This kind of news makes me think that there is still hope for my country! Giving that when Sony OFFICIALLY supports a teritory usua'ly it means full PSN acces with store and all bells and whistles! Come on Sony give Romania PS STORE/HOME acces!
P.S.: I know no one from Sony is reading this but it just feels good!
[email protected] registrations here, and just a few days ago someone from Naughty Dog contacted us. They are all watching... trust me.
yes this is indeed a very good news (i'm from Indonesia) but too bad the price is too high from "official price"
when you divide it by 10.000 - (US to IDR rate around 9700 - 9800 @ 03/10/2009) you got..
PS3: Rp4,499,000 ~ US$450+
PSP: Rp2,599,000 ~ US$ 260+
PSPGo: Rp3,599,000 ~ US$360+
compare it to non-official retailer (of course, no warranty from SONY Indonesia)
PS3: Rp3,400,000 ~ US$340+
PSP: Rp2,100,000 ~ US$ 210+
oh well, at least now i can purchase PSN Games without importing PSN Card and hopefully PSN Indonesia content's will at least comparable to Singapore's.
Yup That's what make me confuse and dissapointed. When i heard that Sony open their Official store in indonesia. I was on fire again because i really want to buy ps3 but with official warranty and cheap price $299 but then again when my friend told me the price.. it just... not make any sense, so i contact sony indonesia and they told that.
It's Indonesia Sony policy to sell that Ps3 with that silly price.. so like ils say... "oh well" it's all about the money... how to make a big profit with less source ... so back to psp and pc...
