Sony Playstation Network

At a press event yesterday, Sony demonstrated some facets of online support for its upcoming Playstation 3 console, Reuters reports. The Playstation Network will be a free service with an interface similar to Sony's PSP handheld, only now with expanded functionality such as chat, storing photos and video, greater multiplayer capabilites, and a download area called the Playstation Store. Gamers will be able to buy music, videos, extra game content and more. Some complete games (mainly older Playstation titles) will be downloadable for $15 or less. A new revelation was that to showcase the PS3's Blu-Ray movie support, Sony will be bundling the first 500,000 PS3s with copies of "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby." A $499 model will come with a 20GB hard drive, whereas the $599 model will include a 60GB drive, WiFi, and slots for Memory Sticks, SD cards, and CompactFlash cards.

[Updated for games and accessories] According to Pocket-lint, an extra Sixaxis gamepad (the wireless controller included with the PS3) will cost $50, and a TV-style remote for movies will cost $25. An official HDMI cable will also be priced at $50. There should be 21 game titles at the November 17th launch, with an average price point of $60.
