Which will be translated to ~80€ here in Finland.

I guarantee you that on launch day I will take pictures of PS3 games in local stores and they will cost more than that, ion fact, all Euro users if you can, create a profile page and take snap shots of youe gam,e prices if they exceed this amount?

those are just first party prices and games... ubisoft, sega, EA etc are not first party and can set prices to w/e they want. basically its how nfl 2k5 or 6 released for only $19.99 or was it $29.99?? a few years ago, while ea's madden released for 49.99. there is still going to be some 30 games or so released...

sony pretty much just set the market price for ps3 games, but companies could offer titles for more or less depending on their preferences. retailers also could list games for more than sony's RECOMMENDED price.

It's simple. Don't purchase games at stores. I bought Resistance for $45.00 USD shipped to me. Where? Ebay, where else?

Note the use of the words "during the introductory period".

I wonder how long that'll last & what the 'regular' prices are going to be?
