The “media-centric” PlayStation 3 will feature capabilities of consumer electronics devices and will be more focused on digital media content playback, rather than on gaming. Based on claims reportedly made by executives of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., PC Watch web-site reports that the PlayStation 3 “media-centric”-edition will feature anti-vibration mechanism on the Blu-ray disc drive, 512MB XDR memory, more advanced power supply unit and two HDMI connectors to divide audio and video data.The machine will have a design that matches other consumer electronics products and will be significantly more expensive than the PS3. Japanese media report a price of somewhere between $1,680 and $2,520.
Sony Multimedia-oriented PS3... priced at $2,500?
