During a conference call detailing their second quarter earnings, GameStop executives confirmed that PS3 sales have increased by two-fold
since the price cut. Not only that, they mentioned that the PS3's increased sell-through rate has held steady in the weeks since the price cut and that they expect the sales to continue doing well with the release of high-profile PS3 games coming out soon.
Hopefully those 60GB PS3s won't run out
anytime soon, because consumers sure seem to dig that $499 price point. Even with games like Warhawk
and Heavenly Sword
coming out, it's not hard to see the PS3's sales go south again if the price jumped back up to $599.
So have you picked up a PS3 since the price cut?
