    Start scrounging for change, the next-gen might come with a hefty price tag.
    By IGN Staff

    January 27, 2006 - Those lucky enough to have gotten their hands on a 360 will tell you that after the hardware, games, and other miscellaneous peripherals, controllers, etc., buying a next-gen system 'aint cheap. But as much as a 360 may have hurt your pockets, it's looking like a PS3 will even more so. In fact, it's fairly feasible to assume that the PlayStation 3 could retail at anywhere between $300-$800 at launch.
    im still buying it lol....hope its not that much though...yikes..

    Smith is a bag of douche,FACT.

    I'd only consider the PS3 at $900 IF it records onto Blu-Ray and I'm stretching by saying I'd consider it.

    Otherwise....

    FUCK NO!!!

    1. I'm not kidding when I tell you that I have tons of unopened games on Xbox, PS2, and GC. My Xbox is modded and has 90+ games in it. Why should I jump when Sony says jump? I don't play what I have.

    2. I have a mortgage, wifey, and a kid, and a game system that expensive is out of the question...now if it did the recording thing I might be able to eliminate my TIVO. That's the only thing I have now that records in HD.

    3. The PS3's games don't look THAT good enough to justify a console triple the cost of a PS2.

    edit: but again...I would get one hot and I guarantee there'll be hot PS3s probably on a second or third shipment. First shipments are usually accounted for very well.

    Pretty common here.

    Wish I could catch up with someone for another PSP for those subway rides.

    I have been content though with my Treo.

    Of course not.

    You can always count on sheep to buy. Plus there are sheep with boatloads of money.

    If I was rich, I'd buy it. I'd be a sheep with money.

    IF I could get $1000 by then, I'd still say no.
