According to information on the Irish version of the official PlayStation 3 website, the 60GB version of the console will launch in the territory priced at EUR 629.99 - EUR 30 more than previously announced.
Text on the "Price" section of the website also suggests that the 20GB model will retail for EUR 529.99. However, it will not be available "at launch" in Ireland.
Back in May 2006 at Sony's pre-E3 conference, it was announced that the PS3 would cost EUR 499 / 599 in Europe, and the other EU territory sites still feature these price points.
But it seems that Irish consumers could be asked to pay more for their PS3s - or it could be that the other localised versions of the website have yet to be updated with the new price.
It's no surprise to learn that the 20GB model may not go on sale in some European territories. As early as last July, SCE UK's David Wilson told GamesIndustry.biz that it was likely the two versions of the PS3 will go on sale in the UK, but that there was still a decision to be made over whether this will be the case at launch.
SCEE was unavailable for comment at the time of writing.
