    Okay, Sony's changed their console from the PS2 to PS3. Many people here want to make opinions about this console. Therefore, I made this thread. Post you thoughts about this next-gen console.

    I think Sony focused more on the graphics then the gameplay.:wink:

    Good console. Nice graphics. Multimedia.

    Too expensive. £250 is the most I will pay for a console.

    Well, it's high priced, but that's what I came to expect from Sony, quality at a price. I never had a sony product break on me or even disappoint me, where every other business has disappointed me at least once. Well, maybe the lack of UMD burners was a disappointment, but not a real one, just a I would rather have been able to. Even nintendo disappointed me in the past, gamecube, stupid rehash of a million different but similar or barely enhanced gameboys, or the stupid and very bad virtual boy. I know the ps3 will be built to the same standard I came to expect from them.

    A complaint many seem to have is that they enforce the use of this and that.. BlaBla WTV. Well, that may be because I'm a gizmo gadget technology freak, but I would have liked sony to cram even more technology in the PS3 lol. I hate Microsoft and their strategy. It's basically give us crap and have us pay later on to make it legit. This way, we're fooled in believing we are not paying anything. Kinda like how you pay Windows every time you buy a PC, but you don't know you are cause it's "pre-installed". And I hate peripherals and attachments. I don't want to have a whole tablet taken up just cause my console needs it's 5 attachments to be complete. That's just my opinion BTW.

    There is also something I enjoy about the playstation series. Sony seem to never do anything, they just let it happen. I think that's what led to the success of their previous consoles. This approach allows more freedom to developers. That's why the weirdest titles always end-up on a playstation. If someone want to do something they won't argue. It almost feel they offer a platform close or similar to the PC, not in hardware but in design. Sony has a problem now, because I don't think it can still use this approach since Microsoft on the other hand does everything in it's power and God knows it's powerful. I hate Microsoft, they always ruin everything, lol. Nintendo is like sony except they do their own games and they always rock. That's why you see fewer 3rd parties, since if you are going to do a game on a nintendo platform, you know you'll have to compete with them in a direct way and that's hard.

    I'm not praising the PS3, just saying I like it. My only complaint is the lack of rumble. Damn, I hate immersion and their stupid patents. I just wish sony pays them wtv and make rumble official in PS3 even if it screws early adopters a bit.

    Oh, and for those who say Sony just copies everyone. I want to say something once and for all!! Neither Nintendo, nor Sony and especially not M$ invented anything. They just market it and finance it, cause they want to make money of it. Great scientist invent these. Sometime they work under sony or nintendo, but most of the time they don't at first. Many universities are actually responsible for most of new technologies. So all we can say is Nintendo decided to market this first, so what if sony market it after, none of these needs credit if only for having the guts to market it first.

    Imo, it's a great system. Resistence offers lots of fun and decent multiplayer. Not much really, just seems to me like an uber computer.

    I think it will be good in about a year or so, similar to what the PS2 did. Other then that i think its just a hopped up computer crammed into a smaller package. Graphics look nice, but I don't really see a difference from the 360.

    -Good graphics, not much better than 360
    -Blu-ray, which I don't give half a rats ass about.
    -Random problems, too be expected. Most new consoles have them.
    -Internet, better than Wii but nothing compared to Live.
    -Linux, definite plus, especially for a nerd like me.

    Conclusion? I'll get it when I can afford it. But I'm asking for a 360 this Christmas. Better games (so far), better networking, and better price.

    Once FFXIII comes out, I'll be saving up though.

    Final Fantasy is the savior of all things Sony.

    Just a few things. First off, you are getting your moneys worth with the PS3, you have to be since figures show Sony loses $250 per console sold. This is primarily because of the Blu-ray player, which alone almost makes the console worth the purchase if you are looking to buy a Blu-ray player.. check the prices of stand-alone blu-ray players.

    Secondly, go check the price of a top of the line gaming PC... lol suddenly the PS3's price doesnt seem that bad eh?

    Now the downsides, well in a recent head to head test comparing graphics of games found on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 (Fight night R3, Call of Duty 3, etc) The Xbox 360 won hands down. So while the PS3 is still a value taking into account Blu-ray capability, the 360 is still the smarter buy. Plus there is a much bigger library of new games for the 360.

    Now over time this will change as more game developers feel out what the PS3 is capable of. But how much? Many developers complain that the PS3 is hard to make games for, and Sony is difficult to work with. :yikes:

    1. Price tag?
      For that price, I might as well just upgrade my PC. Speaking of prices, the price for PS3 games can just rip my pocket a new hole.
    2. Blu-ray?
      Just adding more fuel to the DVD format wars. Idea is good, but they should stop shoving it in our faces. Not many people can afford a HDTV and a PS3. I'm already happy with just DVD movie on my old tube and I speak for most people.
    3. Multimedia?
      If I want multimedia, I have my Nokia N70, my laptop, and my PC.
    4. Graphics?
      Awesome but I rather use my PC. I can always upgrade my graphics card.
    5. Six Axis?
      Stolen idea from Nintendo just like the Analog and Rumble feature on the N64 controller.

    if i want an all-in-one multimedia machine, i'll stick to my PC.

    Awesome stuff, same old controller w/ tilt = poo, Same controller = same controls for all games usually. Graphics high quality and sound high quality.

    I would say that Sony needs to stop with the copying, because they are going too far. When Sony introduced the six-axis, they said the exact same thing word for word that Nintendo said about motion sensing technology. They threw it in at the last minute because they knew the idea was gold (just like analogue and rumble...). They have no games that I have any interest in even though Resistance Fall of Man looks ok. Do not say Final Fantasy is great, because for me it died a long time ago. The plots all seem similar and all the boys look like girls. As for graphics, its really not as good as they say it is. Very slightly better than the 360, so I suggest you save your cash for a miniscule upgrade. The Wii is amazing as it offers an innovative and intuitive feel to games. I played call of duty 3 on 360 and on wii and I had more fun on the Wii. The graphics do not concern me because for my standerds, the Wii version looks good enough. I care about game play, and on the Wii it just felt more immersive. Sony is doing the old stuff, just upgrading graphics. Microsoft is doing good in making better internet play. Yet the Wii is simply amazing as an entirely new way to play. I am new here, but this does not mean I have no background on this subject.

    Blueray is gonna fail, and so will HD-DVD. This is because we are all about digital these days. I think by the time people will be willing to dish out even more cash for another format, it will be commonplace to simply download your movies. Another thing I like with 360 is the downloading, because it saves you the trip to the store to get the HD-DVD or Blueray movie. The PS3 is even worse for shoving this Blueray crap in our faces saying that it is the future, when it really isn't. They have become too confident and I think it will lead to the end of Sony gaming. So don't expect a PS4, because like the name they fail to get origional ideas. Compare that to the Wii, the name is as innovative as the controller. People who make fun of it are just immature Ps3 fanboys who cannot find anything better to do than play FF and use false information as fact. People who blindly follow any company need to get a slap to the face, because the people buying a PS3 are going to end up more pathetic than they already are.
