I’m not quite sure why Sony decided to fire away a post that arrived on my RSS reader that went “Enjoy new savings on PlayStation 3 systems“, but a quick check with Amazon showed that they’re already selling similar systems at the same price point. Perhaps Sony just wants folks to remember them when they spent their Labor Day lazing in front of the computer, wondering just what kind of impulse purchase they should make on the spot as the day passes by.
What we have on the table would be the PS3 160GB system staring right back at you with a $249.99 price tag, while those who prefer a game to come along with the console itself to get you started can always rely on the $299.99 PS3 inFAMOUS 2 bundle, which is a rather sizeable $50 discount off its original price, with the PS3 320GB system accompanied by the inFAMOUS 2 game and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to get you gaming right out of the box.
Last but not least, the PS3 + PlayStation Move bundle will see it retail for $349.99 with a 320GB PS3 system, a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller, a PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Eye camera, and a copy of the Sports Champions game amongst others. These seem to be rather attractive in their own right, and would the price points actually cause you to rush out and purchase a new PS3 system?
