“Our line-up of PS3 games that will be available through the holidays is unprecedented in terms of volume, variety and innovation, surpassing any previous competitive launch catalog and even our own original offerings for other PlayStation platforms,” said Kaz Hirai, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America.  “We are pioneering a new era of true next-generation gaming through such titles as Resistance: Fall of Man, a visually arresting game that takes advantage of the large storage capacity and exceptional visual clarity offered by Blu-ray Disc; and NBA 07, running at full 1080p for the highest resolution image possible, creating hyper-realistic characters and gameplay never seen before.”

As if simply being able find a PlayStation 3 at launch wasn't incentive enough, Sony announced that packed-in with the first half million PS3 systems shipped in North America will be Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, starring Will Farrell. This puts a copy of the movie into PlayStation 3-owners hands almost a month before the Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby stand-alone street date of December 12, 2006

Haha, so $500 for the bare bones console, then another $180 to pick up three good games. Sorry Sony but with that much money I could buy a used car.

I am pretty sure there is no such thing as a bare-bones PS3. The items included may be less, like the smaller hard drive, but other than that they are pretty much identical. This is not like Microsoft with how they sold one with a hard drive and the other without.

Or build a fucking computer for christssakes.. And since everyone already has one, that $$ would make for an awesome upgrade for any system built in the last 5 years.. yes, you heard right, 5 years.. You only need a 2GHZ P4 to be able to upgrade the video card with out a severe performance hit.
