Bluetooth wireless controllers for up to 7 of them. Then you could also use the PSP as an 8th controller from what I've read.Originally Posted by adamwwe

I don't know why everyone is so concerned at the price...Sony isn't stupid...And they remember about their ps2-all-in-one-mega-$$.....I doubt it will be $400
Oh...and doesn't anyone remember the ps2 us launch? And the $5000 ebay ps2's?

Does this inlcude a burner in the PS3? I remember they said it was capable of recording you're tv shows and stuff. Perhaps it's a rumour because the specs weren't mentioned of a burner.
According to rumor, there are suppose to be two versions of the PS3 kinda like it was for the PSX. One version with the basics, and one version with all the bells and whistle's. Didn't hear anything about a burner. Time will tell of course.Originally Posted by tthnow
hope they are only rumors cause at e3 they didn't say anithing about two versions of ps3 . . .Originally Posted by Radiskull
niceLast week, the Mainichi Daily News quoted Sony Computer Entertainment officials as saying the PlayStation 3 would be priced at under 50,000 yen ($465.58). Now it appears that the console may be even cheaper when it goes on sale next year.
Today, Japanese Web site Impress PC Watch reported that SCE has told its business partners that the PS3 will be under 40,000 yen ($370) at launch. The news has spurred speculation that the company might launch the machine with the same price it set for the PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Both machines were priced at 39,800 yen ($368) when they launched in 1994 and 2000, respectively.
Sony's PS3 will be competing with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Nintendo's Revolution in the next-generation console wars. When it launched in Japan in 2002, Microsoft's current-generation Xbox was priced at 34,800 yen ($322). The company has been shaving down the console's cost since then, and it currently sells at 17,640 yen ($163).
Nintendo's GameCube made its debut in 2001 at 25,000 yen ($231)--the lowest launch price of the three current-generation home consoles. The GameCube continues to be the lowest priced console on the market, currently marked down to 14,000 yen ($130). Nintendo has never priced any of its past consoles higher than 25,000 yen at launch, which could well be the same case for the Revolution. During E3, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that he hopes to "keep the Revolution at a price range that anyone can reach out for, and nothing as high as 50,000 yen ($463)."
PlayStation fans rejoice! I know a lot of you weren't annoyed about how good the thing is, but how it costed. Hopefully, no worries on that one. This thing packs more punch than the computer you are reading this on, and it's a quarter (well, for me) of the price.
"Japanese technology website PC Watch has hinted at a possible price point for the PlayStation 3. As part of an interview feature with Sony Computer Entertainment head Ken Kutaragi, the site remarks that SCE has been telling its partners to expect the PS3 to arrive at below the 40,000 yen mark when it debuts in Japan in Spring of 2006. The original PlayStation and the PlayStation 2 were both originally released to Japan with a price tag of 39,800 yen." ($368)
sure you beat me to it but i think you should not have started a new thread lol
