If you've been meaning to get a PlayStation 3 for a while but have never been able to stomach the price, you’ll be happy to know that Sony is apparently about to introduce another price drop for the console. Specifically, the company is said to be preparing to drop the (discontinued) 40GB model price down to $350
, the cheapest it's ever been.
The reasons for the price drop could be numerous. They could be trying to set themselves up for other price drops on other models, they could be trying to unload what's left of the 40GB stock (seeing as they aren't producing it anymore) or they could just be trying to get more interest in the PS3 before the end of the year. Whatever the reason, if you've been waiting on price to get a PS3 now might be your chance to get one. Obviously this price drop won't last forever, as once the existing 40GB units are sold there will be no new ones put back onto shelves.
