To the surprise of virtually no one, Sony comes clean and shows their hand early. That's right boys and girls, the 60GB PS3 is dropping to $499.99 tomorrow (Monday). Not only that, but that special Korean edition of the 80GB PS3 is making it's way stateside as well. It will retail for $599.99 and come packaged with MotorStorm.
So wait, doesn't that mean Sony lied to us?! Well yes, but only because they wanted to announce it at E3 no doubt. Unfortunately for them, various video game retailers like Target were already dropping the price ahead of schedule so Sony had to finally confirm the news.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you finally going to go buy a PS3 now? Or is it still to pricey to you with the drought of games at the moment?
Hit the jump for the AP press release.
