Hell yes, launch would have been so much better with the current price/line up.

Needs at least one great exclusive. Aaaand I need an HDTV. But damn, it's still pretty tempting. If only it had launched at this price...

Nope, I'll wait for the price to hit the current PS2 price before biting on Sony's newest 'wondermachine', since it has so much shit I won't use on it.

Maybe, but only because my PS2 is about to die and there are still PS2 games I want to play. Which is a terrible reason to buy one, yet here we are.

I paid $500 for mine(and two games), so yes.

No, because I dont have enough time for games this next year anyway:

GTA IV
Halo 3
Unreal 3
SSBB

Thats gonna take me a while, since im sure there will be a ton of out-of-the-blue good games.

I chose "other" - I'd pay $500 for one if there were some AAA exclusive games to play... so until that time I'm a "no"

Hmm..

$500 for a PS3 and a blu ray player all in one.. I could catch up on all the PS2 titles I missed (didn't own a PS2 past 2003.. did play GOW and GOW2, but missed out on Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, the Final Fantasy games, the Kingdom Hearts series, etc).. could play my PS One games again.. and be able to play Lair, Heavy Rain, Heavenly Sword, Resistance, Motorstorm, LittleBig World, Eight Days, and the system selling Afrika..

..eh, I dunno. I probably would.

The PS3 library is lacking, but I'd buy one once there are some games worth playing (that aren't multi-platform).

$500 is a good deal for a Blu-Ray player / video game console.

If I had an HDTV I would, but until I can afford both it aint happening.

No. Would at least have to be the same price as the 360, but even then I couldn't justify it as the 360 has so many more games to play.

All the "extras" the PS3 has I really could care less about.

I had this same thought until I was able to find a decent 19" LCD HDTV for about $230 after tax with Composite, HDMI, and VGA ports. But I'm sticking to my rule that I won't spend more than 300 bucks on a console. I own a 360 but through trade-in deals it only costs me about 250 bucks cash to get it.

$500 for a PS3, plus the Blu Rays, and maybe an extra controller (+ tax). I just wish I could buy it from Ron Popeil at that price. I'll have one by September.

I was unwilling to pay $500 when it launched, and with the library it built up of 0 interesting games, I remain unwilling.

I'm saving for a decent HDTV first, then a PS3. I'll wait until it hits the $300 mark.

Would I pay $500 for it? No. Would I buy it when it's $500 if I can find a good coupon, get free Blu-Rays, some other sort of promo, and can still get ~$100 for my almost-new PS2? Tempting.

So really, my answer is a combination of all the poll options. Retail price is a bit much as yet, especially when it would be used more for PS2 games that will take me a long time to get through than for PS3 games over the next 6 months, at the least.

If there was any game on the system or in the forseeable future that interested be beyond a remake of a last gen game then I mighr consider it. As of now, for the next year unless something megaton and exclusive for the PS3 gets announced, there's no reason for me to own one--despite my delusional ramblings about buying one last week. ;)

Yes, $500 is what it should have been at launch IMO (at max). $500 is definitely worth it.

I bit at launch and haven't regretted it. Now, $500 for the 60gb system + 5 blu-ray movies + a free controller, and seeing the long list of amazing exclusives set to hit this Fall? It's a steal imo.

I bought mine at launch, $500 is an awesome price and now I wish I waited to save $100. So hell yes is your answer.

No, until a few really good games hit it's still going to be an expensive paperweight. However at $500 I might consider buying one early next year.

I'm still not convinced... while the price is better, the games aren't there yet. Sure it'll get better within the next year or so but until then I'm going to hold out.

I'm tempted to, but I'm not sure why. I looked at the list of games available and saw 1, maybe 2 games that I'd be interested in. I do believe there will be a lot of good games down the line, but logically the price would only go down further as time progresses.

I think part of me just sees a price drop and wants to bite - I'm weird like that. That, and I haven't bought an expensive toy lately. :)
