Sony drops price of PS3 in UK

1 min read

It seems like the fabled October 12th announcement is going to actually happen on the 5th of October. Yes which is today so keep your eyes peeled.

Sony will announce tomorrow (today) that has bowed to consumer pressure by not only reducing the price of its 60GB console, but also creating a 40GB version priced at 299 pounds to go up against the Xbox 360 Elite.

Now I have to say  this is about time by Sony, a R4400 PS3 is a good deal and will make it a worthy competitor to the Xbox 360. However it has to be said that Sony’s decision to only introduce rumble in PAL regions next year March is yet another slap in the face.

Lets hope they clarify that today as well because there is no way I am going to suggest that anyone pick up a console this christmas when I know it is going to be improved in March next year.

The new 40Gb PS3 is rumoured to have the same features as the 60Gb model minus the card reader and 2 USB ports….. Isn’t that what the 20Gb model was?
