Okay I'm sure you've all herd by now, the PS3 release date has been set, November 17th, 2006.

<a href='http://img114.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ps3small11oy.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a>

I haven't really seen many shots of actual game graphics, but I'm sure we will not be let down by Sony.

So, what are your opinions on the PS3? Worth it, or just a waste of money?? I think It'll be better than the Xbox 360, which Micro$oft rushed to get released before Christmas 2005. I can't wait to have a go with one :D.

I can?t wait!! I probably won?t be able to buy one when it first comes out but when the hype dies down and prices get lower I definitely gonna buy.


The Blu-ray thing sounds really interesting to.

Yeah same thing here. ^_^

Prices of new technology usually depreciate after a few month's time, so I'll just wait when it gets cheaper [yeah, and by that time, PS4 is out! XD].

I bet it's gonna be better than the XBOX 360! Microsoft has rushed its release... So now they just have to wait for PS3 to kick their arses. XD

Yup im in agreement here :D.
Definately going to wait until the price drops, then consider buying one. I hope the retailers like Game/HMV/Virgin do trade-in offers with PS2s, they did that with the PS1 to PS2 transition. It'll be worth it, because the PS3 is backward compatible.

So essentially your getting a PS1, a PS2 and a PS3 all in one machine :D.

This place is so dead.

*Necromancy*

I do not consider the PS3 a new console and neither do Sony for that matter. We are to 'consider their new machine a computer'. And there is no need to get excited about Blueray, I dont think all of you have realised what blueray will do to gaming. From Sony themselves, When a blueray disk is inserted into a console that console makes it's mark on the disk and that disk can only be played on that console then forth. So in other words, say goodbye to renting, re selling and borrowing. This is the worst thing to happen to games ever.

I doubt it will be the last, the PS franchise is too popular to just stop :o

But it will definitely be a good few years until we hear of a PS4 (But we can already guess what the name will be! :D )

I have to agree with Exiled Master aswell.

Also the games are supposedly going to be $70-$100 each!! Also $600 is quite alot.

I think that if you're gonna get a PS3 then you must have loads of money.

Is that true about Blueray discs being tied down to one machine only =/
Wow that majorly sucks!!

And yeah I hope they make a PSP2, after the amazing success of the original PSP they'll want to cash in and make another one :D

My Xbox360 should be here soon. Xbox over PS simply because of Halo, Morrowind, and a few other games.

I'm not really interested in the third "installment" of Sony's mega-machine PlayStation. Yeah, sure, $600, great graphics, great games, but, well, nothing special for me? I didn't even own a PS2, only the original PlayStation a few years after it came out. But I enjoyed NBA in PS2, especially NBA Live 2005, wherein even half-court shots would go in whenever you want them to. :lol:

So, PS3 is just a fad, for me. But you guys enjoy the games so much, I can't blame you all. :lol: I wish you all the best and I wish you all would have one! :lol:
