There's a world of difference between some half-assed emulation of a controller using a mouse, and true, native, lightning-fast and razor-sharp mouse support.

I have a SmartJoy Frag (as does Mike, my unindicted co-conspirator). I've used it twice. Shooting with a mouse is fast and accurate. Moving with a keyboard is clumsy and frustrating. You won't see me using k+m anytime soon.

PS3 Losing Support from Developers?

Quote
The industry insider went on to say, “Kutaragi has said, ‘Please develop suitable software for PS3 - this software must not be of the same standard as PS2 software.’ Developing software for the PS3 from scratch will require an initial investment of at least 2 billion yen [US $17.6 million] [not including development costs]. There are not many software companies that can easily afford that kind of money.”

ZakZak article

Quote
One journalist, a veteran of the industry, observes, “The Xbox 360 is selling at 39795 yen [US $350], whereas the PS3 will probably be more expensive. To draw a comparison with PC operating systems, the Xbox 360 is like a low-cost and stable version of Windows, while the PS3 resembles a high quality Macintosh [operating system]. Considering the economic variance within the world market, we may find that console selection depends heavily on geographic location.”

In an aside about the Nintendo Revolution, the journalist remarked, “It will survive on the basis of its originality. I don’t know about [its prospects in] other countries, but it may win alone in Japan.”

"Sony Computer Entertainment president Ken Kutaragi said he expects the PS3 to be capable of running games at a stunning 120fps, according to a report in The Nikkei BP. "

Sony is either going to charge $500 + per system or take an expensive bath for a few years.  They may do both.
I'll buy at $299 or less.

Keep in mind that those are estimates. If those prices hold then getting one at launch should be much easier. :)

Do you mean that it will be easier to wait for price drops?

No, the lines will be alot shorter at EB/Best Buy. Not too many people are going to buy at that price if it verifies. With a $500 price I'm not so sure I would either.

I'm skeptical of those numbers. I don't believe Microsoft is making a $60 profit at launch on the Premium package, much less a $65 profit on the Core (plus the "$40 minus costs" obligatory memory card). I think we'd have seen more aggressive pricing if that were true.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit.   There's no reason to get aggressive with pricing until supply catches up with demand.   Through spring they will sell every console they can make at this price.   They'll have a price cut before PS3 launches, maybe even months before (say, after PS3 announces pricing).

Those numbers also don't reflect the included controller, headset, tv cables, etc., so maybe they are possible. I'll keep an eye out for when iSuppli breaks one down and individually prices the components.

Whoops, didn't notice the lack of bundled accessories.
