The performance of the PS3 won't justify the $600 price. I would rather get a Xbox 360 and the Wii. Heck, even getting the Xbox 360 and the additional HD-DVD drive won't even cost as much as the PS3.

That's US dollars.

There is a cheaper version for $499 but it isn't worth getting. The hard drive is downgraded 40 gigs to just 20 gigs, there is no built in wi-fi, no flash memory card reader and no HDMI port

Don't waste you're money.

I don't forseen PS3 catching on as much as Xbox 360 did, either way IDC. I used to play console games, but I enjoy controls so mujch more on a PC. and Pcs are WAY MORE POWERFUL.

Its going to be pretty powerful, but I'll be waiting to see how powerful it would be in games. I doubt any difference would be seen in real terms from Xbox 360 to PS3.

Lac3y, I didn't know that, but thats pretty kewl.

Well, once they sort all the games out, it'll do the same as the Xbox 360 does now.

The Xbox 360 could do that though. Its just a load of pixel shaders with the sweat, etc.

The first shot looks pretty fake.

In the graphics department, they have the same power abouts.

If anything, its more in the physics, etc department where PS3 will be better, not graphics.

Except for the formats in terms of disks, etc, the difference isn't that phonominal.

PS3 will have the advantage of course over a higher disk capacity for bigger games (no need for 2 discs on a game for example), or maybe less compressed textures to run straight from the disk, or even from the built in needed hard drive.

Something the XBox 360 developers can't make games to use, because some people won't have one.
So PS3 has hard drive cache uses Xbox 360 just can't have, without affecting some users.

GRAPHICS:

I don't think these will impress me that much for a while though.

I'm too used to 3D rendering now, where the graphics are acable of being alot better than todays games.

Physics, etc on the other hand will. Because its not just graphics that make a game, though sometimes impressive.

Thats why the Wii seems so irrisitable.
