New Zealand PS3 sales receive 300% boost after price cut

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia announced a 400% PS3 sales jump last week, and has today confirmed 300% in New Zealand.

The increase follows the price drop of the PS3 worldwide on 22nd August, which saved New Zealand consumers NZD$150 per console (approximately).

David Hine, director of sales and marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment NZ, said: "The PS3 is already the number one selling console. The new price point represents fantastic value for money as PlayStation 3 delivers full HD games, Blu-ray capability, plus music, movies, TVNZ Ondemand and more.  It is the ultimate home entertainment experience."

The PS3 160Gb model now retails for NZD$479.95, and the 320Gb model for NZD$579.95.
