$600 for a state-of-the-art video game system and a Blu-Ray DVD player is ridiculous. The Blu-Ray players alone are selling for almost $1000 each. Sony plans on making it up through software sales assuming they can be dominant in this generation of video games. I'm glad I just reserved mine early, and said "F*CK the lines!"
You must not be in a business related environment. Do you know how much it costs to make one of those? Dirt cheap. I bet they marked them up 25%-40% of what they actually cost to make one.
The price can't be compared to what a blue-ray costs retail. It's all manufacuturing cost and what the consumer (that's you) is willing to pay for it.
Anwho, I'll look into it more.
