Doesn't really surprise me considering the age of the PS3 and the fact that the PS4 probably be here in a few years.

Geez, Europe's getting kind of screwed if they're charging the same price in US dollars and euros -- a euro is worth US$1.44 today (US$250 = 173 euros). Actually, Japan's not doing well there either, since the exchange is 77 Y against the greenback (US$250 = 19250 Y).

Wonder what Canada's going to get, considering the usual border surcharge.

It's $249.

BB and FS have already lowered their PS3 pricing.
