  • getting excited about the new ps3 thread

    New playstation 3 slim out this week (3/9). Lower price. ($499).
    Built in wifi and blu-ray playback.


    Think i may need to pick one up...

    I was a bit dubious on the blu-ray / hd-dvd playback quality improvement until i got a blu-ray burner for the pc and tried it out on the TV. Still pics don't do it justice, it really is clearer.


    want...

    i has old ps3.. need more racing games for it.. or UT3 (keyboard and mouse goodness to smash the controller freaks)

    It's slimmer and cheaper, right?

    Just in time for christmas.. well done Sony, market share = urz.
    comic sans is OKAY!

      I hope with the rising popularity it'll mean we get more exclusive games that use every last pixel.

      I wasn't impressed when I discovered that GTA4 uses a resolution only slightly above SD.

          $500 for a blu-ray machine that plays Wipeout HD is a bargain.

            Blu-Ray player, cheaper, wifi, etc etc etc.
            And why would you want backward compatibility to an inferior product?

              so what's new? wifi?

              Consoles are always discounted during their lifecycle. Wasn't the PS3 about a grand when first released?

              I won't be rushing out to buy one

                Nah they always had Wifi/Blu-Ray, but it's cheaper and thinner now and less of a finger-print magnet.

                Edit: I got rid of my old one but am interested in picking up one of these.

                    FF7 *is* out, and it plays on PS3 AND PSP. I'm playing it on both atm. Goto the Playstation Store and check it out, it's only 15 bux.

                    5 hunj wing wangs is still pretty cheap for a blu-ray player, if nothing else. Having said that, there's nothing wrong with my normal PS3, so I'm in no rush to go out and buy a slimline. But ALSO having said that, I've had the 2nd iteration playstations all the way thru too, starting off with the dunny ps1, to the PSOne, then the PS2, then the PS2 Slimline, and then the PS3 (and PSP) so now I guess I WILL be getting a slimline, but only when the current workhorse dies in the arse.

                      Yeah if you have a ps3 you don't need one.

                      but as said, cheap blu-ray, and it plays ps3 games.

                      backwards compat is over-rated - i have a library of over 40 genuine ps1 games, and was keen on backwards compat when i bought the ps2. i've used it 3 times in the past 8 years.

                      and i have a ps1 and ps2 anyway if i get desperate.

                      and even if i didn't i could get one from ebay for 50 bucks or whatever...

                        plus the 120 gig hdd, don't forget run a copy of PS3 server and stream music, vid etc over wifi or ethernet to it.

                        Just checked out VidZone on my PS3, music vids, quite good, can create playlists etc. They have their own playlists, for example Funny vids, just watched a few on there, Bloodhound gang, Weird Al Yankovic etc. Good machines, oh yeah and the blu-ray. Cheap really when you consider what it does.

                          Ah, the good old days. Wip3out

                          havent tried the newer versions apartfrom Fusion, which sucked because the tracks were so wide it making it incredibly easy

                            Lol, Wip3out, the good old days? Worst of the series.

                            Try the mother of all orsmness that is Wipeout 2097.

                            Wipeout HD, get on that shit. You really gotta tap that.

                              Actually I had wipeout 3 se. but i found 2097 not so enjoyable after the newer one. but irrelevant nevertheless
