    Looks like we may have a PS3 price cut on our hands or an incoming PS3 Slim.

    With he removal of the 80gb, they will definitely lower the price of the 160gb. This is certainly going to happen.

    Dammit, I got an 80gb model...

    These price cuts might convince me to get a PS3.

    If they get a price cut for the PS3 to at least $250 then I'll consider buying one. They'll probably announce it at Gamescon in a few weeks or TGS 09 next month.

    This is great news, i hope the Slim will get things back in order for Sony again as well. A great console....just ruined by its price and complexity.

    the old 80GB was discontinued a while ago (MGS4 bundle)
    then the new one took its place

    The bundles we have here are 80GB's with inFamous

    looks like however that this is only in Japan (that being the 80GB being discontinued)

    I'm surprised there still hasn't been a price drop. I know that when the PS3 came out they were selling it for much less than it was actually worth and so they've probably been catching up to make a profit, but ever since making a Blu-Ray player has become so damn cheap they're actually selling PS3's for more than double what they're made for. Its outrageous that people are still buying them at the price. /Rant

    they wouldn't do that. its only going down to $300.

    the 360 Elite(with hard drive and everything you would need to buy regardless if you got the elite package or not) is $400 last time I checked, 80 GB PS3s are going to be $300 until they're gone and the 160 GB are gonna be $400 from now on. I believe they are making a Slim PS3
