Gamers have said it. Sales have proven it. $600 is too much for a video game console. In July, Sony (SNE) finally recognized this widespread belief and dropped the price of its 60gig PS3 to $500 last month.
This certainly hasn't caused stock boys across the world to dust off the PS3 surplus with any sense of urgency (and probably won't), but could $499 be the magical price point where a PS3 purchase becomes feasible?
