Sony to cut PS3 price in Japan, also release 40Gb

1 min read

Sony has announced that it is going to be cutting the price of its existing PS3 models in Japan this November by 10%. They are also going to be releasing the newly announced 40Gb in Japan on November the 11th.

The new lineup will be as follows

60GB – $470
40GB – $340
20GB – $385

Does something look strange to you? The 20 GB with 2 extra USB’s and backwards compatibility will cost $45 more than the model with 20GB extra hard drive space. Is the Backwards compatibility worth $45? We’ll have to wait and see but I would think the 20GB model is now on its last legs in Japan.
