As part of their Gamescom festivities, Sony have announced a price drop for the PlayStation 3 around the world, including a lowering of the console to a recommended retail price of AUD$349.95 here in Australia.

The Australian press release is careful to exclude the new US price, which is USD$249.99 - at today's exchange rate that works out to AUD$239.39, a difference of over one hundred dollars.

They've also announced pricing details for the PlayStation-branded 3D display:
Moving onto the stereoscopic 3D capabilities of PS3 - an area in which Sony group companies continues to lead the way in developing ever-more awe-inspiring and transformative gaming experiences - the PlayStation branded 3D Display was confirmed for Europe/PAL territories available this autumn, priced at €499 (RRP), AUD $699.95 (RRP),NZD $849.95 (RRP), including two sets of 3D glasses.
There's no other specs about the display - other than it is a 24 inch screen - so stay tuned for more on this.
