PS3: £425

May 19th, 2006

Sony has announced that the PlayStation 3 will retail for an astonishing £425 in the UK, £109 more than the US retail dollar equivalent. Doh!

“It’s got blu-ray” is not nearly enough to persuade this robot that it’ll be worth that kind of outlay. I won’t be going near the PS3 until the price drops considerably, and I think many, many others will think the same, even if the games are stupendously good. And they’re not going to be.

No news on Wii pricing yet, but rumours hover around $150-$200. Much more like it for an altogether more promising system.
