Some Game Price Points now appearing, and as I predicted, the $70 games for Ps3 are there.

But the $95 game???

This is still up in the air though....

Preise von Segas PS3- und Wii-Spielen

31.05.06 - Atari hat Preise von PS3- und Wii-Spielen veröffentlicht, die sich auf die Beneluxländer beziehen. Die Spiele sind von Sega, allerdings übernimmt Atari den Vertrieb der Software in diesen Regionen.

- Sonic The Hedgehog (PS3): Euro 67,99 - $86.25 USD
- World Snooker Championship 2007 (PS3): Euro 73,99 - $93.97 USD
- Sonic Wild Fire (Wii): Euro 59,99 - $75.95 USD
- Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz (Wii): Euro 59,99 - $75.95 USD


Inwiefern die Preise auch auf Deutschland zutreffen, bleibt abzuwarten: Hierzulande regelt Sega den Vertrieb und hat noch keine offiziellen Preisangaben zu den obigen Spielen gemacht.
CLICK (JeuxVideo: 'Les prix des jeux Playstation 3 et Wii')

Atari Publishes all Sega games in germany , keep in mind add about 10 dollars for a game in germany. Which puts Nintendo Wii games about 59.99 pricepoint and PS3 games at a 69.99 pricepoint.

I think it's more FUD and speculation. The European market has always been more expensive and downright screwy anyways.


I will say this: IF it ultimately comes to pass that these HORRIBLE prices become fact? They're begging for a repeat of pre-NES crash of the console videogame market ultimately.

THAT is just absurd.

You're out of your mind if you think that news bit can just be coverted like that. I'll bet you $95 that Super Monkey Ball for the Wii will not retail for $75.95 USD.

Besides defending the PS3, Harrison took time to evangelize the device, which will launch worldwide this November. In particular he said the Linux-based operating system on the console's hard drive will have enough processing power and non-gaming functionalities to render traditional PCs--most of which use a form of Microsoft's Windows OS--moot in the home. "We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other [home] computer functions," said Harrison. "The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC."

If you are a big sony fan, you may want to avoid this link.

Video Game centric article. Big Point, Sony not paying off the bill for Rumble Features in the PS2, and the lack of rumble in the PS3, and what it's gonna cost them.

At e3 they said they JUST started shipping new dev kits(which are still not final hardware) . I'm pretty sure what you saw was not a ps3 playing that video off a BR disc but a VERY high bitrate playing off a Harddrive and who knows what was outputting it. I would bet money on the fact it wasnt an acutal ps3 playing that video tho and I doubt it was coming from a BR disc.

Nobody has seen the PS3 play BluRay movies yet.

So it's all up in the air in that regard.

OMG, PlayStation 3 Controller Spelling Mistake

Kotakuite Oly hit Sony's super swish Ginza showroom, which was not only displaying the PlayStation 3 for all to see, but a glaring spelling error. Instead of "SELECT", the PS3 controller reads "SERECT". Even though Sony's been batting fly balls of late, we're not going to poke fun. That would be rude. Spelling in a foreign language is hard, especially when it's an unusual word like "select".

I'm not Japanese but I do have a minor in the language and will be there next week. But I can tell you that you can't make fun of them because the "l" in Japanese is pronounced like the "r". So the guy doing the translation doesn't think he messed up. Its a rough language to learn man, from personal experience.

I am fairly new to this but didn't the BD fanboys say that HD DVD was DOA? All I WANT is that HD DVD (either BD or Tosh HD DVD) does not become DVD-A or SACD!

Neither rumble nor motion-sensitivity is a big deal for the PS3. And in the end, if Sony loses their last appeal, they will pay. They will pay because in the long run they'd lose far more money by withdrawing the PS2. They will pay, and the PS3 will come out, and it will live or die on its own terms.

PLAYSTATION®3 will be the most advanced computer platform for enjoying a wide range of entertainment content, including the latest games and HD movies, in the home, said Ken Kutaragi, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc. By introducing the next-generation HDMI 1.3 technology, with its high speed and deep color capabilities, PS3 will push the boundaries of audiovisual quality to the next level of more natural and smoother expression on the latest large flat panel displays.

Well, it will have HDMI 1.3, so that in and of itself isn't a lie.

sony lies, all the time

I don't believe one game was running on a real ps3 at E3.. Dev Kits, sure, not a real PS3.

More Sony lies.....
http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/warhawk...new-182473.php

The video shows a Motion Sensing controller with Rumble, running on the PS1 in 1999.

During E3 Sony stated they had to drop rumble cause it wouldn't fit into a controller with motion sensing. (they would have to pay big $$ to immersion to use rumble), or course that's just another Sony lie. Cause motions sensing is REVOLUTIONARY!!!! NOT!

I gurantee not 1 PS3 game was running on an actual PS3. They were at best dev kits.

Sony, sorry, just can't trust them.

Its a great marketing ploy and it generally works in America. If you cant beat the competition (do as Intel and Sony does) market the hell out of it.

Its less a lie and more a PR divergence. Sony can't go "yeah, we pulled rumble out because we did not want to pay Immersion".

They were all Dev kits. Final hardware was only recently tapped out for the CELL and RSX.
