This video shows you what the controller menu looks like and what you can do with the Playstation button on it.
I'm surprised over how cheap the interface looks. It's like a bad clone of the 360 interface, they really have no shame...
You think they stole the Cross Media Bar? You do realize that they've had that thing since before the 360 came out.
Depending on who's missing what here...
When you hold the Guide button down on 360, the options it gives you are "turn off controller" and "turn off console" with options to select with A or hit B to exit. Look at what happens when you hold the PS3 button again and see if you spot any similarities at all.
Or maybe that the Guide button is not only what connects the controller to the console but also powers on the console if it's off? Still not seeing similarities?
Calderra: Jenzo talked about the cross media bar. You put some other irrellevant to the mix. Similarities there is, they both have controllers, and PS had that before the XBOX. Sony even had a console before Microsoft. A good feature is worth copying if possible. Everybody does that and I mean everybody.
Having the same thing as PSP is kinda lame, but whatever
Another game that has to be loaded to HDD. Nice long load time to. I love it.
Wow, only 3 morons in the first 5 posts. Not bad for a PS3 story on this site.
Anyone else find the 1080P screen interesting? That means that you must use a TV with HDMI, not component and no cheaper more readily available computer monitor option and even more interesting is the fact that it says that the PS3 is already implementing the digital rights management thing that HD-DVD and Blu-Ray decided to hold off on. That will most likely cause problems for anyone with an HDTV with HDMI that is not less than two months old.
That was boring.
You are on to something. What is with the load game to HDD thing. Man if it uses like 4gigs like rr7 just think after 10 games, dlc, and demos your HDD will be full.
here's my share,
Yes, the controller shares many similarities between the 3 new consoles for this generation, it is also missing the rumble feature that many look forward to, and yes we are all glad they got rid of the "boomerang" design they had in the beggining ... however, the 360 controller also connects by just pressing the (X) button, and it does it just as fast, judging only by this video, it is also possible that when and if you loose signal, you have to press both to "re-sync" the console to the controller. Also, the PS3 Cont. does seem to have similarities as far as function is concerned, for the fact that you do have to hold the button to shut off both the console and the controller and also to exit the game.
Until we experience the final product we aren't uncertain on facts, we are only judging based on videos and media ... for the time being I can only say that the 360 came out a yr ago with the console, and it has had many cool features that the competition now shares with them, the Wii also has a "home button" that I'm sure will function similar to the 360 and the PS3...... so yeawh lets not bash on the consoles before they come out.
personally i will not a PS3.
