PS3 now $249

At Germany’s annual Gamescom convention, Sony announced that all PS3 models, have been given a $50 price drop across the globe, effective immediately.

This puts the 160gb model at $249, while the 320gb model is now a paltry $299. The official Playstaion Blog has also confirmed a new inFamous 2 bundle that includes the game and a 320gb system, all for $299.

The new price point should, hopefully, prove to be a pretty good incentive for those still on the fence about picking up a PS3.
