Sony today announced a $100 [price cut](http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19674547/) for the most expensive of consoles, the PS3.

|Drive Size SKU||Price Before 7/10||Price After 7/10|
Look at that, the 60GB version went down by a hundred bucks. It’s a price cut! Now, let’s look at it another way:
|SKU||Cost||Drive Size Before 7/10||Drive Size After 7/10|
Hey look, the prices are the same, it’s just that they made the hard drives a little bigger.
