Rumours are flying around about the final price of the PS3
. The real price will not be made public until the 8th of May, but according to an article
at Theinquirer.net, the retail price will be $399
for the console containing a 60 gigabyte hard drive. This might strike some as a little on the expensive side, but its certainly a better price than the 499 euros suggested by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe George Fornay only just recently.
The PlayStation 3
is the successor to the PlayStation 2 and will mainly compete against the Nintendo Revolution and Xbox 360. It will be backwards compatible with earlier PS1 and PS2 games.
