New PS3 Slim will be $499 in Australia

36 second read


So have you been wondering how much of this new price cut will land up here in Australia?

Well according to a new flyer sent out by Gametraders we can start pre-ordering our PS3 Slims for the new low price of $499 which compares favourably to the European price of 299 Euro’s but is over $100 more than our American friends are being made to pay.

Let’s also not forget that $499 is $50 cheaper than the Blu-Ray-less Xbox 360 Elite, which makes it an even more appealing prospect.

    Anyone know what the old AUS price was?

    Ok so it used to be 699 AUD (not AUS) from what i could tell. So if this is true then they got a 200 AUD drop in price! thats pretty good. I still think the console will sell for R3699 or R3799

  • Not that it’s a bad thing but how did you get to this story? It shouldn’t have been visible to the South African’s on the site?

  • easy

    I can see it too, it shows up in my RSS feed 🙂

    They got more than a quarter slashed of the price in AUS and in the USA it was exactly a quarter so yes we should see R5000 go to R3750. BUT you can find a places that sell the PS3 for R4600 right now and those places should go to around R3300 – R3500. Hopefully. 🙂 . Then the secondhand consoles will also hopefully sell for under R2700.

    PS I bought my 80GB PS3 new and sealed with a year warranty last December for R3300 with a little bit of bargain shopping so people who do the same this December should be able to pick up the slim for R2XXX. :w00t:
