You might think that no one in Japan wants an Xbox 360. But you know what they want less? The 20 GB model of the PLAYSTATION 3. Mega retailer Sofmap is only giving 27,000 yen cash to folks trading in a used 20GB PS3 (http://www.sofmap.com/spkaitori/kaitori_detail/exec/_/tid=SPSF/-/sku=B00251348/-/pc=2118001622829/-/RURL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.sofmap.com%2fspkaitori%2fsea rch_result.aspx%3ftid%3dSPSF%26gid%3dSPSF0101%26pn o%3d1%26PRDT_NM%3d3%26order_by%3dGENRE_DESC)...

...and 27,500 yen for a used Xbox 360 (http://www.sofmap.com/spkaitori/kaitori_detail/exec/_/tid=SPSF/-/sku=B00087819/-/pc=2118001322590/-/RURL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.sofmap.com%2fspkaitori%2fsea rch_result.aspx%3ftid%3dSPSF%26gid%3dSPSF0101%26pn o%3d2%26PRDT_NM%3d3%26order_by%3dMAKER_DESC). This is what you might call a raw deal for resellers, as the 20 GB model of the PS3 retails for 49,980 yen, while the 360 goes for a much cheaper 38,980.
Mock Sony's choice to limit European PLAYSTATION 3 sales to the 60 GB model, but maybe they're right.
Thanks for the tip, pokemogu. Michael McWhertor
