Other than 2.75 perc. plunge, there is no new news, and PSP is selling better than ever. Even if all this goes on, exactly what it matters in the way of gamers having to have fun at 11th Nov. at all ?!

"PlayStation 3 units on display at the Tokyo Game Show operated erratically and had to be repeatedly reset, according to a report released Monday by Macquarie Equities analyst David Gibson in Tokyo.

"While the reason for this is unknown, we suspect it may be due to overheating as a result of enclosing the units and the high temperatures at the venue," Gibson wrote.

"We are concerned that such a problem has occurred so close to full production and is clearly negative news for the company."
Investment firm Goldman Sachs Group Inc. lowered Sony's stock rating to "neutral" from "buy," citing confusion over the release of PlayStation 3 and concerns that disappointing sales of PlayStation Portable may weigh on its earnings in electronics operations more heavily than expected. "

Now DJ was saying only one game had problems on one unit, but this tells a whole other story people.

I wouldn't be so sure about getting a PS3 at the start actually if I read this

ps you call this no news bhai? I think it actually is. And biased mod? It's just news. Important news actually.

important news indeed, i think i`d wait to get one, same as when i got my 360. Initial batches of items always have some problem attached, i mean, i hope there isn`t a prob with the PS3 and heat, but we are not going to know EXACTLY, until its in the hands of gamers.

Only a few differences. Read this line again:

"PlayStation 3 units on display at the Tokyo Game Show operated erratically and had to be repeatedly reset"

That wasn't the problem with 360 at launch. Not reported in this order when they were in demo's doing games. Ofcourse, there are problems on every launch, but the Sony prob's sound rather worrying.

They should have done the external power adapter maybe to reduce heat and more space to get the airflow going in the case...
