PS3 Sales Soar In UK Following Price Cut

By Darryl Kaye on August 23, 2011, 4:09AM EDT

A retailer has stated that sales of the PlayStation 3 have soared following the recent price cut that was announced during Gamescom. It saw the RRP of the PS3 Slim drop to £199.99.

As a result, sales have increased by approximately 65 percent according to the retail source and there's a good chance this will improve, as Sony's marketing campaign for the move has only just gone live.

The timing could have been better either, with Deus Ex: Human Revolution releasing this week and PS3-exclusive, Resistance 3 releasing in a few weeks time.
