Sony has said that the price cut will only effect North America only, and not anywhere else. This has been a blow to all European and Aussie gamers; where in Australia, they pay at AU$999 for the 60GB version. Both markets do not stock the 20GB version. As well, another blow comes from the fact that the 80GB version will not be coming to Europe and Australia.
Instead, a brand new “Value Pack” will be released. It would contain a 60GB Playstation 3, 2 controllers and 2 Games; Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm. This pack will cost in the UK for about £425. In other regions, the price and games will vary.
The new bundle will be released immediately at all SCEE territories, and in other PAL regions on August 1st.
