IGN peels the packaging of PS3 layer by layer. Check out this image gallery to see PlayStation 3 laid bare!
Does the controller have a slot for the headset? Does the console come with a headset? I would hate to have to buy a wireless bluetooth headset to game with, those are expensive. I heard the PS2 wired headset will work, but you have to plug it in the console. This means I will have a wireless controller and wired headset connected to my console. Boy I wish Sony would say something about this.
Wouldn't it make sense for them to release a Bluetooth headset?
do i spy an hdmi cable in there?
No Component cables thats crap hi-def and next gen starts with them but no component cables thats come to Sony's defense all you want but thats a load of sh*t
Most people say that no one has HDTV's. Plus, if you had component cables for your PS2 then you can use those. Do you have an HDTV? PLus those cables are cheap to buy anyways at EB or Gamestop. Always someone complaining....
Ok I am all for anything showing the playstation 3 in all its glory but this is getting ridiculous. I want video's of people playing, turning it on, putting the disc in, watching a movie, playing with the damn thing!!!!! A little frustrated I want my PS3 now. Im sorry people I shouldn't be loseing it I get mine in 23 days other people have to wait way longer so disregard my ranting and raveing
Thats not a PS3 thats a Blu-ray movie player.
Your name says it all about the PS3. Sony loves you and thanks you :)
Do I spot some burned games, :|. There is hope for the PS fans
OMFG ITS F**ING BEAUTIFUL ! I WANT MY NOOOOW ! GIMME GIMME GIMME. but i'm from europe so i have to wait a couple of months more :'(
Guys this is not what you get when you get your PS3. By that I mean the cables not the games duh. The HDMI cable is not part of the package that is just for the guys that are getting to test the system. Sony really wants to make sure they use HDTV HDMI instead of basic connections.
I already ordered my HDMI cable 10ft for $23 so I have everything I need to play my PS3 on launch.
about no stinkin cable, that my fellow ladies and gents is a peice of art! I want someone to pop the hood so bad... I bet we'll find a wonka ticket inside..
oh don't get me wrong this is like watching your brand new car roll out of the show room and as you walk to touch it you hit the frecking glass wall that's blocking you from graspping it.
That babe sure looks good, oh my!
i know you PS3 guys are getting excited. time is almost here.
when i unwrapped my 360 it had that "new smell" to it. you know what i mean? felt like a little kid again opening a preasent. lol
Haha, I know what you mean. It's always exciting getting something new, especially a new piece of cutting edge technology. My wife is definitely not understanding why I'm so excited about the launch day, but dreading it at the same time as I don't want to stand in lines for hours. I'm still hoping to get a pre-order online somehow.
Cool to see what's in the box for the propotype, but wanting to see some direct feed videos of those games that they have in there.
I still remember that "NEW SMELL"
That new smell.
I knew a HDMI cable was not included, but you mean to tell me Sony did not even give us a set of COMPONENT cables !!!!
Oh well, looks good. I know FOR SURE it will be a friggen NIGHTMARE to keep the finger prints off (and penis prints judging from some of the reactions I have read so far .. hahahaha)
Will have to invest in windex I guess.
sorry no the componet cables are included but the HDMI's are not. I was just replying to a post someone made about seeing them included in this package.
Argggg my bad sorry didn't pay much attention to the question and think about what I said. You are only getting the basic connections like you did with the PS2 and PS1. Again sorry about that. I will try to pay better attention next time, I'm kinda sick right now and work has been hecktic all day.
I don't see any component cables. All I see is a single Video VGA (yellow) and L and R audio "RCA" cables (red and white).
I hope FOR TESTING REASONS they gave these guys a 2nd controller. Other wise I can see fist fights starting.
composite is included. if you have component for your ps2, you can use those. component is NOT included.
RCA.. are component cables. (included)
I'm sure the guys at IGN had a "ooh thats a shiny black" gasm..
it's composite. component is the cable with red, blue, and green. red, yellow, white is composite for standard def tv. there was an article posted already on this site that explained no component, and here's a link to ign's article about what is included. http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
You can use your PS2 cables, if you have them. I have s-video and component, so at least I don't have to buy new ones.
Did anybody notice the Joysticks Missing something?
The PS button in the middle where is it? something smells foul and i don't trust this sh1t.
and the games are on plain blu-ray discs? bootleggers heaven.
there is no "guide" button on the controller, yet it has the semi-triggers on the shoulder. wonder if they changed it again.
well it is just a prototype it might not be the finished controllers.
with the ps3 standing behind the stuff, it looks like it might be there between the analog sticks. i can't remember if it was at the top or bottom of the controller from the past photos.
Yah the guide button missing was just a prototype before Sony found out about the 360's guide button.
If you guys would stop and maybe think about what you're seeing, you'd realize that in all the pictures the left analog stick is covering where the button should be.
But if you just look at the picture with the controller still in its plastic wrap, you can see the button.
Hate to break up the Guide Button Missing Argument here, but i dont know if you guys are blind or what but if you look at the pic where the controller is still in the wrapping, then youd see a button in the middle of the controller, look very closely, its there. And yea, in the other pics, the left ananlog stick is in the way of it. So its there, no problem there guys. If you still need help, ill try and get a better pic of it.
Where on my entertainment stand will that sit? The PS3 is huge. You got to clear out half your room to fit that thing in it... The PS3 will be an overheating POS.
that thing's barely bigger than a 360
now the wii, that's a refrigerator lol ;)
Wasn't Ken saying the 360 was freaking large?
Now this thing is larger then the 360 and suddenly no one cares about it anymore?
Damn man the thing is so big you need to build a new house for it!
it should fit just nicely on maddens raiders ego.
"That's because the P3 is made for people with jobs and who don't live in brick $hithouses next to the railroad tracks you lozers. Don't be mad cause your XBOX2 looks like last years dried up crusty, dog turd.
This is "F R E S H." Hell if you come over to my house I'll even let you touch it - I know you want to...!!!
Roll that beautiful P3 footage...!!!!!! "
So how has life been in the "$hithouse"? The Xbox was bigger than the PS2 so i guess that means that all the Playstation fans must be to poor to afford a big console, so the PS3 would definitely be to much for you to afford. Have fun starring at that price tag for the next 10 years.
It's always amazing how stupid some people comments are. It's like they don't even know what the current generation has been up to for the past five years!
You have to include the Xbox 360 power brick if you're comparing sizes. With that in the equation, the Xbox 360 is much bigger, and much louder.
Andy that's bull. It's what you see. The powerbrick is behind whatever the TV stands on.
Visible is the console. And the PS3 is just big, were Ken was first laughing of the sizes of the 360 they build a dinosaures themselves.
Stop trying to defend it's big. Sony just pwned themselves
Of course you would say it's bull. I say it's not. The Xbox 360 powerbrick is external, the PS3's is internal. Both should be included if we're talking about weight and size of each console.
Who the hell cares how big any of them are??? Do you complaining fanboys live in cardboard boxes? I will have both of them sitting vertically on my entertainment stand without any problem. My 360 will be pimping the bad arse GOW faceplate and the PS3 hot gloss black baby!. Gonna be sweet!
while you biatches cried over the cables, i noticed that one of the demo games laid on the table sais "Motorstorm Rain", I guess that confirms that there will be levels with rain effect. Should make for a muddy ride.
i must say its kind of big but shes a beauty :)
On the Side pics You still can't see the Ps guide button cause it goes in the middle Of the start and select buttons and it not there. So this ain't no mystery.
Aww. No need for names now. Did I upset you and your feeble mind?
The PS button is slightly below the start and select which is right where the left analog stick covers in those photos. Regardless of this fact, the picture with the controller still plastic wrapped shows the button anyway. Here's a nice high-resolution picture of the controller for you so you know where the PS button is:
yeah ok. thats not the Same Controller.
reminds me of 1980's VCR's when they first came out
but obviously much more powerful.
This is my gift to you all. Wow, this is Sony's marketing scheme rolling out of the door. The President of EA said Sony was good at it, well they are. My purpose for telling this is not to stir wars but to excite people. Only the people buying a PS3 should watch it or them. No more waiting. Go to www.playb3yond.com
click on the word smarter or capacity and be prepared to enjoy. Have fun guys like Jin, Dj, and many more Just go ALREADY.
Thanks! that was a sweet website..
The back end of that thing looks like a beast. I love inputs, I am a guy after all. All those cables laid out, reminds me of getting a new toy at christmas.
But what was the cable that had gold connectors?
There was a mini-usb, I saw that, and the rca cable, and the ethernet cable, and the power cable, which looked kinda cool, but the ather cable, what was that??
Does anyone know?
I think the final package will be alot nicer, with booklets and pamphlets and stuff, and everything wrapped nicer than in plastic bags. And the games were just a bonus.
headset and component cables? No 720p/ 1080i out of the box. Now I have to spend $600 + $20 + $60 just to game in HD. Way to go Sony. Man that price drop will be good.
