    just found out......

    that in relation to sony dropping the price of ps3's by $100 for our american freinds

    the trend will not be following for us unlucky buggers in the uk despite us already paying nearly double the cost off a normal price USA console.

    i find this completely ridiculos sony could of lowerd the price down to at LEAST £350 to make it even slightly reasonable. ( and they wonder why uk sales are down) lol

    HOWEVER

    ..........

    the uk will be getting a new bundle package calles the ''STARTER'' pack it will include 2 free games out of a choice of(Formula One Championship Edition, Genji: Days of the Blade, MotorStorm, Resistance: Fall of Man and Ridge Racer 7) and 2 controllers the price will be £425

    not a bad deal might tempt me to buy one because my ps2 is nackared after 7 years of loyal service.

    but i dont konw about the rest of you UK gamers but i was hoping for a nice big price drop for the summer holiday like the US has had.

    Tell me about it, I'm so pissed off when i heard about the price drop in the US. Even if they do the starter package here in the UK £425 is still quite alot of money. Maybe it will drop when they release the 80gb version. Anyway i've been waiting too long.

    That's really disappointing to see from SCEE. I can't believe they won't even give you guys a price cut they are really asking for a punch in the ps3 sales lol.=P

    well if ye add up the 2 games and 2 controllers it is more than £100 so let me get this straight ye would rather get £100 off then get more then £100 worth of stuff wih the ps3

    that REALLY makes sence on so many levels!!!

    I personally cant believe you are suprised by the way sony are treating europe, the exact same thing has been happening since PSOne, just log onto playstation network using an american address and you will see all the things europe is yet to get and some things we probobly never see.

    We get shafted up the arse on the price and shafted up the arse for release dates even tho the system is totally region free we are always and will always be the last to get everything.

    I dont even know why I bought one as 99.9999% of the games being released for the ps3 have already or will soon be released for the 360, oh yeh i do know why i bought it, cos im a d1c ed!
