Another PlayStation 3 pricing rumor appears

— 10:17 AM on April 28, 2006

This time, Forbes is quoting PlayStation magazine PSM as saying the PS3's final launch price will be $399—right in line with Microsoft's Xbox 360. The magazine adds that the console will be fitted with a 60 GB hard drive, and that it will launch in the first half of November. This new rumored price, while low considering the cost of standalone Blu-ray players, still fits within the sub-$500 range hinted at by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe VP George Foray. Of course, Sony has yet to give an official word on the upcoming console's pricing and release schedule, although the company told Forbes more details would be made available during a press event on May 8.
