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
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
