Playstation 3 console sales in Australia have jumped a whopping 400% following the price cut in the region.
The NPD Group released this recent data which includes both the 160Gb and 320Gb models of the console, both of which have been cut to an RRP of AUD$349.95 and AUD$449.95 respectively.
“This new price point really represents fantastic value for money as PlayStation 3 delivers full HD games, Blu-ray capability, plus music, movies, catch-up TV and more on demand,” said Michael Ephraim, managing director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia.
“Australians love not only games, but also the quality home entertainment PS3 provides. Sales are booming because PlayStation 3 is the best device to connect to your TV, at incredible value, to provide the ultimate home entertainment experience.”
Sony is anticipating this trend to continue all the way up to Xmas as it gets set to release titles such as Resistance 3, Uncharted 3 and more.
