Gamescom 2011: PS3 Price Cut Announced – 249 Dollars

on August 16, 2011 2:29 PM

Some were expecting this, and Sony Just confirmed it. The PS3 will now cost fifty dollars/euros less, as the price has been cut down (with immediate effect) to 249 dollars/euros.

Looks like Gamescom is the preferred venue for Sony to announce their price cuts, and even if European gamers still get the shaft (249 Euros convert to 357 dollars), it’s always nice to spend less on a great piece of hardware.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
