    i have seen many price comparisions between the nexgen consoles, this one seems not from a fanboy.



    PS3 (20 GB Version) Price - $499.99 - (This price was dropped in Japan to $427 but no announcements were made about the US version)
    Average Game Price: Add $59.99 for one game.
    Backwards Compatible: Yes (PS1 and PS2). Add 1500 yen ($12) for memory card adaptor.
    Hard Drive: Yes, (20GB) hard drive.
    DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray Playback: DVD and Blu-Ray playback out of the box. No HD-DVD playback.
    Controller: One Wireless Controller with built-in charger. Add 5000 yen ($42) for additional wireless controller.
    TV Cables: Not known. Probably the standard Multi-out AV cable.
    Internet Connection: 802.11b/g wireless connection
    Headset: No. Let's say it's the same price as the 360 wired headset. Add $19.99.
    Internet Service: All free out of the box. We'll see how good it is.
    Highest Resolution Available: 1080p (Of course, you have to get new cables)

    High Price: $633.97 (before taxes)
    Includes 1 game, backwards compatibility, 20GB Hard Drive, 2 wireless rechargeable controllers, 1 wired headset, wireless internet and DVD/Blu-Ray playback.

    Low Price: $579.97 (before taxes)
    Includes 1 game, backwards compatibility, 20GB Hard Drive, 1 wireless rechargeable controller, 1 wired headset, wireless internet and DVD/Blu-Ray playback.

    ---------------------------------
    Xbox 360 Premium Console: $399.99
    Average Game Price: Add $59.99 for one game.
    Backwards Compatible: Yes (Most Xbox games)
    Hard Drive: Yes, (20GB) hard drive.
    DVD/HD/Blu-Ray Playback: DVD playback out of the box. No Blu-Ray playback. Add $199.99 to play HD-DVD movies
    Controller: One Wireless Controller. Add $49.99 for one additional wireless controller and add $39.98 (2x$19.99) for two plug and play chargers.
    TV Cables: one HD AV cable (I think this is a component cable. This is not HDMI.)
    Internet Connection: Ethernet network cable. Add $99.99 for a wireless adapter
    Headset: One Wired Xbox Live Headset
    Internet Service: Xbox Live Silver Service. Downloads available but you can't play other people online. I'm not going to add the Xbox Gold price because I have no idea what the PS3 online environment is like.
    Highest Resolution Available: 1080p according to Microsoft. Of course, you have to get new cables.

    High Price: $849.93 (before taxes)
    Includes 1 game, backwards compatibility, 20GB Hard Drive, 2 wireless rechargeable controllers, 1 wired headset, wireless internet and DVD/HD-DVD playback.

    Low Price: $479.97 (before taxes)
    Includes 1 game, backwards compatibility, 20GB Hard Drive, 1 wireless rechargeable controller, 1 wired headset, wired internet and DVD playback.
