Kmart ad

FYE ad  (Source: Kotaku)
New ads from FYE, Kmart, point to lower PS3 price

The rumors appear to have been true and the official price cut for the PlayStation 3 will be happening soon. There have been plenty of reports that a “slim” PS3 will be announced some time this month along with price cuts for existing “fat” PS3 units (currently available in 80GB and 160GB variants).

Now the first confirmed reports of signage pointing to the $100 price cuts are finally starting to make an appearance. Over the weekend, FYE leaked signs showing the 80GB and 160GB PS3s priced at $299.99 and $399.99 respectively – this marks a $100 price cut for each model. The ad notes that the pricing is “while supplies last”.

Engadget notes that further confirmation came from none other than Kmart. The retailer has an ad running on its website that notes “The Rumors Are Reality -- New Low Price & a New Exciting PlayStation 3”.

Neither ad lists a date for the pending price cuts.

Kmart has a pre-order page on its website for a "Sony PS3, SLIM" priced at $299.99. The release date is listed as 8/24

In fact, you pay so much in taxes that you cannot afford anything besides a tiny apartment and a car the size of a twin bed.

Most people in this country own their homes unlike a lot of Europe where they rent. The reason for smaller properties is we live on an already overcrowded island, there's limited space.

Also, as a resulted of the limited space our roads are generally a lot shorter, smaller etc than in the US so smaller cars work far better and they're far more economical to run. Why spend money when there's no need?

It's also funny that a discussion about PS3 pricing results in a discussion about healthcare ;)

Finally, we can afford stuff you know, we don't live on tea and biscuits. There's also no fog in London. And I don't know the Queen.
