And I'm one of those :D

I still think it's disgracefull how low our hardcore gaming population is over here when we have games like RDR. But when games cost $120 I guess that's what's gonna happen. Lucky for me I can buy my games online for more than half that pathetic price.

Wow, and the 360 had an 12 month head start in Oz.

From memory , Release prices 360 $649 and PS3 $999 Oz.

jessupj2864d ago

Actually it was more like 1 year and 4 months. The PS3 got released a lot later in the PAl regions. We always get shafted.

Rhythmattic2863d ago

The 360 was Delayed in Oz, Released March 2006 and PS3 March 2007.

The 360 launched in other PAL regions 2nd Dec 2005.
