So who's taking the plunge and getting a PS3 on launch date??

Last time I bought a console on launch date was a PS1...

well PS3 has been out over here since last november, i went on the launch date 16 hours before it was released (at walmart which did a midnight launch so really almost 24 hours before most stores got them) and all the lines were already packed, at like every store around.

by january you started seeing them in stores because every one they got before christmas dissapeared to some mom spoiling her baby kid with one.

so my buddy got one in January. but there really aren't a whole lot of games out for it right now. I'm just waiting to get mine when Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out, and at that time Assassins Creed will be out

As much as I love computer games, there's got to be better things to do than play a Playstation. Costs a shed load, eats your time up like a motherfucker and leaves you with that 'I've wasted my day' feeling at night.

I've got to say the older i get, the more i feel like this. I guess it's due to having played a lot (ok an excess!) of computer games years ago.

£425?
Paying more than the Americans?
For games already out on the 360?
Most of which looking better on the 360?
As well as rubbish launch games?

Sod that.
I'll buy one when it's cheaper, and when it has games I care about!
Little Big Planet looks smegging amazing.
Every level I make will have Mithras album cover banners scattered :p

It just looks so stupidly fun.
And the music I've heard for it is brilliant.

because graphically it isn't better....it can't even do half of the things that the ps3 can do.

and i don't get why people are all for the 360 just because its cheaper, they don't get that what sets the ps3 off from the 360 (in price) is that its a blu ray player. Once Microsoft start building the 360 with the HD DVD player it will cost the SAME as a ps3. If you go to the store right now and buy a Blu Ray player it will cost about $600 why not just buy one that plays video games to.

Once the blu ray technology gets cheaper the prices will drop.

Remember how crap the DVD player the PS2 has? The one that never worked, and broke constantly? It's going to be the same on the PS3 with Blu Ray.

It's going to be cheap and unreliable. I'd definitely not buy a PS3 just because its a Blu Ray player that plays games. It's a games console with Blu Ray thrown in, simple as that.

Actually strangely enough, although I'd usually agree with you, the PS3 has come out on top amongst Blu-Ray players quality-wise - even supposedly better than the once £1000 Samsung player.

Whether it's unreliable only time will tell. Hopefully it will better the reliability record of the Xbox 360 (touch wood my 360 ain't broke yet) - at least Microsoft have been replacing them free of charge though. One friend of mine went through 4 of them haha, unlucky sod!

To be honest Blu-Ray don't mean shit when it comes down to it. However 2 teraflops of processing power running in 9 threads simultaneously does matter. It's only a matter of time before some huge titles come out on PS3. The signs are there even at launch if you take a look at Motorstorm.

Main argument for me with 360 is that I can get hold of any game for a fiver hehe
:twisted:
