Sony confirms price of UK PS3 downloads Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed how much downloadable PS3 games will cost UK customers. The range will be between 1.99 and 6.99. A European price of 2.99 and 9.99 had been confirmed on Monday. Of course, some UK gamers were interested to know the price of the content in the UK specifically, since the territory usually suffers higher prices.
For example, the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console will sell for &euro599 in European when it launches on March 23rd (60GB version). In the UK, the console will sell for 425, which converts to 630 (US$834). At the current exchange rate, downloadable games will cost UK gamers more in the higher priced category, with 6.99 converting to 10.35.

For the lower price titles, UK gamers will pay just a tiny amount less, with 1.99 converting to 2.95. Sony has still to confirm the European line-up of downloadable games.

big deal the scary thing is the ps3 will play ps2 games and ps1 games off of a hard drive emulator sony announced there plans where to decrease the expense of the console by not using the chipset from the ps2 so if you purchase a european ps3 or even import one the emulator nails out 2,000 titles

if you have a wii you can view this in there news station under technology they even talk about how this affects gameplay

stupid

having to fix a console for another country this is going to be harder to run games off the hard drive
