    I doubt wether it'll get that cheap in 3 years time no console becomes that cheap in that amount of time.
    The ps2 dropped £200 over the 6 years of its life in the UK althouh the PS3 might dropper quicker because that is a big big price

    Agreed... I preordered my Wii for £179? PS3 is £549? Now i aint no fanboy.. i had both a PS2 and a Gamecube.. and the only thing I hate about PS3 is the price.. but OVER 3 times the price of the Wii, makes the price of the PS3:crazy:

    PS3 might have the most advanced technology and might be great but "money talks" and a lot of people aren't willing to spend that much money on a console

    I think it's well worth the price that you pay. I'm not buying it for the power, or because I think it's better than the Wii or 360, it's because of the exclusive games and next-gen gameplay. I'm also buying the Wii because of the unique gameplay and exclusive titles.

    Yay Wii and PS3!

    Yeah, the PS3 has all the hi-tech stuff like 60gig hard drive and blue ray dvd's and games and in Hi-def but i don't care $1000 is way too much, thats what you spend on a computer and it would be better than the PS3, thats why the Wii is the best choice :)

    Pfft, PS3 is like able to do all those queer stuff, everything except GAMING! Isnt that why buy consoles? So we can play games? Not so we can watch Blue Ray movies and shiznit, we buy consoles so we can play GAMES lke we have never played them before, i dont think PS3 should even be categorised as a console

    The Blu-Ray player in the PS3 is meant especially for the games; the games are now much more graphically advanced and longer as ever before. The Blu-Ray disks that the games are on hold around 40GB, so there's no need for compression which makes graphics ugly. The controller also makes games better as it has a tilt sensor (before you flame, you need to know that Sony patented this idea in 1999).

    I'm not against the Wii at all, I'm buying one on launch day, but you guys really don't know much about the PS3 at all...

    And you dont seem to know much about Gameplay LoP, Graphics IMO today is actually Crap, I liked the Old 2-d Games alot more than 3-d games today, For Example the Mario Games I liked the really old ones but they new 3-d ones are actually quite crap. No offense I still play them.
