Been dying for a PS3 but just can’t quite come to terms with the $300 price tag? Lucky for you Sony’s dropping prices across the globe. Announced by Sony Europe CEO Andrew House just before he walked off the stage at Gamerscom press conference, consumers around the world will very soon be able to pick up a PS3 $50 cheaper ($249, €249, ¥24,980) almost immediately. The U.S. and Europe will see the new pricing in the coming hours/days while Japan will have to wait until August 18th.

In other news: Sony also unveiled a new WiFi-less PSP that will come in at just under €100 — €99 (~ $140 USD). Besides the lower price, the more affordable portable gaming device carriers a tweaked design.

If you were a PS3 holdout, is the new lower pricing enough to move you towards the checkout line PS3 in tow?
