Sony drops PS3 price; 160 GB console now for Rs 16,990

Following the announcement at Gamescom just a couple of days ago, Sony has today announced a price drop for the PS3 home console in India. The 160 GB model will now be priced at Rs 16,990; thatís a Rs 3,000 reduction from the existing Rs 19,990 price point. The 320 GB version, which is bundled with the Playstation Move starter kit, has also received an attractive price reduction, dropping from the existing Rs 23,490 to the new price of Rs 19,990.

Yup, good price drop. It's pretty much at par with the new Euro price. A few hundred bucks more.

WOW!...this is one of the best thing Sony India has done....really i love it when they treat us on par with europeans if not special.....was fed up of seeing how we always end up paying high for almost everything considering our living standard and the europeans .....also with using some coupon from lets buy and all...the price should be withing 15k....and no better time today than ever to buy a ps3....seriously anyone who does not have it...go for it man...blu-ray,awesome line up of games......cheap games now on tps so dont have to worry of the maximum back library of ps3 games and above all upcoming games like team ico, UC3 ,the last guardian etc...

good pricing .. the new price gives a chance to non-working gamers to own the best console in the market.

This isn't something new. PS3 always gets a price drop along with the rest of the world.

Excellent price. On an un-related note, I hope they will price the Vita aggressively in India.

I'd expect 16,990 for the Vita too since it is also priced at 249 Euro like the PS3. Sony won't subsidise a new launch.

Did the NDS get a price cut?

15000 or 14990 INR would hit the sweet spot though :bigyellowgrin:

15000 is perfect for Vita. Though 16999 is not bad.

Lets just hope it isnt priced as retardedly as the PSP was back in the day for 25-30k :ko: or the PS3 at launch 30-35k iirc ?


Neat pricing, now I feel like I should sell of the 120 gb and buy the 320gb bundle with move :fear:
