The PlayStation 3 launch window software lineup will include 20 titles that expected to retail under $60. The PS3 SIXAXIS wireless controller will sell for $49.99 and soon after launch the company will release a Blu-ray Disc remote control that will sell for $24.99. The first 500,000 PS3 will come packed with a Blu-ray Disc movie, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," starring Will Farrell.

There will also be a special memory card adapter that will let you transfer game saves from PSO and PS2 memory cards onto the HDD of the PS3 and it will sell for $14.99.

Sony also reiterated that access to its online network and services will be free and there won't be an equivalent of Xbox Live Gold membership to play multiplayer games, although some special games (ex:MMOGs) may require additional fees.

The PlayStation Network will use an interface similar to that of the PlayStation Portable, called Xross Media Bar and it will be broken into three categories: Gaming; Entertainment and Network/Web Connectivity. The user experience will be very similar to Xbox Live; users will create a single id called PlayStation profile that will let them communicate with other PlayStation Network users as well as acquire content from the PlayStation Store, a space similar to the Xbox Live Marketplace. Downloadable first party games will cost less than $15 at launch. More content will be added on a regular basis.
