It might not be official from Sony, but retailers disappointed with second week sales following the launch of Sony's next generation console have taken matters into there own hands and knocked £25 off the price of the console.



Our sister site, Gamesdog.co.uk, dedicated to all things gaming is reporting that following news last week of a PS3 price cut on Aria.co.uk, two other UK retailers have now followed suit and have taken £25 pounds off the RRP.

Both WH Smith and Play.com have reduced the cost of the new Sony console to £399.99, with Play.com including a HDMI cable and a copy of Click on Blu-ray.

WH Smith’s offer is due to finish on April 19, with Play.com not putting a limit on theirs.

Play.com is also extending their generosity to the core Xbox 360, knocking £50 off the RRP to retail at £149.99, and the Premium at £249.99. This offer will last until April 10 with limited stock.
