Arrow Sony's nose grows yet still

not only was all the ingame at e3 fake since the graphics card isnt even finished yet, but it seems that every ps3 will ship inherently defective. :: because of some redunancy issues only 7 of the 8 processors will actually work. of course since this got out sony is dodging by saying it was meant to be this way to keep down cost. it probably means that theres a small chance that some playstations will have better graphics than others.

http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/06...s_6127799.html

and the psp's production has been slashed by over 30 % from the number that sony had originally promised.

Its gameover Sony. XBoX360 will demolish it. One it won't ship with defective processors. (hopefully)

the ps3 is going to be hard drive sold seperatly too. probably around 120 bucks or as much as 180.

400 + 180 = 580 O_O they still have time to shave off other things. perhaps it wont come with a controller.

btw link for story of no hd

http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/07...s_6128501.html

alot are pretty sure sony is gonna charge $399 for the console (which is still at a loss by the way it cost 494, i think, to make it) im sure there will be certain priveledges to having a hard drive that no one will want to be left out of... another 180 dollars. most everyone gets a second controller for sports/shooter games. id be flumuxord if sony didnt charge at least $60 for one of those. and unless u are content to just look at it games are to be $60 (im sure sony doesnt even intend to include a demo disc with the ps3 either. they didnt with the ps2)

for your average kid who wants all the things that come with a new console that comes to.

$700 bux dough

O_O

fan boys will probably pay it too. that beets the 3d0 back in the day i think. this officially makes sony more evil than microsoft and oprah combined

Im sorry to hear that Sony would jerk us arround in such a way. I've been a faithful Playstation junky since 97. I loved the fact that when the PS2 came out everything for PS1 was compatable

I could probably buy a Revolution, a DS, and a Game Boy Micro for that kind of cash... and still have some money left over. And that's pretty convenient since those are the three Nintendo systems that I don't have yet.

Seems unlikely they would put it next to a ps3 if it wasn't to scale

Unless the ps3 was also a scale model, for all you know the real thing might be the size of a small suitcase...

well if it is a nighmare then it the nintendo system for me, i buy that before wasting my money on the trashy xbox360. Face it no matter how many problems the PS3 will have it will still kill Xbox. just look at how bad the graphics are on the PS2 compared to the xbox and gamecube and there still on top.

To be fair, most games for PS2 also came out on XBox, and it's much prettier. If you want to play those games, XBox is a better choice, Sony just got there before MS.

ya thats what I hate about the console business. if your the first one out with one then your probly going to be the worst console out of the bunch when it comes to technology. I always thought that was sega's downfall altogether. ( but it probly wasn't)

i think segas downfall had more to do with its games. there are people out there that adore the worlds that sega's presented however, their games are weird and off beat. most of time in segas games, i dont feel like i belong there. (for example: sonic, shenmue, vectorman, ...) playing a sega game is sometimes like going to a really pretty side of town but feeling like its seedy and keeping an eye over your shoulder. ill bet alot of people felt that way about sega and didnt support them because of it.

alot of people, sony fans even, have lately come to realize all of sonys missleadings and shortcomings. (realizing that they have bought 3 ps2's in the last 2 years because they keep breaking down.) this was acknowledged in how they had to admit that the b.s. at E3 was b.s. when usually sony would have carried on and made fan boys forget with careful advertising. i dont think sony should go away (more is better... sometimes) however i do think they have to be humbled. in a weird way, because they are cheating (and they are) i feel like they have to learn a lesson. sort of in like one of those movies from the 80's where the protagonist beats his arsehole bully to with in an inch of his life, the bully realizes his areshole ness, and then makes friends with everyone in the end.

:edit:@zoot |see below| o wow segas euro web site is way better than their us one. yeah i know like i said alot of people love sega games but alot of others think their weird and thats why sega today isnt as strong as they were (no hardware)

I seriously doubt Sega failed because of their games - on the contrary, they stopped making consoles so that they could concentrate on their games, which is what they're still doing now.

I got a PS2 the first day they were available and it hasn't broken down yet. Though I did have to open it up once and clean the laser lense. But other than that I've had no real problems with it.

I know exactly why people have replaced their ps2's.

Without fail, whenever they are jerked off of a shelf by the controller cord, the CD bay jams (and the average person would think it was busted.)

I've rehabilitated no less than three PS2s that had this problem. One had been trashed by a dorm of college kids...and in an hour's work, I had it fixed. I've fixed two PS2s for my girlfriend and her brother this way, as well...even my own, when relatives came over and tripped over the cord.

So, basically, people are stupid and lazy (exempting my girlfriend, because I told her I knew how to fix hers.) So rather than considering what the problem is, people tend to just replace things.

tbf, after we all found out how sh*te the ps2 was compared to the xbox, we all liked the xbox, even tho most of us stated first that xbow was the best. it seems to me that microsoft and sony have been flashing in and out of the public favour for years now, seen as the big guys stamping on the little ones. Quite a lot of us i think wish that redhat would release a gaming console becuase then we would all go for that. The big companys will always be slaundered because they are, ultimately big and we are getting bored of the same old names. I mean 10 years back anyone who had a bigscreen sony tv would be stinking rich and someone to admire but is it really that uncommon now? we need somthing different and from what ive seen so far this is old stuck in a new slinky catsuit.
