    No surprise there, Germany is Sonyland when it comes to gaming (they also love PC).

    I'm more surprised it is doing well at that pricepoint.

    We Europeans will get effed by the system once again, I'm 100% positive on that. Games cost 60 Euros or more (some retailers, more often than not non-gaming shops, you know, electronics and entertainment shops, have them for 55 Euros SOMETIMES), and the consoles themselves cost the same as in the USA. For example - let's say the PS4 comes out in the USA for 499 dollars (I think 499 dollars will be the price at launch for both the PS4 and Juan) - it will cost 499 Euros in Germany/Austria. That sucks. Maybe I'll get a PS4 from England (amazon.co.uk? but they screw us Germans/Austrians over no matter what ) or maybe even the USA, depending where it'll be cheaper. But the shipping costs and other fees one has to pay when importing something... god I hate that.

    I'm sure I'll have to pay relatively (much) more than my fellow brothers and sisters on that great continent that is (North) America.

    Not yet. I signed up to that too but nothing has been sent to me. Once they reveal the price on the 10th I'm sure within hours it'll be available to pre order

    This is how it is outside the US.

    We pretty much subsidise gaming for 'Murica. $60USD game should equal to roughly $70 NZD. Games at normal (non-discounted prices) are at > $95NZD (on average around $89 USD). Sometimes more.

    Don't know why - even for shipping etc shouldn't nearly cost double.

    Yes - move simply for gaming reasons?

    That's $500 ex TAX and €500 inc VAT.

    Yeah, probably a place holder. The odd thing though is that is not available on Amazon.com yet, not even as a place holder.

    Woah woah woah. Yeah, it's cool I guess. But we all know Amazon is no Blockbuster.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    Most of those countries have huge taxes on these goods. Blame your tax system not Sony or Microsoft. With the way we are headed over here our leaders will have us just as broke taking care of everyone and we will see even higher taxes too but really your issue should be with your elected officials. You (country) want free health care and craddle to grave handouts you have to pay more taxes. We aren't there yet but as soon as Obamacare and the rest of the govt programs we keep implementing we will be Europe in a few dozen years...broke and taxing everything...probably including the air we breath if they can get away with it.
