True true. I'm going to get one because, I love Sony consoles. I've got PS1 and PS2 :)

My sister got the PS2 after the price droped then she give it to me for 50! So, I think I'm going to get the PS3 whenever the price drops! :p

The 360 is liek alot cheaper than the PS3 (150ish), and it can pack the same punch as the PS3 so sony need to re-think the price a bit.

hmmm......that kinda sucks. I plan on getting one, but when the price goes down. I think the main reason it is so much is because of the blu-ray technology that allows it to play the HD dvds.....once blu-ray becomes more common I am sure the price will drop.

Much too expensive. I realize that even this price is lower than the production costs, but for a gaming console this is just ridiculous.

I think Xbox360 would have won at that rate!
Even still the price is still too expensce...250 - 275 is understandable but this!!!

Hah! If they have any plan of acieving popularity with PS3, it would be wise to lower the price! My god that's alot of money for a console!

PS3 reserved for the rich now I guess. I don't want to pull a loan out to get it but I want to play Heavenly Sword. T.T

This sux.

Golly. £450 is a little on the expensive side... good job I've been saving up! :D

(It's times like this when being in full time employment really pays off ;) Although I know I'll get disapproving looks from my mother when she notices I've (inevitably...) got one...)

Check my new topic out... Heavenly Sword has been delayed until 2007... perhaps that will make it easier to wait for a price drop!

Im having a hunch it wont cost more than a 350 (at least standart version, that is if there'll be a cheaper standart at all... like smaller HDD, less extra accessories and etc)

I could place a brand new console under the nose of my mother and she wouldnt notice. LOL dont it before. She just thinks they are all the same! Mothers eh!

Oh on topic, i would never pay that, they can take a flying **** to themselves

BTW Dave you are right, you predicted a price like this.

if you think the prices are bad now, think ahead five years when PS4 will be due for release...now that machine will be expensive!

Yeah, why not not start a new thread here:mad: Something like:

Do you hate Sony yes/no.

Many people forget the mass market gaming business we now all love, was made possible by Sony (no, it wasn't Nintendo, because back then, at the early nineties, gaming wasn't mass market yet, it was more near dead)
Sony introduced the PlayStation, and because of Nintendo's mistakes, like piessing (-e) of important developers and by simply turning down the CD, developers jumped onto the PlayStation.
Because of the incredible capabilities, like real time 3D graphics and popular Arcade games running on PS, it became rapidly a huge success, because developers finally could make games they were dreaming of.
Because of this succes, the former rather small developers had finally the opportunity to grow, and not just, but really huge and powerful companies, all thanks to PlayStation.
Namco, Konami, Square, Core Design (think Tomb Raider here, most of the games were sold on PS), Capcom etc.etc. all made big money because of this, and still do.
The combined installed userbase of PS1 & 2 together is near 200.000.000,
so Sony can make or take the gaming business.
Don't forget about that before putting Sony down, thanks to Sony you can happy play on your Wii, or Xb360, without PlayStation, these machines wouldn't even excist.
