Sony PS3
If you were thinking about buying a Sony PlayStation3 console for Christmas then we'd advise you to check out Sony's official store, where both the 40GB and 80GB models have quietly had their prices cut

After rumours emerged of a drop in price for the Sony PlayStation3 console in the new year – a rumour which Sony rapidly denied – the company's official online store has cut prices of the 40GB and 80GB consoles.

Sony Style is now selling the 40GB PS3 for £249 delivered, while the 80GB PS3 console will set you back £259 delivered – we certainly couldn't find them anywhere else for cheaper.

We're not sure how long these prices will last and whether they'll be reflected elsewhere in time, so we suggest if you're after one you should take the plunge...
