    i really dont think it should be above $300, it shouldnt even be $300, it should be under even though that wont happen, but if it is $300, people will just look at it and go "why dont i just get a ps3?" it really doesnt make sense to make it cost more then the ps3, it wouldnt sell very well in my opinion

    Honestly, price would be a big factor. 3DS is already taking up a large sum of my already mostly dedicated income. I won't be buying this unless they can wow me with a few titles that I would actually want, or if it's hacked reaaally early.

    "From the very beginning of the project -- since 2008 -- pricing was one of the considerations that we had. Hopefully when we announce the price, people will see the proper value." "It's not going to be $599." [/p]

    Sony has stated that the NGP will not cost $599 and hopes people will the see the proper value when pricing is announced.​

    It's probably $598 then... [​IMG] I keed.

    But anyway, hopefully it goes down below $400. That's my limit right there. Though $350 would be a reasonable price.

    It will most likely going to be priced at $300-$350.

    I'll laugh if they're like, "It's not going to be $599 USD like we said, it's going to be $699!"

    Here's something worse

    [​IMG]

    Pioneer Laseractive

    $970 at launch + $600 each for the additional gaming add-ons for Genesis/Megadrive and PC engine/Turbographx 16 + $350 if you want karaoke

    You do the math

    Difference is, 3DO and LaserActive both essentially failed on the market.

    As for the PSP2 price......well, Sony doesn't know the meaning of the word "value". It WILL be overpriced.

    400$ minimum for the NGP is my guess. For all of the stuff in it, 300 would be low for anybody. Then you have to tack on money just because it says Sony on the front. I wouldn't be surprised at all if it hit 500.
