The PS3 system will be $299 for the 80 gig system and $399 for the 160 uncharted bundle, just like myself and so many other people mentioned this past week. Your pal Oswald went down and got the proof so that the many haters and nonbelievers would get what they need and finally start with the enthusiasm that an announcement like this deserves. This Pic is from a sign that might be up in some stores near you, but be warned this price drop is not in any way officially announced by SONY. This price drop will take effect most likely the first week of September or sooner (NOTE: THE EXAMINER LISTED THIS EVENT AS STARTING ON SUNDAY AUG 16, THIS IN NO WAY HAS BEEN CONFIRMED). Sadly the PS3 slim is still just a rumor, but with the old hardware not being shipped anymore, for article go here, the slim can't be far behind. The YMMV deal with FYE is not active or YMMV that deal needs to be deleted. All stores will run this at the same time nationally. More info will come as I get it.


UPDATE 8/16/09: I Checked with every FYE in my area, 15 stores. All the stores have been told by the district manager, after an email I sent him, that this sale/pricedrop will be active once word from SONY is given. GAMESCOM 2009 is tuesday, that will be the first likely news that we get from SONY officialy.

Does this mean less bitching on the price or are people still going to say it is too expensive?

We're so getting sued again.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

I dont actually have the full info on that. I do know that the EXAMINER post is def. not confirmed. THIS WILL BE NATIONAL when it happens so I doubt it would be this sunday. You never know though.

I assure you, if this gets posted in the deals section, you'll have a) a bunch of moron questions and b) a lawsuit.

Maybe this one should just be moved to Deals, then. Also, what weekly ad is this for anyway?

King this is not a weekly ad, yet. I got this from the actual signage. The date is still unclear, but at least we know now that it's soon and that we can all save some money.

Wow, still too expensive for my tastes but it makes sense to finally drop the price a bit. (Also Pachter was finally right about something!)
