        Yeah, that should only be around 750$, 800$ at the most.

          Well, you can't really compare prices of consumer goods in different countries using exchange rates. That's what Big Mac Index and PPP are for.

              A waste of money if you ask me, if you saw the press conference at E3 not very promising. Heck you can buy a XBOX 360 and Nintendo Wii for the price of one PS3.

                  And still end up with neither an HD-DVD drive or Blu-Ray. With Blu-Ray players hitting the shelves at $1,000, I think getting a PS3 thrown in for free seems like a steal to me.

                      ^^^The PS2 sucks as a DVD player and so does the Xbox I can't imagine it being any different for either the PS3 or the 360.

                        So what? Blu-Ray will be nothing until consumer prices decrease and stuff starts coming out on Blu-Ray. Early adopters will pay that premium with practically no benefit.

                        "I've got Blu-Ray!"

                        "Really? What can you do with it?"

                        "Uh, nothing really..."

                        "Oh, well, ummm, cool. Good for you."

                        "I can play the Blu-Ray demo disk that came with it!"

                        "Wow. Ummm, neato."

                            Not true Cing, they are going to be releasing movies starting next week. By the time the PS3 is released their will be plenty availible. Like GM said it might be a horrible player but only time will tell. Also the HD DVD vs Blu Ray battle should be interesting. http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/2006...pcworld/126131

                              Since I already own a 360, I may just get the hd-dvd on.
