Sony Cuts PS3 Price

Sony announced a large price cut to many of its models of PS3. Read on to find out how much you can now save!

Firstly, the PlayStation3 with 160GB HDD, currently available at a recommended retail price (RRP) of £249 will be available at a very attractive new RRP of  £199 in the UK. A saving, theoretically – assuming shops adhere to the cut, of £50.

Secondly we have the larger 320Gb system, currently available at a RRP of £299 and will be reduced to an RRP of £249. Another £50 cut. The new pricing will be effective immediately, for North America and Europe/PAL territories, and will start August 18th, 2011 for Japan.

Just in case you were wondering about the rest of the world, here are the prices:

  • 249 euros
  • 249 dollars
  • 24,980 yen

That does mean that Europe pays (using a converter) £218, the US pays £151 and Japan pays £198. However, there are plenty of taxes on the US price, so Sony say. We wonder wether it will actually make a difference to import? Probably not..
