PS3 price cut to $249

Today’s news comes almost exactly two years after the PS3’s last price drop. Sony closed out its Gamescom 2011 keynote with the surprising announcement that the PlayStation 3 has had its price cut to $249.99 in the US, 249 euros in the UK, and 24,980 yen in Japan.

So, about a year until the PS3 hits the golden price of $199?
