Nvidia CEO Confident in PS3

Nvidia's CEO spoke with San Jose Mercury News' Dean Takahashi about how the PS3's inclusion of Blu-ray at the expense of a delay was a "master stroke."
Jen-Hsun Huang said that his company, which is supplying the RSX GPU for the PlayStation 3, is in a good position to ride the success of what he imagines will be a highly-regarded platform.

Takahashi asked if Nvidia "chose the right horse in the videogame war" this time around (Nvidia supplied the GPU for the original Xbox, while rival ATI supplies the GPU for the Xbox 360 and the upcoming Nintendo Wii).

Huang responded, "…I don't think that working with Sony is wrong. There is no way that is going to be wrong. There are many wonderful things that Sony did. I'm excited that they made Blu-ray high-definition storage as a standard part of the PlayStation 3 platform. The first PlayStation had a CD-ROM drive. The PlayStation 2 had DVD. It makes no sense for the PlayStation 3 to use DVDs. ..."

He continued, "To postpone it by a few months so they could include Blu-Ray was a master stroke. When that comes out, it's going to look so much more advanced than last-generation game consoles. I think that was a wonderful call on their part."

Microsoft said there is no reason paying $80 for a game too.

I like Microsofts idea.

If that is your kind of logical thinking, I just would stop trying to have my own thoughts. This sounds if you're braindead and are a talking handdoll of Barbie Ken

Something doesn't have to change just because there is a new version of a console, the next number in line. Something has to change when it is nescessary. ANd it isn't.

Last gen:

98% of all games were between 2 to 3 GB. Even the latest games were. Like Burnout Revenge or Black or name a lot of others

1% was 3 to 5 GB's
1% was over 5 GB's but always under 7 GB.

This gen will be about same rates, but then not on SL DVD but on DL DVD

98% 4 to 5 GB's
1% 5 to 7 GB's
1% larger then 8 GB's

ANd for that 1% that would be, one could use 2 DL-DVD's. No problem. If you'd like to pay up to 100 dollars (Sony stated themselves), but probably an average of 79 or 89 dollars/euro's on a BR game that only uses a small part of it's capacity be my guest.

I hope he is saying that the addition of blue ray was a master stroke...not the delay. lol
