I think this could be a major selling point. Blu-Ray player and next-gen system for $400. Only a rumor though, for now. The FCC is testing a new type of PS3

ehhh...I guess I would get a PS3 for $400.

I dont really care to own one, but $400 is more appealing than that $600, $700 bullshit they had

The catch is is that it will be a 40gb version. But still, its not that bad.

if you managed to fill up more than 40gb, turn off the ps3 and get a life.

however, i'm currently unaware of how much space one game takes up. i'm assuming it's not too much tough.

Could fill 40bg with music alone, Then you have Video and Image Media..

there is no cathc

with ps3 it comes with instruction on how to install ur own aftermarket harddrive and it doesnt void warranty as long as you do it like how the manual says, so you can get a 120 gig HD for like 100 bucks and install urself.

ill deal

Ps3 is a retarded idea. way too much money, with that kind of dough you can go to another country, plus im yet to hear of any Ps3 exclusive games, mainly cause 2 people have them, mainly cause it costs 700 dollars, mainly cause they HAD to put that faggoty blue ray like anyone realllly cares or cares enough to blow 700 so that your dvds can look really real when they already look too real to begin with, which is why they can only make like 2 a year.

maaaan, feel free to have an opinion, but base it with some facts yeah?

Check the upcoming list of exclusives, as well as ones already released

Resistence: Fall of man
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Motorstorm
Uncharted - If you don't know what is then don't even comment
Metal Gear Solid 4
Little Big Planet
Killzone 2
Folklore
Final Fantasy XIII
Final Fantasy Versus XIII
Kingdom Hearts 3
Killzone 2
Heavenly Sword
Lair
Unreal Tournament 3 (Timed Exclusive)
Grand Turismo 5: Prologue
Grand Turismo 5
Tekken 6

When it comes to exclusives, 360 hasnt got a thing of PS3. Then all the multi-plat titles like Resident Evil and DMC and even GTA. All this with the announcement of the new rumble shock coming to PS3, which vibrates according to where you were hit in the game.

Blu-Ray isn't just for DVDs.... thats stupid shit. Check what developers say. It allows them to not have to compress everything, so when you're playing a game every wall/floor/box isn't the same textures, everything looks different. It allows the sound to be epic, proper surround sound because it's not compressed.

You might know nothing of what that means. Which is kinda the point, don't bash if you've got no clue what it is.

PS3 cost 600$ not 700$ plus is the cheapest way to get a blue ray if ya interested in one anyway

someone at gamestop told me that the PS3 have the price of 500 with 60g(which i took advantage of) till those versions are sold completely once they get sold they gonna lunch the new 80g for 600$ he never mention nothing about lowering the price to 400$

the 2 thing Xbox360 got on PS3 is the price(Nintendo beat their asses anyway) and Xbox Live which is logical since is Microsoft i think the PS3 got free online connection like the PSP but not sure of it

Eh? This is more stuff people dont know about yet buy into Microsoft hype.

PS3 online is free.

PS3 has something called "Home" to be released later this year/early next year. "Home" is pretty much a Sims game, where you meet people, you can display all the awards you win, have people over just to chat and shit while bumping whatever music you like. You can bump 36 Chambers with cunts around checkin out the pad you decked out, then go play a game with them.

People just arent patient. Even then, PS3 sales are going up and up, beating 360's monthly. Thats before the big guns even drop. No ones even used it to the full capacity yet, it's at about a third, while the 360 is 90% maxed out.

In time, there'll be a lot of people thinking "damn" while sending their 360's back for more repairs while others are going on about how dope the new MGS is. Can't fuckin wait, MGS online.. ooh yeah

too bad I was just reading the rumored 400 dollar ps3...

might have no card slots, no usb (big maybe), and no backwards compatible to play old ps and ps2 games (and I know the ps3 games are lackluster right now)

i hate when people just compare the upfront price for the 2 systems. theres so many hidden fees for things on the 360, you will probably end up paying the same amount or more for it in the long run. ps3 is more powerful and is a lot nicer looking too, just needs the games now.

yup, wont have backward compat with ps2 games

thats why you should get 60 gig now while they last
