Following Sony's PS3 bundle announcement David Reeves, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, has expressed surprise that people are buying the PlayStation 3 at the £425 price tag it's had since launch.
Responding to a question about whether – regardless of what's included -
£425 is perceived as just too much for a console, Reeves said "It is, but surprisingly, people are paying that amount of money for it."
He then proceeded, flippantly, to dismiss the fact that we might have liked the extra 20Gb of hard disk space that the U.S. is getting with the 80Gb PS3.
"The difference between 60GB and 80GB is not really necessary. The difference in cost between a 60 and 80 is just Euro cents; it's nothing, because the cost of memory is so small."
