Console Games / PS3 Specs Revealed! More to follow....
« on: May 16, 2005, 04:32:01 pm »
Sony also confirmed the PlayStation 3, will use Blu-Ray discs as its media format. The discs can hold up to six times as much data as current-generation DVDs. It will also support CR-ROM, CDR+W, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. It also confirmed the machine would be backward-compatible all the way to the original PlayStation. It will also have slots for Memory Stick Duo, a SD slot, and a compact flash memory slot. It will also sport a slot for detachable 2.5 inch HDD somewhat similar the Xbox 360's.

Out of the box, the PS3 will have the capability to support seven Bluetooth controllers. It will also have six USB slots for peripherals--four up front and two in the back.

Sony also laid out the technical specs of the device. The PlayStation 3 will feature the much-vaunted Cell processor, which will run at 3.2 Ghz and feature 2.18 teraflops of performance. It will sport 256mb XDR main RAM at 3.2 Ghz, and have 256MB of GDDR VRAM at 700mhz.

Sony also unveiled the PS3's graphics chip, the RSX "Reality Synthesizer based on Nvidia technology. The GPU will be capable of 128bit pixel precision, 1080p resolution, some of the highest HD resolution around. It also has over 300 million transistors lager than any processor available commercially today. It was manufactured using the 90nm process with 8 layers of metal. The RSX is more powerful than two GeForce 6800 ultras, which would cost rough $1000 if bought today.

The PlayStation 3 will also sport some hefty multimedia features, such as video chat, internet access, digital photo viewing, digital audio and video. Sony Computer Entertainment head Ken Kutaragi introduced it as a "Super computer for computer entertainment."

Ugh, what a let down. Only got 4-5 hours in and man what stinker. Just feels very clunky to me. Never tried a Bioware product before but was thinking this was going to be a blockbuster. This is not a "AAA" title i have to say. 3/10 so far....

PS2 for quality and selection of games.

Ill take Gran Turismo and GTA anyday over Yoshi's Fantastical coloring book adventure. But I have been biased against nintendo since the late 80's.

Well experience is still limited but...

You can shut the display off when listening to MP3's so I almost went 10 hours on one charge.
Gameplay and Movies seems to be in the 4-6 hour range
Gameplay with Wi-Fi on seems to be about 3-4

Twisted Metal Head On For PSP

9
Don't worry about the regions for games. You can import anything you want and play it. I think the only thin that is region locked is movies.

Well I walked into Wal-Mart last night at about 11:30 and there was not a soul to be seen. Dropped $250 for the value pack along with $40 for Twisted Metal Head On. Drove home at warp speed.

1.Opened all the packaging, plugged in the battery, mem card (crap are they small), headphones & remote, hand strap, started a fire with the 400 page manual and flipped the switch to on with the included demo sampler disc and watched with amazement.

2. Picked my jaw up off the floor, changed underwear.

3. Played Twisted Metal for about 6 hours.

4. Repeat Step 2

5. Watched Spider Man 2

6. Repeat Step 2.

Anyways this thing is flippin gorgeous. I have never seen anything like it. External speakers kinda stink but w/headphones it rocks. Will write up some more later, must sleep. Thank you Sony  ;D

Plan on it. Wednesday night 12:00 at Wally World. Still have not decided on games yet. I heard wipeout will have new tracks every month or so to download. I am a big Fifa fan though so Im sure I will grab that. Hope I can play that over the web. Other than that i can not wait........

 Level 56 Hunter here. This being my second MMORPG, first being SWG. I love the fact I do not need 1 hour of prep time before hunting. I hated buying buffs. In Wow I can log in, pick up a quest and be done with it in 10-30 minutes. The artwork and level design is gorgeous. Have not ventured very far into any of the uber high level instances, have been mostly rolling solo. The server performance is another thing. I am on a high population server and frankly it sucks. Every weekend as of late we have been crashing. Hope it gets fixed asap. Oh and the murloc noise is creepy. Rglllghhrlllllrlllllllllllrrrrrrrllgghhl !
