    A UK price drop would be welcome, I’d like to replace my ancient release day purchased PS2, it’s having issues with purple game discs again :s

    guess it doesn’t help with the pound being so weak at the moment, lets get the hell out of this recession.

    When the eventual PS3 price cut appears I wouldn’t get too hopeful of it being applied to the UK purely down to the fact that the Pound has tanked so much.

    Isn’t it funny how nobody seemed to give a shit about this price cut but now it seems they’re exempt from something they couldn’t care less about they’re now getting all whiney about it and playing the victim card!

    Really people, that act is a bit transparent. Grow up.

    Yeah, and getting all up on your high horse at every given opportunity is dead mature. Cheers, Shatz.

    Why should it just be that the UK gets screwed over?

    Because the PS2 has been around €99 in the UK for the past few month already.

    Post letters of complaint to:

    I would have put the Chancellor at Number 11 but we all know he has fuck all to do with this mess and does what he is told.
