That's pretty cool I guess - but isn't that a waste of space if you can't save an entire game to your hard drive legally?
May be a dumb question, haven't been following this much...
That's an awesome decision.
I was personally pissed off at MS to not keep the HD standard, as last gen they couldn't shutup about the benefits of including a HD in every unit.
Chief: There are many benefits, including saving money on a mem card.
Yeah I understand that, but 60GB of saved games? I'm just shocked because Sony is already losing enough money due to the BluRay drives being in there.
Has the final pricing been set in stone yet? I would assume if not, that could potentially raise the final price
That was just an example, but other examples could include music, movies, etc.
Sony is calling this a computer, not a console.
I wouldn't complain as long as the price is the same as a 360
IMHO I feel that the "core" based ps3 will be around $399 one controller and a demo disc. and then some kind of bundled pack with the two controllers and memory sticks..but who really knows...I just want mine!...and my MGS4!!
i love the idea though of the HD as a standard..nice
I didn't think about movies and music - mah bad.
How big is the HD in the XBOX 360 currently - and doesn't it only come with the premium pack?
Hmmm...Interesting, what is the price point going to be set at? With a Blu-ray drive and a 60g harddrive as well as an installable 100 g hd. This is going beyond the 360 pricing
Seriously, I'd buy one just for MGS4. Huge Metal Gear fanboy
It could'nt be a small form factor could it? With everything that is going in it, blu-ray, removable hd (min. 60g) and the graphics processor as well as the cell cpu, this is going to be one hot machine.
How's the potential game library?
up until they actually release the unit, expect all the game development to be in-house, so you are looking at a Sony exclusive library not 3rd party develpoed games, no?
It'll have a large majority of the 360 games on it (particularly ones that are released on multiple platforms like sports games), with the exception of a handful of exclusive titles, that each console has.
falconguard: They send out devkits to third parties
but does anybody have a working cell cpu that they can test it on? Or for thatmatter how about an industrial blu-ray?
Nah, the ones right now are no where near the full capability of what the final unit will be.
The developers will be creating basic versions of their games.
It's how they made games on the 360. If I remember correct, they didn't have full powered 360 dev kits until 2-3 months before the 360 came out.
just read more info on this at "1up".........The HD will use Linux.
