I had an Atari 2600 when they first came out, that cost $100 23 years ago, but this is starting to get ridiculous. These gaming systems now cost so much, not every kid in the block can have one. Nintendo, the original, came out and it was so popular, because it was affordable. It will take a few years before PS3 capitalizes the market. It will need to come down a couple hundred bucks before we start seeing it in every living room. That's the only way they'll be able to monopolize the market. Besides that, only the rich can afford it, and they're rich because they don't stay at home playing video games. Besides the rich children in society, the PS3 will only make in household in the form of a dream.
