XBox 360 Core: $299
XBox 360 Premium: $399
PS3 Basic: $499
PS3 Premium: $599
Wii: No price announced, but it's been promised to be no more than $250
From what I understand, all 3 consoles are to be sold at a loss. With estimates for the components in the PS3 being so high (the blu-ray drive apparently sells for $1000) I doubt they'll be competing with the 360 on price anytime soon.
