    Is this the first AVC BD50, or have there been others? I hope the US version has the same specs.

    PS3 also costs relatively the same as the GDP of the entire European Union though.

    Okay... it's around $830 for the 60GB version (the only version) but you catch my drift. So what I'm saying is that it's much better to get your $499 console, get your Will Ferrell on for free, and buy the disc separately if you're into the whole PS3 scene.

    Yes it's very attractive!

    Let's be careful, though.
    It does NOT ship with the PS3, apparently, and I haven't found a site yet (including all Amazons in Europe) mentioning this offer.

    According to the article, you'll receive the Casino Royale BD through Sony, after you register your PS3 with them. But personally I like to see it mentioned with the actual offer, as well as the exact conditions!

    Oh, and the price isn't exactly "right" yet either: £ 425 (= $ 813) on the English Amazon, € 599 (= $ 779) on other European sites, for the 60 Gb PS3. And I'm even not sure if that includes VAT or not.

    (Dollar prices I mentioned are based on £ 1.00 = € 1.47 and € 1.00 = $ 1.30, VAT = 19% but only to be payed by European buyers.)

    Despite the prices I hear the pre-order is going quite well.
