Sony cuts price of PlayStation 3

    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.

    Too late in my opinion! I'm already sick of hearing about the PS3, a lot of the "converted" sony fans like myself will have jumped ship, my 360 won't have any competition

    What price are they likely to launch in the UK at?

    £500+ I think

    I think Sony will end up launching the 20GB version in Europe too, even though they announced only the 60GB version in the UK

    :shock: That price is absolutely ridiculous - where the hell do they expect parents to come up with that sort of money for their little terrors! I heard from a friend that they are likely to be around the £200 mark in the US so where do they get off charging that much in the UK??
