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.

    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?

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

    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.

    When I hear people hating on the Wii U, I am always confused.  For gaming consoles, games, electronics, etc., I try to stay open minded.  I personally have one, and I have found hardly any problems with the system.  First, some problems with it: Only 1 player can use the hand-held screen controller, getting to some places can be hard, and looking up and down to do certain tasks such as changing your system settings can be a hassle. Some benefits of it are: having the ability to use the screen controller, original Wii remote, and any custom or official controller, they fun ability to use the tv or the controller, great games, and the ability to use the screen controller while the tv can be in use to do any other task as watch cable. I think it's a great console! Pretty good graphics and more creative games to be made. The reason that it is hated and unpopular is Nintendo's hatred against making videos on it's games. Those videos spread the knowledge of how much fun it is.
