    I watch movies. I like my movies having HD content that takes up 25gb. I hate Sony and I hope bluray fails hard but as of now, it aint happenin. They do make some nice TVs though...

    I'm loving my 60gb PS3.

    The 360 Elite comes out the day after my birthday, I believe I'll be getting it, I only wish it was 65nm.

    Blue Dragon (360) is going to be a 3-DVD game. That is why you need HD-DVD (which Microsoft skimped on) or Blu-Ray (which Sony didn't).

    Look back a bit. A lot of games are now DVD games but a lot are still CD, and shouldn't be because my Titan Quest game is 5 CD's but could have been pressed onto a single DVD.

    When you are putting high resolution (aka "HD") content into a game you will eventually exceed the limitations of a DVD.

    But what about dual layer DVDs? I don't think games will be exceeding 8GB anytime soon...

    I'm not sure if Blue Dragon is using dual layer or not, but they said it will be 3 DVD's so I doubt it. Can these consoles read dual layer?

    id say in the long run blueray will win, in the near term there will be hybrid players. about the ps3, i dont know but i doubt itll be very successfull even with killer game titles. i hope it follows the same fate as the dreamcast, but even if it does i doubt it would be the end of sony.

    the PS3 cant kill Sony.
    at max a few people will lose their jobs. Sony is active in alot of markets. Yes the PS3 is a important product to Sony but it isnt everything.

    the PS3 is important to them cause its not only a console but also a tool for them to market Blu-ray.

    This is what I'm thinking. Sony may be making a bold move - with a bit of "because we can" thrown in there, but I don't see how it can bring the whole empire down. There's always potential though, and that'll be unbelievable. The PS3 will become "the little console that could".

    Just like some RPGs on PS1 had multiple CDs......what's the big deal?? I'd rather switch a disc after 10+ hours then pay $200 for a format that might be obsolete down the road.

    Switching disks sucks, you now have 2 disks instead of 1 which sucks, and it doesn't help progress technology.

    There's no risk that you'll buy a PS3 then be screwed if BL dies because THE DRIVE IS BLURAY THEREFORE THE GAMES MUST BE BLURAY.

    I pretty much think that the PS3 is gonna push Sony to its crying point in the US. The PS3 reminds me alot of other failed consoles, like the 3DO, or the Neo Geo. It has superior technologies than all the other consoles, but not enough decent games. I dont really care how fantastic the graphics are if the games arent worth buying.

    I personally see the 360 and the Wii dominating in the US. By now there are tons of great games out for the 360, and a few good ones, and tons of promise for the Wii. What does the PS3 have? Not too much.....Resistance, its worth playing maybe, Motorstorm, not my cup of tea. PS3 has already lost exclusive rights to FFXIII and Devil May Cry 3. So what does it have left? MGS4, maybe. I could possibly see myself buying a PS3 for $400 to play this, MAYBE.

    I know you hear this alot, but im gonna say it again. Sony lost over 300$ (more than the PS2 originally cost) with every 20GB PS3 sold. Thats why they stopped selling them. They lose slightly less (something like $275) with the 60GB version. We'll just have to see how this one turns out, but my money is on the 360, with the Wii in a tie, or in a close 2nd

    I see what I see, and you see what you see. I can't make you see what I see, but I can tell you what I see is not what you see. Truth is, we see what we want to see, and what we want to see is what those around us see. And what we don't see is... well, conspiracies.

    If Blu-ray does win, picking up a PS3 for $200 in a few years with a bunch of cheap games would be a really sweet deal. Right now though i'll just wait for a 360 price drop.

    hmmmmm


    Sony has confirmed it intends to cut jobs at its Computer Entertainment Unit in the US, just two months after it announced plans to slash eight per cent of its European workforce.

    The troubled firm's game division reported an operating loss of $1.91bn for the year ended 31 March due to the high-costs associated with its PlayStation 3 console. Sony appears to have failed to re-coup those expenses because of the immense popularity of Nintendo's Wii.
    In fact, according to recent figures published by the Japanese games magazine publisher Enterbrain, the Wii is currently outselling the PS3 by at least four to one in Japan, while in the US, it was the top-selling new console for the fourth consecutive month in April, with some 360,000 units shifted versus just 82,000 for Sony's latest machine.

    I have to agree. I won’t buy a PS3 (maybe when they drop to $250), but Sony seems to be pulling through.
