TWO JOYSTICKS!

£279.99 are you kidding me? thats not a deal :-P

I'm not sure I'm sold on the need for 3G on it yet. Having to pay a mobile contract along side it and then it'll probably be heavily restricted (so no gaming or downloading)... I'm thinking get the Wi-fi and then tether it to my Android.

Order one from the USA, save about £100

$250 for the standard in the U.s i believe.

Good to see us Europeans being ripped off over the exchange rate as usual.

US RRP set as $249

I think you'll find its import duty & VAT

By all means pay $250 in the US but add on shipping, import duty, VAT, RM collection costs then you'll be paying more than £279.99

After the hacking business, I'd have thought they'd be a little more sympathetic to us in Europe... Nope!


I refuse to buy it in the UK unless the price comes in line with the rest of the world.

iPad is made by Apple. Jobs could dump in a box and call it iTurd and there'd be a queue around the block to buy one.

Doubt this'll be massively popular at launch, expect £50 off the price within a week of launch

Pre-ordered WIFI only, Amazon are the best retailers so will always buy from them as a preference.

Everyone moaning about price = everything cutting edge is expensive. Dont like it then wait a year or 2. Remember how much the PS3 cost at launch?! All consoles and phones cost a stack to start with and why not, people will pay. I dont think £230 is too much considering the technology. And consider that smaller tech costs more money, and think of all the design and research that has gone into this. Whats the matter with you lot? Ok its not a deal per say as its RRP but it drew my attention to the fact Amazon have it up for pre-order.

To all the nay sayers - this will be huge and a more popular launch than 3DS.



Now Amazon just need them to pull the finger out and get the Playbook up for order.....

Lol, so true....I still laugh at the crowds outside the Apple and O2 stores on launch day.

This is a very tired internet joke. Things dont just sell well just because there shiney and new.

Sonny is facing alot of competition, i have had a total of 4 psps but am not getting that at that price.

Im waiting for a white wifi model. i think its worth it when you consider its almost as powerful as a ps3, but its portable. Uncharted looks amazing on this too!

just seen a video review and tbh, it does look very impressive for a handheld. OLED touchscreens arent cheap!

I think this could be a good seller for Sony.

3DS was cutting edge and fell in price a week after release..will be same with this no need to wait 2 years at all.

£230 is too much for a console that offers less than its £190 big brother. As for research and development..its a psp with dual analogue sticks and touch screen

This will flop like the original psp

its not a console for starters and did the original PSP really 'flop'?

I do agree it will be sub £200 within weeks imho

I managed to preorder this at GAME when they priced the 2 models the wrong way round. £229.99 for the 3G version ain't bad
