Alright, here's the skinny from E3 as I understand so far:
1 - Controller: No more boomerang. Dual Shock 2 is like the normal Dual Shock controller from the PS2 except it's wireless and has lateral motion sensing, pitch, yaw and roll. (THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR.) Also, the Dual Shock 2 will not include any rumble feedback feature.
2 - Release Date: November 11 in the Japan. November 17 in the US. I vaguely recall a mention of simultaneous world-wide release, but this is close enough.
3 - Pricing: There will be two versions. A $499 version no one will want and a $599 version no one will be able to afford. (I CAN'T PLACE MY FINGER ON WHERE I'VE SEEN THIS BEFORE.)
4 - Versions:
PS3Core - 20GB Hard Drive, USB 2.0 Ports, Ethernet card, Bluetooth 2.0, AV Multi Out, Digital Optical Out
PS3Platinum - 60GB Hard Drive, everything the core has, memory stick, SD, compact flash, 802.11 b/g wireless, HDMI Out

Only if Blu-ray doesn't go the way of Beta-max. Unfortunately, the Playstation 2's DVD playback ability wasn't stellar. There is a good chance a standalone Blu-ray player will be much better than the Playstation 3's drive when it comes to movie playback. I have a PS2, but I own a DVD player too.
Lame, lame, and lame...now I am definitley only getting a Wii - $250 baby...oh yeah!
Stupid Sony and their overpriced crap. No HDMI, wifi, or card reader on the core model? and still $499? $100 more than my 360 Premium...Bwhahahahaha! And people thought Microsoft was crazy for its pricing structure...
Yeah, I don't think so. I didn't even buy a PS2. I did buy an overpriced PSP and sold it a month later on eBay. I have my xbox 360 Premium / My NES and Gamecube (soon to be replaced by the Wii) / My Nintendo DS to get my videogame fix. I don't need no stinkin' PS3!
ya this was a pretty stupid thing sony could of done. It has NO HDMI for the lower system. Which means the blu-ray is pretty useless. Once they release the DRM crap on blu-ray the system will degrade the quality of the picture if you have no HDMI. Bad bad!!
I was really hoping for a better system, no vibration instead you have a rip off of the WII controller (it's not even as functional either!) .. I'm glad I jumped on the MS bandwagon.. 360 is looking a lot better now
I think San Andreas is the last GTA game that Sony had a contract for exclusive release. I'm fairly certain Rockstar will do concurrent releases from now on. Unless someone pays a ton of money for another contract.
All I know is Ive had a reservation for PS3 since January... Im number two on the list, and I will be camping out in front of the Specs to get mine. As far as I know though, my friend and I (the manager of Specs) are the only people with reservations in Miami so far because of the delayed release.
Im putting Nov. 17 on the calander though, and Ill be saving my pennies!
