PS3 coming to Malaysia this month
As a proud (and often disgruntled) European I know all about jumping on the Neglected Gamer Soapbox™ and delivering diatribes about such hot topics as frustrating delays or exorbitant price plans. Then you remember just how lucky you are to be even able to buy a PS3, considering there are less fortunate regions out there still waiting to see the arrival of Sony's magic black box.
Until now, Malaysia has been a member of this unfortunate bevy but it appears that in ten day's time our friends in the East will soon be gleefully rubbing their name from this ignoble 'list of the forgotten'.
Reported on the online edition of Malaysia's English-language newspaper, The Star, Sony Malaysia have announced that the 80GB version of the PS3 will be released on the 20th of September at an event planned for the 1Utama shopping centre in Petaling Jaya.
Pricing details are not known at this point but it has been confirmed that Soul Calibur IV will be the bundled game on offer with the first hundred customers also receiving Sony cash vouchers worth up to RM1,000.
Welcome to the party Malaysia!
