The price here in Denmark is $900.
This would bring it down to about $750.

I'll be very suprised if they issue a UK price cut so soon after releasing the console in Europe. Remember it's been 9 months since the USA release, but only 3 months since the European release.

If they do price drop the PS3, I'm guessing of a £75 drop = £350 RRP, which will still be £50 over the X360 Premium pack, unless MS price drop as well, which I think they will.

My guesses are then:

PS3 = £350 RRP
X360 Core = £150 RRP
X360 Premium = £250 RRP
X360 Elite = £300 RRP

MS will make sure that there consoles are still lower than the PS3.

Great for the PAL areas but I think 20% would've been a sweet spot for that territory.

At the very least i guess 349.99. Then chip away over the next 12 to 18 months .
