Agreed.. I was only looking at prices of PS3's last night actually as I saw last night my PS2 looks crap on my new 32' LCD tv. Buying some component leads as a quick fix but want a PS3 buy start of September. Quite a few of the big titles will be out by then.

I don't get why everybody thinks it's SO expensive. The 60GB premium is actually a good deal.

You get:

Blu Ray Player

Internal Wi-Fi

Larger HD(60G

=$600USD (Soon to be $500)

Then here you have the 360:

Premium bundle:

20GB HD

Normal Game System

-------------------

For most people, add on the following:

Wireless Adapter-$100

Larger HD(120G-$180

HD DVD Player-$200

=$400(Premium)+$480(Accessories)

Total: $880.

I mean sure, the PS3 isn't that mature yet, better games are still coming out, and the controllers need to be worked on, but really the PS3 isn't that expensive when comparing it to the 360 for the same features. Sure the 360 includes a headset, so you can add $24 to the PS3's price.

The units are priced according to people`s willingness to pay. If less people bought these items on their release, and be willing to buy bad revisions of them for $1000s on ebay, maybe they`d be forced to reconsider on the release of their next generation. People are fickle.

The pricing u have based the 360 on I feel is also further down it`s release date, which u could argue should be higher still in u`r comparison. The price is cut further now partly in an attempt to compete with peoples ideas of buy a ps3.

Even so, both camps are in disgrace imo, for not allowing u to add u`r own wifi, drives etc.

60g hard drive - what that cost u at newegg ? a wifi card ?

$180 for 20g drive - freakin A!

EDIT:motorstorm is awesome.
