Its had a $200 drop here which is a "lot" of money so not really surprising the sales have increased this much.

$200 hey? Despite parity and strong Aussie dollar, we still get raped with game prices.

BitbyDeath2602d ago

Yea, dropped from $599 to $298.
Originally i paid $1000 for it... :|

Wow one thousand!?
And we complain (here in uk) that we're paying more than US gamers /:
250£ (proximately 320$) is not very bad after all!

No need to be a [email protected], man. haha

Anyway, this is good news for Sony. Good to see the price drop helping sales.

I take it you dont watch that 70's show :/

blumatt2601d ago

Nah, only seen it a handful of times. I didn't get the reference, bro. :/

Holy crap no wonder it increased by so much. Impressive indeed.

yeh they sold 5 last week instead of the usual 1 lol.

just kidding, but also not really - 400% is great, but 400% of "not many" is still "not many". we dont sell many consoles here in australia. the price was a HUGE obstacle for many people here, as like someone else said, it was $1000 at launch. up until this launch, it was still $550-$599. the price drop was to $349, but as soon as one shop - big W - bypassed that and dropped it to $298, everyone else had to follow suit basically. so now its RRP is basically $298 here - a 70% reduction from its launch price!

i was one of that 400% increase, finally got to replace my YLOD'd launch PS3. heres hoping the slim lasts longer.

The price wasn't that much of a factor, it was still outselling the 360 (well it reach 1 million before it did).

You must have a really low self-esteem, then. lol

Go ahead, post a reliable link showing Australian numbers. I'll wait.

You just compared an overpopulated developing nation with Australia. Try again.
