    Default New Info on the PS3.

    - Reuters reported that Sony has confirmed a spring 2006 launch date for PlayStation 3, but no territory was specific, so the system maybe launched in Japan first. Sony has denied the online reports about the PS3 launch been pushed back to Q4 2006.

    - PSM has reported new tidbits regarding to PlayStation 3, based on info provided by anonymous developers.

    * There are far more game titles in development for PS3 than originally expected in US.
    * Some developers have already received the final development hardware for PS3 in early January 2006.
    * The performance of the PS3 hardware is faster than expected, PS3 also possesses a Digital Video Recording (DVR) function.
    * Sony will have a content download service similar to iTunes, but will offer high definition movies, videos and music.
    * PS3 will have Media Center capabilities similar to Xbox 360, but with more functions.
    * Video and audio can be streamed over a home network, Sony is planning for a location free rendition over PSP.
    * PSP will be able to exchange data with PS3; it is possible to upload multimedia contents from PSP to PS3.
    * PS3 will have firmware update capabilities similar to PSP.
    * PS3 will have more BluRay functionalities than a regular BluRay Player, because the Cell and RSX processor can do a lot more tasks while reading the discs.
    * PS3 will launch in US in Autumn 2006, certain game titles will have online functions at launch.


    All this info was taken from PSM via www.the-magicbox.com a very reliable international video game news site.

    Looks like Sony kicked the PS3 up another notch! BAM!

    hmmm... interesting, i want a ps3 but i dont think ill get the 1st generation one since systems usually have problem when they first come out. but as long as NIS America is developing almost exclusively with Sony im definitely getting one.

    my price guess from that info - $449


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

    if it's just 449 then Sony will be incurring heavy losses per console...

    Pretty much, I'm under the stance "I'll believe it when I see it". However those details do seem pretty sweet.

    Of course they gonna get a giant lost on the system, the system themself take atleast $1000 to make. The same deal with the 360. The tactic though is that people will buy enough games to make up the lost.

    I usually put good faith in Sony, they've been consistance and reliable with almost all thier products. So it a fairly safe bet regarding Sony I believe.

    i hear the exact opposite about sony... that their products are usually very excellent but also very fragile and weak. they break easily and usually have lots of problems.

    and they already figured it out. the price to manufacture a PS3 is $573 they announced it at E3 2005 when the full specs were given.

    really? I still have my orignal PS2 and PS1 around and still working just fine. And I'm somewhat a hardcore gamer... Not to mention I have CD Player from 7 years ago from sony that still working (Just tested it). I hardly have problems with anything. I even modded my PS2. What do these people do? Throw them against the wall?

    and only $573 to make a PS3? Then they can totally afford to sell reasonable lower, considering the lineup they have to launch along with the PS3. They can make up the lost easily with game sale.

    Hmmm... I'm hoping the game sale don't do so great at first, cause if that the case Sony stock my drop a bit, maybe enough to buy a bunch of share, the rise to the top. Bwahhhaaha... I wish... even if sony stock drop, I still never afford it XD

    yea but think if they have to sell it for 300 or 400 dollars theyre losing almost 200 just on one system... times that by an expectation of over 4 million sold worldwide (before a manufacturing price drop) give or take and thats almost 8 BILLION dollars sony loses...

    oh and some people are idiots. other travel with their systems so damage does occur unexpectedly no matter how smart you are. accidents happen and systems should be sturdier. but sony doenst make sturdy systems unless you keep them in mint condition... or something like that
