GAME Commercial Director Tricia Brennan said:
“We feel that this is a very positive move from Sony. The price reduction will make it easier for even more customers to enjoy the incredible gaming experience you get with a PS3.”
“Video games appeal to a wide variety of consumers now, so everyone at GAME will be working tirelessly to keep the shelves full and make sure that customers have all of the advice and products they need in the run-up to Christmas.
“There are more games consoles available than ever before, and today’s price cut means they all represent amazing value for money when you consider the incredible technology and sheer volume of entertainment that they offer.
“Players enjoy singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, competing in dozens of interactive sports, and exploring vast environments using modern day consoles, and our customers will be spoiled for choice this Christmas.”
Sony today announced that it would drop the UK price of the 60GB PS3 on October 10th by around £75. The console will be sold for £349, along with a SIXAXIS controller and two first party titles.
New to the market on the same day will be the 40GB model. It will retail at £299 - the same price Xbox 360 Elite – but feature only two USB 2.0 ports. It will also no longer include the multi memory card port and will lack backwards compatibility with PS2 games.
