Cheap Playstation 3s to hit the shelves soon?
Sony have been having a tough time of it lately, getting hacked by rapscallions and with shipments of consoles struggling to deal with the awful, awful, tsunami that hit Japan.
And so, in a bid to get things back on track, we could all be treated with cheap Playstation 3 consoles.
It is widely expected that the PS3 will drop in price in August. For a console that is currently being sold around the £250 mark, it appears that retails are willing to sell at £179.99, which is just great. The knock-on with all this is that, in an attempt to be the number one console, Nintendo and Microsoft will also have to look at chipping away at the RRP.
Even better is that there could be further price-drops as we make our way toward Christmas as console manufacturers attempt to inject some life back into a market that has been suffering as a whole.
Of course, the cheapest console on the market current is the Nintendo Wii which has been going for as little as £99 in some places. Some retailers are suggesting that there could be a brief drop to £79.99 soon too.
Cheap consoles for all then! Hurray! We'll never need to go outside ever again!
