PS3 Gets Price Cut
That headline covers most of it really.
They decided to make it the “same” everywhere: 249. The currencies involved aren’t equal though, so let’s see who’s getting screwed.
The U.S. price is $249.
The EU price is €249, which is equivalent to $357.81 U.S.
Japan will pay ¥ 24,900, which is equivalent to $324.690 U.S.
Hell yeah, weak U.S. dollar!
