Sony Cuts Price of PS3 DVR Pack
DVR kit bundle goes down by 4,000 yen starting tomorrow. White version on the way too.
PS3 is getting somewhat of an indirect price cut. Sony announced today that the system's "HDD Recorder Pack 320 GB" package will see a price cut from ¥39,980 to ¥35,980 starting tomorrow (March 1).
The HDD Recorder Pack includes the following items: a PS3 with 320 gigabyte hard drive, a Torne DVR recorder device, a Dual Shock 3, and power, AV and USB cables. The bundle was first released on November 18, 2010.
Joining the original HDD Recorder Pack, which includes a charcoal black PS3 system, Sony will also be releasing a version with a Classic White system. This will be released on March 10, priced ¥35,980 as well. Like the charcoal black device, Sony lists the classic white version as being set for limited quantity release.
All this activity is part of a new campaign called "Imada! PS3 Campaign" (roughly, "Now! PS3 Campaign." From March 10 through April 17, those who buy a PS3 system will be entered into a drawing to win one of 10,000 Blu-ray movie discs. Winners will be able to select from 20 movies. Further details can be found at the official campaign page.
