No price? :( Nice to see that these are getting to a decent size now.

Seems like they haven't announced a price yet, but yeah the sizes are getting to a point where it actually might be worth buying one of these. I probably would consider getting one for my PS3, but then again I have a feeling that this 512GB SSD will be super-expensive. Probably 5x more than a HDD equivalentt.

There's absolutely no point in buying this particular SSD for a PS3 since the console can't use SSDs effectively and only has SATA1 onboard. And yes, it will be super expensive, 10-15x more I'd say.

Dunno about that, I've got a WD Scorpio Black 320GB in my PS3, and it says it's SATA2, and it works fine. But yeah, I have a feeling it will be incredibly expensive.

It should work, just default to the lowest speed and so be largely pointless- I think...

If this thing cost $500 then it's useless to me.
