Blu-Ray Player/Game System/Cash Sink

Cost of average Blu-Ray player:
Cost of average game console:
Cost of PS3 (combine Blue-ray cost to console cost and then read)

Think about that. "It's cheap for what you get."
...and you get what you pay for.

My point is: You're not getting a Blu-Ray player for 600 bucks. You're getting it for considerably less after you factor in all the other parts. More like $300-400. and that leaves the game system coming in at 200-300 dollars.

How good do you think a 300-400 dollar blu-ray player is going to be? If not? How cheaply made is the gaming system?

If a regular blue-ray costs almost double the whole PS3 package, either the player is bare-bones and made of shoddy materials (common for Sony) or all the other Blu-ray players are vastly over-priced, over-hyped and aren't worth the money (very likely).

Either way, Sony is cutting HUGE corners somewhere in this thing.
PS2 had one of the worst DVD players on Earth. Why? Because it was an add on. A secondary feature. Only now the secondary feature over-shadows the main event!

PS3 is made to appeal to gamers looking for an image-enhancing system. The flashier and most expensive = the best.

PS3 is doing so badly and is such a nasty mess, that most game companies have already pulled out of exclusive deals and taken their games multi-platform because of the orgasm of bad ideas, practices and ridiculous greed of Sony.

Sony fanboys praise the system as being the most powerful despite the lack of good games.
Which would hold more value if these same fanboys didn't claim that "power wasn't everything" last generation, when the PS2 was weaker than XBox (and the same for XBox fanboys)but had better games.

Sorta proves they really don't have any particular qualifications for best system, other than "Sony/Microsoft made it"
The PS3 is like a nice car that comes with an airplane.
You want the car but, you have to buy the airplane and the airplane costs way more than the car. Then you need an airport to use it (Hi-Def TV)
The extra feature overshadows the primary concern.
Sony has marketed the PS3 as a computer system.
The problem is, Sony already makes computers! I could buy a Vaio cheaper and do more with it.

Sony's newest system.

The PlayStation 3, will use Blu-Ray discs as its media format. The discs can hold up to six times as much data as current-generation DVDs. It will also support CR-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. It also confirmed the machine would be backward-compatible all the way to the original PlayStation. It will also have slots for Memory Stick Duo, a SD slot, and a compact flash memory slot. It will also sport a slot for a detachable 2.5 inch HDD somewhat similar the Xbox 360's.

Out of the box, the PS3 will have the capability to support seven Bluetooth controllers. It will also have six USB slots for peripherals--four up front and two in the back.

Sony also laid out the technical specs of the device. The PlayStation 3 will feature the much-vaunted Cell processor, which will run at 3.2 Ghz, giving the whole system 2.18 teraflops of overall performance. It will sport 256mb XDR main RAM at 3.2 Ghz, and have 256MB of GDDR VRAM at 700mhz.

Sony also unveiled the PS3's graphics chip, the RSX "Reality Synthesizer based on Nvidia technology. The GPU will be capable of 128bit pixel precision, 1080p resolution, some of the highest HD resolution around. The RSX also has 512mb of graphics render memory and is capable of 100 billion shader operations and 51 billion dot products per second. It also has over 300 million transistors, larger than any processor available commercially today. It will be manufactured using the 90nm process with 8 layers of metal. The RSX is more powerful than two GeForce 6800 Ultra video cards, which would cost roughly $1000 total if bought today.

To show off the PlayStation 3's graphical brawn, Sony showed several game demos, including an Unreal 3 tech demo of what appeared to be Unreal Tournament 2007. In what must come as a relief to developers, Epic Games' Tim Sweeney was on hand to vouch for the PS3, saying it was "easy to program for" and that Epic had received its first PS3 hardware two months ago. He proved the tech demo was real time by showing it again and manipulating the camera and zooming in.

The PlayStation 3 will also sport some hefty multimedia features, such as video chat, internet access, digital photo viewing, digital audio and video

Maybe the most powerful next-generation videogames console also the MOST EXPENSIVE. I won't pay $600 for a videogame console...
Mike: Dude!!, I've wasted $600
Bob: Oh really?, a new car >: D
Mike: No, in a PS3
Bob: God takes pity of you...

A much cheaper alternative to the Xbox 360 due to the fact that you don't have to buy a $20 dollar charging kit, a $50 a year online membership, a $200 dollar obsolete HDDVD drive, and it takes standard HDD's compared to the Xbox 360's Microsoft drives. You save a lot of money buying a PS3.
Person 1: I just bought a PS3 and it's got all the features you spend hundreds on for your 360, but standard!
Person 2: Well, my Xbox 360 has the RROD! Your PS3 doesn't have that!
Person 1: Ya, but my PS3 isn't a Microsoft product so it wouldn't.

PS3 ~ Pros. ~ Awesome graphics, free online, no RROD, made my Sony, backwards compatible, sleek model.

PS3 ~ Cons. ~ Slightly unstable online.

PS3 ~ Exclusives(Good ones only) ~ Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance, Resistance 2, SOCOM: Confrontation, Killzone 2, Little Big Planet.


Xbox360 ~ Pros. ~ Stable online, large online community.

Xbox360 ~ Cons. ~ RROD, pay for online (in the long run, you end up paying more for 360 than PS3), made by Microsoft.

Xbox360 ~ Exclusives(Good ones only) ~ Halo 3, Gears of War, Gears of War 2.

You decide which one is better.

*Tommy and Timmy are both PS3 owners.*

Tommy: Hey Timmy, wanna hear a joke?
Timmy: Sure.
Tommy: Xbox360.
*Timmy dies of laughter*

A game console that was created by Sony. It's pricy and is still in competition with the xbox360. The uniqueness of it, however, is that such a hated console contains a Blu-ray drive.
Dude, did you just buy a PS3 yet? Mine rocks!

A reasonably priced console (considering it's hardware and features) that people only bash because they're too poor to buy one for themselves. Said poor people may also try to use the now irrelevant argument that the 'PS tripple' has no games, which is funny considering that the PS3 has more exclusive releases this year than the 360.
Guy 1: man i wish i had a PS3
Guy 2: me too, but my family can only afford a shitty 360 arcade bundle
Guy 1: same here, mine already broke and i had to send it to MS. I've got nothing to do!
Guy 2: Wanna go on the internet and try to bash it??

The PS3 is a gamesystem that is the most hated of any other system (watch i will get so many thumbs down) because it cant be bought by most because its $600. Though the graphics( with the HDMI cord) is a bit better than the XBOX360 even with out it its better. I see advantages of Xbox 360 cheaper good games but the PS3 is a better system. Honestly I dont give a crap about how it looks as long as its better plus I like the look. Plus its got the blu ray.
Stop hatin the PS3 it better get over it.
If I had the money Id get the PS3 but I'll settle for the XBOX 360
