So...PS3 is nowww...drum roll pleeease...$299. I honestly don't know what to say about that except that it's about time. The Wii and 360 can still be purchased for less.
"The most important figures are 2...9...& 9. In case you haven't figured out what that figure means, that's the price. This version of Playstation 3 will be available at €299, $299 in the United States, and ¥29,980 in Japan..."-Spokesperson-
Actually the most important thing you didn't figure was that we, the consumers, are not stupid. It's probably no coincidence that the further from the Japan it is the higher the price, but I'm still paying the same price in NY as in Cali. Joke's on the left coast and the Europeans I guess...whatever
