    Basically, they've promised far more than they can deliver at a reasonable price, to build this super computer they're on about is going to be extremely costly.

    i have another theory - it could be Sony trying to get Microsoft to set a higher price for the X360 to reduce its uptake. i'd be very shocked if MS fell for that kinda tactic though...

    no doubt that the PS3 will not be cheap to manufacture as it does use a lot of high technology items, so i'm thinking it'll be pushed not only as a gaming machine to get the techy people on board rather than just the gaming crew...

    PS3 to get 2x Blu-Ray drive?

    rumours suggest...
    X360 UK launch: 25 Nov
    Price: £299

    Doesn't suprise me, and the PS3 will be closer to £399, probably even more on launch too!

    PS3 will (supposedly) be £299 at launch (and $299 GRRRRR) and sony will be taking a loss on each sold but the sale of games is meant to make up for this.

    That's been the way for all consoles for ages. With the exception of Nintendo apparently. You make the cash on the software.
