I don't think anyone was saying that the price estimation would be $600, most guesses range from $300-$500.

Sony says a lot of things.

Remember when the PSP was going to kill and destroy the DS?
Remembered when UMDs were the new best thing?

The PS3 and 360 can battle each other over who's breasts look more realistic.
The Wii is all about having fun with them. ~Girl Gamer~

But UMD was the next best thing, but technology rapidly changes.

UMDs were horribly impractical, even when they came out.
There were better ways to get portable media.

I was right with the $249 price tag for the 3DS so its safe to say this will be $399 to $499

@MewtwoEx
Sony has learned from 599 US DOLALRS they cannot get away with that.

They also mentionedi t will be affordable and they will lose money on each unit sold.

I honestly see the wifi model for 300 and the 3G+wifi model for 350.

Still you cant deny as,
Makato from SF would say "Its going to cost a pretty penny"

They have put alot of new tech in it.

You are hoping too much, I am pretty sure this thing wont be cheaper than $399
either version, just wait and see, we all know Sony loves to be the king of expensiveness, why? because they want to charge every single penny they can out of the technology they put in, which is a bad way to run business, they are packing so many things and charging for everyone of them, thats exactly what happened with the PS3 and the PSP, extra stuff in them is cool, but not so cool when they make you pay for it just to get their new gaming system, Why do you think Nintendo doesnt add a CD or DVD player to their consoles? because its so unecessary, anyone can buy a DVD-CD player separatedly for 30 bux at Walmart, ut if they had done so, they probably would had to add extra dollars to the Wii´s price tag, long story short, they dont want to use the available technology that you can get optional else where, if you want to play games then stick to the games.
