@larry korea is part of the asian market there, Do comparision with japanese and Hong Kong's price. not using NA or EU price compare at $571 its actually more expensive in korea than the other two asian market. With that high price, sony better pay blizzard millions of dollar to get that Starcraft 2 exclusive. This is the only way I can see korean will buy it.
a ps3 costs 900$ in ME and India. Arent they part of Asia. A ps3 costs 800$ in singapore. Isnt it part of Asia.
an x360 costs 460$ in HK.
isnt 460$ wayyy overpriced for a console without a nextgen player?
so whats the point??????
i have been to HK many times. Trust me they love sony products. I have been to Sogota,Kowloon malls and i never saw xbox on any of the malls in 2003.
HK ,Singapore makes a lot of money from tourists. I myself bought 3 ps1 games back in 1999 from Mustapha and Samsuddin market in Little India,sg.
if i am not wrong the aggregate sales of ps3 surpasses x360 on a monthly basis if you include all of NA,Asia and Europe .
Try to know before posting whimsical stuffs.
in Asia nobody pays 60$ for a pc game. In bangladesh ,India ,Pakistan,Sg,HK ,KOrea you can get pirated pc games for as little as 80 cents. ( i used to buy pc games for that price in Bangaldesh).
The cracks come with the CDs/DVDs.
You would barely find someone who would purchase an original pc game there.
But dont forget the ps1 and ps2 sold a lot of hardwares and softwares in those countries.
