I am REALLY disapointed here...I know launch consoles are pretty week, but the PS3 has been so overhyped that I guess it is some what of a letdown.
-HDMI-nice to have this.
-Looks great-black finish and glossy case FTW
-zero noise when the system is on
-Motorstorm demo ROCKS!
-"killer app" Resisitance is VERY disapointing, looks like a high def PS2 game. Graphics looked much better in the screen shots. (after playing Gears of War for a week not much looks good) and the 40 person multiplayer turns out to be 40 people running around like chickens with there heads cut off.Lets hope it gets better over time.
-"XMB" the OS sucks compared to the 360. MS is bright easy to navigate and colorfull, the PS3 is plain and clunky. downloading is slow and your stuck on the same screen(come on sony can't you learn from MS???)
-Online-my biggest fears have came true-Sony does not pack in or sell a mic-this turns into 40 player games(Resistance) with zero coperation and other games with NO VOICE SUPPORT AT ALL(Marvel,Ridge Racer, etc....) NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.....
-All launch games in general are week, or bad 360 ports.
-Blu Ray playback at least with Ricky Boby sucks(washed out colors, and no sharpness, no real visual pop) ,now this just could be this title but compared to my Tosh HD-DVD the PS3 looks like my PC dvd player at best
-SIXAXIS-way to light and I really really miss the rumble. I wish sony would have steped up and re-designed the controller, 360's smokes the SIXAXIS
-I guess time will tell with this console, right now its a real big disapointment. Lets hope next year will be better with a revised online plan, and games like MSG4, Motorstorm, and Final Fantasy.
