    Welcome Sony Fans!

    With only a month to go until launch of Sony's latest console, we're moving on from the Next Generation Trilogy thread and into our own space, where Kutaragi is King!

    This thread is for discussion of all aspects the Playstation 3 console- preorders, impressions, game recommendations, questions and general verbiage. And cowbell.

    Warning: there is still a looong time to go for our PAL brethren (i.e myself) so please refrain from big game spoilers here.

    Important links:
    Essential PS2 titles
    -being backwards compatible, all of these titles are also recommended to PS3ers.
    The Next-Gen Trilogy
    -this is our 'Console Wars' style thread. No debating relative merits/critising consoles here please, unless it's in context of someone asking for PS3 advice.
    The Official PlayStation website.
    -the official location for PlayStation information.

    Now commence, Sony fans!

    21 games to be available within 2 months of launch
    Just looking at that, lacks a real 'killer app' to push consoles over the holidays. Though most of them should be high quality. And Resistance (an alien-based squad FPS from Insomniac of Ratchet and Clank fame) is shaping up to be excellent.

    Actually, it has just been Sony's Gamer Day, so a lot of new info has come out.

    Comes with one wireless SIXAXIS controller. Ready to go straight from the box. Estimated battery life: 30 hours/charge.
    No external power supply.
    Comes with ethernet cable for network connectivity.
    Multi-AV cable with composite connectors

    Game RRP: $60
    Controller RRP: $50
    Memory card adaptor RRP: $15 (for using old memory cards for your PS2/PS1 games.)

    30+ titles in development by EA. 10 of those will be delivered in the next 6 months.

    Genji looks cool, like a tricked out and deeper version of Dynasty Warriors.

    The newest Tony Hawk game will allow the use of SIXAXIS to control your skater totally, or not at all.

    By the end of the year, PS1 games will be available to download and play on your PS3. They will be there at launch, but only PSP enabled.

    Apperently Sony is stopping all imports of PS3's to Europe.

    What the hell have you people done to make everyone hate you so much?

    Well there was that incident with the sinking shipment of PS2's in Christmas 2004.....

    :p

    We're just not profitable enough, because we don't all sit down on games all day :p

    Kidding

    Doesn't stop me hating Sony

    I got the Ps2 right at the launch, but the PS3 is $600.00 !
    Some of the games and features look cool, but not cool enughf for me to go deep into debt for. I'll probably be more pumped about it in 2007 when the next gen star wars game comes out.

    See 3 posts up.

    I believe those lawsuits related only to consoles: "Sony claimed that Lik-Sang infringed its trade marks, copyright and registered design rights by selling Sony PSP consoles from Asia to European customers." Lik-Sang have been selling games for years, however they've also been sued by Microsoft and Nintendo for hardware issues in the past few years. So while you can't get the consoles importing games is still an open issue, I think.

    The console itself is region free (which is probably in part due to Sony's loss in court in Australia over modchips.) And here in Australia there is little to no chance of that same lawsuit happening. Competition laws FTW.

    If true, that would be very bad for PS3- only really leaves FF as their main exclusive.
