psh, the xbox has cost more than the PS3 for awhile, considering the $100 wifi adapter, hard drive upgrade and online fees. Not to mention the many great PS3 exclusives and blue ray playback not available on the xbox.
I've never understood why people think the xbox is cheaper when the ps3 offers a lot more value at less cost...

People are ignorant to the fact of whats in the box usually and see a game machine for 200 dollars (xbox 360 arcade) and another for 400 (ps3 a week ago) and nothing else. They dont usually realize that it costs 100 dollars to get a wifi adapter for 360, or 100ish dollars for a harddrive etc.
That and the mainstream games that people recognize is Halo and Gears which are 360 exclusives. The other big mainstream ones like gta, madden, final fantasy are usually multiplatform now so it doesnt hurt them. But once people can realize that a ps3 can do a ton of shit, then its a great deal. Only thing I want from my ps3 now is a dedicated netflix device on it (not one i need to stream from my pc) and the ability to play the .mkv containers :/

UK and Europe got really screwed. I think the slim model is also coming out at 250 pounds. Thats 410 dollars with the current (and now normal) exchange rates.

Meh, Isn't that always how it is in Europe? Seems that way from what Ive heard. I paid $599 for my PS3 early on and never regretted it.

Yeah it has always been higher. But it started to level out in the last few years.. now seems to have climbed back up. I think the Wii is the same price in europe as america though

I agree though. i paid $600. Worth every penny. I feel pretty bad for sony having to give them away at $300 now.. with all the technology and features on the ps3 thats way under-priced

When I said xbox was cheaper, its cheaper in a pirate's standpoint
my xbox 360 elite with 120 gig hdd + flashed firmware + extra controller + gold live card cost me $350 CAD total plus all games are burnt so like $1 a game
I dont need the wifi adapter (dont have wireless at home) nor any other additional items

But to the typical individual, then yes, ps3 is better price wise since all u need is the system and controller, possibly another controller and right now at the current cost, its much cheaper for the value in what you get

Europeans and Aussies always get screwed on video games related stuff...arent we glad not to be living in either or smile.gif
