Think the PS3 Is Expensive? Go to Israel

We really have no reason to bitch. Well, we do but, compared to the Israelis, we'll be getting the PlayStation 3 damn cheap. Reader Shalom reports that an official Isfar Rep (Sony's official importer in Israel) told him there will be no 60GB model shipped in Israel at all. Instead, the country will get the 20GB model in November via Isfar, and then the 60GB model at astronomical prices. Think the 360 is a cheaper option? It is, but not by much. Shalom explains:

At the moment Xbox 360 doesn't have an official importer to Israel and costs 1000$ (And Xbox 360 games cost as high as 110$), So if Isfar will get the 60GB model to Israel it can cost up to 1500$ (Making it cost like a new HDTV in Israel). As for today the PS2 still costs 300$ at retail from official import by Isfar.

The story is too old to be commented.

sucks for them, but just because it is more expensive somewhere else it does not mean it is cheap.
