Wake up this is misinformation ! Or miscalculation... 279 GBP = $525 US but it sells for $399 in the US. Calculating based on the same discrepancy in UK/US prices it can derived that the HD-DVD drive will be $185 US, the combo would then be $585, coming in a little under the premium PS3. That's based on current specs and price, and assuming the HD-DVD price will be ~25% lower than UK like the XBOX is. I'm betting 360 drops in price or includes a bigger hard drive or a game in the premium system to attract buyers.
