More retailers drop PS3 price in UK After Aria.co.uk decided to drop 25 from the price of a PlayStation 3 (PS3) console in the UK, some more retailers have copied the move in an effort to attract more potential buyers. More than 165,000 PS3 consoles were sold in the UK quickly, making the it the fastest selling "home console" in the territory. The following week however, retailers reported an (inevitable) slump in sales and interest.
Play.com and WH Smith have followed the move made by Aria and have dropped the price of the 60GB version of the PS3 console to 399. Play.com will even throw in an HDMI cable and a copy of the Adam Sandler movie Click on Blu-ray. WH Smith's offer is limited, extending to just April 19 but Play.com has set no limit for now.

Play.com also currently sells the Xbox 360 Core for just 149.99, an offer that is set to expire on April 10th.

I wonder how much pressure this going to put on Sony to drop the price on the PS3 I'm willing to bet we will see a price drop from them this coming holiday season.

I saw the PS3 in a Sony window for 399.99 today, 2 doors down from Woolworths selling it for 425 :-/ I can't imagine the PS3 being above 350 for much longer. I would think most people who don't have one already can't justify the cost so to increase sales the price needs to head more towards the 360 price although it will never drop as far as 150 :)

Can't wait to get my 360 ;)
