Your minds been made, it's the PS3 for you. Now come the most important part, getting a good deal. So you start your quest. And your hunt begins for PS3 prices. So here's a small attempt at jotting down a few areas of the world as far as their offer on PS3 prices goes. I am giving a broad overview of prices worldwide as any one may be reading this.
As you start your quest what will be surprising to note is the vast difference in prices between the US and the European countries. Asia will again be a surprise in the fact that prices will be much more competitive than the European counterparts. In the US Sony has recently cut prices by almost $100 facing stiff competition as it is from Nintendo and other counterparts. So a package now would cost you around $499. Europe will set you back by almost $705 with taxes. Wonder whether anyone buys at that price! Hongkong will be a gamer's paradise, with most games coming at fairly decent prices. The PS3 will be about $25 cheaper there while in Singapore it will be about $35 dollars more than the US price (Still wondering whether Europe has buyers at that price!).
PS3 20 GB' s Prices are:
in USA - Dollar 499 in EUROPE - Euro 499 in JAPAN- Yen 49980 in UK- Pound 340 in CANADA- Dollar 549 in AUSTRALIA - Dollar 835
PS3 60GB's prices are:
in US - Dollar 599 in EUROPE - Dollar 599 in JAPAN - Open in UK - Pound 409 in CANADA - Dollar 659 in AUSTRALIA - Dollar 1000
The above table should be giving you a very fair idea of how the prices stand worldwide. Then of course, there are the sites that give you deals, sometimes really good ones. So check them out as well. A word of caution though, do check the authenticity of the sellers, where applicable.
And then when you know where and what to pick up, get it, get set and start your gaming experience. Run, race, jump, cut, slice and destroy. Take your pick from your choice of games and lose yourself in the world of PS 3. I can almost assure you it will be well worth the price. Almost I say, because I do not want to spoil the special feeling. Let it be your own discovery, your own world of PS3 experience.
