I'm looking forward to this system, even the tought of it costing a bundle doesn't really deter me from buying it, well i'm hoping it comes out good, its going to have to depend on 3rd party dev. to really pick up with the 360, but i have a feeling its going to "eventually" surpass the microsoft console. R.E. 5already is giving me chills! and one of the main points of the betterment of this sony product was the use of the blue-ray, its better than the HD and has a better capacity for storage. I was wondering, is this gonna have a hardrive or are they sticking with the whole memcard format, I have three of them for my PS 2 and its getting old!
