UK retailers slash PS3 prices

 

After a strong launch it now appears that UK sales of the Sony PlayStation 3 have started to drop off, forcing two major retailers to slash their prices for the console.

WH Smith took out adverts in the Sun newspaper last week, promoting a £25 (A$59) reduction in the retail price of the console. WH Smith has been offering the basic PlayStation 3 console pack for £399.99 (A$956) over the bank holiday weekend.

But good news for those not finding out until today - the offer actually runs until Tuesday 10 April.

Alternatively, online retailer Play.com has also cut the price of the PlayStation 3 to £399.99 (A$956)including delivery.

Cutting 13 percent, or £64.98 (A$155), off its own package, Play.com is offering the Sony Playstation 3 PS3 Console with 60GB HDD, HDMI cable and a copy of the film Click on Blu-Ray, for £399.99 (A$956).
