Sony website puts $199 price on PS3: Silly typo or…

…a sexy little price for a sexy little black console? Sony’s latest push for 3D has prompted the launch of a promotional website pushing the technology on unexpecting consumers. It sports a new PS3 price.

As we all know, the PS3 will be 3D-enabled and since it’s part of Sony’s 3D family, the console is featured on the company’s 3D landing page. Alongside 3D TVs and Blu-ray players, the PS3 sits with bated breath above its $199 price tag. Wait…$199? That’s not right!

The PS3 has only just turned a manufacturing profit for Sony, how could they be dropping the price by another $100? An E3 surprise to really push the console’s motion controller Move? Doubtful. It’s likely just a typo or a bundle deal with 3DTVs. Nice to dream though. We’ve included a screenshot of the price below, just in-case it gets corrected soon, which it will.

[UPDATE] – Now corrected.

    lol, it’s probably just a typo.

    But who knows, maybe a bundle with Move for 299 would make sense too. . . . .

  2. No way it’s $200. Sony’s just turning a profit with their $300 PS3s, no way they’d risk losing a profit (as far as I know, it still costs more than $200 to make).

  3. 199 for the best HD gaming/3Dbluray/home entertainment media machine?
    sounds too good to be true, i gues its a typo then

  4. we can dream

    Typo, it has been corrected now. Too bad but I don’t think Sony can get the price to 200$ ever, not for this beast of a gaming machine.
