PS3 Release Date & Price Announced

Bah, the $500 dollar version sucks. It lacks media slots and HDMI output, and wireless capabilities. Its a worse ripoff than the $300 Xbox 360. The Wii and Xbox 360 are dominating this show in terms of crowd appeal. Zelda, Mario, and Metroid all look amazing. Halo 3, Gears of War, and Too Human, ditto. In fact:

Snap, Covenant on Earth. This one will be a blast. Zelda now takes advantage of Wii controls and looks awesome. Mario is in freaking space now. The PS3 is looking gimped compared to the competition right now, and a lot of people hate the price. Not to mention they tacked on the motion sensing to steal from Nintendo.
Also, Yoda, you'd be wrong. Nintendo makes huge amounts of profit mainly due to their decade long dominance in the handheld market. Their home console marketshare isn't great, but they dont sell hardware at a loss like the other two, and they still make a ton off their franchises.

Me. Unlike xBox 360, games will be backwards compatible and also play HD movies. Considering xBox 360 is selling for appx the same amount of money, PS3 seems like a bargain to me.


The 360 is backwards compatible. Currently 214 games are backwards compatible, and those that are not compatible will have patches availiable on the internet shortly.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

:-? Nintendo makes more profit from the video gaming industry than the others. The Gamecube and Xbox console sales were very similar. Not sure Zelda, Metroid, Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness, etc. which are a lot of the Gamecube's most popular games are kid oriented either.

8-o


MSG4 does look really sweet, but there's no way I spend $600 on the thing.

My PS2 still works just fine, and there's still going to be plenty of great games put out on PS2, God of War 2 is the top dog on my list.

Oh god, they just showed the next Super Smash Bros, and Metroid Prime 3 is launching with Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy. Literally orgasmic.

Anybody see the the video for Final Fantasy XIII. Holy crap those are some tight graphics. I just wish they would remake Final Fantasy VII on the PS3 instead.

Solid Snake hiding in boxes then snapping Pikachu's neck should be classic.
