It looks like the PS3 may be priced between 500-750 bucks. 500 is understandable, given the cost of development, but 750 would be marketing suicide.

If the price were based on the costs of development it would be even more than that. All of these companies take a loss on the platforms and hope for profits from the games.

Depending on the capabilities, I might consider it.

I'd just as soon spend $750 every few years on a kick ass console gaming system as spend several thousand every few years to keep up with PC gaming.

Of course, I would expect pretty good things from the console, not to mention PC like titles.

Only thing I have against consoles is the inablity to play games w/ keyboard & mouse.

It's the game developers who have limited this ability - not the console developers.
