PS3 Now 'In Full Swing'

Heads-up, PS3 fans! According to sources, the PS3 "has officially entered production". It seems that the PS3 is currently in the works, and hopefully, it won't be too long for fans to get their hands on the much-awaited console.

Phil Harrison, Sony's president of worldwide studios says that production is in full swing, from a developer's point of view; developer kits have been shipped and the controller is also in developers' hands. Apparently, Sony's got everything set, minus some improvements and modifications. The games, too, are also being tested, as many studios already have Blu-ray burners in their PCs.

So, final version of PS3 hardware? Check. PS3 controller? Check. Games? Check. Release date? Errrrm... Soon? Hopefully, we'll know more when Ken Kutaragi gives his speech at the Tokyo Games show on September 22. (PS3)

Interesting
But then again, it has barely begun. Sure Blu-ray is out but both Blu and HD still have their share of bugs to work out and then finally in all its glory, one shall be crowned the dominant format. And until the final console has be released, much of many things said can be deemed as speculation. However, this does not deter the fact that the ps3 will be a great console.

Read closer
Harrison says production is in full swing, from a developers point of view. A developer means software, not hardware.

And yes, there has been talk of Asustek starting up production in Taiwan, but that talk was squashed, not confirmed, by Asustek or Sony.

can't wait
Its about time production went into full swing. This increases my chances of get the ps3 on launch. I'm having fun with my 360 but the ps3 is definitely something i want. Its going to rock.
TheMART  +   2915d ago
I don't believe anything anymore from Sony after all their lies untill I see something in reality. Really they've pushed all their fans too much around

"But it has been all downhill from there. "People in gaming and game publishing are drastically less excited about PlayStation 3 than they were a year ago, and competition is looking much stronger," says David Cole, a market analyst and president of San Diego-based games specialist DFC Intelligence, quoted in The Wall Street Journal.

First to worst

Sony could even go from first to worst. In a research note published on its website, DFC commented: "While it has always been clear that Sony's dominant market share was destined to decline, there now appears to be the distinct possibility the PlayStation 3 could end up third in market share behind both the [Microsoft] Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii (tinyurl.com/rjvo8)."

hmm.?
Mart, you should probably calm down a little bit. Production is in full swing and then finally after you have gotten the ps3, come and tell us all how terrible your experience with it is. Don't you realise that we as gamers are all in someway analysts, so rather than buying into the hype, be patient and when the ps3 comes out, we can then take to truth what is said about the tangible console. Until then, it is pure opinion. Ps3 in my opinion is going to be the best there is.

4.1 got a point
I agree with andthensum but mart you had cited resources but where can i find a poll that was taken to prove that "People in gaming and game publishing are drastically less excited about PlayStation 3 than they were a year ago?" Because I am even more excited now than i was a year ago just because of the fact that the ps3 is in production.

Sony 3rd place i don't thk so!
Just how exactly could Sony finish 3rd, it's a long shot that they would finish second but 3rd, no way. What people are forgetting is that what is said ont his site is purley the opinions of people on this site and there ain't that many people on this site. Fact is if your not a fanboy u will not here all the up's and down's of both consoles, so where does it go from there. Well Sony was the choice last time and far as i'm concerned anyone who buys a console just for the sake of getting one will buy, Soony because it's the cool thing to have, i always heree people in the shops and people i know all have ps2's apart from the xbox fanboys and believe me any1 who has an xbox is a fanboy! So my money is on Sony!
STFU XBOX U SCARED  +   2915d ago
That's what i mean!
You know what is funny, nearley every1 on this site is a fanboy of either console, ok i mean a majority not all, but when a news story is submitted it's ussually inaccurate or just rumours and all the comments start to get made and tthey make it sound like it stands for the majority of the people playing games, (millions) Correction it stands for like 30 fanboy opinions making it sound that way!
andthensum  +   2915d ago
lol... you might have a point
I recently joined this site only because i felt there was an inbalance. So many of the 360 fans bash the ps3 which is not even out yet. But they proclaim from some divine revelation that ps3 is going to suck depsite the pros of the console. This to me is a discriminatory approach to handling this whole affair. I myself, own a 360 but i still want to own the ps3, which i feel is going to be a very good console, if not the best (judging from how well sony did with the ps2. and excluding the handheld because nintendo alredy had that on lock).
Lucidmantra  +   2915d ago
Well the PS3 fanbois such as gametime and a number of his other screennames have proclaimed it to be the hand of god coming to earth. I think it will be a console that plays games, some good some bad. Just like the 360 and Wii. I think SOny will have problems just like they have their last 2 consoles. Sony, Microsoft are not perfect. The only company that seems to release solid consoles is Nintendo.

In fact, you seem to be the one stalking him. The way you kept record of his comments is in fact disturbing. Maybe you shouldn't take this forum so serious.

It's about time some1 bashed those Xbox Elitists for moaning on about how great there console is and how sony will suck. Let me tells u's the only console that sucks is Microsoft's Xbox 360, why because it has an ignorant fanbase, man it's worse than the N64 fanbase and they were bad, but hey N64 sucked compared to the Ps1 and it had twice the graphics capabilities! Xbox doesn't suck, just it's ignorant elitist fans who no nothing about nothing, just talking BS! I bet they r so upset by this that my post will get deleted!

And remember responding to them you are probibly giving him the attention and response he was looking for.

Can you remember how Sony fanboys bullsh*tted around when the xbox came out on every site there was? That was not fair, because the xbox was just the stronger console.

This time around there are enough Sony fanboys like gametime, ssj, achira, nj and god who knows more that flame and don't give facts. I can garantee ya, this time around the PS just has weird choices made by Sony. Fact's are giving by people like the Land of Sand, The Real Deal, Lucid, me others. Ofcourse, sometimes sarcastic, sometimes one looses itself in a flamewar when one starts.

BUT there is a difference in giving some facts, discuss and so on, and based on these shortcomings to be sarcastic then the Sony fanboy babies cry sometimes, like again gametime, achira, ssj, nj are doing. Also like having multiple accounts like nj had 25 or so to vote lame on every 360 article and cool on any sony article.

So if you are really into stopping your flamewar, try to get the fanboys of the brand and console you like best to control, not the other side. It'll always start off in flaming. So go get gametime, ssj, achira and the others if you're really into stopping anything please

the 360 does not suck, its just seems like someone is always trying to bash the progress of the ps3 despite its undeniable potential. as a result, some feel that rather than hear ps3 sucks they'll return the favor and say the 360 sucks which is ok because it's clearly their opinion.
TheMART  +   2915d ago
Well where should we begin.

The cell that only has 2 threads? Lots of raw power but it can't do much with it?

Urm the standard GPU that Sony had to buy late in process first they thought Cell could take over even GPU tasks but they found out it couldn't? So a standard GPU, that's why the spec's aren't out officially because they can't match the 360 GPU spec's...

Let me think... Because they said with the PS3 we would get in the REAL HD area? With 1080p? While ALL games are in 720p actually? Only the GT4 HD smugged up PS2 DEMO in 1080p on last E3?

Maybe because lying about 2 x HDMI, 3 x Gigabit Ethernet ports and the real reason why BluRay is integrated isn't cool?

Could be about BR discs/games that will cost 79,89 up to 100 dollars/euro's as stated by Sony themselves and other consoles games will be 50 to 60 dollars/euro's?

Have to go on? Dev's that say the PS is a pain in the ars to program for? It costs 1,5 times as much to produce on it? No free 4 x FSAA because it doesn't have the 10 MB extra fast embedded ram on GPU as the 360 and even the Wii have?

Reasons enough I could go on for hours NO RUMBLE or even a day. But I guess to convince anyone we should wait till 17th november. When the 360 demopods with Gears of War and Forza 2 are running besides the PS3 demopod with Genji 2. And let's hope that because of bad yields 10 to 20% on Cell it runs on more then 3 cores and no core breaks down while playing
jsuch2002  +   2915d ago
Yep
I agree dude. I am a 360 fan like I said. I agree that 360 people have no idea how the PS3 is going to be. I think it will be good. Im just saying your as bad as they are. The 360 is a great console just as the PS3 will be
slugg  +   2915d ago
Hmmm.
If you read the article, the full version referenced in the first post, you realize that the excerpt here is COMPLETELY MISLEADING. See, both sides can do it. I am a manager at Gamestop, and the one thing that I can tell you is that "Because of doubts relating to the launch of the Playstation 3 and the probability that stock will be EXTREMLY limited, we are NOT planning any pre-order/promotional strategy for the Playstation 3 at this time. We do, however, have deals in place with software title publishers for ALL systems this holiday, and packageing details/promotional materials for Xbox 360 will be coming shortly. Also, we have plans to work with Nintendo on the Wii launch with a limited pre-order scheme as well as extensive, store-wide promotional materials through the entire lauch phase." This is in response to an email to Corporate because of the huge amount of interest our customers are showing recently in pre-ordering the Playstation 3. The unfortunate thing is, as the Xbox 360 launch showed, systems in short supply can make people huge money on Ebay, and many of the people interested in PS3 pre-orders want a system only to sell it...
andthensum  +   2915d ago
um slugg..
i'm pretty sure this is old news and i'm also certain there was an article on this. We also know that it is strategical of Gamestop to do this because of what happened when the 360 launched. But one thing i want to know is the source of your quote. And then what this has to do with the article. Like what exactly is your point?
USMChardcharger  +   2915d ago
as an xbox360 owner i can't wait for the PS3 to come about...because when it does WE (gamers)all stand to gain.

there are many games that will come out on both systems...and some of those games are on delay for or waiting for the PS3's release.

hurry up sony...you are holding up the gaming world!
every one is tapping their foot ready to go.

*$$$$$*he reason why peopleare saying the PS3 sucks.*$$$$$*
When a console maker liks sony, Sega, Microsft, and Nintendo release a console the price should reflect the quality the Jaguar and 3DO came out and there was significant graphical and game play enhancements to justify the cost. The PS3 is using a HD DVD player to justify the larger price margin. But as a game console it will do no more than the completion and given the history it will be capable of less. So I feel the PS3 will be fun hell the damn Atari was and is still fun but nothing not even brand loyalty can justify a $600.00 console. I am a parent I would never spend $600.00 on a toy and that is how the general public see a game console a toy. The PS3 has been shrouded in lies and rumors I as a Sony PS fan am skeptical myself if your not you’re a fan boy. If you have owned any console before you should not be a fan boy if Microsoft was to ever release a console that cost more than Sony’s but had no credible advantage I would not buy the console. I own a 360 because it makes since not because I’m in love or am brand loyal.

THAMMER1  +   2915d ago
The cell is new carbon tech. but not the same as the PS3's cell
That is why. When you use the cell in medical and data transfer systems is much more effective than in a game console. The separate this new tech. will be amazing in action in a hospital to transfer of share medical records from one sever to the next. The cell is a sever chip. The 360 uses the same chip archtecture as the Mac G5 the strongest home PC every made. The Mac G5 at its strongest uses a quad core but the 360 uses a tri core. The tech. Is current gen as chip architectures is concerned but still capable and powerful. The cell in the PS3 will not be the same Cell that scientist and tech. Gurus are referring too. I know it sounds like hate but it true go to ibm.com and do some research.
JIN KAZAMA  +   2915d ago
The Mart, you said
The cell that only has 2 threads? Lots of raw power but it can't do much with it?

It doesnt only have 2 threads, it has 10.

"In the case of Cell the hardware supports 2 threads on the PPE and one thread per SPE giving you a total of 10 hardware threads. Software threads are not limited so you can have as many of these as you wish, compiler support for software threads on the SPEs are also in development."

read the multithreading paragraph on this link
http://www.blachford.info/c...

I'm not trying to go off on you, but i just think you are mistaken about the threading.
TheMART  +   2915d ago
But as far as my knowledge goes, it works a bit different, you cannot just count them up.

The PPE sets up the tasks for the SPE's. And isn't the PS3 Cell actually made of one PPE and 6 SPE's so called 7 'cores' in total and not 8?

Furthermore, the PPE only has two threads indeed. The SPE's are all communicating through the PPE.

So that's just 2 cores to get the main job done, cut into pieces to the subcores. Doesn't change anything to my story is it actually. The problem stays the same: they're asymmetrical cores, need different compilers for each core it's an @rs to program for.

Furthermore, read this:

"Microsoft has already, by all accounts, won the dev tools battle. Everyone from John Carmack to Hideo Kojima has said that Microsoft's XNA toolchain is superior to the PS3's development environment in terms of getting games out the door quickly. "

"And the content might suffer as well, since you'll never see a PS3 title with more than 256MB of textures at any given time, due to the split graphics and system memory banks. When we announced 512MB of unified memory on Xbox 360, I think all of our game developers (and the artists too) did a little happy dance. It's easier to use and gives developers much more flexibility in how they allocate memory for various resources."

THAMMER1  +   2915d ago
Jin the cell your reffering to is not same as the cell in the PS3
The cell in the PS3 will have 7 threads. I can tell you have done some research but you should be more clear. The cell has about 10 different ahetectures that will be in future use the cell in the PS3 will not be the one you are referring too. The cell you are referring to is the cell mercury that is capable of almost 10 teraflops. The PS3 cell is only capable of 2 teraflops at 3.2 GHz and 1.8 teraflops at 2.8 GHz.
JIN KAZAMA  +   2915d ago

The multithreading, as you can see, is done on the PPE, and the SPE's. All the Cell chips have this type of Architecture, with 1 PPE and 8 SPE's.

F*** off.

360 on the other hand
Has 2 threads per core, making for 6 threads.
JIN KAZAMA  +   2915d ago
THAMMER1 is just
dumb, he doesnt even deserve another response. Thats good though, PS3 fans need more 360 fans like you, to just laugh at.
Thammer1, its all over now, take it like man.

ouch
maybe thammer should go call for backup. Hopefully they'll know what they're talking about.

Ken Kutaragi!!!!
Ok i know for sure that im more excited than this guy. Im lookn forward to 9/22.
JIN KAZAMA  +   2915d ago
Yea, he deosnt make any sense
Ok, the SPE's all can do 1 thread, but he fails to mention the PPE, what a dope.
THAMMER1  +   2915d ago
The Spe's do not use dual symmetry or AMD.
The 360 has 3 dual cores with two threads each 6 threads. The PS3 has 7 SPE's with 1 thread = 7 threads each witch is an independent thread that has to be coded to co -operate with the others. You are still full of lies

Jin, maybe you should let thammer be, if we tell him he's wrong he'll just refer us to ibm.com for everything rather than give us links to prove what he is talking about. I myself can refute much of what he has said right now and i have links to back all of them up. If the need be, i will not hold back.

You were wrong the whole time.

The cell that only has 2 threads? Lots of raw power but it can't do much with it?

It doesnt only have 2 threads, it has 10.

"In the case of Cell the hardware supports 2 threads on the PPE and one thread per SPE giving you a total of 10 hardware threads. Software threads are not limited so you can have as many of these as you wish, compiler support for software threads on the SPEs are also in development."

read the multithreading paragraph on this link
http://www.blachford.info/c...

I'm not trying to go off on you, but i just think you are mistaken about the threading

19.2 - The cell is new carbon tech. but not the same as the PS3's cell
THAMMER1 - 18 Hours ago
That is why. When you use the cell in medical and data transfer systems is much more effective than in a game console. The separate this new tech. will be amazing in action in a hospital to transfer of share medical records from one sever to the next. The cell is a sever chip. The 360 uses the same chip archtecture as the Mac G5 the strongest home PC every made. The Mac G5 at its strongest uses a quad core but the 360 uses a tri core. The tech. Is current gen as chip architectures is concerned but still capable and powerful. The cell in the PS3 will not be the same Cell that scientist and tech. Gurus are referring too. I know it sounds like hate but it true go to ibm.com and do some research.
22 - Jin the cell your reffering to is not same as the cell in the PS3
THAMMER1 - 18 Hours ago
The cell in the PS3 will have 7 threads. I can tell you have done some research but you should be more clear. The cell has about 10 different ahetectures that will be in future use the cell in the PS3 will not be the one you are referring too. The cell you are referring to is the cell mercury that is capable of almost 10 teraflops. The PS3 cell is only capable of 2 teraflops at 3.2 GHz and 1.8 teraflops at 2.8 GHz.

22.1 - No Thammer
JIN KAZAMA - 18 Hours ago
The multithreading, as you can see, is done on the PPE, and the SPE's. All the Cell chips have this type of Architecture, with 1 PPE and 8 SPE's.
This threading will be done on the PS3
