IGN have recently updated the PS3 FAQ with some new info on Sonys next-gen console. Why not click the link below to take a look at IGN's PS3 FAQ....
Here is news from today. IGN gave the price and release date of the Wii before pulling the plug on the story. Here is a link to that story. http://www.gamersreports.co...
this is interesting, you can blame Matt Lee for saying that the "ps3 is only limited to 256ram" 256MB of XDR Main RAM @ 3.2GHz and 256MB of GDDR3 VRAM @ 700MHz, or a total of 512MB for the entire system. The RSX graphics chip can actually use all 512MB of system RAM; it is not limited to the 256MB of GDDR3 RAM.
old news said that at e3 2005
Know we know that the PS3 RSX graphics chip can use all 512MB of system RAM.
but the cell cant.
so does it grill cheese now?
*yawn* you needa be more original and creative with your comments. image of PS3 standing up looking like a refrigerator...instant classic.
lol oh yeah, i forgot it refridgerated stuff too! god damn, the power of the cell.
It's funny how you call the PS3 a Grill when in fact it was your own 360 that went up in flames right? I remember that week you were so pissed off at Microsoft then the week later you were again on MS's nuts. On a brighter side, did they send your xbox back yet? It's been like 3 weeks right?
LOL yes, my drive stopped working. ms replaced my 360 for free out of warrenty. i have had it back for a while now... i think you will find it was PS3 development units that were overheating and melting. ;) (too hot for a fridge... perfect for a grill!)
I know you don't like news that is positive about the PS3, but deal with it. for a long time between you an THEMART all i kept reading is THE RSX GRAPHICS CHIP CAN ONLY ALLOW 256 OF MEMORY.
i have never commented on the RSX.
if u watched the e3 2005 presentation they said that. Its old news
It would be nice if Sony would give some official word on the online service and final specs. I refuse to believe that they are still working on it when launch day is only 3 months away; unless they want people to buy the PS3 and find out on their own.
i agree with you, i don't see any reason why sony don't make a offical statement on the final specs, now that the PS3 is in production. it would clear up a lot of questions from people...
?compatible backwards be it Will Yes. Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 will be ALMOST entirely compatible with PlayStation 2 and PSOne software. Games that DO NOT WORK have not been disclosed. hmmmm interesting. i could have sworn that it was going to be 100% backwards compatable. another lie maybe?
yeah, i thought sony had gone psycho on getting it 100%...?
I haven't heard anything about the ps3 not being totally compatable with old games, but it's interesting. Could you provide a link.
I was under the impression it was supposed to be nearly 100% backwards compatible leaving them with a little bit of leeway. I find it hard to believe anyone would have taken 100 BC seriously anyway considering even the PS2 wasn't 100% BC with the original PlayStation.
about the backwards compatibility sony can play almost 100 percent of its ps2 and psone games but xbox can only play about four xbox games come on xbox360 fans just admit your ms company has quit on xbox
see xbox 360 gamers are looking towards the future. we dont need old xbox games. playstation gamers however need to hold onto their old games because the ps3 launch lineup is horrible. you all will probably be playing final fantasy 7 while the 360 gamers are playing gears of war
There are people who care about older games, because hey were good games. To imply that a generation might as well just be left behind because the graphics aren't top-notch is a harsh outlook. I still play PS1 games from time to time. Not often, but it's great to have the option. I consider not only the lack of thorough backwards-compatability, but the ceasation of premiere games for the original Xbox, to be a kind of abandonment. 2 of the 3 next gen systems are putting a huge emphasis on playing old games, and there is a good reason for it.
Cause all your xboxx games are GARBAGE.
You know, out of my entire Xbox 1 games collection, only one of my favorite games is not BC on the 360, and that's "Destroy all humans". But to be honest, I don't want my console wasting money on BC research, it's a nice little bonus when you have BC but I don't want them wasting any time on it. My original xbox is still sitting right next to my tv, should I ever need it.
I prefer 360 but PS3 has amazing potential in the years to come. Price drop, it's killer apps, the power of the cell and blu-ray storage. The reason i don't like playstation though is because of its controller. No triggers? I can JUST about live without it, but its the design, i like the thumbsticks to be one up on the left side slightly and the right one lower down. It just feels great, i can't reiterate how much easier it is. My hopes were high that Sony would redesign the controller and i would very gladly purchase a PS3 anytime, but they have stuck with the same one, i was bitterly disappointed...
The new controller has triggers in place of the R2 and L2 buttons.
"The L2 and R2 buttons are now triggers, making the button layout similar to that of the Xbox 360's controller." quoted from this article you should read before you speak
Was it mere seconds ago that Sony said the competition were copying?...
everyone including myself who watched the e305 conference,who have the next gen access video from that e3 knew this already.but people copied and pasted from developers who aren't making ps3 games.it's not a lie about BC.you can't have 100% BC because some obscure games were not coded correctly.konami found that out on ps2 for some of its games when sony released a new series of ps2s a couple of years ago.but they can reach at the most 98 to 99%.just hope you don't have that one single game out of the 5000 to 15000 released across ps1,ps2.
Just under 4 month left before they launch the ps3 and we need to see alot of playable games for it at the TGS 2006, then we see whats what - But 1 thing i now of is that the PS3 will be hard to get if you havent made a pre order, im waiting for my local gamestore to start taking pre orders and its the same store i got my 360 at launch. IM OUT.
Have any of you seen the latest images of Call of Duty 3 for both PS3 and 360?? Are they any different?? Look closely, im not going to tell anything, But they really look different on each system. I dont know if its me but I believe one version looks better. Im not going to tell wich is. Look and judge for yourself. Again look closely. Find the pictures on ign.com.
look the same to me.
yeah, i looked too, and i can't see any diffrences... pretty damn good for a port!
also btw the graphics chip can access all 512mb but the cell cant. hmm can u say bottleneck.
Did you read that part about the HDIP camera? You can also use it DURING gameplay also vioce chat as well! OMG!! THATS TRUE next generation!! Welp, The PlayStation 3 is the best of all.
live vision is the same...
lol keeps us laughing lol you fony fans r funny lol lol lol lol lol
indeed. they are hilarious
stop bashin ps3 microsoft fans
the cell is not the graphics chip.it can be but it's not.rsx is.cell probally does multiple tasks and number crunching.but all that doesn't matter.it's the games they will produce that matters.
Welcome Chang3...PS3 unleash on Nov. 17
you really made yourself sound dumb ass hell with that comment. "the cell is not the graphics chip.it can be but it's not.rsx is.cell probally does multiple tasks and number crunching.but all that doesn't matter.it's the games they will produce that matters." First of all I never said the cell is the graphics chip so I dont know who you call yourself correctin. Secondly u sound stupid anyway because the cell cant be the graphics chip. What I said is that the rsx can use all 512 mb of the system memory however the cell cant. It is limited to the 256mb. I repeat: Can u say bottleneck?
but since your no programmer,you can't say it's going to have a bottle neck.when you start making ps3 games and you find a bottle neck,let me know.if you seen the e305 presentation,cell was producing graphics without the help of rsx.that's what i'm saying.no i'm not a tech head.i'm a gamer who likes games.how about being a gamer without thinking someone is attcking you
Thats just dumb, more RAM can only be better, having it like that can easily mean bottlenecks, you dont need to be a programmer to know that. Im sure id notice if the 360 had halfs its RAM inaccessible by the CPU compared to the full 512mb. Im still annoyied that they didnt just have 1gb, RAM isnt expensive is it? Ive seen 512 sticks for 20 quid.
I'm not goign to counter you in regards to the topic for alex handled that for me. But I am a gamer and I never said u were attackin me however you were tryin to correct me however I was right and your comment was sadly false.
gamers are responding to the news of a possible road rash release for next gen systems.i see sony and xbox gamers agreeing on something.that's what being a gamer is.common ground.don't act dumb by calling others dumb.makes yourself seem like an idiot.
that doesnt make sense. If you sounded dumb ass hell with one of your comments or i guess i should say two (17 and 21) then you will be called as such and in no way does that make me or anyone else seem as tho they are acting dumb. end of story
a gig of ram in both systems.i see friends pcs push some crazy graphics but it cost them alot of money.
18 - lawman shadowgamer - 43 Minutes ago i see what your saying.but one bad apple in the bunch doesn't make them all bad.gamers who like games are going to reach other gamers before they jump on bandwagons just because it seems cool.some of these people will be the ones we'll be playing with online.i'd rather play with someone who's a gamer and good sportsman than gamers who lack maturity and can't see that all systems have good games on them.and if the community of gamers is to grow,and the industry,the good ones need to keep trying. if your feel the need to bicker,then go ahead.i'm trying to not have a beef with you.your a gamer.you like micrsoft systems.so do i.i also like sony and nintendo systems.i have or have played almost all of them.it's about the games man.can we agree on that. Reply | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Spam/Offensive
what does this have to do with me? I like sony and nintendo systems too but I will be damn if i buy a ps3 until the price drops sometime in 2008 or 2009 for the gamess dont justify the price nor are they 100-200 dollars better than 360 games. Actually I think the 360 games look better than the ps3 ones. And if by bickering you mean proving my point then yes i will continue to bicker. Just because I proved you wrong doesnt mean im immature or none of that. If you want to debate something with me make sure you know what you talkin about and we wont have this problem.
shadowgamer - 1 Hour ago the cell is not the graphics chip.it can be but it's not.rsx is.cell probally does multiple tasks and number crunching.but all that doesn't matter.it's the games they will produce that matters. i've seen cell produce graphics by ibm to run a flight simulator.no graphics chip.i've seen the tech demonstrations of cell by sony not using rsx.maybe i misread what you were saying.but you don't have to jump down someone's throat.just say what you meant in a calm,cool manner.or just say shadow,you're wrong on something and explain it.that's all.as for 360.it's a good system.all it needs now is a selection of games to please everybody.and not just shooter fans.ps3 is a choice.if some gamers choose to wait for ps3 for games they are familiar with,there's nothing wrong with that.it's not the system they are waiting for,but the games they know are going to be on it.just like 360 gamers know what type of games are going to be on 360.there's no right or wrong on a person's individual choice.buy one or buy them all.it's all the same.having fun.
not all 360 games are shooters and it has a great selection perhaps you just dislike it. what are you talkin about? I didnt jump down your throat I juss simply replied to you. If what you say is true about cell then my bad however I need a link. I never said there was anything wrong with people waiting for ps3. what are you talkin about?
he doesnt get it.
http://www-306.ibm.com/chip... a lot of it is way over my head,but i get some of it.the first paragraph talks about not needing a gpu.i've seen the video but can't remember yet.e305 sony press conference does show a short clip of the mountain terrain and clouds as you fly over.what i mean with 360 is that it's time to release more platformers,third person action games,rpgs,more fighters.things that bring in the masses.first person is fun with friends,but most titles are m rated.leaving out the younger crowd.it's not about us the hardcore anymore who have grown up. most parents won't buy teen or mature.they buy e for everyone.mature sells.but only to guys like you and i who are old enough.when i did retail,i had to turn people away because they were not old enough.i said go get a parent and let them decide.as for ps3 and 360.it's about perceived value.what the system can do.100-200 more doesn't seem like much when you plan on having the system for more than 5-10 years.400 for 360 is not much when you plan to have it for a long time.500 or 600 for ps3 is not much when you consider that you will have it for a long time.i just hope they last like my atari,nes,dc,xb,ps2,etc.i was one of the lucky ones that they didn't break on me.
ok so what you mean is the cell can render video. Duh. We all know that. Why do you think microsoft keeps saying that the cell is better for hd video than for games. My point is that yes it can render graphics for videos and presentations however I'm pretty damn sure that a next gen game can't be run without the gpu. Also 360s line up is more diverse than the ps3s will be at launch and at least until Q2 07 perhaps longer. Platformers are Kameo,sonic, viva pinata which is a flagship title by the way for it will have massive marketing and its own tv show for kids. Rpgs are mass effect, oblivion, two worlds, too human, lost odyssey, elveon, eragon, and many more. More fighters? Well 360 has DOA yet ps3 will presumably have tekken athough none has been seen of the game i doubt it will be out anytime soon. So the fact that you said that most parents wont buy teen or maturre is indeed true however in regards to the xbox360 it is irrelevant for i listed several games that meet the genres u listed or at least are sufficient when it comes to the competition (fighting games). 100-200 dollars more (ps3) does seem like much when you can have a console for 100-200 dollars less (xbox360) for more than 5-10 years as well. 500 or 600 is alot for a ps3 when there is a 300 and 400 dollar 360 even if you are going to have it for a long time. Both consoles will be great and both are good value for their respectable prices its just that when you compare the two games wise, the 360 is the better deal for me. What people fail to realize is that NOT EVERY MOVIE WILL BE RELEASED ON EITHER FORMAT. So yes you have a hi def movie player but it wont have all the movies you want. Had blu-ray been accepted as the hi def standard or they both agreed to a unified format then blu-ray would be a far better deal but it isnt. Also the ps3 games arent 100-200 dollars better and it is a very good possibility that the games will be in the 70 dollar price range which benefits 360 even more for me because I personally believe 360 games look better than ps3 ones. I look at it like this if you want to watch movies get a ps3 but if you want to play games get a 360 or a wii. wii60 for me.
7 controllers haahahahahahahahahahahaaahahah ahahahahahhaahahahahahahahahaha haaahahahahahahahahhaahahahahah ahahahahahaaahahahahahahahahhaa hahahahahahahahahahaaahahahahah ahahahhaahahahahahahahahahahaaa hahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahah ahahahaaahahahahahahahahhaahaha hahahahahahahahaaahahahahahahah ahhaahahahahahahahahahahaaahaha hahahahahah I could sworn i only seen 4 controll indicator lights.
7 bluetooth devices.
Sony said 7 controllers.
Playstation 3 supports up to 7 wireless Bluetooth devices – not the keyword “device” as it means Sony isn’t limiting it to only controllers. http://www.googleityoumoron...
i wonder how big a t.v i would have to get to play a seven player game 60 inch? or 70?
7 this and that lol lol lol......... that was kunt kataragi bull $hitting the figures again lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol just like the other figures like the rxs and cell lol lol lol lol .... YOU FONY FANS ARE IN FOR THE DISAPOINTMENT OF THE DECADE COME NOVEMBER LOL LOL LOL LOL
7 wireless devices was the official statement. Xbots saying "Sony lies!" because the PS3 has 1 HDMI port, 1 gigabit ethernet port, 4 wireless controllers, and supports up to 7 wireless devices. Come on, the 360 can only support 4 wireless devices, has standard ethernet instead of gigabit (100 mbps vs 1000 mbps), and doesn't even support 1080p, let alone have an HDMI port. We're only paying $100 more than them and get all of those features, on top of blu-ray, PS1, and PS2 full backwards compatibility and yet they still attempt to laugh at us? Damn, talk about denial at its worst. Oh yeah, we get free online multiplayer AND a web browser. I wonder when Microsoft is going to put one of those in their wonderful $50-a-year service.
