If you want to be one of the first to get one of the new Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles when they’re available you better hope one of your relatives was the winner of the $365 million Powerball jackpot. Merrill Lynch is reporting Sony will retail the PlayStation 3 for $900, with the price dropping to a more reasonable $320 after THREE years. What is Sony thinking? You can buy a nice, fully-functioning PC for less.

The good news: Looks like the scheduled spring launch could be delayed six to 12 months, giving would-be buyers more time to scrape together the needed cash.
