and lookat the but ugly controller ......YUCK

i do like the way they;'ve wacked in the mac style disk drive though

I think it looks cool, it is better than the new xbox at least.

Isn't sanity a one trick pony? Rational thought is all you get but when you are crazy the sky is the limit.

They are not that bad. They will take some getting used to but so did the massive xbox controller when it came out.

i think the controller is abit on the extreme side, like the console, but if its campitable with the old controllers i wont be changing, i like the ones i got already...i dont like change, makes u feel old.

It took a while, but once their numbers dropped from 50 down to 8, the other dwarves started to suspect Hungry.

i dunno....i think the new design is quite elegant. will have to reserve judgment on the controllers till i actually have one in my hands, but it looks a bit more ergonomically "correct." the old/current controllers always felt too small to me.

taken out of context i must seem so strange

it is an improvement on the ps2 design, even though its just a curved ps2 with a mac style disk drive

Yes I can bender. Its oozing from every pore... umm


To be honest, I have never liked the playstation controller. I think it makes you feel too much like a velocoraptor. I hated the xbox controller when I first used one, but i really like them now.

I think the new PS looks nice smile looks a bit like a HP printer. but I dont like the controllers... you could have someones eye out!

I don't think I'd want any of them sitting onder my TV (wait, I don't have a TV....)

The PS 3 design is the best yet, but I think the games market is too obsesed with looks and flashy bits. Give me a Nintendo Entertainment System anyday - the games were so good I never looked at the hardware!

The wireless controlers are nice though - I hope they have a dock or something to charge from.

hmmm, the ps3 chipset technology is more powerful than most decently priced personal computers today. So we're talking thousands of dollars of gaming technology all for $400ish when it comes out.

Sony's going to take a hit in hardware but rake millions in sales.

i'm a great fan of consumer equipment which isn't ugly/a design statement in the living room. Considering a large target audience is adults not children's bedrooms it's about time they made something that looks like standard hifi equipment and fits on standard hifi equipment shelves. Sony were debating over making a version of the ps2 that looks like a regular dvd player a few years ago, but it's never happened. My home theatre PC is incredibly boring to look at, but it doesn't look out of place next to a cinema amp, vcr, cd player etc. Maybe i'm just old and sad, but gimicks don't do it for me

xbox360, this winter quater, in time for xmas.

ps3, bout a year-ish, but the graphics/hardware on ps3 smacks xbox - microsoft went for functionability through Live and tivo.

They will probably open at $300-400ish and then drop, maybe cheaper for xbox as it has lesser hardware.

that's a bit of an overgeneralisation isn't it? my HTPC's brushed aluminium and looks like a normal cinema amp (same dimensions). There's thousands of PC cases out there, my company sells from very sexy little aluninium ones that are just a little bigger than a cd drive.

You say you don't like the new xbox but have you seen all the graphics you can have on it? some of them make it look very nice indeed. everything from fractals to imitaition wood. hundreds of styles to match your mood or lounge. wink
but with them al the beauty is within mmmmmmmm
lots of stunning visuals, my friend is a games tester and he has nothing but good things to say about the new PS3 and Xbox
ubbloco

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
