They say the PS3 will sell for under $500 so most likely it will be over $400 so buying it at launch may be out for me. The XBox360 MS has said they designed to earn a profit and think the price will be like its name $360 which is price I will pay. Sony may end up taking a bigger loss this time around than MS with all its flashy tech especially if it launches at $499. That to me equals death no mather how much more powerful your system is. But hey I said that about the PSP.

50,000 Yen ($469) in Japan. If you add the 35% mark up for the US market (as per PSP pricing i.e $190 vs $249) the PS3 will cost us over $600. At that price the PS3 is doomed!

That's not a valid comparision. The PSP markup came because Sony refused to sell the standard edition here in the states and instead opted for the value bundle. Typically, electronics are more expensive in Japan than the US. I think the PS3 will go for $400 at release.

I disagree. There are no PS2 only games I want. However I wanted quite a few Xbox only games. I also disagree that "majority of good developers" are Japanese. Not everyone is into anime pr0n games with blue eyed asian chicks with DDD boobs.

Didn't Sony or SE confirm that there will be no FFVII remake for the PS3? Since no other console brand was mentioned MS should take this opportunity to make a very generous offer for a FFVII remake on the Xbox 360.

Good for you. The majority of gamers however don't see it your way. And so far there's only been 2 xbox games I've wanted that haven't managed to make it to PC [yet]. Besides, it's not like American games are the second coming either, oh joy, another mindless Shooter/Warcraft ripoff. Yay...not.

They also confirmed a few years back that they weren't working on anything FFVII related [back when the remake rumours were flying high]. Now look at them, 5 FFVII games plus a movie. I don't trust press releases. They're simply for the NOW, they never address the future.

As for FFVII on Xbox, I highly doubt it. Xbox would need to sell really well in Japan for that to become a possibilty. Of FFVII's 8 million sales [9.3 million shipped], 3.8 of that was in Japan. I doubt SE would cut out almost half their userbase like that.

Gee, I'm sure upset I don't follow the "majority" of gamers. LOL!

The majority of Americans think rap artists have talent too.

You don't want God of War?

I agree with you there except for that game. All the PS2 only titles I just weren't interested in until I saw that one.

Not that it's worth getting a PS2 for, but I'm sure hoping it makes it to PSP.
