OK, here's some better news: PS3 to be shown before E3.

Company president Ken Kutaragi outlined a schedule for the system in a speech given during the conference. SCE would like to unveil the system, referred to in slides as "Next System," at a premier party to take place some time in fiscal year 2004 (prior to April 2005). This will be followed by showings at next year's E3 and Tokyo Game Show events where Kutaragi hopes to have many titles playable.

Hey! Thats even better news!




Here is what I'm really hoping to see in the PS3:
1. Internal hard drive (of at least 100 GB or so)
2. A wireless AND wired network adapter built on
3. Four game controller ports

Here is what I'm really hoping to see in ALL future PS3 games
1. Every game to have a widescreen 16x9 support
2. Every game to display in higher resolutions 720p AND 1080i

wow sony going native 4 controller ports? That's biggest news possible regarding the PS3

The rest is probably the usual bla bla crap about rendering a real human in 2 seconds bla bla crap as the pre ps2 launch. Sony spews so much crap about how powerful bla bla its console will become but in the end the usual.

Here's my wishlist for all the consoles. Whichever one provides the best combination of these features as well as games that I like, will get my money.

1)Hard Drive must allow for near infinite game saves, enough virtual memory for one game, and room to save a sizeable amount of custom soundtracks. 8-12GB would be fine for this. Don't make it too large, or it jacks up the ssytem price as well as gives devs an excuse to release beta software to "patch later."

2)Wireless constollers by default. I know some people think these are terrible, and so did I from the old Genesis/SNES days. However, my wife just recently bought a GameCube Wavebird, and I can't go back to a wired controller.

I'd like to see the controllers support rumble features, and feature rechargeable battery packs (like the GBA SP or a cell phone), and come with a desktop charger. The system should allow for up to 8+ controllers, so we can go back to the old school multiplayer games, but finally without a multi-tap.

3)Internet play ready out of the box. I don't mean internet capable (like DC and XBox, wait a year for net games to hit). I mean that games can be played online out of the box from day one. I also want the option of free net play, like what's available on the PS2 and PC. Yea, this rules out XBox2, but I don't care. There's enough interest from me in single player games to get an XB2 if they cover points 1 and 2, as well has have games that I want.

One think i absolutly believe all consoles will need to be successful is HDTV and high-resolution support. Falling short in this area could easily cripple the system 2 or 3 years down the road.

I just hope that PS3 has a third party GPU unit this time around instead of making one themselves.

Though it all doesn't matter. It's always the one that is released last who gets the crown.

Yes! I like that!!

I love the GC Wavebird and the Logitech wireless PS2 gamepad. Those are very good wireless controllers.

A wireless controller that comes with a game console w/ rechargable batteries would be awesome!

I fail to understand why people buy the PS2 in such numbers when it is clearly the most inferior console of the 3 available, not to mention the vast catalogue of bland identikit sequels.

It has the largest library of games from almost any genre you can think of appealing to most every market available.

Is it that hard to understand?

looks like the xbox next is going to be playinging the role of Dreamcast next time round..lets just hope that microsoft dont follow sega and pull the plug early again.
(i really need to buy one these things just see the power supply-think about the components they are supposed to be stuffing into this thing - then try and imagine the size of power supply, and then imagine fitting that into a home console)

as for the ps3 dropping from 512mb of ram to 256mb...when doom3 is already recommending 2g of ram...(released 2004 - PS3 released 2006)

and i really dont care if its got 64 pipelines , i want min. of 1g of ram.
