According to our source, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the PAL version of the Playstation 3 will be launched on the 23rd March this year. The PS3 will be launched in the PAL territories of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia on the fourth Friday in March at a price of £425 (599 Euros, AUD$999.95, NZ$1199.95 in the respective countries).

Allegedly 'responding to retail and consumer demand', SCEE confirmed that initially only the more expensive 60GB model of the Playstation 3 would be available on launch, with the 20GB model to follow later in the year but this is 'dependent on demand'.

An expected one million consoles will be made available during the initial launch period, but considering the complete mess Sony made of the US and Japanese launches, you expect this figure to fluctuate massively. Maybe the over abundance of stock currently in the US will help.

The PS3 will also ship with the usual deluge of peripherals including:

* SIXAXIS Wireless Controller - EURO 49.99
* Blu-ray Disc Remote Control - EURO 24.99
* HDMI Cable - EURO 24.99
* AV cable - EURO 16.99
* Component AV cable - EURO 24.99
* S Video cable - EURO 16.99.
