Huge PS3 Price Drop Coming?

41 second read

Sony has recently launched a brand new website to show off it’s upcoming 3D capabilities but there is something far more interesting available on the site.

If you head on over to their Lifestyle site and browse right down to the bottom you will see the advert for the Playstation 3 starting at $199.99… which would be a full $100 price drop from what the Slim is currently selling for and could well be a winning blow in this years E3 wars.

It could well be a typo but let’s hope not, a $100 price drop would seriously shake things up and would force both Microsoft and Nintendo to drastically slash their prices to stay even remotely competitive.

[Thanks to Scot for the tip]

    Thats good marketing. They probably removed the HDD, or just replaced it with a Tiny 20GB to bring down the price dramatically!

    Why didnt they think of this before!?

    If they removed the HDD it wouldn’t boot up. Little hard to sell as a consumer device that way. Also only Microsoft HDD cost $100. Reckon it’s a typo myself, but here’s hoping ……

    As much as I would like this to be true.
    I seriously don’t think a PS3 in all it’s marvel is going to be R2000.
    That’s cheaper than the current 360 Arcades

    I dont think it ould be true, the PS3 only became profitable recently. Them dropping the price so dramatically would send them back into a loss (again).

    Typo of note.

    That doesn’t prove that it’s a type. All that really ‘proves’ is that that page might not have been updated yet.
