$400 PS3 ships next month

We’ve heard plenty of rumors about a 40GB PS3 for $400 a few times, but now Sony is getting all official on us. Come November 2nd, you’ll be able to buy a Playstation 3 for the low price of $399. Need more storage? The 80GB version is taking a dive in price from $599 to $499. Slap another $100 down on a game and a Blu-ray flick and you’re good to go.

It’d be nice if Sony started packaging a game in with the PS3, like the old days of video gaming, but hey, I’ll take a $100 discount any day.
