    That's not $399 US Dollars though. They want €399 which would be about $564 USD at todays exchange rate. I wonder how much it would actuallt cost if they release it here!

    There are some leaked listings from retailers indicating the 40GB PS3 in the US will indeed be $399.99. The 80GB model will reportedly be $499.99.

    Games consoles almost always are marked up in Europe vs. the US.

    As I've predicted ... there probably is not going to be a clear cut winner in this format war.

    Pete, if that is true about the 80gig dropping to $499, I am going to be mighty pissed off: I just picked up a 60gig last week.

    The 40G will be released in the US also on October 28th. I read that the 60G will have a price drop, but the 80G was not mentioned; it would seem logical that the 80G will also have a price drop for the holidays. An announcement is rumored for the 12th.

    20gb is $499 and discontinued... no wireless, full PS2 support
    60gb is $499(was $599) and discontinued.. full PS2 support
    80gb is $599 and comes with 2 controllers and 1 game... Limited PS2 support...
    40gb is $399 and has wireless, only 2usb, no PS2 support...

    Without the extra controller and game, the 80gb model will be dropped to $499.
