    WHITE PS3 How cheap can a PS3 get! (But still a rip off...just look)

    Although it seems amazing that the PS3 is now available for 299 with features removed that most people wont actually notice have gone, just look at what the same machine is available for in Japan...


    The new white version of the console is available for the knock down sum of 39,980 yen, which converts to about 170. Yep, and we thought our 299 PS3 was "affordable." How can they do this? Firstly, are they so desperate to sell them they'll let them go for the price of a wii, and secondly, why do the japs get such a HUGE price reduction, when we dont.

    Yet another time the UK inparticular gets screwed compared to the rest of the world.

    Heres a link....

    but it wont really, because in Japan there wii is like £105

    its all to do with what people pay for there taxes and wht there average income is.

    Uk wii = £179.99
    Usa wii = £125
    Japan Wii = £105

    Uk Ps3 = £300-£425
    Usa Ps3 = originall it was £300 when ours was £425
    Japan Ps3 = dont know originally but now £170

    also:

    UK prices include VAT

    US prices do not include sales tax

    UK / EU have to pay import duty as well

    I bet Sony doesn't get more profit per unit, but your governments will.

    Exactly! Now maybe there would be a little extra tax to pay for somethings, but the Japanese pay almost half what we pay. That means they are basically skrewing us for what they think they can get away with, which is what annoys me. We should all start only buying imported Japanese stock for everything and see how they like it!

    I'll wait a little longer before I grab my hands on one.

    I can actually sense another price drop soon -.-.
