In the US, the pricing is the same on all consoles, but I guess Microsoft aren't very good at converting their points to real money elsewhere in the world.
Supposedly MSP were originally priced approximately the same everywhere but MS doesn't adjust for currency fluctuations or at least not often. MSP are .0125 dollars each and .012 euros (I think). That makes 1200 MSP $15 in the US and 14.4 euros, $17.68 at today's exchange rate.
That 11 euros on the PS3 is $13.50, a nice little bargain, since it's $14.99 in the US.

Typical Microsoft. There's a reason I haven't been buying into Battlefield or Cod lately. Still, as much as I'd love to shout injustice and ignite a witch hunt, 1200msp is still obscene for what you're getting.
Why are you looking here?
I'm pretty sure that the Elite type subscriptions for COD and Battlefield are sold in real currency on Xbox not in MSP. Not sure about the individual content.

it's sold in real currency as well. the problem being that €=$ in those cases so europeans just pay more
my love is like a candle, if you forget me, i will burn your damn house down.
It's the same for PS3 folk, as they can pickup cheap PSN cards for less than face value. I remember purchasing a load of PSN cards for half price ages ago. Super cheap DLC then!
