PS3 80GB Price Drop Leak

Sony may be ready to bring down the price of the 80GB PlayStation 3 to replace the outgoing 60GB model, according to the latest weekly flyer for Wal-Mart Canada. A special promotion for the console would drop the price of the 80GB system by $110 Canadian to $550 as well as bundle the normally optional Blu-Ray remote. While higher than the $499 US price of the 60GB edition, the near-equality of Canadian and US dollars places it about $50 below the $599 US price for today's 80GB model while still offering extra hardware.

Upon announcing the 80GB console, Sony stated that it was likely to phase out the 60GB version by selling the remaining units it had in stock but did not say whether it would drop the price of the 80GB version once it became the only available model. A recent FCC discovery pointed to a cheaper 40GB PS3 but suggested a $399 price that would leave a wide gap between models if prices remained the same.
