    According to Merill Lynch, the Playstation 3 will cost Sony an incredible $900 per unit at launch. The IBM Cell Processor and Blu-ray drive alone account for over 60% of the total. All parts add up to only $800, but if you look closer, a price isn’t listed for the detachable 2.5″ HDD which may account for the remaining amount. In addition, the RSX GPU is priced at an incredibly low $70. Will this be the most expensive gaming console ever made (besides the Neo Geo)?

    I'd this this is a bad estimation. Sony know they cannot price it this high. Maybe a few features will lose out, or maybe some of these like the cell wont cost Sony as much as predicted.
