as you probably know, today the ps3 was realeased In Japan. With only 100.000 models made it's already sold out. Untill now Sony is still losing profet on the ps3 but according to Sony that won't be for long. On the 17 ps3 will be also released in Amerika. However. We (in Europe) will have to wait untill MARCH to finally get our hands on it.

Now if you look at the price in Tokio and you convert in to Euro in costs 350 Euro. The actual sale price will be arround 600 Euro when it's realeased in Europe.

Edit: It has now (17th November) been released in America and I got some pics:

this is an extra ordinary game since it bairly uses normal controls but the movement sensors.

I think its great. I really do. Everyone tries to shout it down for various reasons, but it IS the greatest console in existance at the moment.

March for Aus as well. Can you believe it? Farking rediculous.

If I say it costs 350 Euro in tokio don't expect it to be so cheap here. The price will be far and far higher in Europe and America

I cannot afford £500 its not worth that price to be honest. I will wait for the price to fall or buy a XBox 360. I need to save for college espically as Im going Berlin with my performance class.

X Box is hated here.An orignal Game disc is difficult to find.Let alone piracy.

PS2 here are too confided to Arenas and Game parlours.

PC games are cheap and more.half dollar each.

i agree with everyone else who posted - im gonna wait for the price to drop before buying it, anyway i live in england so i have a long wait. I think they will have problems with the ps3, simply because its very expensive, well, it is for people who dont have money printing machines. Youll also need a HD-TV to get the best out of it, and that could be up to £10,000 depending on what make and size. Add into this the price of the games (£50 in england, $60 in america) and i cant see a massive fanbase.

personally i think pc and xbox 360 will cruise ahead in the next gen race, and this is coming from someone who despises both of them. Its a shame, but all great companies fall from grace.

Tec 9,PC has way better graphiocs than a PS3 I think.You just need the money to buy a great graphics card and really fast processer and stuff.I'm goin to buy the PS3.I'm gonna wait til' the price drops though.XBox-360 may have downloadable episodes for GTA 4 but I can probably just watch the video on youtube or something.Plus Playstation always has a better game selection.

BTW,on November 17 ATOS(Attack of the show)on G4TV will be giving 3 hours of full coverage on the PS3 launch day.They'll be at that launch place.You guys should watch it,it looks awesome.

I wanted to buy a PS2 2 weeks ago. But since PS3 is gonna be so expensive I desided I'l just wait till March.

At school I ask'd about 20 people, amazingly only 4 wanted a ps3. They where positive Xbox 360 had better graphics and games.

Jace, your people seem more like my people. And Nate10, I stayed up until midnight on November 22, 2005 watching the Xbox 360 launch on G4. I'm not doing that shit again for a while. All that was just a bunch of previews and for the last thirty minutes, five reviews. Pretty moderate, except for COD2, which got a five out of five.

You probably guest it im getting a ps3 but in March cos i live in the Uk.

Tommy Montana the price in England will be

60 GB - £435

20 GB - £385

With the 60 gp and 20 gb you basically are getting the basic stuff ie the consol, the controller, memory stick etc.

I gotta admit the ps3 is far too expensive but i will still be getting it the first week it comes out. I would get it for the first day but it usually is sold out.

IMO XBox is going to win the race for about the first year when the ps3 release is out but once companies start using more disc space blue ray will be valuable and the x box will have to create multiple gaming discs which as far as i know will increase the price the same as ps3. So eventually i think ps3 will win
