1. So you have some random Quote that no one has seen before and you fail to give a link to said quote.

2. If you say that yyou can hook up your PS3 to your Computer, what stops you from putting ISO Images on there and playing Games from the Hard Drive?

Calm it down guys. This is way off-topic.

The simple fact is that no one outside of the Sony "inner circle" has much of a real idea of exactly what the device is going to be able to do, how it's going to look, or how it's going to be marketed.

About the only things that seem certain at the moment is the name of the processor, Cell, but exactly what its capabilities will be when packaged in the PS3 still remains a mystery, and the fact that they will probably use BluRay technology for higher capacity disks. Sony are making noises about it being a "media center"-type device, but that's all they are at the moment, noises

There are lots of rumours, many of them claiming some legitimacy (claims of leaks from games authoring houses and the like). Just read it all with a pinch of salt & a wry smile, and wait until we hear something concrete from Sony themselves, which may not be too far away ... but which will be overhyped.

If you want to talk any more about next-gen consoles, start another thread. Keep this up and I'll lock this one down.

Ian.

Doesn't seem as big a difference in real life. Look, the Mini is just a half inch smaller in Length and Width, and virtually the same thickness. I was expecting flash-player sized small. That's a good size.


Says you. I have real-world experience with both & to me there is a genuine difference. If you want "flash-player small" then that's what the iPod Shuffle is for - lets be realistic with our comparisons, shall we ? Sheesh.

Ian.


Well, how was I supposed to know Apple wasn't a wizard that could shrink a hard drive to a really nice size?

And yeah, I'm totally getting the shuffle.

If you want 20+ gigs of storage then iPod is the way to go, but for micro sized MP3 players Nothing beats the Zen Micro. (I ought to know, I have one Razz). But if size isn't an issue get a CD player. Wink

See, the site has some good speculation, but some of their stuff is pretty lame... like the $500 price tag. Now, I may not be an expert, but since the previous systems (barring re-releases such as PS1, Slim PS2 and the failed PSX) were $300, I think this one will be too.
