I'm fine with all of it, but I have to stop pulling off 1000 dollar cell phone bills for each of my cellphones.

$500 USD for the basic version, $600 USD for the premium stuff. They really made it seem like the $100 more was just for 40GB of additional storage, but the $500 version will not include WiFi, a card reader, and HDMI output.

But Sony is innovative right? Sure, let's take a look at the new controllers:

Oh wait! Those are the same controllers, just wireless and with new sensing technology that they obviously came up with first, right? OH WAIT, Nintendo had already stated that their controllers would sense tilt and yaw.

All in all, a great job by Sony for ripping off other company's ideas and the customer's wallets.

I will not be purchasing this console. Infact, by the time this console is released, it's a great possibility that you'll be able to purchase both an Xbox360 and a Nintendo Wii with that amount of money.

I found this out after I left an ps3 party.

The fact of the matter is, Sony has been ripping off other people's tech for a good long while now, and it probably wouldn't be this way had it not been for Nintendo stabbing them in the back.

Back in the Super Nintendo days, Nintendo was going to make a Compact Disc attachment to the SNES in order to give it some new functionality, etc. etc. So, they were torn between Sony and Phillips to make this new CD attachment. Sony was confident that Nintendo would pick them, and they even had an unofficial agreement. But, come CES time (E3 was a dream then), Nintendo announced that Phillips would be the one to manufacture it.

In the end, Phillips never came through, and the big N never got it's attachment. If you look at a SNES, on the bottom is the little port that would fit it.

Phillips and Sony went on to make their own forays into the gaming market. Phillips came out with the notorious CD-I system (famous for being a huge technological and marketing disappointment.)

What did Sony come out with? Badabingbadaboom, you have the Sony Playstation in 1995.

But let's look at it this way, the PS3. WOW! No actual game footage. Just CGI movies. WOW! A complete and utter ripoff of the Wii and X360 controllers! WOW! A complete and total ripoff of the Xbox Live architecture! Isn't that so innovative? Not.

That's about my two cents of it, take it or leave it.

GASP Sony using the controller design of a past console? Yet just modifying it slightly? No Sony would never ever do that.

For reference:

I was expecting something more when the original concept was released: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y17/Evilstanley/17-05PS3Controller.jpg

But no, Sony is sticking to what they know works. And I hope it bites them where it hurts - their sales.

I probably wont get a PS3. I own a PS2...but never use it. The only console I'd but, and am considering buying in the future is an XBox360. It seems like a nice system, but i'm waiting for it to be a bit cheaper (prolly get slashed on the next new competitor release). I also have a few other things to pay for before then.

As for the Wii...ehhh. Revolution was a much better name imo. But i've never been a big Nintendo fan anyways.

I was considering a PS3 until i saw this, I'm severely disappointed with it, $500 for the CHEAP one ugghh i thought 400 for the 360 was alot. Looks like I'm getting a 360.

Just to add some more fuel to the fire. If we are talking about stealing controller ideas check out this:

Sony is likely going with the older looking controller because people like it, It fits very well in hand and has lots of easily accessed buttons. while i think that all consoles are currently a ripoff(well the 360 and the PS3) i dont think i will be using any of them. I'll just stick to my computer and mod my Ps2 controller to work with it.
