PS3 (40GB) Review by Cnet.co.uk

They like:
Swanky design; quiet operation; all games in high-definition; user-friendly interface; plays Blu-ray movies; built-in Wi-Fi; 40GB hard drive; online play is free; HDMI output with 1080p support; no external power supply

They don't like:
Games lineup is still unimpressive; HDMI cable not included; PS2 games not supported

You might also need:
HDMI cable, 1080p television

CNET.co.uk judgement:
Sony's PlayStation 3 may be the most expensive next-gen console, and its launch titles aren't very impressive, but its swanky design and bevy of features, including a Blu-ray drive, make it hard to resist

the Dualshock controllers coming out? I'm not buying ps3 before they bundle them with rumble controllers and also, are old ps3 games being made retro compatible with rumble and is rumble being implemented in the new games?

Dual Shock controllers are coming to the US and UK I believe in spring 2008. Japan gets it later this year. The past PS3 games (Resistance, Motorstorm, Warhawk, etc.) will have Rumble with an update. And finally, rumble will be implemented in future PS3 games. Ratchet and Clank creator has said the rumble function is already in R&C future: Tools of Destruction.

Seriously man don't miss out on the PS3 because it has 4 kool exclusives. There is SO much to offer on the PS3 and next is going to be LOADED with killer apps. I have a 360 right now but trust me, once you get a PS3 you won't care LOL. Except maybe miss Gears. Halo 3 sucks my balls. UT3 coming soon too! KILLZONE AND RESISTANCE 2. Even Resistance one is great!

I think I'll wait till spring 08 then. I actually want a ps3 for watching bluray movies right now and for some games later on, but I'm not going to buy new rumble controllers when they come out, and I'm not going to play without rumble, so I'll wait. Games-wise, I'm too busy with my 360 anyways.

Japan will rumble this november I believe, and they just confirm that dualshock 3 works with any PS3 from any region so you can certainly import. Ebay when it come out.

your face sucks! but your body is awesome!

freaking CNet, why am i not surprised? even if the price of PS3 was lower than 360 (which it is, if you add HD-DVD), they won't be happy!

jackfatal3377d ago

CNet is always bashing ps3! and its against ps3!!
so its no surprise they always complain!!
HDMI shouldnt be included because not every one has HD TV!
BC will come soon am sure of it!! they did that just to finish the 60GB model fast!! when its finished then they will put back the BC to the 40GB!
the same with Dualshock! they are waiting until all stock finishes of the current sixaxis then they will sell only the Rumble one!!
they have to do these things in order to sell their huge stocks of hardware!! they spent millions on them! do u really expect they will just throw all the current sixaxis and 60GB with not bundle it with games?????
of course not!! if they want to finish the current stock first they need to lower the price of the hardware or bundle it with games!

But when they say the PS3 "aint all that" (No games) the Sony heros all rush to defend it.
