While forums are going ballistic with chatter over the news of the Playstation 3 price drop, Sony might be pulling a fast one on the gaming community.
- The Playstation 3 now costs $499. Sony has gotten rid of the 20 GB model, and therefore the lowest price a consumer can purchase the PS3 is $499.
- Motorstorm is $59.99. The price could drop as well by the time the bundle launches in August.
- According to PriceWatch.com, the difference between a 60 GB and an 80 GB hard-drive is minimal. In fact, most of the 80 GB hard-drives listed are less expensive to buy, as many manufactures have phased out 60GB SATA hard-drives as the average drive size has increased.
The total cost of all the pieces in the package is less than the $599 sticker price.
