The UK will most likely sale their PS3 for $200 more than the US.......Seems to me the UK is getting the shaft

SCEUK MD Ray Maguire told industry magazine MCV that the "60GB version looks like £425 in the UK at the moment".

It's more likely that we will only launch the 60GB version," Maguire told MCV. More...
