Default Re: Spendy PS3 in Europe

Just checked the prices and you can pre-order one for 650€! That's definitely 150€ too much imho. I got the xbox360 for 299€(or was it 399?), on the day it was released so I have no idea why sony wants to shoot themselves in the foot with these prices. No way are people gonna pay that much!

I hope it doesn't sell well in Europe. These prices are getting ridiculous. If I didn't get mine as a gift I'd probably still not have shelled out money from my own pocket.

You get 2 delays and then have to pay more than everyone else, with nothing extra? Okay you have more games at launch but hopefully you have enough money left over after getting rapped.

How are they treating you like garbage when the mark up percentage is the same as on the wii and the 360?

When a games console costs more than a holiday you know something aint quite right.

PS3 has put itself into a niche market, not a good idea.

You know you're treated like the last s**t by a company when:


-You realize you're the last market (and place on earth, probably) to get the console. Close to 6 months after Japan and Usa.

-Eventhough you're the last one the get it, not only don't expect the artificially and ridiculously high price to be kept, you'll get the console later and more expensive. Yeah blame the taxes, the import costs, and so on, being the euro/dollar conversion favorable to the euro...


-There's still time for Sony to gift us europeans with another great jewel, maybe they'll refurb the damaged PS3 from USA and Japan and sell us brand new

Anyway, take my comments with a grain of a salt, because:
-I have never been to consoles (I only had a Game Gear, go figure )
-I'm a PC player and user. And I'm not going to buy any consoles in any near future. Neither Xbox360 nor PS3...

It doesnt just suck its also a load of nonsense. Its a good thing my favourite franchises are on the console or I wouldnt even be considering it at all. I dont fancy spending £425 to play Resistance at the moment.
