Pre E3 - Sony Press Conference - General News | @ 04:28 PM MDT | By Zidane
The Sony press conference begins in about a half hour. You can check out the stream at Gamespot's E3 Section. More info on this coming soon!

Also, I've opened an E3 sub-forum. Forum member Slim Trashman has already started a topic for the Sony press conference. Check that out here.

EDIT: My friend Cyrix was kind enough to jot down all of the important details of Sony's press conference. The notes include information about the overall of Sony's plans for the future, the new Playstation online network, first looks at first and third party games, the hard drive, new controller, and of course the price... ohh, the dreaded price. Check out this awesome read here.

Thanks to Cyrix, and everybody who discussed this in the forums with us as it happened. We'll also be covering Nintendo and Microsoft's press conferences.

It will be available in two versions: one with a 60GB hard drive, and one with 20GB. It will launch in the US on November 17 for $499 ($549 CDN) for the 20GB version and $599 ($659 CDN) for the 60GB one. The machine will launch in Japan on November 11 with the 20GB version fetching 59,800 yen, and the 60GB one bearing an "open price," which means retailers will set the price themselves. Europe and Australia will also get the mahcine on November 17, with the 20GB version running for 499 euros, and the 60GB configuration going for 599 euros.

Thats awesome news! Im a little worried about the price, it will probably end up being $1000 here in New Zealand. But still great to hear about it!

No DJ-Prime....

The 60 gig will not have an "open price." There is a finalized price for all launch areas. And all of this information was posted allready.
