However, due to storage and bandwidth constraints, fully downloadable games and internet browsing won't be made available.
so once agin anohter lie, no browser at launch

Is anyone else confused about how Sony can blame bandwidth issues on the reason for no web browser at launch. Isn't surfing the Internet dependent on your personal Internet speed, nothing to do with Sony's?

...but I am interested in seeing how their online service will "look" at TGS, and then how it will truely look and work when the PS3 launches.

First Microsoft and now Sony... Don't they realize that they could sell all "Premium" systems at a console launch and still not have enough to meet demand? Hardcore gamers do not want "core" systems.

Yah but hardcore gamers who are forced to get a core are forced to pay extra to upgrade.

You hit the nail on the head, Paul.

What is there to upgrade on the "core" PS3?

"However, due to storage and bandwidth constraints, fully downloadable games and internet browsing won't be made available."

Sony gets gamers excited, then the gamers go out to the boards and comment on all this excitment, when in reality it's just another promise broken.

Seems like every week there is something new which it really does not surprise me anymore. I'am still sketchy about this free "online" service untill....

I don't think hardcore gamers will not want to touch the Core system. Why not just come out with premiums for the first launch? If you don't really own an HDTV then it probally does not matter. Then again if your not up to date with the next-Gen gaming which should involve a decent HDTV for your console then your probally not hard-core.

Microsoft has the largest network with almost unlimited bandwidth. I'm glad I jumped in! No i'm not dissing the PS3, but I won't rush to buy one, either.
