We've got much more coming from Sony's Pre-E3 Press Conference all night long...stay tuned...
so, like the 400 dollaz version of the 360, the ps3 premium is going to be 600 bucks...that's kind of what i figured, except i thought it would be almost 1000. these things keep getting more and more expensive...before you know it it'll be like gas, and you have to take out a 2nd mortgage on your home to get some.
