Tempted yet?

So Sony have finally cut the price of the PlayStation 3 in North America, and a similar announcement for Europe is widely expected on Thursday from E3. Yes, it’s E3. No, we didn’t realise either.

The 60GB model is down $100 to $499, and the original price of $599 will now buy the new 80GB model and a copy of MotorStorm, one of the games I’d be tempted by if the hardware was less massively overpriced.

A price cut of similar proportions would drop the standard model to £350 in these parts, so that’s my guess. Of course, $499 is more like £250, but let’s not get into that.

Mind you, I’d not be surprised if they scrap the standard model entirely, and just give us the 80GB unit with MotorStorm for £425. Or maybe £400 if we’re very, very good. Time will tell.


Jake has been here since the beginning, with hundreds of reviews and countless other guff to his name. These days, not so consistent.
