Sony boss Sir Howard Stringer has admitted that the PS3's higher than average price point is a 'high risk strategy', but has said that users are paying for its 'potential'.
Speaking at a press conference, Stringer said of the PS3's high price point to assembled hacks that, "Obviously, it's a higher-risk strategy - as all new inventions are - but if the PS3 lives up to its total potential, then I don't think anyone will be worried about Nintendo or Xbox's cheaper price."
Stringer acknowledged that the PS3 was an expensive beast, saying "The Price of the PS3 is high", but then went on to tell conference attendees, "but you're paying for potential."
Your paying for potential with all consoles.
But with Sony you're paying for the unnescessary BetaBluRay and foremost, pushing the format so Sony doesn't have to worry so much about the major loss of almost 600 million dollar the first quarter of this year and the coming ones also.

If you are going to ask consumers to pay a higher price you have got to justify that price to the them. I for one don't see the value and the feeling I get is that many others share this view. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
