PS3 Launch details revealed
According to this press release from Sony, the PS3 will be launched on the market on November 17th with a price tag of $499 USD for the 20GB version and $599 USD for the 60GB one. A bit pricy you might think, but considering that the PS3 has an HD player, and Microsoft's Xbox 360 doesn't, it stands to reason.
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced today that it would launch PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3) in "Clear Black" in North America on November 17, 2006, as part of a worldwide simultaneous launch. PS3 is the most advanced computer system that serves as a platform to enjoy next generation computer entertainment content in the home, realized through the combination of Cell and RSX(TM) processors, in addition to the playability of a vast catalog of PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 software titles.
