B3yond The Hype, an editorial in which Riyad talks about the difference between the price of a PS3 in Japan and the rest of the world.

"When I was in Japan a couple of weeks ago I decided to see how much the PlayStation 3 cost, just out of curiosity – I had no intention of buying one, honestly. However, once I’d done a little Yen to Pound converting in my head I realised that the 60GB, full fat PlayStation 3 cost the equivalent of £250 in Japan, compared to the £425 launch price in the UK! Realising that I was never likely to find the PS3 cheaper than this in the UK I duly slapped my Amex card down and walked away with Sony’s new baby – clearly there are no stock problems in Japan, since everywhere I went had loads of them."
