Playstation 3 comes to Europe in March
Today Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have announced that Playstation 3 will be launched in the PAL territories including the United Kingdom on 23rd March 2007 at a price of £425. As expected this will buy you the 60GB model, which for now will be the only version available as SCEE “responds to retail and consumer demand”.
An expected one million PS3 units will be made available during the initial launch period to all SCEE territories.
We’re reporting on this because the PS3 does of course come equipped as standard with a Blu-ray Disc drive (and is reportedly an excellent quality player) along with HDMI 1.3 output and full support for Dolby TrueHD. There is however no HDMI cable or Blu-ray Disc Remote Control included (though you can use the wireless game pad) in the box, with the official versions of those accessories set to retail at £17.99 each.
Blu-ray Disc playback will be set to Region B (Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand).
