    What do we know so far about the PS3 and it's launch? Like the Revolution, there isn't really much known about it yet and I was just wonderig what was known.

    It'll be interesting to see how much this thing costs. I'm guessing $500. I've never been a big fan of the Playstation consoles. There are really any exclusive games that interest me. Most of them end up coming out for Xbox like Grand Theft Auto.

    I heard that it is going to be roxxars, Ken Kutaragi said so anyway. But he has let me down before with his promises, so don't count on it ; )

    I think it's somewhere around $300 - $350 for launch.

    There's no way it'll be cheaper than Xbox 360. Did you see that somewhere or are you just guessing?

    It's supposed to have "several" processors. It should be a very nice console indeed, but really what it boils down to is what games will it have. You have your givens, like Final Fantasy, which will be awesome on it. Then of course a ton of Anime and RPG titles, which help it a lot. It also has a huge sports lineup, but many of it's sports games are third party, and don't really give anyone a reason to buy a PS3. That goes for all third party games. So you get a special character in the PS3 version, I'm not going to buy one JUST for that character, when I can buy the game for the 360, which by the time PS3 comes out, I will already have.

    *Insert breather here*

    Ok, I think that the PS3 is going to have to announce some killer exclusive partnerships in order to stay up to par this time around. You never know though, they might have enough exclusive RPG titles to do insanely well already. I don't play many RPG's on Sony systems to know how big they all are though.

    PS3 has metal gear solid and GT (although does GT hold the same power it used to, wasn't GT4 a let down?)... but then again those two titles ARE made for fans of those two series...

    PS3 is also the sequal to PS2, that should be enough to at least get it on a charging start
