No commentary from me here. Just the facts.
I... see. And the point to the $500 unit is? I mean, it lacks a lot of the key features and it only knocks $100 off the price? While I have no intention of getting a PS3, it's clear I'd kick in the extra $100 for the "full" machine.
So Sony is giving a clear demonstration on how to shove one's head up one's collective ass?
...no Memory Card slot? What the hell?!
Now, I can't pretend to know how much space a PS3 game save will take up. But I know I'm not one to simply erase game data. I like to keep my finished games. I don't want to be stuck with a finite amount of memory. After all, that's the point of Memory Cards.
Then again, I honestly don't believe that ANY video game system is worth that much money. I'll be waiting for a couple price drops before I buy one, and by then the differences probably won't be an issue because I'll go for the higher end model.
As for the HD thing, I don't really give a fudge. I don't see myself owning an HD TV in the near future.
Raise all flags on the Bullshit Battleship!! Too bad you need HDMI to watch BluRay movies in HD thanks to the copy protection. So I guess there is a difference in functionality, huh? Up yours Sony. Wiered knockoff controllers, no wifi, and by far most importantly of all memory card slots make your $500 P$3 close to worthless. Dont keep trying to pull the wool over our eyes like it seems you love to do. Dont let the competition kick you in the ass on your way out.
And oh yeah, while Im ranting about Sony; where the hell are my PS2 quality PSP games? I was promised a port of GT4... funny how thats been missing for awhile isnt it?
I'm a bit late in this PS3/360/Wii discussion but please enlighten me: Why is this thing worth half a grand???
All of a sudden I feel like getting the Nintendo a whole lot more...
Well then it's a no-brainer for me.
Get the $600 one
It'll be $1000AUD Soundy my man.
We already got some paperwork at Myer about it and 'pre-pre-order' info. Which basically is too tell customers too wait. Had a few people ask about it already as well.
for the price of a ps3 you could the wii, 3 games and an extra controller!!
BluRay disc drive. Sony is trying to use the P$3 to push their own HD movie format. All P$3 games will be on BluRay discs.
Yeah, I still would like to get a PS3(eventually). But even for me, this is freakin' retarded.
They're also claiming that their Cell processor is some kind of supercomputer. They made very similar claims about the PS2 around five years ago.
Yeah, guess I'm heading towards the Wii system when it comes out and wait until the PS3 drops a couple of hundred dollars.
the more i read about the ps3 the more i think they're shooting themselves in the foot, i mean, it'll probably be aroung £500 in the uk, that's a lot of money for a games console...
i'm going for a wii. (chortle)
I'll get it if only because the majority of RPGs will end up on it. But if Nippon Ichi, Media Vision, Konami and Square Enix went multi platform with Makai, Wild Arms, Suikoden and Final Fantasy / the rest respectively, then I'd spring for a Wii myself. It so far seems to be the most fun console, which to me is the whole point.
If the differences are indeed true, it does render the $500 unit essentially pointless (really, who will take that much less functionality to save $100 when they already have to spend so much anyway). As I already have a 360, it's a no brainer for me to just buy a Wii at the end of this year and wait for Sony to lower the PS3 price to something that isn't so ridiculous (and I realize that could be one damn long wait).
Wii60 is the only way to go this generation. F Sony
That trailer for MGS4, the real reason Snake put a gun in his mouth? Because he got the $500 system.
"Less functionality? NOooOooOoOOo!"
