Sony to introduce a 40GB model of the PS3
Rumours abound that Sony may be about to cut the price of the 80GB PS3 which is surprising considering that the opposition has been offering consoles for very much less. Further, according to the source article Sony is not only going to discount the 80GB PS3 by US$100 to US$499, but also introduce an entry level 40GB model that will land just US$50 above Microsoft' 20GB Xbox 360.
Sony may also further sweeten the deal by bundling in Spiderman 3 on Blu-Ray disk.
For consumers wanting to game on the cheap, Sony realises that its PlayStation 2 is still a stunningly strong seller. With even stronger value PS3 bundles, to cheaper PS2, and newly redesigned PSP, Sony is gunning hard for a strong fall and winter.
