The new Sony Playstation 3 is expected to be one hell of a games console, here are the specs and info:
will be late 2005/early 2006. Sony originally stated it could be released in 2004, but as the Playstation 2 is still in it's
maturite, many games are still being produced and sold for it. It would be a total loss to just disregard it so early.
of the PS3 are rumoured to include a DVD burner, TV-recorder, Hard Drive, Internet accessibility & the PS3 will be fully upgradeable
and 'add-on-able'. Hard-drive space is a certainty for the PS3 as this will improve loading speeds and enable users to store music, games and data
on the system.
of the PS3 have been rumoured to be released. One will be a total home entertainment system (retailing at 600-700 Euros), and a
version that just plays games and movies (retailing at 200-300 Euros).
will more than likely be the same of the previous Playstation releases. It may start at around $300, but drop dramatically over the
The new PS3 is said to be able to play PSone and PS2 games. This is an awesome feature I personally feel because there are
still many great games on the PS2, would be great to play them on a new system.
-What will it look like?
No-one knows yet. There are many fan mock-ups of predictions of what it will look like, but no one really knows.
-The power of the PS2
is expected to be much more than the PS2. Rumours suggest that it may be up to 1000x more powerful; personally this seems
a bit far-fetched. Sony has teamed up with IBM and Toshiba to create a new processor called the 'cell', which will be used in the Playstation 3.
Wow - sounds good. Can't wait for the release.
