blah, blah, blah....

now get over it. If you don't like the price, don't buy one. But regardless of what your simple mind thinks, this hardware is worth every pen-eeeeeeeee.

that sounds like a sony mind trick lol, im sure it will be a good console but it leaves alot of poor people opting for cheaper consoles, so higher price will equal lower sales, and alot of people will just wait like 2 yrs or how ever long it will take for the ps3 price to drop, some think its worth that price fair enough, but it kinda puts me off..no totally puts me off, and if there is ever a ps4 how much will that cost? close to 2k im thinking!

"It's twice the cost of rival game consoles made by Microsoft and Nintendo."

um, PS3's biggest rival is the 360, which costs $299 and $399 respectively. so, unless PS3 is now $599 and $799 respectively, then this article is severely misleading.

True, but wait a few months and he's right.

Yah I know it's obvious but it's coming probably after Christmas.

Lest us not forget the dreaded BUNDLE PACK. With it's all inclusive everything you'll need and 10 games you already have on 360 format...All for $$$ 1,250 $$$$$ PLUS $$ 55 $$

Lets give the price issue a rest. I can't wait for the PS3 launch day for good or worst.


"Gamevideos.com: "Six hundred dollars for the system, and then you've got, if you want to get two games, that's another $120 bucks, maybe another joystick, whatever, you're talking easily, you can get into the thousand-dollar range."

Ranking The Coldest, Most Ruthless Protagonists In Gaming

Not all video game protagonists are sweet, jolly, or wholesome. Folks like Agent 47 are cold, ruthless, and reserved and it shows.

I'd like to believe Joel's situation is more about turning into a calloused survivor in a cold-hard world who may have made selfish decisions. Not inherently ruthless.
