Australians endure mass wallet-rape

Sony Computer Entertainment of Australia says there are no plans for a PS3 price reduction for the Aussie folks right now. Holy crap, I had no idea those dudes were paying $999, but there it is, and there it'll stay, apparently; nor is Australia likely to see an 80GB PS3 anytime soon.

Instead, Australians' $999 gets a 60GB PS3  bundle with two games and a second controller. The games that come bundled are different depending on the territories, but it's thought that the most likely candidates are Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm. Incidentally, this is the same deal that Europe's getting, with their bundles going for 599, or so we heard this morning from Sony Europe's David Reeves.

[UPDATE: Here's the announcement confirming the 425-quid European bundle -- in English!]
