Sony has finally realised that as long as this ominous recession cloud is looming, people are less likely to spend a substantial amount of their wages on music equipment, so it’s decided to reduce the X series’ un-pocket friendly prices to less un-pocket friendly prices. It’s not a mammoth price drop, but it’s still a price drop nonetheless. The 16GB model will now cost £200 (down from £214) and the 32GB model will now go for £250 (£283 before).
Amazon must have missed the memo though, as it’s still offering the media player at those original and costly prices. There’s more good news – it’ll now be available from Play.com as of the 30th April with its new price drop, beating Amazon’s 10th May release date (and price tags).
