Am I the only one who actually likes what they've done to the PS3?
So what if the gyro thingie is a Nintendo ripoff, as long as it makes the games funnier to play I'm all for it.

No, it's not. XD The PS3 controller looks like the PS2 controller, but wireless.

From xe.com, just now, 599 USD = 471 Eur = 322 GBP however Sony's offical European price is 599 Eur = 409 GBP = 760 USD = we pay more than our US cousins. Import ftw.

Haha, import?

What about the NTSC to PAL translation?

PAL is almost dead, 90% of TVs these days support NTSC, even cheap crap ones. All you'd need is a step-down converter and you can get those pretty much anywhere *shrugs*

*Every gamer on the 'net covers their ears and go "lalalalalalalala"*

I wouldn't buy a console for that price no matter the games, though.

A Nintendo representative was famously quoted after last years E3 that they didn't reveal the controller for their upcoming console because other companies would steal it. Lo and behold, they were right. After what was already an under whelming showing, PlayStation developer Ken Kutaragi pulled a standard Dual Shock controller from his breast pocket to a silent audience of journalists. When the controller was put to use, we learned it had motion sensors.

Not really motion sensors though. What's inside is a tilt sensor. Phil Harrison, president of Sony Worldwide, proudly boasted about how innovative this controller would be during a sloppy, obviously almost impossible to control demo of Warhawk. No one in the audience believed a word of this, and the lack of any real cheering proved it.

It's stunning enough that he had the audacity to claim innovation, but the controller doesn't even offer as much as Nintendo's upcoming Wii. The PS3's Dual Shock only senses tilting, not actual movement that could move a character in and out of the screen. A press release later stated the controller wouldn't feature any vibration features either, something they failed to mention during the conference.

lol.

wait... there's more...

Adding to a list of things they must have "forgotten" about, it seems like a pretty important detail when the lower priced $499 model won't have HDMI support, Wi-Fi, or a slot for memory sticks. They indicated the price difference would be because of the hard drives, a fine way to try and slip by important facts to the press who may not read the rundown on paper.

wow, i can really see sony having a hard time in this console war.

They deserve it. And I hope MGS4 gets released for the Wii, just so I can laugh in the faces of PS3 fanboys.

God, I hate Sony. Not even Front Mission 5 would warrant a buy for this console.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

So you've sold your soul for a few good games...
