Indeed, that is one HEFTY price drop.

Does this retailer have a chain in other countries?
OgTheClever  +   2305d ago
Considering a number of PSN games are valuing Euros the same as Dollars, this means that US retailers should start dropping the price to $249.

You know, its kinda fun listening to this while reading the article. Lol! Props!
-Mezzo-  +   2305d ago
I think Price Cut is confirmed.
techie  +   2305d ago
Me too. But I think more.

PS3 80GB discontinued. 160gb PS3 becomes standard and cut to $299.

PS3 Slim launched at $349.

raztad  +   2305d ago

That would be awesome, but I still believe Slim will come with a 400$ price tag.
TheMART  +   2305d ago
Think I can agree on that Deep.

Fat PS3 advantage will be 160GB HDD, but older hardware/bigger chips/more power/more heat

Slim PS3 will be @ 120GB, but newer hardware/smaller chips/less power/less heat/less YLOD

I'd take the Slim PS3 in that case, although the pics that showed up I don't like the doormat design.
techie  +   2305d ago
If only it was as thin as a doormat.

And the Slim will be around 40gb IMO
MetalGearBear  +   2305d ago
PS3 FTW!!!!!
Saaking  +   2305d ago
Too bad the 360 won't sell in Italy now.
-Mezzo-  +   2305d ago
looks like it.
joydestroy  +   2305d ago
i still think the 80gb bundle here in the US with KZ2 and MGS4 @400 is a really good price. i'd buy it if i didn't already have one.
fossilfern  +   2305d ago
Well when this price drop is world wide i think PS3 sales will soar and not to flame-bait here but it could shoot the PS3 into 2nd place in the console race.
raztad  +   2305d ago
That is Europe and the PS3 was already doing good over there, so I expect a massive spike in PS3 sales.

EDIt: Wow, I got a disagree for stating a truth and my expectation. Probably it is a hater.

What an outstanding deal. Go Sony.
kingboy  +   2305d ago
That`s the sweet spot..
Gitaroo  +   2305d ago
how much is that in USD?
brandonmj  +   2305d ago
It is
$357 USD. (Was curious myself so I checked it). The previous price (389 euros) is $557 USD
dylandurden  +   2305d ago
Yeah, we in Italy (and in all Europe) usually get things months or years later than the rest of the world and they're overpriced too :D
CrayzeeCarl  +   2305d ago
^^^ but the price is with tax included, right? That's how they do it in EU, I believe.
dylandurden  +   2305d ago
I don't know, no one pays taxes anymore in Italy

techie  +   2305d ago
With tax. And there's no point exchanging it - the markets are so f'd up now that it doesn't mean anything.
Sir Ken_Kutaragi  +   2305d ago
249 Euro = 213 Pounds???
That is near to the Magic number i.e £199.99!!! ;-P
manwh00re  +   2305d ago
Hope PS3 take 2nd place soon. Maybe more developers make use of the extra disc space
dylandurden  +   2305d ago
PS3 is already outselling 360 in Italy, so it's more a matter of further widening the gap :)
ForROME  +   2305d ago
I agree this is to move old stock out, 299 is going to be the price
freitox  +   2305d ago
yeah probably, still 300euros for a ps3 is an insane deal:)
No_NaMe  +   2305d ago
Are they this desperate ??
400 euros to 250 euros...

WooW , Looks Like Sony is fu*** up.
Blacksand1  +   2305d ago
Price cut and people who want a PS3
A lot of people is waiting for this for along time, PS2 can get off

that old system and buy a new one. all the Xbox fanboys can stop

crying because they brought a bad system when Xbox rush a system out

there and didn't care if it Rod are not 4 year's ago. Some of them

brought both so they say they not a fanboy but you are, when the

price come down people will buy and you will see Sony power and 2010

they will take the lead.

I like Sony, but make them sound like Jesus! :D
testerg35  +   2305d ago
So its 2010 this time? Let me mark that on my calendar.
manwh00re  +   2305d ago
Why do people disagree with out a cooment!!!
testerg35  +   2305d ago
What sucks is that the 360 is still cheaper in price which means PS3 fans will still use the excuse "360 is cheaper and should outsell the PS3" if the 360 sells more.
