This is probably a great thing for Sony to announce– to get it’s momentum back, coming off the heels of the hacking and all the other negative things that may have been associated with the PS3.

Here’s some quotes from Jack Tretton about the announcement:

The new price will make the PS3 more accessible than ever before, so there’s never been a better time to join PlayStation Nation. We know that while future-proof technology is important to you, content is still king — that’s why we continue to focus on bringing you exclusive “must have” titles that are unmatched by anything else on the market. With games like Resistance 3Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and one of my personal favorites, Uncharted 3, all on the horizon, there’s a lot of great entertainment in store for you.
