Live PlayStation is reporting that the latest issue of PSW Magazine (PlayStation World) of UK is hinting that a PS3 price cut will be announced at this year's upcoming TGS. Maybe this will placate Activision's Bobby Kotick?
According to the site, the article says: "Expect the long-awaited price chop to be announced at the Tokyo Games Show." There was no mention of an inside source, as rumors are wont to do, and this one oddly sounds more like a certain "Yeah, I know what am talking about" piece. Still, how certain it is, we'll only find out when the event happens. Hmmm... maybe this was what Sony meant when they said the E3 was not the place for the price cut announcements. It's because they were saving it for the TGS! Maybe.
Meanwhile, the price cut is not the only thing we should probably be looking out for at TGS. The same magazine was also reported to say that a confirmation of the PS3 Slim will also be made in Tokyo. The mag said: "The PS3 Slim packaging looks almost identical to the the confirmed PSP Go, so it isn't a fake. Expect the smaller, lighter PS3 to be announced at th Tokyo Games Show in September, just in time for Xmas."
To our readers in UK, did any of you grab a copy of this mag? Any more details would be greatly appreciated. Until we hear anything official, we're tagging this as rumor.
This year's Tokyo Games Show is happening from September 24 to September 27 in the Makuhari Messe, Chiba, japan. Stay tuned for more leaks updates on this one.
