After months of speculation a Sony official has let slip the planned retail price of the PlayStation 3 console, coming worldwide this November.
It’s not a complete answer, as it’s the cost for one territory–Europe. The projected PS3 retail price? €499-599. Depending on other factors–the weak dollar as compared to the Euro, the historically higher prices for game consoles in Europe–the American retail price could well be in the five to six hundred dollar range.
Which is what we’ve been speculating for some time now.
Still, some word is better than no word at all, and for people who want the PlayStation 3 in November I’d advise saving those pennies now.
