If it's this bad for the UK and EU, I can't wait to see how badly the Australians get screwed on XBone pricing.

The PS4 is listed on Amazon UK for £600, and now the XBO for £430.

Ouch.

That's a huge difference in price. PS4 will have to drop to at least £500 in the UK to make it competative. Yes the XBox 1 does have issues, but If I was voting with my wallet it would be the XBox 1.

I can almost guarantee you that is a placeholder price, the XBO was listed at the same price the other day. The PS4 will launch in the $400-450 range.

Yup, with a similar markup for the UK market bringing it to around £430-480 here or so.

Nah, £340-380. The higher prices in European markets are partly down to VAT (which isn't included in US prices by convention) and EU environmental taxes on electronic goods. A direct dollars to euros conversion is normal these days.

At the current exchange rate, $499 is £320. The UK XBO price is £430, 110 more.

The UK taken for a ride again when it comes to prices, what a surprise. Though I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes available at £399.99 in the UK.

Like I said, the EU has tougher environmental policies on electronic goods, one of which imposes the costs of collecting and recycling electronic products at their end of life onto the manufacturers, thus making that service free to the consumer. Electronics sold in the EU also must meet stricter environmental standards during manufacture. This makes the cost of selling electronic goods in the EU higher than in the US, so they typically charge more here.

Microsoft are still probably making a profit in that direct price conversion, but it's not as much as it first might seem.

Re: Xbox One: $499

$499 for a system whose games force you to pay again for every console you play it on, most of the games have monthly subscription fees, and is targeting its appeal to casual gamers.
