That'd be sweet if it does, but its more that likely the $170 will be in actual terms around $199, but thats still damn cheap!

Nintendo could really hurt Sony if thats the case.

I think most gamers would buy one for a lot more than that, but if it is that cheap it will be all not most. Maybe not at launch but somewhere down the line.
I'm tight, but I can't complain at the price.
