    They would never get it off the ground. They can't justify having that price when the XBox 360 came out over a year earlier $400. Sidenote - Sony also said at one point that the PSP would be $500. Original price was $299 and how it's $249.

    I don't really care because I don't play video games but 600 bucks for a system! That's ludicrous. It can't possibly stay that high.

    Sony can suck my d*ck if they want to charge 600 bcks for the system.

    If they did, I"m sure it'd still be sold out for months and months though.

    They put it out there that it will cost "north of $600," then when they release it at $450 it looks cheap.

    When they released the PS2 people were selling them on ebay for $600+. So it is actually smart for them to start off high and slowly lower the price to maximize profits, instead letting others cash in on their product

    Sometimes a company will price something higher to specifically make it seem like a big-ticket item. There's a local supermarket chain that has a store in a very wealthy area and a middle-class area. I was talking to one of the butchers in the wealthy area store and asked him if there was a difference in the meat offered at either store. He told me they received the exact same stuff, it's just that customers in the wealthy area won't buy something under a certain price point because they don't believe they're getting quality.

    I'll rock my PS2 for a few more years waiting for the PS3's price to come down. Even $450 is too much to pay for a video game system.

    Blu-Ray aint cheap. Plus they saw 360s going for $1K+ on Ebay, so why not get that money themselves. This is a good opportunity for MS.

    My cousin wants this. I just don't get how someone can spend $600 on a little box that plays games.


    Of course my cousin can't understand why I spend $400 on a pair of shoes.

    Re: PS3 to cost over $600?!

    If Sony is smart they wont do this..and I honestly think they wont launch it at that price. No way they come way over in price to the 360. I see it launching for right about the same price that the 360 did. Ill definitely be getting one..but not at that price...and after the hysteria dies down. So I expect not til March or April '07 before I see it anyways

    Neither can I. At least your cousin doesn't buy 20 pairs of PS3s.

    I will make due with PS2 for awhile. I refuse to pay that much money for a game.
