Gamescom 2011: PS3 price slashed globally, effective immediately

To close out their media briefing at Gamescom today, Sony announced a global price cut for the PlayStation 3. The new prices are $249 in the US, €249 in Europe, and ¥24,980 in Japan, and these are all effective immediately.

With the Xbox 360 leading the charge in NPD sales the last several months, it was only a matter of time before this happened. With the great lineup of games coming soon, though, the timing is quite good indeed.

  1. Vita and PS3 are essentially the same price now. Oh snap.
