Again, these are educated guesses. Come May 8th Sony will reveal the final price at E3 which should be closer to the magical $499-500 price point most consumers expect to pay for a cutting-edge videogame system. Either that or Sony is going to load the box with extras (coupons, Blue Ray flicks, a second controller, free game, etc.) and try to pass this as a killer bundle. Hey, nobody ever said this hobby was cheap!
