PS3 Pack-In Details Revealed

In the gaming world, few events have been anticipated like the launch of the PlayStation 3. Aside from wondering if Sony's behemoth console is as good as they'd have to believe, gamers are probably also wondering what, exactly, they'll be receiving in their packages and how many body parts they should have ready to pay for accessories. Well, wonder no more; Sony has informed us as to exactly what will be included in the box and how much a new controller/game/memory card adapter will run you guys.

Those who purchase a PS3 (the box contents are the same across both versions) will receive the following items:

  • 1 PS3 (duh)
  • 1 SIXAXIS Controller (also duh)
  • AC Cable (no external power brick though, which is a good thing)
  • 1 USB-mini cable (for charging the SIXAXIS)
  • 1 Ethernet cable
  • 1 Multi-AV cable with composite connectors
  • Those fortunate enough to get one of the first 500,000 PS3s will also receive a Blu-ray copy of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (oh goody), almost a full month ahead of its retail release. Finally, the prices for PS3 accessories are as follows:

  • Games: $59.99 MSRP
  • SIXAXIS Controller: $49.99
  • Memory Card Adapter: $14.99
  • Blu-ray Remote: $24.99
  • Start saving those pennies, folks; November is almost here.
