SCEE’s just annoucned the long awaited PS3 price-cut for the Playstation 3.

The new prices are €299 in Europe, $299 in the US and 29,980 yen in Japan, nothing yet as far as we know on sterling. The price-cut is effective as of tomorrow.

    I can’t believe they’re not cutting the fatty price more! How are they ever going to shift the backlog? Unless… they’re counting on the shops discounting them further and absorbing the loss.

    They’re probably part of bundles to help shift them

    BBC is reporting the UK price as £249.99 but I’m guessing that is maybe just a guess?

    Why is it 299 Euro I mean the Euro is worth nearly 1 Dollar 50.

    “fu sony! we’r not that stupid”

    Yes, you are. Sony proved that when they launched the PS3 late, and overpriced… and everyone in Europe ate it up.
