Playstation2/Sony
Don't look now, but the price tag for the PS3 could easily be $500.

And gamers will collectively gasp.

Personally, I expected this day would come... and I know that it sucks. Why? Because a price tag that steep will harm the growth of the new consoles. The Xbox 2 is looking to be similarly priced, and Nintendo's "Revolution" they claim will coexist with the Gamecube is looking more and more like the mistakes made with the Sega Saturn "coexisting" with Genesis/32X/SegaCD all over again.

Painful. Also Weekly Musings fodder... when I have more concrete information.
