With the very first U.S. Playstation 3 consoles going on sale in less than 15 minutes, we’d like to hear from anyone who stood in line, got a console, or didn’t and what your experiences have been, good, bad or ugly.
Market intelligence firm iSuppli has completed their preliminary analysis of the costs to manufacture Sony’s Playstation 3 consoles. It looks like the two PS3 models (20/60GB) will lose between $241 and $306 each, not including the cost of accessories such as cables, controllers, packaging or shipping.
While using a small amount of hard disk space to cache a portion of game content is a trick long used by the Xbox 360 and pretty much all PC games, it’s been revealed that some PS3 games would be using a very significant portion of the console’s hard drive to speed performance.
Pictures of the 20GB and 60GB models of Sony’s Playstation 3 console have surfaced and we can finally see the differences between the two models.
While the 20GB model features a completely black case, the 60GB model features some (IMHO, tacky) chrome accents.
For some time there have been rumors circulating around the web about Sony’s upcoming Playstation 3 and possible support for Linux.
According to this press release from Terra Soft Solutions, the rumors appear to be true.
According to this post over at Kotaku, the Sony Playstation 3 will only include a crappy composite video cable when it’s released in Japan.
Apparently, even though the Playstation 3 is all about high definition gameplay and movies, you’re expected to go spend even more money to get it to output onto anything other than a crummy old TV.
A couple of weeks back, I reported on dumb quotes by Sony execs and I thought for sure that I had heard every ludicrous comment possible about their upcoming Playstation 3 release.
I guess Sony Australia’s boss, Michael Ephraim, wanted to make sure we didn’t run out of choice sound bites.
