PS3 may cost as much as $800 at launch. Say goodnight, PS, XBox is gonna eat your lunch.

I'm waiting for the PS3 to come out. But if it is $800 at launch then I will buy myself a XBox 360 lol.

Most of my favorite games are on Playstations. So, hopefully it won't be that much.

I'm content with PS2. I only play three games. The Godfather, GTA San Andreas and Madden 06. I might go out and purchase a PS3 when the price drops. I'm not really a video game buff so that price is simply not worth it for me.

The ps3 is not going to be much better then the ps2, the only reason they are bringing it out now is bc microsoft launched the 360 which in turn makes playstation to have to compete.....The reason it is so expensive is bc they are using top of the line dvd players, cd roms, recorders, etc...I believe it is blue tooth or whatever the brand is called.
No reason to buy a ps3 when you get the same quality from ps2.
As for the 360 the ony thing I don't like is they rushed their games such as Madden the playbook reminds me of the old tecmo bowl playbooks lol.

I'm definitely not purchasing a PS3 when it firsts comes out. If it seems to be pretty good, I might buy one later on down the line when the price drops...until then I'll stick with my PS2.

No problem, the only good thing about it is when it comes out the ps2 prices will drop some so not only can users of older model ps2s buy a new one but also the games won't be as much depending on the maker of the game, nor will controllers, memory cards, etc....

One question and I have heard numerous conflicting answers. When does GTA: Liberty City Stories come out for PS2?

First I heard April 28.

Then I heard May 6.

Now I'm hearing May 30.

Acually I was told from people who work at game stop, and eb games (which I frequent a lot) that it is strictly for psp and will not come out on ps2....This is so people buy the psp....Just like certain games are only made for x-box and not for ps2, it is so ppl buy the xbox.

Oh, well that sucks. Since you seem to be the man for video game information, do you know of another GTA in the making for PS2?

Can't afford that and I prolly still wouldn't be able to afford a PS2. Knowin Sony they will prolly still sell the PS2 like they did the original Playstation even as they sell PS3 and PS2 won't be that cheap. I'll bet they jacked up the price of PS3 so that they could still keep the price of PS2 up somewhat and continue to make money on both.

Interesting...but not worth it. I see the PS3 ripped off the Revolution's control idea...that will probably kill Nintendo and make it a 2 console battle.

Few things...Bluetooth is actually a wireless technology. And, the PS3 will have High Definition DVD (Blu Ray) players built right in. Or so I have heard. That is almost worth the initial price right there if it's true.

And, regarding the early Xbox 360 games...every consoles's first line of games are weak. The developers don't yet know how to push the technology to it's limits. This same thing happened with the first PS2 and Xbox games.

Just an FYI.

I prefer Xbox, BTW...graphics are better then PS2. I donh't know how the next gen will compare.

They changed it back to look like the current PS2 controller with some added stuff.

There are some previews of games on that page. Some of the videos aren't great quality because they were taped off the big screen at the latest conference. The one game called Eight Days I believe looks pretty cool. Metal Gear Solid 4 is the one I can't wait for.
