No PS3 Price Cuts For Europe

No PS3 Price Cuts For Europe

According to Sony, North American PS3 $100 price cut has increased sales by a whopping 90%, but still, Sony won't cut European PS3 price.

Instead, European fans are offered a Starter Pack containing the console, a choice of two games and an extra Sixaxis controller for GBP 425 / EUR 599. The two bundled titles would be selected from the following first party list: Fall of Man, Motorstorm, Genji: Days of the Blade, Formula One Championship Edition and Ridge Racer 7. The extra controller along with the 2 games cost GBP 115.

We wouldn't comment on Sony's marketing strategies, but in the meanwhile you might want to check this site.

The new Starter Pack will be available in UK on July 18 and in Europe August 1.
