The Playstation 3 has had a price cut in the US, but in the UK Sony have failed to offer the same deal to British customers.
The EU version of the PS£ is already an inferior machine, with the PS2 emulator not doing what the US version of the machine does, and now UK and EU customers have to pay more for less than the US customer gets.
Given that the Nintendo Wii is outselling the PS3 by a rate of 6 to 1 in Sony's home market of Japan, Sony really ought to be showing a bit more care to their European customers.
I guess there is a simple and clear message to potential Playstation 3 customers. With the PS3 set to become the Betamax of the games console world, avoid it like the plague and get an Xbox 360 and a Nintendo Wii, which will cost you the same price as a the PS3.
With Sony treating their customers with contempt, its the ideal opportunity to buy both the other consoles.
