A week after the PlayStation 3 160GB and 320GB models had their prices slashed, sales of Sony's current-gen console soared by more than 400%, according to sales figures released by the NPD Group Australia.
The price cut kicked in on August 22 and saw the 160GB model priced at RRP $AU349.95 and the 360GB model at RRP $AU449.95. This represented a price drop of $150 on the former RRP of both consoles.
"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 the Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, Michael Ephraim.
