I had originally decided that I wanted a PS3 - now I'm not so sure anymore...

Come up with something new and innovative (and which nobody has already come up with) goddammit, Sony!

Did you just convert USD to USD?

The E3 nintendo conference will be on at 9am PDT (west american) time today. Luckily I'm going to be up late tonight to watch it. Check the nintendo.com website for more details.

From xe.com, just now, 599 USD = 471 Eur = 322 GBP however Sony's offical European price is 599 Eur = 409 GBP = 760 USD = we pay more than our US cousins. Import ftw.

Plus you'd be up for another game once you get the console and possibly another controller with that inital pack. So that could easily top 1k usd. Kinda sad really.

Pricey.. I wonder how much of a loss they're making on each console this time.

Anyone who buys the PS3 upon the first few months of launch is stupid. Wait a while, and watch the price drop down to what...£200?

Something like that would be nice, yeah

...'cause I sure as hell won't be forking out £409 for a console. I'd rather save the money and build me a better computer later on

It's their own fault for spending so much in the development and postponing it's release. Microsoft did their one and only smart move by releasing the xbox BEFORE the other two. It may be a while, but the playstation will eventually drop to a decent price we can all afford. Then again, I'd rather have a super PC like talhoffer said, as I'm on here more than i am any console.
