Sony’s has officially set the price of the premium PS3 in the UK at £425 or $799 American.
To make matters worse, it seems that only the premium version will be sold there.
Europe isn’t getting a much better deal with the premium system coming in at 599 EUR or around $762 American.
Naturally, Sony is justifying the price by explaining that the system is “a bargain” when you consider that a stand alone Blu-ray player would cost more than the entire system. Seriously though – the only people who care about that dammned Blu-ray player are big time early adopters. The rest of us just want to play some games at a price we can tolerate.
In future news: the PS3 does not sell well in the UK, Europe, and (most likely) the U.S. Go figure.
