As is the case with every console, they arrive expensive and get cheaper as components get cheaper to manufacturer and things are redesigned to money. Then a company can either make more profit on each console sold, or drop the retail price.
Well, now we have another price drop. It’s been 8 months since the last one, when Sony knocked $50 off the price to take it down to $249.99 for the 160GB version. But then in February the PS Vita Wi-Fi model was released at the same price, so you just knew that another price drop was coming.
This price drop isn’t from Sony just yet. GameStop has dropped the 160GB model of the PS3 to $199.99. Not sure if this is for good, but it seems likely. I’m sure we will hear from Sony soon and they might make it official everywhere.
