Sure does. Yep I have the same gripe. $399 = £257, so how come we have to pay nearly £100 more then the US. I moved to Asia a few years back, so hoping I can get one closer to the US pricing

You're forgetting that if you ordered a US console you'd need to pay customs and import duty so the price would likely be no different. £350 is a great price IMO. Plus you'd likely need a voltage adaptor. UK console for me but great to know I can pick up some US and Jap games here and there.

I am so happy about this. As a collector of gaming merch, No doubt Japan will get a limited console release down the line. Its amazing being able to use my Japanese Lightning PS3. For those thinking out importing from the US remember you will lose your warrenty, have to pay shipping costs and have a high probability of being stung by customs. Not worth it imo.

The US price is before tax because Americans are easily fooled by pricing to think they are spending less than they are.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
