Officials from Sony Computer Entertainment UK (SCE UK) have confirmed that there will be no price for the PlayStation 3 in the UK, despite a recent cut of $100 in North America. Instead a new bundle will be introduced with two joypads and two free games.

The official "Starter Pack" bundle will remain at the current price of 425 ($863) for the 60GB hard drive version of the console. (The 20GB version has never been available in Europe and there are currently no plans for the 80GB version.) The bundle will include two Sixaxis controllers, instead of just one, and a choice of two first party games.

The choice of games will vary from country to country, but will include either Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm as a minimum. The Starter Pack will be available in the UK from July 18th and in continental Europe by August 1st.

"With sell through of over 1.2 million units in the SCEE territories to date, PlayStation 3 has proved to be an instant and huge success", said SCEE president David Reeves.

"The exceptional value of the new Starter Pack will bring the excitement of PlayStation gaming to a much wider audience. Add to this a stellar line-up of software titles for the second half of the year and we are confident that this amazing value Starter Pack will encourage many more keen gamers to join the PlayStation 3 community", he added.
