Yes sure it IS expensive. I mean 600+ bucks for a console is nothing to laugh at and it's been some time before we've seen any console in that ball park. However when you think about what you are getting is it really that expensive? Current stand alone blu-ray players are in the $800-$1000+ range. With the PS3 you get a blue-ray player plus the console and a number of extras. Granted it all depends on whether you care to play Blu-Ray movies or not, or care for any of the extras like music, video and photo playback all of which the 360 also offers. So what do you think of its price?
