PlayStation Pricing Shakeup Hits Japan

Sony’s PlayStation 3 price shakeout spread to its home territory in Japan Tuesday with a price cut on its 20 GB and 60 GB PS3 models, the company announced. In addition, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan said it will make the latest 40 GB model available to Japanese gamers. The announcement comes less than a week after Sony Computer Entertainment Europe disclosed new pricing in Europe, the UK, Ireland, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia, and the new 40 GB model. Sony’s new DualShock 3 Wireless Controller will also make its bow in Japan this holiday season.
