    Anybody run up to wal-mart and play one of these things yet?

    So far by what I've seen (Screenshots) it looks like the games released on it have graphics equivalent to the XB360.

    If it stays that way, a system capable of so much will fall. Though it is the cheapest Blu-ray player. So those people who just HAVE to have blu-ray this very moment will get em.

    the games will always look similar between the ps3 and the 360. they arent much different in terms of real-world horsepower. the ps3 technically is more capable, but the video card inside will never be able to take full advantage of the processor. also, the ps3 is more memory-limited.

    and in any case, the games that are made for both platforms will look the same by default. much like console games that are ported to pc's, the developers usually just get them to work and not worry about adjusting the graphics accordingly.

    the ps3 is a much better movie player from what i hear, so that could sway a decision. to me though, pc's are for high-end graphic games and FPS'ers. the wii is for everything else that isnt optimal with just a mouse and keyboard.

    dont take it as blu-ray costs $1000 to make. i would give the markup on the bluray drives say oh, a million percent give or take to me, even the $200 hd-dvd drive for the xbox is still entirely too much. it wont be long before its the most expensive hd-dvd drive...

    I got a PS3 when it came out and then I resold it on Ebay

    With the extra money (it went for $1260 +shipping), I bought myself a Wii with an extra controller and zelda

    With with the cost of the PS3 and the Wii, I was still able to make a profit. People are crazy spending that much monies on a game system! haha

    That's what I should do, spend my money on getting a Wii and resell it. Then buy one (Or two) later

    It seems that Sony has irritated the wrong people, Software Developers.

    “The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels, I think. It’s really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted. I’d say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a ‘do over’. Just say, ‘This was a horrible disaster and we’re sorry and we’re going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it’,” Mr. Newell is reported to have said in an interview with Game Informer Magazine.
