Bang & Olufsen have updated their BeoSound 2 portable media player with the BeoSound 6. The Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 6 has 4 Gb of memory and supports AAC, MP3 and WMA formats. The BeoSound has a 1.8 inch color screen and comes with a leather case and Bang & Olufsen’s popular A8 headphones for about $600.

Sony has announced some changes in PS3 prices! The 80GB model now costs $499, instead of $599. The lower-end model with a 60GB drive was for $499. So the new 40GB one will debut on November 2 for $399. The new 40GB one won’t be able to play games made for the PlayStation 2. The 40GB model has been much anticipated after Sony announced it for Japan and Europe. So the PS3 is cheaper but not the cheapest.

The Xbox 360 costs $350 and Nintendo’s Wii is $250. Sony has sold 5 million PlayStation 3s since they went on sale in November last year.
