I cant remember if i told you guys. I sold my PS2 yesterday for 50 (I only got it brand new for 80)
and 3 games each for 10. Im nearly up to the price limit for a PS3. Its not coming out for another year, why am i doing it already?

Because in another year your PS2 and games are gonna be worth jack-sh*t. smile.gif

Itll be worth about as much as the Nintendo is now... lol.gif

Yeah I predict nothing under 700 bucks (AUS) as the PS2 on launch was about the 650 - 700 mark.

I'm wondering if Sony will be operating at a loss if they mark down the PS3 too steeply, much in the same way M$ actually lost money with the XBox at launch.

As for the designs, black gets my vote - hands down. It's the most eyecatching and impressive console design that I've seen this year.

The specifications for the system are also pretty intimidating; considering I'm running a Sempron 2800 1.9ghz CPU, I feel a little bit ashamed that the next major CES is going to blow my desktop out of the water, kick it in the nads, and then spit on what's left. sad.gif

Even the PS2 games are going to be extinct? I thought they would be able to play on PS3 like Ps1 games can play on PS2

I'm fully certain that it will have backwards-compatability with all PS1 and PS2 titles.

^^ Now all speculation aside, I'm willing to go out on a ledge and agree that it will be fully compatable with ps2 and ps1. Why? Because Sony said so, silly! bored.gif

Sony also said that the killzone video is 100% realtime, with some touch ups after ward. Making it not 100% realtime.

Actually I believe all companies that launch consoles don't make any money with them, most of the money comes from software and software royalties. Granted that doesn't mean they'll give them away, but I don't see the price getting any higher than $399.

So when the PS3 is released what do you think the price of the games is going to be? When PS2 was released here in the US, the games were running about $50-60. Now with the new Blue-Ray discs they almost have to be more expensive than the usual confused.gif -Its called mathmatics. Look it up dummy.

In UK pounds I'm guessing 40 - 50. Which is only another tenner on what we pay now.

The PS3 will sell well no matter what, but Sony would do well to price it much lower than usual at release - that way they are assured of getting EVERYONE that is waiting for it - I mean, we've all been saving up since that first announcement, right?

If they put out the console at a ridiculously low price they can completely dominate the market - if there are enough produced before hand that is. If they don't physically build enough consoles, they will really fail in this genereation - Sony have come up short a number of times now - which is testament to the quality of the product.

They would be able to offset the cheapness of the console by inflating the price of games - this would also ensure that developers make a little more money and make better games as a result.

It would also mean that the gamer is forced to only buy titles they REALLY want - that extra tenner will be noticeable after you've bought a few games.

Who really cares about the price of the system. If I started to save up a little cash here and there right as the PS3 is released by the time I do work up the $500 it takes to buy it, it will have already lowered it price. I mean seriously, if this thing is going to dominate the market as much as it looks like it is, the price should drop a good bit within the first year of its release xmas.gif
