    from lik-sang

    Moving onto Sony, their various studios currently have a whopping 190 titles in development, a massive 100 of which are for the PS3. Stopping to look back too, the ability to download classic PSOne games and also PSP demo's on your PS3 was shown, where you can then transfer them to your PSP. The possibility of downloadable Sega Genesis and Turbo Grafx games on the PS3 was also brought up, but contrary to first reports, this is just a "possibility". Then while Ken Kutaragi said earlier this year that the PS3 was "probably too cheap", it seems he finally got the message from the public that we don't share his opinion, nor his fat annual salary. A price drop for the basic model PS3 drops it from 62,790 yen (US$ 539) to 49,980 yen (US$ 429). The 20 GB unit also fixes another common complaint and now includes an HDMI port like its bigger brother. In the US the machine will still retail for US$ 499 however, or US$ 599 for the 60GB edition. On the flip side, in Japan there's no suggested price for the 60 GB edition, it's left up to retailers, with many going for about 70,000 to 75,000 yen (around US$ 675). Also keep in mind that Sony announced only 20% of the production would be 20 GB editions, and that there are only 100.000 pcs for Japanese launch... In total, it's only 20.000 PlayStation 3 20 GB packs that will see the light of day in the Land of the Rising Sun come November 11th.

    maybe i might be able to get a ps3 now
    PSP is back!!!

    haha, old news . Posted it somewhere a couple days ago....

    Anywho, the PS3 is going to sell pretty damn well for the first couple of months. The real test is next christmass when there are more games out (hell, maybe even the christmas after next); only then will you be able to make an educated guess
    Today has been the most beautiful day I've ever seen.

    They already have games i want that will only be on PS3.
    But a lot of games that are good would be the only reason someone should buy one.

    I love my ipod. and yeah, I would never pay even $500 for a ps3, if it wasn't for freebie sites, I wouldn't even have a 360. but yeah, hopefully I'll be able to get both the ps3 and the wii, although I think the wii's gonna turn out better than the ps3. I'm really excited for november to roll around, gears of war, ps3, and wii all in the same month...wow...
