    The recent hype surrounding the PS3 article from Pulse regarding the media interface has promted new information from a forum post on playstation.com

    only speculation at this point, many have doubt because sony has been very quiet about release dates, and information. as a Sony slappy myself, this could only mean good thing for the PS3...waiting patiently...:smoker:

    Have you seen some of the screenshots? It blows the 360 away.

    There hasn't been anything that wasn't prerendered yet has there?
    But yes, this thing will be powerful but then again it will be newer so you would expect that?

    I also want to get hi-def TV, for either system

    The PS3 better take advantage of a later release, and not have any shortcomings as the xbox360 did, but I think I will stick with the xbox as I like their sports games better.

    Those sound like some killer features. However, this is Sony and therefore I’ll remain skeptical until I actually see these features working.

    But, hot damn.

    It’s going to be a DVR? Sweet.

    You can transfer files (including video) between the PSP and the PS3? This is one of the features I wanted from Microsoft’s rumored iPod-PSP thinger.

    And this goes one step further by making it location free! There are already location free players on the market, but with this they might become more mainstream.

    iTunes like service? Well the 360 is supposed to be getting an MSN service with video and music as well, but sounds wicked to me. I just hope all the content is not stuffed full of DRM, and that it won’t use proprietory formats.

    Are you guys more excited about the PS3 now? Because I certainly am.

    excited?? no, hopeful, yes :) give me a release date and 2 weeks to pay for it and then you will see me happy.. For ps2 I pre-ordered from KB toys thinking it would be ahuge line and what not, so i get there at like 5am for the 6am opening brother and I wait for 45minutes till others even go inside the mall to wait in line.. I expect it to be the same way this time lol.

    sony do not mention that stuff for a while.. I expect to be about $450-$500 though since its supposed to have so many features. Plus I don't think its going to be geared to youngsters so that is even better so maybe the parents rush to buy their kids one, won't happen

    Sony says as soon as March? Or not. They have taken back that statement at least twice now.

    Im hopeful for March :rofl right..a month away some places say and we havent even heard the final specs. If anything, March 07.....
