    499 for the low end, 599 for the higher one. Considering the specs on the BluRay player they are putting in, and the fact that a lot of us were thinking it would be much better, we were pretty much right on the money.

    Good ****ing Game:

    Technically Jake was right on the dollar for the low end system. Way to release an almost unafforable system, Sony.

    Anyone who judges a console based on specs is in no way a real gamer.

    Gg Canada I guess. I haven;t bought anything sony since PS1...who is getting PS3 and why? I want to know why. I want a Wii too, so it's the decision-making that I don't want to do without any outside opinions. :p

    No card slots/hdmi ports/wifi really sucks, but at least it can still output 1080p/play blu-ray movies.

    @DM: And why am i getting a PS3? because of the games of course. getting a Wii too.

    Price: PS3 has two price points - 500 for the 20 gig ahrddrive, 600 for the 80 gig, and extra ports, and hdmi in/out, and a BUNCH of other shit. Basically, it's 600 bucks. Wii will sit somewhere around 200 - 50 bucks either way.

    So what the **** do you judge it by? Who makes it?! I know you are a liberal that hates Microsoft for NO reason other than its Microsoft. Can you say Halo3? That's what I thought.

    Specs are whats its about. I guess you buy things by have much they sparkle or how cool the stickers they put on it??!

    Sorry I snapped but Christ! Based on specs?! :huggles

    i think what the homo was trying to get across is that its more about the games then the specs.




    If the PS3 wins the next console war, it'll be because of the jap fan boys.

    How bout the games your going to be playing on it. But i guess you don't play games on it, your just listen to the hum of the fan, and the warm glow your processors make when they arn't used to play any good games.

    Actually, I hate Microsoft for releasing instable OS, then turning around and trying to make consoles. Anyways.

    That's my point. Consoles are to play games on. To hell with the rest. If I want to watch DVDs, I'll buy a DVD player. If I want to listen to music, I'll either use my ipod, computer or a cd player. If I want to play games I'll use my console.
