A $500 PlayStation Portable?

We're doubtful that this could burst too many bubbles, but today Atari CEO Bruno Bonnel (who we hope would know better than to shoot his mouth off) predicted that Sony's forthcoming PlayStation Portable could be priced as high as $500. Though it seems hard (and a lot early) to speculate on the price point, Sony — a company that's no stranger to commanding a premium for its well-designed electronics — is one of the companyies (besides maybe Apple) that you actually see pulling off making the PSP successful at a luxurious $500 a pop.  We just recommend when you buy one that you don't carry it at night, or alone, or on the subway. In fact, maybe you should just leave it at home.
