A friend recently called me on the phone saying that he'd heard on the news that the sleek PS3 is going to be released in 2007 and will cost an estimated $900! Does anybody know if this is true? If so, THATS WAAAAYYYYY TOO MUCH!!!:eek:

Nobody knows how much the PS3 costs at this point, and won't until Sony announces the price. Stop listening to stupid rumours.

Exactly.

And besides, it'll be counterproductive to price it so high.

People were saying the PSP was going to be 500 bucks and guess what? It was 250 bucks!

I remember reading a newspaper article estimating the PS3's hardware to cost $500 or more, and saying Sony was gutting some of the capabilities to make it more affordable.

Estimates are only based on the console specs and hardware costs. Also keep in mind that companies are willing to sell consoles AT A LOSS (namely Microsoft with their Xbox and Xbox 360)

(on another random side note, i never knew newspapers have gaming articles in them :lol: )

We need that in a bigger font, since it applies to so many things

Stop listening to stupid rumours.

We'll know the price a few weeks before the console comes out. Until then: why do you care?

Well we just cant wait until it comes out so that we can bye it. "Hurry everyone, sell your gameboys and PS2s so that we can bye PS3!" Thats what I'd say.

My guess so far judging by the announced tech specs would be $450-esque pricing. Windy is right in terms of the value the Xbox 360 was supposed to have movie like graphics, THE HELL WITH THAT, the PS3's hardware has superior tech everywhere.


Hey beautiful people, you're better off trying to e-mail me than message me on here.

I did not play the blame game NewWindRider; I'm just gullible that's all. This kid said he had his Barmitzfa money stolen when I knew at the time (yet didn't realize it at the time) that he was, in fact, a Christian. Also he said that he was moving away once. ( I didn't believe THAT one) He and I play a game of fooling one another into believing rediculous crap; I just accidently got you all involved. sorry, but that is the truth whether you like it or not!

BTW: Sage.... no need to add insult to injury:rolleyes:

Additionally, "rumour" would also be the correct spelling in Canada. I realized that after I learned the US spelling...

You can't tell until the console is out. Sony is well-known for over-hyping it's systems. When you have some independant reviews available, you'll see which one is more powerful.


Thinking this over, this topic goes to "Other Games".

I wouldn't pay that much for a game console unless it did laundry.

Thinking about it, I noticed that PSX and PS2 were both priced the same when they first came out... $299.

(PSX came out in 1995 while PS2 came out in 2000...)

So, really, I wouldn't be surprised if it was close to $299. o_o

You know, you may be right! Hey I think that it will be around at least $200-$400 so dont get too excited.
