Does anybody want a PS3?

    Newer Older

    With a day until the PS3 launches in Europe the Newcastle Virgin Megastore still has 72 left to pre-order. Is there any point?

    And I still can't get a Wii.

      I have a Wii and I would kill for a PS3. IMHO everybody wants one.. they just can't afford/justify one.. you'd have to be an idiot not to want a PS3. Jealousy is a curse. I stand cursed.

      My brother got a ps3 last week at circuit city(they had plenty in stock), after 2 days the newness wore off and he realized it looked about the same as his 360, even when running off hdmi to his 42" plasma and is wondering about taking it back. With the service plan, ps3 and tax he wasted over 1000$ on it.

      I didnt think he should get the service plan but the lady said they have had alot of comebacks, she thought because of new technology

      You keep telling yourself that. I can honestly say I'm satisfied with the Wii and only the Wii. Absolutely no interest in the PS3, but that's just me.

      I know Flickr is the worst place to start a flame war, but cyclonejack needs to wake up (or go to sleep to rest his mind, depending how you look at it). "Yeah, the Xbox that is out to attempt and be better than the already powerful PS3." How is it out to be more powerful than the PS3 if it came out a year earlier? I'm not taking sides, but am just pointing out that you make no sense. You sound as if you have details on the XBox 720000 and PS4. Please, fill us in.

      I don't want one, even if I could afford it I still wouldn't get one. I don't really want Bluray, i'd rather HD-DVD or DVD since they have faster read times, the PS3 is losing exclusives and the games are going multi-platform to the 360, the 360 still has better graphics, the cell isn't very impressive as a gaming cpu, linux runs like on a pentium3, there's no decent titles on the ps3 yet, the six-axis is a bad knockoff of the wii & there's no force feedback.

      No thanks, Wii60 > PS3

      I heard a rumour that shops have been stockpiling Wiis for sale this Friday in an attempt to outsell the PS3 on its opening week. I have no idea if this is true or not but if so you should all be able to get one tomorrow.

      Plenty of Digg Xbox fanboys out today! I don't get it, if Sony go to the effort of making sure that there is plenty of stock they are criticized for not selling. However if they were to follow Nintendo's strategy everyone would be saying that they screwed up the launch...

      Personally I'll be getting the PS3. I already own a Wii which I love, but Nintendo are running out of good titles already.

      Agret: you prefer HD-DVD yeah I can understand, but I can't understand if you prefer DVD??? it never enough, we need more space for larger data, even camera got bigger megapixel every year, wake-up!

      why cell is no impressive on linux game is because the game is not design for cell processor. they don't even use 100% of cell processor in ps3 game's yet.

      I have PS3, and I have wii, when my friends come I play wii with them, but I can enjoy my PS3 alone.

      Still considering to buy 360 (but I don't want to regret after I heard a rumors that 360 will release a new limited edition console, which including HDMI output... let see if in the future it will release another limited edition for build-in HD-DVD. when I buy console it mean you don't need to upgrade, when I buy PC is upgradeable. I think microsoft got misunderstanding about console world and pc world)
      I 'll wait for the limited edition.

      I hate the fanboy crap. In the last generation there were so many amazing games and it was largly due to the fact there is compitition and the only way that great games will continue to be made is if this continues. I personally plan on owning all of this generation of consoles I know this is not for everyone but can't you at least that other consoles each have their own great games; MS = Halo, GOW Sony= MGS, God of war, naughty dog, and Nintendo will always have their own niche and a sizable one at that

      We have been telling games producers and console manufacturers for years that its not necessarily the graphics we are interested in, its how well the game plays which is the most important. Nintendo have nailed it this time around and good for them.

      Seriously though, when I heard that the six-axis wireless control needs to be plugged in when you first start up for them to work I almost couldn't believe it. That’s just incompetent.

      nope lol wii rocks , just check out www.wiifit.net for example :D

      all fanboy comments aside, 360 + wii is the most for your money and best of both worlds, in my opinion.

      although I would buy a PS3 just to see what team ICO makes and to play GoW 3... they definitely aren't out of the race yet :)

      I wanted a PS3 over a year ago, but by December last year I got fed up waiting and got an Xbox 360. I don't regret my decision at all as I think it's great.

      Sorry Sony. You kept me waiting too long!
