PS3 UK vs USA pricing – ripoff Britain

Sorry if you’re tired of hearing about ripoff Britain, but this has really got my goat!

In the USA you can now get (From Amazon.com) the PS3 40GB Spider-Man Movie Pack for only $399.99, where as on Amazon UK we can get the plain PS3 40GB console on it’s own for £299.99 – does this sound fair? I think not…..

If you do a currency conversion at the moment via xe.com/ucc you’ll find that the Dollar price converts to only £196.45 – compare this to the Amazon.co.uk price of £299.99 – now do you feel this is fair?

Why is it that constantly we get ripoff pricing in the UK? are we too small a player in the worldwide consumer electronics markets? I personally think not,  so why oh why oh why do we pay so much more – even now when the exchange rate is so high between GBP and USD….

Grrrrrrrr……… rant over.
