    Sony is using all the wrong economic methods.... they were trying to do a global release with only 500,000 consoles.... I think they're depending on the price of the console to give them a more steady revenue, otherwise if it was cheap everyone would go out and buy one straight away. But when it's 400USD, there will be the nerds that go out and buy it at first, but most people will wait for the price to reduce.

    Right on! Thats the only gripe I had with the consoles now, too pricey. But, just wait a bit and the prices always drop. But $100.00 games?? ROTFLMAO!

    If they go to 100$ games, you better believe pirating will triple, nobody will pay 100$ for a flippin' game come on now.

    read the article guys read the article. sony has already begun selling games through their store for $59.99. so $100 games are out of the question. and did u really think sony will sell games for $100?! LMAO! sony are dumb but they aint that dumb.

    as for the $400 console....nah sony have already said its gonna be $499 basic and $599 premium respectively.

    @joshcrick - 500,000 units are for japan and north america only. sony isnt doing a global launch for the ps3...

    100 bucks for a game is outrageous, buying 5 games is already 500 bucks, and I can use it build my own custom pc. Plus if the ps3 does get modded and games pirated, then people will just buy the mod and get copied games, its all that simple. Its a dumb idea.

    I will probably wait until a dramatic price drop to get one.
    Since I already have a 360 and I just started getting into pc gaming that's enough money tied up in video games.

    now its for sure:

    "UPDATE: Sony has begun offering PS3 games for pre-order on Sony Style. Price: $59.99, just like the 360. From the results of the poll and comments, Sony obviously made the right move. Sadly, it has also been confirmed that the Japanese price cut for the 20GB PS3 will definately not be making it to the States, at least at launch. "

    @prankz, that part wasnt here yet when the rest of us read it :)
