174w ago - Today Sony President and CEO Jack Tretton has confirmed at Gamescom 2011 that the PlayStation 3 Slim will be receiving a price drop down to $249.

To quote: I have some exciting news to share with you today. As many of you know, it has been nearly five years since the PS3 first came to the U.S. market with its built in Blu-ray player, integrated hard-drive, built-in wireless, and unmatched hi-def gaming.

Today, more than 50 million PS3's have been sold worldwide, more than 2,495 Blu-ray titles are available and the PS3's expansive portfolio of games and video content on PlayStation Network exceeds 60,000 titles.

While others in the space are losing steam, PlayStation 3 is gaining momentum and giving gamers everywhere more of what they want: an unparalleled line-up of exclusive games and access to the best in sports, movies and TV, all at a great value.

Today, I believe that value becomes even more evident. I'm excited to share with you that effective immediately at retailers throughout North America, the 160 GB PS3 and the 320GB PS3 are now available for $249 and $299, respectively.

In addition, a limited edition inFAMOUS 2 bundle is now available at participating retailers across North America. The bundle retails for $299 and includes a 320 GB PlayStation 3, a copy of inFAMOUS 2 and a 30-day membership to PlayStation Plus.

The new price will make the PS3 more accessible than ever before, so there's never been a better time to join PlayStation Nation. We know that while future-proof technology is important to you, content is still king - that's why we continue to focus on bringing you exclusive "must have" titles that are unmatched by anything else on the market.

With games like Resistance 3, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and one of my personal favorites, Uncharted 3, all on the horizon, there's a lot of great entertainment in store for you.

Of course, PS3 owners also have free access to PlayStation Network and its lineup of marquee content services for watching hi-def movies, TV and sporting events. Netflix. Hulu Plus. Vudu. MLB.TV. NHL Gamecenter. We have them all for you...and it just keeps getting better.

We take our commitment to the millions of PlayStation fans out there very seriously. We don't just want you to be part of the PlayStation Nation, we want you to be proud to be a PS3 owner.

We have many exciting things planned for you in the months ahead, but suffice it to say we are hard at work to bring you more of what you want and more of what you expect. Stay tuned, there's more to come...
