PlayStation 3: The Expensive Behemoth

For those who missed it, and for those who like their money: Sony announced its new PlayStation 3 console will be slightly less expensive than selling your soul to Satan, but only slightly. The PlayStation 3 will cost $499 for a model with a 20-gigabyte hard drive and $599 for a 60-gigabyte drive.

The good news is that everything shown for the PlayStation 3 seems to be hovering at just about super-awesome plus one. Titles such as Final Fantasy XIII, Grand Theft Auto 4, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Resistance: Fall of Man bode very well for Sony and its new offering. And hey, good luck finding a Blu-Ray player for cheaper than what Sony's offering...

Stare in awe:
