PS3 to retail at $499?

PS3Gamers all around the globe have been anticipating every little bit of information regarding Sony’s much-awaited PlayStation 3 next-generation console. Here’s a little info that may (or definitely may not) douse the interest of many – PS3 may cost about $499.

This rumor has been circulating around after Californian developers supposedly leaked the said figure. According to them, SCEA (Sony Computers America) publishers that are continously involved in the console’s development has been informed that the price is final (argh, no amount of haggling will work).

Although the rumor is still, well, a rumor (with emphasis to the word “rumor”), it is almost good enough to be taken as a fact. Considering all the hype about it being a far superior machine than, let’s say, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 that was pegged as much as $399, it is then quite logical for it to be a dollar under $500 (you are free to disagree, and no, I’m not in Sony’s payroll).

Besides, consumers have long been spoon-fed with the expectation that PS3’s price will only be equal to the amount of hype it has undergone. PlayStation development lead Ken Kutaragi, in a press conference staged in Tokyo, even stated that “I’m not going to reveal its(PS3) price, I’m going to only say that it’ll be expensive”.
