Sony just revealed new global price cuts for the PlayStation 3 at Gamescom 2011, according to Joystiq. Effectively immediately, the 160 GB PS3 will cost $250, and $299 for the 320 GB model. The PS3 was priced at $300 and $350 prior to this announcement.

Better yet, for $300, you could bring home a new bundle with Infamous 2, a 320 GB PS3, and a 30-day membership to PlayStation Plus.

Video game consoles are certainly prepping early for the upcoming holiday season. The Nintendo Wii dropped its price and introduced a bundle back in May for $150, which includes a Wii console in black or white, a color matching Wii Wheel, as well as Mario Kart Wii. All eyes are now on the Xbox to see if and when it will match the PS3's price cut.
