Probably a bit overpriced too start with. I'll wait and judge public reaction before buying.

before you have to reserve them again because they will be rushing off the shelves after seeing the PS3.

kewlkyle must you always plaster that image all over? I have yet to see other members go into threads on the xbox and post huge pics like that why must you? Is PS3 that big of a threat to you that you think microsoft needs your help in marketing?

Like i said before it looks amazing and im betting the games will be really fun ^^

well, since i've pre-ordered one (and have to fork out a lot o money to get it) I think it looks amazing!! all the things it can do, it is twice as good the xbox 360, IMO.

Yes, it is expensive, but in my opinion it's worth it...

Final Fantasy XIII
Metal Gear Solid 4
Devil May Cry 4
Tomb Raider 8

It is an interesting concept, but I have doubts whether it really is succesful. For a start, the price is quite high in comparison. It also is unclear how well the new technology works. Rumor has it that the graphics chip has less power than the graphics chip in an Xbox 360. There have also been reports that access to the processor's internal memory is extremely slow, which means all memory access will have to go to the main memory. That is likely to hurt performance.

I also have doubts if the games that come out for it will really be able to use the huge amount of power this system can offer. While the Cell processor is a very interesting concept, it is also very different from all current systems. I don't think there will be software that can really take full advantage of all this power until maybe 2 or 3 years after initial launch. There are also rumors that Sony has problems getting Development Kits ready, so programmers won't have as much access to the hardware as they need to. It is likely that they will be rather conservative, at least for the first generation of games on this console.

There are other reports that PS3 is facing problems. For example, yet another rumor (seems like there is nothing but rumor surrounding this device) is that Sony will include a full PS2 chipset with the first generation of PS3 because their emulation software won't be ready until launch.

Sony has a very interesting concept and it could be a huge success. But they also seem to face a lot of trouble that could at least pose some problems for them at launch.

Expensive, but that's not going to stop me, even if I have to stop spending for a month or two before hand :cln:

I want to see the AoD Super jumps again!!:

I have 5 thoughts about the PS3.

1. It's expensive
2. I sure can't wait to spend my money on it. :D
3. Metal Gear Solid 4 will rock!
4. So will Assassins Creed!
5. Hurry up and get here November 17th!

Now is this an XBox cult thread? :confused:

I thought so. So stop fighting. Please.

EDIT: yes, I realised I was the first to start the "argument"

I am certainly going to buy one. Hopefully right after its initial release. I really dig the fact that I can go play my old PS1 Ridge Racer game on it! Backwards compatibility is a big selling point.
Of course, that means I have to buy a better TV to properly display its capabilities!!

I never used a game console. But I know PlayStation has been in the market the longest, so the creators must have most knowledge and expercience...

xBox sucks. :D It's sooo typical Microsoft. Give it a fancy logo and name, make a lot of advertising... but the product itself really sucks. And if it doesn't suck on its own, it definitely does if you compare it to others.

But I won't say more, it's not an xbox thread. :D

how can u say xbox suck when u never have used it..!

wrong thread but :p

sorry to say this.. buuuut... playstation 3 will most probably win the fight against xbox360... It has so many licenced games that are awesome... Sony has gained a huge fan group under the title of playstation.. It has the widest amount of games and not just crasy. Headless shooting games like xbox has..
If i want shooters I buy them for pc.. Alot better.. And Xbox has so few games that interests The huge group of ps fans.. For me there are no games on xbox 360 that interests me :(

Sorry again xbox lovers..

I have a PS2 but I'm more interested in the Xbox 360 and the Wii, but I'll talk about the 360.
The Xbox 360 has more exclusives that I'm interested in and since I buy SmackDown! games every year and that is now being released for the 360, well, that speaks for itself.
