Sony | PS3 price cut and cheap PSP **UPDATE**

Sony has made two relatively surprising announcements during their Gamescom 2011 keynote speech.  And neither of them appeared to mention hacking.  OK, they’re both much more interesting than that – the first is that effective immediately, the PS3 will have its price reduced.  And the second is the announcement of a new, cheap PSP.  Don’t expect either to mean much in South Africa for a while still.

The 160gb PS3 is dropping to $249.99 in the U.S., €249.99 in Europe and ¥24,980 in Japan.  On top of that, there is a new inFamous 2 320gb bundle available that comes in at the ridiculously low price of $300.  [Source]

**UPDATE**

Eurogamer is reporting that the UK price for the 160gb PS3 is £199.
