to get ps3 you still got to pay 499 or 599.
the price is the same.
you just get more.

ok as some people seem to be as thick as pig sh1t i will clarify.

to get a ps3 you still have to pay the same amount as you did before but now you get more.

its the amount of money that is the problem not lack of features.

to -_-_-_-_-_-_- ?

actually if it was 130 euro of instead of 2 game and an extra pad.
bringing the price to 470 euro.

i would probably replace my ps3 this year instead of next year !

i love games.
thats why i don't have a ps3 at the moment.
not because i hate Sony or ps3.

I SEE OTHERS SAYING THE SAME THING AS ME AND THERE NOT BEING SINGLED OUT OR DISAGREED WITH.
EVEN -_-_-_-_-_-_- SAYS THEY SHOULD GIVE THE OPTION OF THE MONEY OF TOO.
HYPOCRITE !

IT's a way of increasing the attach rate, which for the PS3 is quite poor at the moment. Not an uncommon move, but not a very welcome one either

USD$599 = 437 Euros

Price of 600 Euros here means we will be paying in Europe 163 Euros (USD$223) more for that same pack. (USD/Euro today rate = 1.37)

That USD$223 are enough in USA to buy 4/5 good games.

If Sony sells 4 million PS3 in europe, means 4000000x223
= USD$892,000,000.00 million Sony get as EXTRA income
from European buyers.

the point isn't missed, just FAR FROM SAME nice_cuppa !!!!!!!

But cuppa, we all know here that whatever Sony does, it would not be good enough for you.

Japan got a price cut on launch and is VERY CHEAP, USA just got $100 off the 60gb and what does Europe get? 2 old games that are budget and an extra pad.

EDIT: €600 is around £407 so if Sony sell it for £400 or £399.99 with both games and extra pad then that is a very good deal imo.

However some retailers have been offering good value bundles for a while now, mostly online retailers.

but isn't that essentially a better deal then a price drop to 500 euros?

500(ps3)+50?(resistance)+50?( motorstorm)+60?(2 sixaxis controllers)=660 euros
