Sony took to Gamescom to announce they’ll be lowering the price of their PlayStation 3 hardware effective… right now. After staying at $299 for close to two years, the Blu-ray playing, 3D displaying 160GB unit will now cost $250. The price drop is worldwide. The 320GB model will drop to $300.
Sony also announced a bundle option that will include the 320GB unit with a copy of Infamous 2. That one will still be $300, so if you’re looking for a 320GB model, might as well wait until the bundle makes it to stores.
Finally, Sony still sees some life left in the PSP despite the impending Vita launch. The PSP E-1000 model will feature a matte black finish like its console brethren, and won’t actually feature WiFi. The benefit? It’s only going to cost about $100. You’ll still be able to connect to the PlayStation Store through the PC PSP Media Go software.
