If you thought the Playstation3 was expensive here in the US, be glad you don't live overseas where the box typically retails for around $843. That's right, don't complain to Sony about the high price of this Blu-ray-equipped player in the US unless you're prepared to give some pity to our electronics-consuming pals East of the Atlantic. This week, Sony decided to take advantage of the Christmas buying season by introducing a 40GB model that cuts the PS3 retail amount by 200 Euros. This will drop the game system to a more reasonable (for Europeans anyway) $562. The higher-end 80GB system will retail for $100 less at around $702.
