Sony cuts price of PlayStation 3
Sony is to cut the Japanese cost of its forthcoming PlayStation 3 console by 20%, the consumer electronics giant announced in Tokyo on Friday. The price cut is aimed at boosting the launch of the machine and make it more competitive with its Xbox 360 rival.
The price for the North American and European launch will stay the same.
The surprise move will see the 20 gigabyte version of the PS3 sell for 49,980 yen ($430) when it goes on sale on 11 November in Japan.
No changes to the price of the higher end model - 60 GB version - or European and US prices were announced.
