The latest gossip has been quite potent regarding the PS3 launch and availability. Word on the street has it that we should expect two different version of the PlayStation 3: a $399 edition and a whopping $599 megaversion. Unlike the Xbox 360 implementation of this, an included hard drive is not mentioned. Instead, the major difference is said to be between their ability to play Blu-ray movies and not.

Of course, this is only speculation after all. I'd take this with a grain of salt until we hear something official.
