Yes! its finally here, if you are a true fan you probably aren’t reading this post & you are in a line at a BestBuy somwhere. For everyone else here’s the PS3 Wrap up Inkdrop Style…
Um…Which Bundle should i get ?
Well to summarize this… The more expensive version, ($599) has a 60GB Hard Drive, Memory Stick, SD and Compact Flash Drive readers. While the cheaper bundle ($499) has 20GB hard drive and no cool silver trim. Are you saying “Wow Sony is a rip off”? Well actually no they aren’t, they put so many goodies into this machine that they are losing about $220 on every PS3 sold.
Goodies you say? What goodies?
The PS3 is expensive for these reasons
CPU: Getting technical, the PS3 is boasting a 3.2ghz Cell processor which has enough juice to do cloth and fluid simulations, as well as large-scale rigid-body interactions with hundreds of thousands of objects colliding onscreen & ridiculous particle effects.
GPU: A Nvidia Built RSX “Reality Synthesizer” graphics-processing unit, 550MHz, 300-million-transistor graphics chip based on GeForce 7800 GTX graphics technology In Layman’s terms while you are running & gunning it, it will look GREAT especially at 1080p Hi-Def.
Wireless Sixaxis Controller: Looks and works the same as the ps2 controllers so this means no learning curve! so no excuses like “Oh I’m not used to the controller” while your buddies are Pwning you. Innovation you ask? Hells yea! these sixaxis controllers have motion in six degrees: up, down, left, right, forward, and backward. The new six-axis movement control will let players use body language to help control a game.
Others: Memory Stick, SD, Compact Flash reading capabilities, 60GB or 20GB hard drive, HDMI output & the fancy Blue ray disc which holds 50GB of info in 1 disc, Developers have no reason now not to give us lots of extras!
What games are Available at launch?
At Launch there will be a few good titles.. Resistance Fall Of Man, Genji: Days of the Blade, Tony Hawk’s Project 8, Fight Night Round 3, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, F.E.A.R, Call of Duty 3, Tiger Woods 2007 and Sonic the Hedgehog all for about $60 a piece. (No Metal Gear yet)
Hells Yea! FREE On-line play no ‘Xbox live’ type thing, The large on-line network will be the place where you have access to Demos, Music, Videos, On-line multiplayer goodness & Upgrades for each game. There’s no pricing available for the on-line store stuff but check the comments, we will be doing some follow-up’s on that for sure.
Wrapping this up i’ll say there is still alot of negativity surrounding the Ps3, Pricing issues, Development issues and bugs to name a few… but only time will tell us which system prevails.
