Best Buy to receive new 80GB PS3 SKU after E3, will cost $399

All the signs are pointing to one thing, from the looks of it Sony is planning to introduce yet another PS3 SKU in the coming weeks. A reader has tipped Jousytiq to a new addition to Best Buy’s product database — a “limited edition” PS3 bundle that includes a 80GB system and two games. 

According to the database, this new SKU is scheduled for release on June 9th, which is one week after the start of this year’s E3 Expo. The listed price for the bundle is $399, the current price for a PS3 system now. Analysts have repeatedly stated a PS3 price cut is in the works, but this new SKU may suggest otherwise. Joystiq thinks Sony may instead choose to drop the price on a “bare bones” bundle, while offering this new “elite” package at the now-standard price.

For now, this new bundle may be exclusive to Best Buy, similarly to Target’s post-GDC bundle. The UPC listed uses a prefix that is typically used in Best Buy’s PlayStation products. We have more news on this, we Sony decide to announce  the special Deal.
