Straight from Sony's press conference here at E3 comes the big news we've all been waiting for...PlayStation 3 is real, baby.
We're blasting up this article as the conference is still going on, but we're going to keep on updating with official details as they roll in from over the phone.
The first word: The name of the next Sony super system is definitely PS3 or PlayStation 3. Nothing fancy or surprising there. And, at least Sony didn't go with PlayStation 361 to outdo Microsoft.
Sony isn't joking around either, the PS3 is the focus of the conference. More details as the come, but be sure to check out the linked stories below for full PS3 coverage from the SCEI event.
More numbers than you can shake a slide rule at.
UPDATE: PS3 now official confirmed for release in the spring of 2006.
With the absolutely massive splash that Sony Computer Entertainment made with its 2005 E3 press conference, we couldn't resist compiling as much information as possible about the system's upcoming games and putting it in one easy to use guide. After all, it's been less than two weeks since the PS3 was officially announced and there are already 34 confirmed videogames for Sony's next generation console. That's a hell of lot more than the PSOne or PS2 had in their coming out periods, that's for sure, and we still have plenty of time left before the expected spring 2006 release date. Now that's crazy!
To help you weed through all the madness, we've compiled a comprehensive list of every confirmed PlayStation 3 game in existence, no matter how big or how small. So if it's been confirmed for Sony's next system then we've written it down for you right here. Keep in mind that this list is only for confirmed PS3 games -- vague hints and possible guesses are not listed. These are for confirmed and 100% real games only -- so don't be surprised if you don't see the next-gen game you want to happen but isn't.

Well, I know a few things:
Square has promised that while they do plan to develop games for the xbox 360, that Final Fantasy (Not FF online though) will remain PS exclusive. They have said they will develop FFXI for the Xbox 360, as well as any future online titles (and possibly a few side-shoots to the main FF series such as crystal chronicles) but FF itself will not jump ship.
PS3 will also be the first system to support 1080p resolution. Even though the chance of you finding (or affording) a TV that can do 1080p is unbelievably low. My own HDTV does 1080i, 720p, and 480p...as do 99% of them out there. Of course, when the U.S. DOES start getting 1080p HDTVs, PS3 will be ahead of the game since the Xbox360 can't do it.
I'm buying both though. Verdict is still out on the Revolution.
