    im updating the first post as it happens for anyone mildly interested

    bbc iplayer app sounds great. i usually go on ps3iplayer.com through the browser but that will make it easier.

    when will we be getting this btw?

    the minis thing sounds like a rip of xbox arcade titles.

    didnt say, you no longer need to go to that ps3 site you know, bbc iplayer is optimised for ps3 allegedly although you get a rubbish big menu which is difficult to scroll,

    yep $300 is £182.00 at the current rate.
    so if we have to pay £260 then thats around 40% more than £182 yes?
    like i said, tax isnt 40%.

    they dont base their price on taxes but yes taxes add to the price in the uk....like i said before uk has 15% vat where as other countries may only pay 10% or less .....then there are the extra expenses higher transport costs and import taxes etc it all adds up and companies dont want to suck the costs up them selves........its business
