the works to make room for a new PlayStation 3 Slim console's arrival.
Today an employee of a large Italian retailer has confessed the following on http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=17005119&postcount=53 under the username zallaaa, to quote:
"I can confirm the discount for Italy. I work for a big consumer electronic shop and we just received some bundles (80gb PS3 + Pacific Rift) that will be priced 299?.
Also I got an almost official confirmation that the discount is for emptying the channel for the slim version which should land the 30th of August (at least we should receive it on the 30th). 399?. The color is not sure, but silver it seems."
That being said, hopefully all of these reports will be confirmed on August 18th during Sony's 3-hour conference at GamesCom in Cologne.
