ps3

This is somewhat amusing and time critical. Someone is hacking the Amazon ps3 20GB listing.

So far they have replaced the "screenshot" page with a picture from Pong, and replaced the accessories page with a picture of two cans connected by string.

I can't say how long the hacked page will stay up, but it seems to be happening as I speak, the cans werent there when I first opened the page.

the console wars is gonna be between Xbox 360 and Wii. Sony shot itself in the foot by making the price so high and the backwards compatibily....

Oh and those pictures were submitted...by a person. I don't think they're the droppings of a hacker. A good hacker doesn't leave a trace...(no idea of what I'm talking about)

The PS3 is by far the best of the next gen concols....Only problem is it has a massive price tag.

Which is mainly do to the blueray player. Cheapest one on the market.
If you want to get it really cheap, get in a time machine and make sony change the 200GB blue ray disks to like the 360's 9GB hdtv dvd's.
Short list of the next gens good things,
PS3
Best graphics, most powerfull, 200GB game disks, SIXAXIS, HDTV, full Browser, Can run modern OS (Mac OS, Windows, linux.) Playback compatable, quiet
Wii
Full motion sensor, playback, Awome controller's, small, WIIconnect24, quiet
360
um..... ok so it can't really compete with wii or ps3 when they come out in USA, its just cheap and has great games. graphics are tied with the wii, power is slightly better that wii but no where near the ps3.

So probably get the wii untill sony can make blueray thngs cheaper.

But really would you rather play a 200GB or 9GB game? think about it you can fit about 25 360 games on one ps3 disk. and the 360 is no where near the PS3's power.

the only problem is the pricetag...I go to a school where people can easily afford 1 or 2 ps3's with their own money(meaning the money get through gambling usually). While in school, I have heard one person talk about the ps3. Most gamers in my school already have a 360 and are content or they're thinking of buying a wii. Most people won't be patient enough to wait for the price to drop enough. Also that one person who likes the ps3 only likes it because of the "name". She honestly thinks that the sony will suffer major losses in the beginning but she says shes waiting for the games that makes playstation so popular.

and on a more objective note...who cares about graphics. I personally think gameplay is more important. All these systems have amazing potential but its getting increasingly hard for developers to use all the potential of these machines...
also blu-ray is 25 gigs not 200, 50 if they want to get fancy.

...wait I'm not done yet. Also Xbox 360 may be getting new peripherals and a browser. There was a recent surveying of what peripherals people wanted on xbox live for random 360 owners.

BTW, is Nintendo ever gonna get into the realm of backwards compatibility? That has pissed me off for years. Sony laid out the foundation for it. Sega's consoles have already died. But I don't think Nintendo is following suit

I believe the Wii will play Gamecube discs and older games (including old Sega stuff - I think) are available for download.

Its all a matter of preference. I have the 360 and love it and the statement "graphics are tied with the wii" ... come on dude.. PS3 graphics are tied with x360, wii graphics are tied with Xbox. Besides Mario Galaxy and Red Steel, I dont see any other game even touching Xbox's Ninja Gaiden or Forza Motorsports.

"Wii/PS3 ... quiet" Really couldnt care for a consoles noise it makes, especially when you play games with the tv unmuted.

"But really would you rather play a 200GB or 9GB game?" Usually a game is judged on Graphics / Gameplay, now Sony has convinced you that the size of the game matters now. Ive played GBA's Golden Sun (i dunno, about 12 MB?) since 9th grade and still havent finished it (on the sequel now and 1st semester of college.)

I tell you what, 25GB (like datdo said), only 15GB might actually be used. The rest will be "extra content" You know, like the extra features of a dvd movie you dont care to watch anyway..? Yeah....10GB of it.

BUT THEN AGAIN, its all my opinion.

Nintendo's actually done that with the Game Boy Advance (and the DS too, if I'm not mistaken), so either you're being an ignoramus or you're just talking about home consoles.

Are the Gameboy and Gameboy Advance really different consoles? I always thought any game you could play on one, you could play on the other. I'm not familiar with the DS though. I assumed it used discs. Does it actually take cartridges?

The DS will play GBA games. but not Gameboy games. Different sized carts.

Na, The XBox360 is not THAT cheap, as you have to buy the HD Player separately. Ive read that it will be ~200$ so You pay more than for a Playstation 3 with 60gb (and the 360 only 20gb)

But this whole "Console Wars" is geting on my nervs, well its more the "Flame kiddys" Ps3 sucks xbox rules you suck too blabla mys is bigger than yours.

@mamba,
the space WILL be used some day. Just like back in the days when no one thought you would need CDs and 3 1/4 " Disks would be enough. And then DVD. If you have more space you can use uncompressed Textures ect That it runs faster.

@datdo
"who cares for the graphics"

Well i do not. But it seems like that the majority does. Otherwise we wouldn need Konsoles like this. SNES would be enough :p
