    Default Sony to launch cheaper PlayStation 3

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Sony Corp will launch a cheaper model of its PlayStation 3 in the United States, hoping to attract more buyers as it goes up against rival game consoles from Microsoft and Nintendo this holiday.


    The company also cut the price of its highest-capacity model by about 17 percent.


    The new version of the PS3 will come with a 40-gigabyte hard drive, cost $400, and go on sale on November 2, said Jack Tretton, president of Sony Computer Entertainment America.
    The price of the 80-gigabyte version will be cut to $500 from $600.

    I still think that PS3 is still $150-$200 too much....they are also taking out the backward compatibility...which means you cant play PS2 games on it....which i think it crap....

    Considering it's the best Blu-Ray player on the market right now and is a great home theater media center, the PS3 is an absolute steal.

    Sony is also dropping the 80GB version with the Motostorm pack in down to $499. That's the better deal, since it is backwards compatible, has all four USB slots and the media card reader.

    Sorry, but paying $500 to play PS2 games is stupid. If you want to play PS2 games, keep playing your PS2. If you want Blu-Ray and PS3 games, even if there aren't many, buy a PS3.
