XBox 360 = $299 to $399 Well, some say this will vary, because its speculated that a stripped down version of the XBox will be launched as well (one with out an HD). These numbers have been kicked around for some time by many web sites. Revolution = $199 to $299 Nintendo stated that the Rev will be 2 to 3 times more powerful than current gen systems. I don't think it should cost more than $300. I would go as far as saying that Nintendo will launch at $249 for the Revolution. PS3 = $499 to $599 OK, calm down, I will explain. This may possibly be the 1st Blu Ray DVD player in the US market, it has 1/2 gig memory and plays almost every Playstation game created since the 90s. Also: http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/05/18/news_6125423.html I think the PS3 will be the most expensive next gen console. And to be honest the specs alone do justify the price. However, there is NO way I am spending that amount of money on a game system. I would have to sell ALL of my current hardware (XBox, Gamecube, PS2 Slim, DS & PSP) to get it. I don't see myself buying the PS3 at launch. IF the PS3 games are as wonderful as Sony wants me to believe (Killzone works exactly like they showed it - no, better) then I will give some serious thought. But otherwise, it will be a wait and see, followed by a price drop. Now, the games. EGM has an interesting article in its current issue. Stating that EA had trouble meeting demand for a special edition of Madden. Also, Doom 3 special edition sold really well. The special editions cost $60. EGM stated that this told publishers and developers gamers are willing to pay a bit more for games. I would not be surprised if launch titles go for $59.99 maybe even $69.99. I see an increase in the price of games. What are your thoughts? Feel free to add/correct where you see fit. And, remember this is all speculation.
