The PlayStation 3 has received a price cut, but not as big as the one people were hoping for. Play.com and Amazon.co.uk have lowered the price of their PS3 bundles by a £10. The price cuts were available as of yesterday (18th May). Play has a PS3 with DualShock 3 controller, 80 GB HDD and a copy of Killzone 2 for £289.99, down from £299.99. Amazon on the other hand have the same deal but you get to chose from a range of 11 titles including Killzone 2, Resistance 2, UFC 2009: Undisputed, Damnation, The Godfather 2 and Hannah Montana: The Movie Game. Or you can substitute a game for a HDMI cable. Its only a small price cut, but a price cut nonetheless.
The USA have also had similar price cuts, with the price of the 80 GB model on Amazon.com reduced by $10 and the 160 GB version reduced by $20. It would certainly seem a slightly odd decision to only reduce the PS3 by a mere £10. At present it would seem that online retailers that are taking it upon themselves to reduce the price as Sony has already denied a official price cut. We hope Sony’s Press Conference at E3 next month brings an official announcement.
