    That pretty much sums up what may happen this year between Sony and Microsoft. The 360 is launching a 120gb hard drive, and later a Blue Ray player! Let me repeat that, the 360 may be getting a Blue Ray player. Not to be outdone Sony is now considering improvements of their own. Memory card slots for the PS3 would own. Thoughts?

    Microsofts announced larger hardrive is part of their plan on turning the xbox into a Tivo system. For those of you who dont know, Tivo automatically records your favorite shows, movies, news..ect even when you are not there. Its basically a way to watch a show if you are not there to see it.

    What we do know with Sony's PS3 is that they were thinking of planning a shift in hardware and i dont think its just the hard drive. I was under the impression they plan on changing one of the systems so its price will go down, not up. However as we dont know the details, its pure speculation.

    The thing concerning Microsoft and blue ray is shakey to say the least. It was announced by Moore that they would consider making an EXTERNAL blue ray drive for the xbox if the customers wanted it. Just because they consider it means in no way it will happen.
    But heres the next interesting part, if they do make an external drive for it, its main focus would be on movie playback. You wont see many if not any games made for a system that requires its customers to purchase an external blueray disk drive. There for the only reason to purchase it would be for movies.

    So its possible a new 80G PS3 is coming out huh? Whats that gonna cost people? I'm guessing 800 by the time they've put in all the new fance gadgets they can stuff into that ugly monstrosity. Anyways that 700-800 for the machine and then around the same amount for a decent HDTV. sony sure knows how to push a product. I don't understand how they think this is going to help the situation but w/e. Its their jobs on the line.

    Didnt look like you read the article. Sont most likely wont raise prices at all, rather its possible to have an upgraded system for the same price. They are working on having a lower priced system as well, but the system is still in its infancy, it will be timed accordingly. Good job at being biased by the way.

    Funny how Microsoft was saying not long ago that having blueray was useless, seeing as they could "Make games just as stunning as a PS3's on a normal DVD"... lol

    You weren't paying ANY attention. It's external. Used solely for movies. MOVIES. Not GAMES. Now stfu and gtfo.

    And that's just like this, anyways. It's funny that Sony Rep's said that Rumble was unnecessary and last-gen, yet they're supposedly bringing it back.

    No the real reason was that Immersion was filing lawsuits against Sony for their rumble technology. Microsoft and Nintendo payed off Immersion earlier after their problems, now its sonys turn. Notice how none of the companies went into the open to admit it. Its not uncommon for a business to want and downplay the legal problems they face. They couldnt get rumble in intime for launch, thats it. Dont forget Sony's dualshock controller has won numerous awards for its design, it would seem strange for sony to let that go.

    They didn't pay immersion or whoever, and when they were confronted about the lack of rumble they came up with the excuse saying rumble is "last gen"

    Sonys excuses :wtf:

    way to go jeff. Do you even do your research before posting crap? Sony was downplaying the fact they were dealing with some legal issues with Immersion (you didnt even know who they were), they planned rumble all along but could not use it till the legal work was done. Unfortunately for sony, this happened at a bad time. Like i said, every company from nintendo to microsoft has downplayed and hid the fact of their legal battles. Everyone one of them has gone through a ton already, chances are you dont even know about even half of them.

    Yes phil did say rumble wouldnt ship for the standard controller, at the same time legally he couldnt say that immersion was taking them to court. Its not excuses as so much as hiding the reason they cant talk about it nor make promises it would be there. The producer of God of War said they had planned for a long time to have the rumble feature in their 3rd installment as well and nothing has changed.

    i'm still here ^^

    Still, MS said that there was no point in using Blue ray, but they jumped on the band-wangon, regardless if they're using it for movies or games, they contradicted themselves. :thumbsup:

    way to go ******

    I don't need a lecture from you about your godly Sony

    i was talking about how Sony covers up their downfalls with excuses

    They didn't pay the money cause who knows why

    Then they go off saying its last gen

    Just like when the PS3s werent selling, then, they say its a GOOD thing!

    I'm done with your stupid smart*** ****

    If Sony siad **** tastes nice, you'd go and eat it. :crazy:

    If Nintendo said spooning your dog was a new Warioware game, you'd play it.

    Shift has all consoles... he hasn't got a favourite:thumbsup:

    Im fairly neutral but i will defend a system from misconceptions from fankids like you jeff.

    http://www.edn.com/article/CA6421009.html?partner=enews&title=Article&spacedesc=news&nid=2648

    read it and weep. After 5 years of legal battles Sony finally agreed to pay Immersion 90 million dollars. Its done, over with completed.


    oh gawd... ok you just gave me the worst mental image in the world. lol, that had me laughing quite hard. Thanks.

    Exactly, i dont have any favorites, but i am defending the misconceptions of the underdog here, which is the PS3. I prefer my PC gaming to everything else to be honest, but i like enjoying the best parts of each system. Fanboyism really is a disease and it needs to be eradicated so the inbreeding will stop.

    when sony announced six-axis on their controller, wii fans started accusing sony of "copying" from the wii

    how come nobodies saying microsoft is copying sony with the blu-ray?
    i mean yes if microsoft release it its just going to be for movies etc, but they're still releasing it on their next gaming console.

    MICROSOFT ARE COPYING SONY!
    SONY ARE COPYING WII!
    WII is getting boring
    so sony will get boring too
    and then microsoft will get boring!
    then all fanboys will die and be extinct and we can all live happily ever after.

    and yes that masterjedi guy always makes up random crap and never backs up his words with facts, someone shoot him please

    blu ray isnt sony's innovation...
    sony is just supporting blu ray
    while m$ is supporting hd dvd
    but if hd dvd fails m$ will offer blu ray players so people can still take advantage of the hd capabilities
