Get the scoop on Sony's Playstation 3 video game system!

This is it peeps, the Console Wars are starting up again! Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 and now the Sony Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Revolution are underway as well. Want the facts on these game consoles and what they can do? Here's the 411 on the Sony PS3!

The Power of the Playstation 3

The big word is the Cell Processor for the PS3. It's supposed to be wicked fast and here are the numbers.
  • A 3.2 Ghz CPU.
  • Can handle seven wireless controllers at once.
  • 24-hour battery power for the controllers.
  • You may be able to use a PSP as a wireless controller.
  • Built-in wireless internet capability.
  • Can handle video chat.
  • Detachable hard drive slot.
  • You can plug two TVs into one PS3!
  • 256 MB RAM.
  • 256 MB RAM for the graphics chip.
  • Supports HDTV at up to 1080p resolution.
  • You can play Playstation 1 and Playstation 2 games on it!
  • 35 times the power of the PS2.
  • It comes in three different colors.
  • So it's not as fast as the Xbox 360 and it doesn't come with a hard drive. But, you can play PS and PS2 games on it, which is awesome news! Either way, it's wickedly fast system that'll make your fave games look incredible.

    Cool Extras for the Playstation 3

    The best news about the Playstation 3 is that there'll be a ton of games for it when it drops. Everything from Gundam World to the latest Electronic Arts sports games, and a new Final Fantasy game, will show up. Plus, it should be cheaper than the Xbox 360.

    PS3 Final Details

    The good news is that it'll have a ton of games to play on it. The bad news is that the Xbox 360 is a faster game system. Which one would you rather have?

    Playstation 3 Release Date!

    You'll be able to get your hands on your very own Playstation 3 game console in Spring of 2006!

    1PS3 price alert! The price tag on the PS3 has been rumored at a staggering $450 US. Holy busted piggy banks Batman! Start saving your allowance now folks, and cross your fingers that Sony catches a clue and drops this huge price tag.

  • 1Sweet, just make it smaller and put a screen on it so you can play it anywhere and make it in more colors.

    Ah! For surfers in the UK, $450 US means it'll cost 250 pounds. If the price drops to $370 US, it will cost 200 pounds instead.

    1Why is it so much money, like $110 because my mother aint going to get.

    1Yeah, why does it have to be so expensive? It's gonna be an awesome system but lots of people won't be able to afford it.

    1Can't the price be smaller? How about $250. If you do so, I will tell all my friends to buy one. (I have about 50 friends).

    1It's great. I am in Austrlia so it will be around $700. Oh yeah, I am getting one. I've already pre-orded an Xbox 360 and I am buying a PS3 because my dad loves consoles. I also have a PSP, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and PC.

    This is a topic about developers The only reason I wanted to post this is because I wanted to tell people that I am creating a game called Legacy Of Swords and a book called Legacy Of Swords, this will probably be for developers to chat and ask about things, as there is no separate chat rooms.
