    I can see it being 24.99, same as GT5P tbh. GT5P has 6 tracks (5 in the JPN orignal before Xmas version.), the offline is not very big, online is not very good, not private lobbies, friends filters, etc etc. I really can't see it being any less then 24.99, that said, I would pay double that for 8 tracks with online private lobbies.

    Don't see the point in making death threats mate btw, Sony, MS whoever, they always shaft their customers (even more so us in the UK), been doing it for years and I can't see that changing anytime soon.

    Come on, Stephen, get a grip - that's a completely ridiculous thing to say, even in jest.

    It's entertainment - ultimately, the market will set the price and nobody is forcing you to pay for it. I'd expect a daft comment like that from a 13 year old newbie, not someone who has been around for years.

    Posting stuff like that is the prime reason that developers avoid fan forums like the plague. Who would want to put their head above the parapet when they'd be routinely exposed to over-the-top reactions from fanboys?

    You're certainly going the right way about making sure people within Sony think twice about posting here, and trust me - six years of biting my tongue over posts like yours has taught me that it's best not to even bother.

    Apologize Foxxy that came from me, this story, don't blame RR for overreacting.
    Actually we were talking through msn relating a french rumour about price of HD = 39.99 Euros
    I said 40 euros with maybe DL packs for a global of 20 euros that gives 60 euros roughly the price of a blue ray brand new...
    I respect Sony same for SL but i find that price scandalous if this comes true.
    If they wanted to make money why did they not port Pure on DVD playable for ps2 ( current best sony console sales), hopefully Pulse will be ( too late?).
    I told RR a psychological price need to be found : what's yours? mine is 20 euros for the 8 tracks if they want to cover a wide range of ps3 owners ( not specially the die hard fans from here) who got internet connexion.
    I know WZ members who already own a ps3 will buy it at any price, i understand them , just to tell Sony i don't own a ps3 and prefer to wait for the 80 Go + DS3 when it will be released in France even it's end of summer, HD will wait.

    Watcha Asayyeah,

    It's a real shame you are not going to play HD from day one, surly with the amount of your life you have poured into this game Sony or SL should buy you one as a thank you!

    I woudl not worry about the 80 version, you can swap disks with ease on the PS3, it takes standrad SATA laptop drives and they even give you details in the manual on how to do this, and it does not effect your warranty.

    Also, the PS3 is a good controller, better weight the the SIXwhateveritscalledAXIS, you can import these though mate, thats what I did with my JPN GT5P last year, the rumble is there but I don't think it's as strong as the old PS2 DS2.

    The 80GB Ps3 plays Ps2 games. So its not just about 20GB more space. And it has 4USB and memorycard reader like the 60GB had i think.

    Fair comment, but none of the EU ps3's had the PS2 hardware, only the software emulation which aint great.

    As for the 4 usb ports, get a cheap little usb hub, this is more tidy anyway as all the ports are on the front and cables end up everywhere, I run a single lead under the ps to a hub tucked out the way to keep my front room setup nice a wife freindly, I mean wire free!

    Also, I have a 60 and 20 gb, the 20 gb is soooooo much quieter then the 60. If you are using the PS3 as a blueray and dvd player too (it's a very good upscaler for thise with HD tv's) then I would recommend the 20 gb.

    I guess you mean 40GB because 60GB and 20GB sounds about the same.

    And yes that is a plus for the 40GB. =)

    Hmmm, a fair price for Wipeout HD on the PSN.

    8 tracks. Well, Pulse was on the PSP and was 12 tracks at $30 USD.

    So I'm willing to bet that HD is $20 USD and add on packs will be about $3 to $5.
