It's official: The PS3 is going to be the most expensive game console in history.  CNet News is reporting that the PS-3 will have a retail price of $499 with a 20 GB drive, and $599 with a 60 GB drive.  It will also include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and USB interface capability.  It will support up to 7 wireless controllers.  It will feature high definition video up to 1080p, as well as supporting Sony Memory Sticks, Secure Digital, and Compact Flash memory technologies, and the ability to play CDs, DVDs, and Blue-Ray media.

Oh, and it will play all previous PS-1 and PS-2 games.

All in all, Sony thinks that this unit will have so much to offer you that you won't balk at the high price-tag (the base PS-3 will cost nearly twice what Microsoft's XBox-360 costs), and they have reiterated their commitment to have plenty of units available in November.

So, what about it?  Do you still plan on buying one, even at the $500 or $600 price point?  Or is somebody at Sony doing some serious drugs?  Tell us, in the forums!
