I thought there were rumors of a newer, slimmer anorexic PS3 re-design? Maybe TGS will have something in store.

wat

The PS3isn't priced around a countries avarage wage, thats just stupid. EU =/= Germany. So in the poorer EU countries the PS3 is cheaper? nope...

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

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
Coca cola is about 15 cents USD for about 10oz in thailand around the country side

Wrong.
It's a Coca-Cola price discussion now

Still, though, even with the ridiculous lack of currency exchange, any drop in price is welcome. 10-something euros is still better than nothing, I guess.
