    Why would sony even make bluray? No video rental places are going to carry dvd and bluray... they will be avalible only online... plus who wants to use the ps3 for a bluray player, its like playing Cd's on a ps1.....

    Yes it could break Sony's financial at first at second send many people to home or saying properly fire all.
    I'm very disappointed with sony not because what they are giving to us that I think is a fantastic hardware but for the games showed until now that lacks everything, they never say something to us , but I think their software programming is not good as the microsoft is. We all know microsoft is years ahead of any company you we speak about software programming being all excelents programs. I think Nintendo will really be the world choice because it play a important role inthe video game industry related just with games, that means made for gamers.

    Playstation 3 =
    Microsoft XBOX 360 =
    Nintendo Wii =

    Sony is risking alot w/ the PS3.
    WTF @ Blue Ray Disc... couldn't they at least use a better name lol. Something like DVD2 or DVD Plus or w/e. Nobody will know wtf Blue Ray is...
    Who knows until release though. Maybe they have something up their sleaves...
    But I am looking forward to MSG4. I'll get a PS3 eventually. I don't really like XBOX360 that much.
    The Wii is pretty nice though. Probably gonna grab that up.

    Sony's definately risking a lot. Just to promote blu-ray, they put it in their system and risk having people not buy it because of price. Plus, the $600 version includes some features that $500 version owners won't be able to add later such as hdmi.

    A buddy of mine who frequents the local Game Stop told me that the guy who works there said the PS3 console will have different packages(like the 360) and will be comparable to todays 360 prices(360 is supposed to drop in price in the near future) but the games will be FROM $80 to ~$130....anyone else hear this???

    BTW, I primarily game on PC..but will be getting a Wii...that controller has great potential and supposedly Nintendo will exploit it.

    I hope PlayStation 3 would stink, so PS4 could turn out better.

    ps3 is only coming out for one reason and its because msoft is pushing the console scene to a new level. Sony lovers will realize this when they dont get as many games coming out and not nearly as fast as they will be not to mention already are coming out for the 360.

    It won't kill Sony, they have their hands in too many other markets to be taken down that easily.
    Windows 7 + SSD:
    Mode: AHCI, default Microsoft driver or latest Intel RST
    Defrag: Off
    Hibernation: Off (use Sleep mode, recommend a UPS)
    Indexing: On (it only indexes a few locations, not your whole system unless you tell it to)
    Page File: On (set to the minimum of 16MB if you have a large amount of RAM, disabling not recommended)
    Prefetch: On
    Superfetch: On (RAM is always faster than an SSD - use it)
    System Restore: Off (with regular backups)
    Browser Cache: RAM Only, Disk Cache Off (How to with Chrome)
    Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads to HDD (Public Libraries too, see above link about junctions)
    UAC: On!

    Very true, but other leaders in the other markets are taking Sony down. For instance Samsung is beating Sony to cell phones, and LG is beating Sony to televisions. I also read a few months ago that Sony closed down many of its factories due to the lack of sales. If the PS3 doesn't sell as expected, then yeah Sony will take a big hit.

    sony does have problems in many markets.but yo are underestimating the power of cell(tm).It will take some time for game developers to learn how to program for it though.

    Im definately not a sony fan but its just not feasable that a company as diversified as sony would sink because the ps3 doesnt do well.

    Did they dissappear when betamax didnt work out? No
    Did they collapse when nobody bought minidisc player? No

    They have a market cap of damn near 38 billion dollars. They could easily afford the ps3 tanking. They'd just go back to the drawing board and work on ps4. I do know i wont be initially purchasing the ps3 at launch prices because of the bend me over prices.

    sony definitely isn't going to tank but there's no question it'd hurt them. they've been slowly losing the consumer electronics quality battle to samsung the past 5 years and this would be one more blow they really don't need right now.

    PS3 launch reminds me of the PSP launch. Overhyped with beautiful looking games and lousy gameplay and it capable of playing movies. We all know about UMD movies and how they cost much more than their DVD counter parts and could only be viewed on the PSP- horrible idea. After all the eye candy is aborbed the games got boring. At the time of the PSP launch, alot of people predicted Sony to take the handheld crown from Nintendo- a year later it is struggling while Nintendo rehashes their hand-held over and over again and it sells like hot cakes. Nintendo is nostalgia- I'm sure everyone remembers when they first picked up Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt or when they first traverse Link thru Hyrule.

    If only Miyamoto was given hardware as powerful as the PS3 to develop games on.

    Sony thought that it would take the Nintendo crowed to their side. What a mistake.

    Experience speaks more than hardware power..

    First of all, both versions of the PS3 will have HDMI
    output.

    Saying the 360 and the PS3 are comparable
    in price is arguable. With the HD-DVD drive
    purchase, the 360 is as much as the "better"
    PS3 and has less drive space.

    The big point however, is that you are not
    being forced to adapt into this new format
    just yet and you can hook up the HD-DVD
    drive to your 360 and your computer,
    allowing for much more usage, if you decide
    to later buy into it. Heck you can't even get
    a BRD for your computer, for that cheap
    ($200 for the HD-DVD drive). Through a little
    modding you can even get the drive to fit in
    your PC.

    Within the next year Msoft plans to drop the
    prices, by how much I am not sure. Even if it
    isn't much, I am sure you will see some really
    good bundles. As for plans to incorporate the
    HD-DVD drive into the system, I highly doubt it.

    A really good reference to such information is
    another set of posts I have made on the subject:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=120773

    One key thing from those posts is a technology
    called "Procedural Texturing" it is one of many
    new ways to make a really good looking texture
    fit into 90% less of a space. Think of taking a
    480MB game and making it fit into a 50MB space
    and you'll have the general Idea.

    Well I must say, there are idiots who think bluray improves graphics, and there are idiots who think ps3s are like super powerful and like even better than the best computers...want verification? They're in my school

    Sony was taking a risk by using the PS3 to try to get the bluray disc out. But seriously, what game needs 25GB?????? They're making the customer pay more for a total waste of EVERYTHING.
