May be true for Denmark (though I'm not so sure), but not for Europe as a whole. Here, e.g., the average wage is around 1000-1100 euro (per month), and the PS3 is expected to sell for 599 euro (that is $779), or 54.4% of the average wage. The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (nationwide) gives an average wage of about $578/week in December 2006, thus let's say $2000-2200 / month. Thus giving you a PS3 price in the States of about 27.5-30% of the average monthly wage. Talk about higher standard of living and "working more and making less than you guys"
