During Black Friday 2012 Sony was offering the PS3 with 250 GB of storage for $199.99. That is now the normal price for the standard PS3 bundle. With the new PlayStation 4 launching in time for Black Friday 2013 we expect to see prices for the PS3 console dip even lower this year.
We expect to the PS3 to sell for $150 or less during Black Friday 2013 sales. Many consumers who can't put their hands on the PlayStation 4 in time for holiday giving will undoubtedly settle for a PS3. We also expect to see bundles selling for under $200 with several popular video games included.
Sony intends to keep selling the PS3 alongside the PS4 for the foreseeable future and the PS3 has a long life ahead of it yet. We expect the PS3 will still be one of the biggest selling game consoles of the 2013 holiday season.
