The latest rumor is that Sony will reduce the price of the PlayStation 3 and other products "within the PlayStation family" very soon, and the announcement will be made at GamesCom in two weeks time.
But maybe that's just too long to wait. Maybe you've got money burning a hole in your pocket right now, and the list of PS3 exclusives is just too tempting to ignore for another day. Well, you can always turn to Amazon.com, which has just dropped the price of this popular PS3 bundle . It features the 160GB PS3, a copy of the excellent Uncharted: Drake's Fortune , and a voucher to download Pain from the PlayStation Store. This used to cost $499 but the new and more attractive price is $50 cheaper, so perhaps this is an indication of things to come… Maybe brick-and-mortar retailers will begin similar sales soon, which would indicate that a permanent price cut is right around the corner. Either way, we have no idea how long this Amazon sale lasts so if it looks appealing, we strongly suggest leaping aboard now.
We still like to think Sony will package Uncharted 2 with the oft-rumored PS3 Slim for this holiday season. Or maybe they'll include Gran Turismo 5 , which might launch in December. Remember the GT3 PS2 package? Yeah, that thing sold .
