Who here has 600 dollars, no seriously, I can only afford one of those suckers. No way can I get two. No fucking way. I wanted to sell one, and trust me, there will be a high demand.

Parents will easily spent 2 grand for one by christmas, but I cant spend 1200 on nov. 17th.

What you people think? Who will buy one? Who will wait? and Who will buy one so friends who do get it, dont rub it in your face?

By the time you'll be able to buy a PS3, the X360 will drop in price and so will al lot of games that have been released over the last few months. Microsoft says we can expect a $80 price drop on the X360 by November. $320 for the Box with HD, compare that to the $600 for the PS3. Then of course you still need games, maybe an extra controller and a batterypack or whatever. You'll end up spending $700 to play some fucking videogames. You know what I can do with $700?! I could get the fuck of my life, twice and buy myself a nice dinner. You can suck my fucking joystick fellas, but I'm not spending $700 on some ennobled DVD player.

I have yet to be convinced to buy this system. I mean i need more incite as to what makes it better then a 360. Anyone got an "informative" site thats list all the ins and outs of this system. You know, basically outlining all of its features and games to best of there ability...

Theres more shit you dont get in the 499$ dollar one. You dont have HDMI support (so no High Def porn). No 60GB harddisk but only 20GB. Cant connect a Memory Stick, SD card or Compact Flash memory sticks. No wireless online.

So you can buy a Wii AND a 360 for one PS3.

340 and 410 damn that is expensive, and to think i didnt buy an xbox 360 because 270 was too expensive. The games for the 360 cost in england 50 which is just ridiculous, thats like 80-90 dollars. i wont be surprsied if ps3 games cost 60 because of that blu ray discs they have. im still stuck on which one to get, ps3 may be expensive but the power and graphics surely will make it have some remakable games. but then again the ps3 doenst really have eye catching exclusive titles, the xbox will have halo 3 and others. and the 360 is way cheaper and like it was said for the price of a ps3 i could get 2 next gen consoles.

I dont know what you're talking about cause it is not playable to the public. First off, my boss is at E3, he didn't get to play it, but from what he saw and what top people in the industry said was that , there was nothing really playable, just footage of Gran Tarismo HD, and Final Fantasy XIII. Yeah, another one already. But people said that it looks just like the 360. The controller is amazing, its a new dual shock 3, but alot of people said Sony stoled from Nintendo, in that it has motion sensing capabilities. Anyway, playable demoes will be available on thursday after all the major console companies display their goods. So, on thursday, people will talk more about it. So, far Sony said nothing about DMC4, God of War 2, or anything PS2 related. Killzone for PS3 wasn't even shown or mentioned. Hmmmmmmmmmm.......... Hopefully, the PS3 will be amazing, but the 20 gig, doesn't have SD, HDMI, Memory Stick, and the worst its not wi-fi capatible.

The PS3 will be good, its just that its not worth 600 for 60 gigs; and that 600 dollars is the fixed price for Uk and US. In Japan, the retailers can make any price they want. The Blue-Ray is what makes the system so expensive. Other than that is should cost the same amount as the 360 does. Whatever!!

When Sony gave out (http://www.engadget.com/2006/05/08/engadget-and-joystiqs-live-coverage-of-sonys-playstation-3-e3-ev/) the specs on the PS3 earlier tonight, the company mentioned that there would be two configurations: a $500 version with a 20GB hard drive and a $600 edition with a 60GB drive. Turns out that was only half the story. Yes, that pricing and storage info is accurate. But it turns out that there are a lot of other things missing from the lower-end (we can't bring ourselves to call a $500 console "cheap") version, besides an extra 40GB of storage. According to the specs released by Sony, the 20GB version will lack WiFi, a memory card reader and, most significantly, HDMI output. While you could probably get along without WiFi in a home-based console that already has Ethernet, and you can always presumably hook up a memory card reader via one of the unit's four USB ports, the lack of HDMI output makes this pretty much a non-starter for anyone hoping to actually use the PS3's Blu-ray drive for anything more than playing games. Sure, we can understand Sony not wanting to undercut sales of its own dedicated Blu-ray players (http://www.engadget.com/2006/01/05/sonys-bdp-s1-their-first-blu-ray-player/) by offering the $500 PS3 as a cheaper alternative. But if the company was hoping to use the gaming platform as a way to build a base of fans for HD discs, chances are the strategy is going to backfire the first time someone tries playing a Blu-ray flick in their 20GB version and discovers that the unit's lack of HDMI limits them to analog 1080i output (or worse, depending on a disc's use of HDCP).



Hope this could be of some help..
