    Here's the Gamespot article:
    http://www.gamespot.com/news/6149552.html

    Yes. Sony is using the same idea Microsoft used. They're selling two models of the Playstation three. One will be a premium system and the other will be a core system.

    <div class='quotetop'>(PS3 Details)</div><div class='quotemain'>Core system:
    Price: $500 USD (without considering tax) Insane price!
    20 Gigabyte hard drive
    No Memory Stick/SD/Compact Flash inputs.
    No built in Wi-Fi capabilities
    No HDMI output

    Premium system:
    Price: $600 USD (once again, without considering tax)
    60 Gigabyte hard drive
    Memory Stick/SD/Compact Flash inputs
    Wi-Fi capabilities
    HDMI output</div>

    Memory cards: They're done with memory cards... kinda. Memory cards just won't be exclusive to the console. The PS3's "memory cards" will be Memory Stick/SD/Compact Flash inputs. Howeber, the Core PS3 will not even have support for those memory devices. Sure, you can still save games to the hard drive.... but what are you supposed to do if you want to play with your save file at a friend's house? You're out of luck if you have the Core PS3!

    Controller: It has been announced that the PS3 controller will have a motion sensor, but no vibration function.
    The vibration function was in the PS2 controller, so why not the PS3 controller? "vibration itself interferes with information detected by the sensor."
    That's not the only reason though.
    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>The removal of vibration could also have something to do with the lawsuit won by Immersion Technologies, which sued Sony for copyright infringement based on the rumble feature in PlayStation controllers. Microsoft faced a similar suit, but settled out of court.</div>

    And I wonder.... just where did they get the idea to put a motion sensor in the PS3 controller? I seem to remember Nintendo saying something about the Wii controller having a motion sensor. It would be interesting if Nintendo sued them this time.

    Price: Completely insane. Most people can't afford to spend so much money on a console. It's an especially bad move because the Xbox 360 is cheaper, plus the Wii is bound to be cheaper than both systems.

    Look at this excerpt from a Wikipedia article.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Saturn#P...the_marketplace
    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>The Saturn was launched almost four months ahead of schedule in North America and Europe. This was announced at that year's E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) where Sega representatives were engaged in a public relations battle with Sony. This surprise move resulted in very few sales due to the USD$399 price of the system, versus the announced Playstation launch price of USD$299, and the lack of available software at launch.</div>
    Will Sony be like the Sega Saturn?

    According to this MSN poll, many people are not happy about the PS3's price tag.

    Gage, you couldn't be more wrong on that first part of your post. You haven't seen the Wii's graphics, have you? The Wii's looking pretty damn good. And do you realize how much the Wii will cost compared to the other consoles? That alone will get a lot of people to buy it.
    I'm sure the PS3 will sell better when they decide to drop the price (that might be when I get one)... but how long will it take them to do that?

    So since you hate Nintendo...you're going to pay 300-400 dollars more for a craptacular system that's probably going to be almost as buggy as the Xbox 360 now that Sony's taken the time to make all these adjustments before launch. Not to mention software titles will now be in the 60-70 dollar range, as opposed to the same 40-50 range a LOT Of nintendo wii games will have o__o

    whats with everyone being so brainwashed that they go and hate a certain system/company just because they got their heads so far up the other companies? I mean, if you don't like nintendo, that's great and all, but there's no point in making fun of them and stuff.

    What is it that you don't like about Nintendo? Do you think they don't have enough mature games?
