Who's getting one?
Who's selling it on Ebay immediately afterwards?

I love my PS2, but from what I have read so far, the chips are not stacked in Sony's favor...

From various news sources:
Sony will release only 100,000 PlayStation 3 machines in Japan.

400,000 will be avalilable in the United States starting Nov. 17

Sony slashed the price for the "cheaper" PS3 model in Japan by 20 percent to
about $420.

Only five games were on sale for the PS3's Japan launch date.


So what do you think???
Wii anyone?

TOO BAD VONDAN! I am doing it anyways :P. The suggestion is what makes the wii's name so great!

I am totally playing with my Wii all day on the 19th! And Rob is getting one two so we will be playing with our Wii's together... there may be some cross-wii action too...

Anyways screw the PS3 until the price drops. I bought a Wii, 4 games, a classic controller, 2000 wii points, and put $5 on a memory card and my total was still less than one ps3. And technically I got 5 games because of wii sports. so yeah screw sony and microsoft for their ridiculous price tags. I could build a computer that could play comperable game and have more funcionality for the same price.

The point is I will buy a ps3 when the price goes below at least 350. And many people are thinking the same thing.

I'd really like a PS3 for MGS4, DMC4, Heavenly Sword, and White Knight Story, but until I can crush coals into diamonds, I don't plan on getting one for awhile.

That and knowing Capcom and Konami, they're going to release special improved editions of MGS4 and DMC4 a year after the initial realese (just like what has happened with every MGS game and the Special Edition of DMC3), so rushing out to get a system to play these games just isn't something I am going to shed tears over. Plus I am sure there will be enough games still coming out on the PS2, GC, and for the still-fairly-new DS to keep me occupied. >.>

Same goes for Wii. Haven't seen enough on that system to warrant getting one. It looks kind of gimmicky. If I want to play a sport, I will go outside and play a sport, I dun need to play golf or tennis in my living room...

I'm one of those people who likes to wait for prices to drop before buying the "new" except for a few cases with games.  I don't think I'm even going to consider buying the PS3 until the price is somewhat close to $100.

But if I do see a game I like but it's for PS3, I'll probably buy a copy when the price goes down even before I own the system.  That's what I did when the first 2 .hack games came out.  (I was able to borrow a PS2 every now and then during that time)

Yeah, I don't plan on getting a PS3 anytime soon, and not just because of the price. Maybe I'm not much of an "average" gamer, but I don't really see any games of interest to me being released for the ps3 in the near future. They all look really great, don't get me wrong, and some commercials make me really want to SEE the game being played, but none of them look all that fun to play, to be honest. So, there is nothing really there for me at the moment. Until the price goes down and I see some interesting games (possibly not until FFXIII), then I will stick happily with my launch issue PS2 (He's an old boy by now, he is!).

has anyone else noticed how absolutely CREEPY the PS3 commercials are? Like the crying baby....They made me want to run in fear!

If I miraculously find myself with several hundred dollars, then a PS3 would probably be on the agenda X3

Yeah, I think those commercials are supposed to present the PS3 as so superior that it is eerie, kind of like aliens. Like the PS3 is seen destroying all those other toys, objects, because it is that much better.

Well, I think we can all agree that the PS3 is better than eggs.....can't we?

Yes. They are better than eggs that smash themselves against the wall revealing creepy crows. AND they are definitely better than creepy babies.

Hey, I figure anything has to be better than those really weird ads for the PSP.

Example but not an exact quote:
"It's like a mailbox you can chew!"
"Um... okay then."

I'll probably have to wait 1 or 2 years for a PS3. Aren't those things like $700? T~T And I LOVE Playstations. So I'm going to be a little sad. Right now I'm trying to save up for Sakuracon and other stuff. D: this is going to be a long wait.

The majority of (normal) gamers won't be getting the PS3 it looks like, but the auctions up on Ebay right are NUTS. I just saw one end at $2.8k. There are some desperate people out there.

I have a PS1.

>.>

<.<

What?  The only game I play is the first Ghost in the Shell game, and that's a PS1 game.  I'll probably end up buying myself a PS2 this summer, and the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex game.  But, to be honest, this mass hysteria over a gaming system confuses and amazes me.

IT'S A GAMING SYSTEM PEOPLE!!!  Yeesh, calm down.  Most of the games available for PS3 are PS2 games.  So you can all just chill out and wait, no need to go mug or shoot a person, the games will still be there in the morning.

Just take a deep breath, and pick up a book.  The book will be far more interesting to you in the end, I'm sure.

This is aimed at the people I see on the news reports fighting over the system, not anyone on the boards.  ^.^

No kidding. Didja guys hear about those people being mugged while they were waiting to buy a PS3 outside a best buy or something in springfield??? IT'S MADNESS I SAY!!! MAAAADNESS!!

I mean...they were WAITING-IN-LINE it's not like they had one yet or anything.
Although I guess that would be the place to mug someone cause they'll definitely have their wallets with them and possibly alot of cash.

But still.

it's craziness.

Well, I was going to go and bulldoze a line of people so I would be first to get a PS3. Ya know, flatten them out, take their monnies, then get my system and accessories. Because that bit of technology is the utmost importance. I mean, bah gawd, who cares that it will be out of date in 6 months when a more powerful gaming PC is released? =O

And the PS2 GitS game is pretty cool. Crappy multiplayer mode, bland music, but still a good game. Supports true widescreen too, just like the PS1 GitS game. ^_^
