GI: When I brought up the initial shock at the PlayStation 3 launch price, he [Shuhei Yoshida] laughed and assured me, "It's not going to be $599."

if sony puts the price berween 249 and 299.99 the consumer sweet spot for hand held devices i will buy it in a heartbeat. If it gets 399.99 or above thats a danger zone for consumer to have an hand held gaming device.

for me is 250-300 is a buy if its more then ill wait till it goes down or buy it use

inveni02395d ago

If it's $349 or below, I'm buying one, but I'd prefer $299 or below.

ABizzel12395d ago

lol. 599. We're so past that. Try 598. Seriously though I think it will be 299.

Right on, mate. $249 - $299.99 is the sweet spot right there.

And for that price, You are getting the most cutting edge handheld to date. Pretty much a PlayStation 3 in the palm of your hands, all Thanks to Sony :)

well we know its not 599 at least lol. i think a $400 model is too high so a $300 wifi and $350 3g model would be possible. i dont think its going to cost $250 that seems a little unrealistic.

^ yes and these are the MAX retail prices...

The funny thing about it all is, it was worth it! I paid that at the beginning of the PS3 life cycle and I've been very happy with it. It's just the cheap skates who can't see value in the long run.

ya that's what I was saying...get a job and stop complaining cuz 599 is like a half week pay geez

you have way too many bubbles

edit:unfortunately doing so wont be enough to get rid of your pointless rants and crap you spew

Kon2395d ago

Feel free to take them.

Myst2395d ago

Not 599!? Awesome 400 is probably the cut off for me, but after seeing how it is and depending on the games I'd be willing to have a little bit of leeway. Also...

MGRogue20172395d ago (Edited 2395d ago )

You know what... Make it $299/£189 & you've got yourself a deal, Sony :)

whoelse2395d ago

We'll be lucky if the price is closer to the £200 mark than £300.

mushroomwig2395d ago

£189 sounds too good, I expect it to be more like £250.
