[QUOTE=tmc8080;2678270]I can’t imagine there’s going to be alot of worldwide demand for this… afterall the ps3 came out before the big banks collapsed and people actually had disposable income (gasoline for example was hovering around $2.85 a gallon)… now most if not ALL of that disposable income is whisked away by other greedy companies for providing the basic necessities of life.
BTW, 8gb of Gddr5 memory sound like it’s going to be pricey so the whole console, maybe approaching $1k?[/QUOTE]
They’ve already said that the cost will be less than PS3’s introductory price so that means less than $600. I’d take a guess and say $399. I imagine Sony will get massive discounts on all the components for buying them in bulk quantities. Even then, they might still be prepared to take a loss on each console sale and make it up through the sale of games and other accessories.
