- Memory Stick
- HDMI
- Wireless.

Gotta hand it to Nintendo for at least forcing its competitors to innovate along with it.

Extra 100 bucks for another 40GB?

If the game is on a disc, who needs a drive that big anyways?
Im sure since Sony intends to market it as a Complete multimedia system besides being a gaming machine..I'm sure the HD's will be used for DVR capibilties


Linux installed on the HD has something to do with that....:smoker:

The price is a major setback for the console. Despite being cheaper than expected. It's 100$ more than the premium XBOX360 package.
I wonder how sales are going to be for the PS3...

if Sony made that motion sensing bit as a last ditch effort for the PS3 to seem to be better than the 360 or Revolution/Wii..... the price will sure change everyone's mind. like i said in the comments for the news post..... just pray that it's not motion sensing like the Gyration PC mice. ugh...... they'd really have dug themselves a hole with that one if that's the case.

Sorry but that price is ****ing ludicrous, its as most and more than some PC's.

Its just a console for fck sake, i for one will not be buying one until the price drastically reduces, irrigardless of whether or not i can afford one.

And i'll tell you another thing, most parents wont buy one either, i just think sony fck themselves up the ass with this price.

From a parents prospective it'll be:

1) Wii
2) 360
3)...
4)...
5)...
6) PS3

I am actually amazed at their greed, its quite astounding and it shows serious lake of judgement, in Japan that price isn't all that as the economy and their currency is so much stronger... but elsewhere its just a joke. in dollar value this is what it will cost across the world for the 20gb unit:

Japan: $536
N. America: $499
Europe: $633

So america is paying the least and europe is paying a whopping $134 more for the same damn unit, it is always the same and i think its a total euro-rape.

The price is a bit steep. many will complain, but this was expected... I really don't think it will detour many who want one. (including myself) Thats the reason people work to save $$ and purchase what they want.

but this is just a console, it is double what the ps2 sold for.
Well the PS2 initially was very sucessful because standalone DVD players were about the same price as Blu-ray players are now.

Sony basically depends on Blu-ray to take off for the PS3 to be a success.

the only reason Blu-Ray players are that high in price right now is because they're not mainstream. once more videos and stuff start coming out for Blu-Ray players, and the units start hitting the retail market hard, the price will more than likely drop pretty quick.
