Sony Really Wants You to Buy Tablet S and Play Games on it

on January 4, 2012 5:00 PM

Remember when we told you that Sony updated the OS on its Android-powered Tablet S to support the Dualshock 3 controller? Well, it looks like the thing is now $100 cheaper. Instead of $499, it’s now $399. That makes it $100 cheaper than the 16 GB model iPad. Take a gander the official product page and you’ll notice a little something else. There’s a pretty big emphasis on the tablet’s gaming potential.

Not only does the page feature the PlayStation’s infamous face buttons, but the ad on the bottom left claims you can pick up five free PSOne games when you purchase one. I guess this must be what Sony meant when it said it was going for a four-screen strategy over the coming years.
