PS3 Price Drop Just Around the Corner

August 17, 2009Written by Dan Massi


Since rumors have pretty much been confirmed for the discontinuation of the Xbox 360 Pro in favor of a lighter priced Elite, many have wondered what Sony’s response will be. Now, we may have a possible answer.

It seems a number of Europe retailers are dropping the current price of the PS3 to a much nicer, consumer-friendly amount. GameStop Iberia announced via Twitter that the official PS3 price was now €299 ($424.58), which is €100 less than the product’s standard price.

French electronics retailer Fnac is also selling the PS3 for a lower-then-usual price, offering the 80GB PS3 inFamous bundle for only €299. However, it seems that this is only for the Portuguese store.
