The statement comes as Harrison was interviewed by British newspaper, The Guardian. He goes on to say that 10,000 developer kits have been shopped to developers; and that is final PS3 hardware.
if they were planning on releasing the thing this year no!?!?!?!?
the only delay was for Japanese consumers. everyone else were scheduled to get it Nov. anyway. So i don't know what all of this big delay talk is about.
MS should have delayed their console for a few months in order to fix those first wave of 360 with overheating issues.
i rather wait several months vs. get a rushed one and deal with inevitable issues.
I guess they were just trying to find out if those rumors regarding Asustek mass producing consoles in end of June/July was true or not. Not surprising either way. Good to know though that the 10,000 dev kits spoken of are final kits with final controllers and all.
special, the 360 overheating problems were unseen because it was a factory error of leaving on a thin aluminum foil strip on the processor. MS made the right move shipping in November. An extra month wouldn't have made them change hardware plans just let them stockpile more 360s.
Sounding good, Cant wait till launch day.
good to hear, good to hear.....
So weres the final specs then,i want to know whats the rsx specs, the final speed of the cell,the final specs of the beta ray,come on sony tell us.This tell us nothing.....
PSZero and Beta Ray.... we have a mini-TheMART in training here. :)
If you don't like the news, then don't comment. Don't flame because you think that final specs should have been released. Plus, you know you'll be complaining when final specs are released anyway, so it wouldn't be any different for you.
They havent changed dumb@$$!
So DG then tell what the RSX specs are
So it is still the Nvidia 7900?
Ah that's why they keep it quiet! They know on paper it can't make up to the 360 GPU. That's why they hold it back
Ok Sony, can I be the first to get the first console out of the manufacture???
Yeah and I am the pope and the moon is made of cheese. Not too mention that I dinner with aliens every night and my sh*t turns in real gold overnight
Come on Sony who is believing you on anything anyway anymore???
you are a total moron. you can do what you want, but please dont offense all ppl with your arrogancy.
Should I give you multiple things they lied on in the last years or will you just be fair from now on.
You know better also my friend, but you just won't admit it.
Anyway, I will believe Sony in things when I see them. Like Killzone 2 after CGI 2005 not to be seen again. So I guess untill we see ingame footage it has been not so wise to make up footage and say it's ingame.
Same with Motorstorm, the CGI was great and the ingame footage we just see is, well allright but nothing close to what they said it should be.
2 x HDMI?
1080p for all games? (only one game, a demo, should be in 1080p, the rest is in same resolution as the 360 is, 720p)
3 x Gigabit Ethernet ports? Where did they go?
The Cell could do without a GPU? Urm yup
Release in spring? Nope. Release this Christmas? Maybe. Released 10.000 developper kits? Could be. Final PS3 hardware? Well I hope so for them almost 3 months before their release. But why hasn't anyone drop the specs then from the GPU untill now? Quit easy for a developper to look it up in the system.
All strange facts don't you agree? I think you're the bigger moron then me, I am giving you facts and you keep putting your fingers in your ears and leave that plate before your head
it`s coming hard...lol I keep saying TGS september is gonna be the turn around ..wait and see!!
thats are good news, i cant wait for the ps3 !!!
And isn't it great, Gears of War will be sold 5 days before PS3 launch.
Imagine that. Gears of War running on demopods and then Genji 2 is shown. Mmmhhhh difficult to choose what one should buy... Verrrryyy difficult
remember, GOW doesn't have the giant enemy crab. so i dont know, Genji 2 has the edge there.
Gears of War is a great game and all, but you honestly think that Genji 2 is going to be the premiere PS3 launch title? Resistance, Warhawk, Motorstorm, etc should be able to hold their own as excellent launch titles. With the rumor going around about a possible MGS4 at launch or new Devil May Cry, the tables may be turned on MS.
MGS4 won't be @ launch for sure. That would be the only game that can compete with Gears of War in name. But that's all. Period
Its really funny how sony have kept the pszero specs so tigh lipped,if they were so amazing u would think they would be shouting them out from the roof tops,ive not heard 1 thing about the rsx gpu for months now,why plz inlighten me,the same goes for the cell chip to,so whats the script with that is it going to run at the speed sony have been saying or what.Come on to [email protected][email protected][email protected]
Sony doesn't trickle out information like MS or do silly "viral marketing" campaigns that are supposed to feed anticipation. Then when the big announcement is made, everyone lets out a collective yawn such as with the Gears of War big announcement, which was nothing big as it was already announced to be released in 4th quarter of 2006. I guess it's big that they're releasing it 5 days ahead of the PS3 launch, but didn't everyone already figure that it would be released to combat the PS3 launch?
Sony has always been one about keeping it's secrets back until it chooses to release them all at once, not piecemeal like MS.
you mean M$ telling us and showing us what the final product we are considering as a purchase is.
i don't see what the big deal would be on telling us what the final specs are.
as a future buyer of the PS3...don't you want to know? i don't understand.
we knew what the 360 was well before purchase, and i was very thankful for that...how can you turn that into bad?
This is great come november PS3 will be here and it will dominate over the farsacil competition that is XBOX 1.80. I can't wait to see all those jealous Xbox 360 owners faces, finally they will just stfu, but hey i odn't thk they will instead they will jump over to Sony and brag about it, proably give it a bad name like the 1.80, but hety Sony rules!
Who cares about gears of war, everybody will be focussed on the PS3 launch and the amazing games comming out 4 that. MS r so stupid if they thk that 1 game could affect the launch, fact is people pre-order these consoles; so ms can take there gears of war and and point it else where!
You know who cares?
People who are in the shops with demopods playing Gears of War or... Genji 2
Giant Enemy crabs or...
Well ofcourse. Empty shelves with a PS3 pricetag of 600 dollars because Sony can't deliver... Or a console that has 160 games including Forza 2, GoW, GRAW, FNR3, Oblivion, Dead Rising, Prey, PGR3, BFME II and more
That's hard! not
god damn that is funny
I seem to recall when MS released the sh*tbox that if they lost 20billion dollars that it would be over they'd quit, so i recommened that u jump to sony now as i'm sure it's almost lost that amount of money !
nope...not even close.
Nope they didn't. Bill has said they get 20 billion to pull it off. They lost 4 billion on the first xbox over total life span. They will be making profit with this 360 in fiscal year 2008 which is starting july 2007 actually.
So wrong you are Sony fanboy
Im waiting on sony to release the PS3 and give me GT5 to play it online - then its another 20 lap to go and i of to make a pitstop.
you said people preordered the ps3, since when, as of right now you CANT preorder, unless you use lik.sang.com. other than that no preorders.I heard they MAY not do it either.sony was THINKING about 150 dollars deposits, but as of now no pre-orders!!!
"sony was THINKING about 150 dollars deposits, but as of now no pre-orders!!!"
Here's the full article,
Now what do you think?
"Paul Jackson, who specialises in consumer technologies for market analysts Forrester Research, says: "You can't overestimate how much negativity there is around the PlayStation 3 in the Web 2.0/blogging space, even among hardcore PlayStation fans. The stories just keep getting worse and worse. They've got a real fight on their hands."
