While i dont feel sorry for them, i do think sony should make it like 220 or 230E and not 250, since thats like 300.

Min wage here is $9.40.

EDIT: When you concider a can of cola cost around $0.05 to produce, yes it's complete ripoff.

Holy crap, SEND ME SOME!

Anyways, 500ml Coke in a restaurant would be approximately €2.50 - €3.00 here, NO unlimited refill though

OT: Also, I'm sure at some (MANY) stores it will take a while (AGES) to lower the price to €250...

EDIT2: I gotta say in restaurant it's more expensive, probably $1.50-$2.00 a 500-600ML glass but after you got unlimited refills xD
Here we pay 2€ for 0.5L in a grocery store and around 4.5€ in a resturant for 0.5L

Edit: I'm Norwegian

At exchange rate right now $250USD is £151.92GBP but with UK taxes the total cost of a PS3 is £151920000000000000000000000000000 lol

Real Price of a 160GB PS3 slim is $378USD but that is with the taxes.

I wish it was more expensive here... I drink way too much of the stuff. Usually get it for $2.99 a 12pk of cans (355ml).

On topic: I'm sure Sony is making a profit on their consoles now, they would have beaten the crap out of their suppliers prices already by now. I got mine a week after the first major price drop so I was able to get like $130 back from the store. I'm also sure this console will have some of the longevity of the PS2. The X-box sees to tank with the new generation for some reason so I kinda expect that again this time around.

Wait? ***? Is that really true?

How much is their income tax?

If it's about the same in the us then I am so jealous and they may be a little too whiny (EU) about it.
