I don't know, but I would not doubt it.

I surely have no plans on getting a 360, but I do have the grill.

I don't see how that poll suggests anything even remotely negative towards the PS3.

Lets see. Almost 8% of people polled plan on getting in on the action at launch. There definately won't be enough supply to cover these at launch.

65% of gamers polled plan on getting one eventually. Sony would be REALLY happy if 65% of their market owned a PS3.

Where's the bad news here?

Sony said as quiet as a slim PS2 which is extremely quiet. We'll have to wait until it's released to really know.

Cell and RSX has some heat issues, possibly causing the downgrade of the clock speed of each in order to play nice with heat...

Final PS3 dev kit information

Quote:


The first interesting point is that the final dev kits run very quietly, and do not produce as much heat as earlier development hardware.

Of course the PS3 will be smaller than the SDK I posted...

The controller is wireless and if it's anything like the PS2 & xbox360 it will be able to do movie playback controls. They will probably sell an optional remote just as past consoles have.

Non gamer question. If I buy the $600 PS3 to play movies on and later decide I want to try out some games, do I have everything I need, minus Gran Torino 3 or whatever.

Well it'll have the std controller which you'll be able to play the games with. For a game like Grand Turismo if you want a racing wheel you'll have to buy one.

Hdbeat just listed hdmi cable not included with the ps3, is that one of the ways Sony is cutting down the cost of the PS3? LOL

Here's a link to back that up. I think for that price it should at least include component cables. I have bought some really cheap HDMI cables, but I wouldn't doubt stores will be pushing them hard and the cheapest I have seen in a store was around $65-$75. Most would be duped into buying the $100+ monsters I would guess.

As I did . But who will get to the store, find out there is no included cable and have to buy one on the spot? Many. Or worse, get it home and find out there are no included cables. They just want it to work and won't wait a couple days for one to come in the mail.

It would be retarded and I highly doubt that will be the case..

What would be retarted? Or be "the case"? That people wouldn't know that there are no HD cables in the box or that there actually aren't any HD cables in the box?

People not knowing= normal
No HD cables in the box= retarded

What you said would be retarded. "find out there is no included cable and have to buy one on the spot? Many. Or worse, get it home and find out there are no included cables. " That has never been done with a Sony console before (probably any console for that matter).

No HD cables is different than what I quoted. I would imagine component cables to be included in the premium but who knows. It will still be playable out of the box even with composite (how the Core 360 ships).

1. It happens all the time...look at the DVD player forums.
2. http://www.gamespot.com/news/6157113.html I'm posting this again just for you.

HD cables "not included". I think it's pretty straight forward. You act like I like this or it's a good thing. I am simply stating that I think for the price Sony could throw in some "ten dollar" HDMI cables. Some will buy more expensive cables at the store that they buy the PS3. I would venture to say the opinion that these big box stores won't sell any expensive HDMI cables on the PS3 launch day is "retarded'.

I said console, not DVD players. Lack of HDMI is not the same as lack of HD cables

I didn't think you meant it literally but my resonse of "retarded" was to the literal. I thought you would have picked that up It would be retarted if it was how you literally wrote it
