Aug 18th 2009
39
                                              I agree
Aug 18th 2009
49

1. "Microsoft says price cut wont affect them"
In response to Reply # 0


          

http://www.endsights.com/2009/08/14/microsoft-says-a-ps3-price-cut-wont-affect-their-plans/

There has been a lot of talk about a Playstation 3 price cut lately. But Microsoft’s Chris Lewis has said that if Sony decides to do announce something along these lines, Microsoft won’t be phased and this won’t affect their current plans.

“We are in a good place in terms of the value we offer,” Lewis told MCV.

“We have a plan and a rhythm we are marching to – and we won’t be knocked off that cadence in terms of what the opposition might do.”

And also, another rumor floating about is that Sony might announce a Slim model of their console next week at Gamescom. But another scenario is that Microsoft might decide to implement a price drop of their own. It looks like we’re just going to have to sit tight for a week and see how this all plays out.

34. "I think it'll have full BC, or at least the BC the old 80GB had"
In response to Reply # 19


  

          

which was more than 360's BC.

I think it'll cost $400 or $450 and be positioned as a "premium" unit, kinda the same way they did with the PSP Go and MS did with the Elite.

The 80 GB will drop to $300 (shit, there are signs all over for that price now so that's obvious) and the 160 GB will drop to $400 (which is why I'm thinking the Slim might be $450). I think if the Slim were gonna be $300, we wouldn't see everything pointing to that price for the 80GB.

I think the Slim's HD might end up being a lot bigger than we've seen in systems so far, maybe 320 or even 500 GB.

The Slim COULD end up being $200 with a smaller HD, but I doubt Sony is smart enough (or can afford) to do that now.

I also think we're gonna see an update to their video store, maybe offering a monthly unlimited subscription, as well as GT PSP as a pack in game with the Go.

In response to Reply # 36
Tue Aug-18-09 01:22 AM by RustyShank

  

          

AND full bc? I don't know man
that's sounds out of character for sony
edit:
i agree it'll probably get priced at a premium though
if they put full bc on the slim that would be giving a finger to every gamer that wasnt able to obtain a 60gb

but maybe thats just me

39. "I don't think they can afford to put BC on a 300 dollar slim"
In response to Reply # 37
Tue Aug-18-09 07:24 AM by BigReg

  

          

They had to take out the minimal amount of PS2 guts that made software emulation even possible two years ago to keep the price in check. For them to have slimmed down the form factor, added those pieces back in, AND kept it cheaper in such a short period of time? Major coup for the hardware dudes but imho not happening.

And I don't think they can pull off 100% software based BC yet. PS2 was pretty complex machine for the time, and with all the quirky shortcuts/hardware tricks they did I have a feeling its at the end of the life cycle if ever we see a full software based emu. The original Xbox was a straight forward PC+video card, and even then Microsoft ran into hella problems because of trying to emulate the nvidia card software wise...something as specialized as the PS2...hrm

In response to Reply # 37


  

          

They'd only put BC in a system that costs a premium price, and it looks like it doesn't

You can pre order at kmart already tho, and it's listed at $300, so BC ain't likely if that's the actual price

my wife will tell that I don't spend money on anything for myself besides electronics. Since I've been working out of my home office the last 3 years I end up saving a whole lot of money. Only my wife spends money around here really lol. My boy is the same way. He and I have worked for the same company almost 10 years and now that we work from home all we buy is electronics.

unless there is some benefit to the cooling issues, I would prefer the larger, sleek piece. I don't mind having my PS3 out in the open because it looks like a quality, well designed piece of electronics. That second one? no.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://playstation.joystiq.com/2009/08/17/playstation-network-to-go-offline-tomorrow-8-18/

The PlayStation Network will be undergoing a few hours of downtime tomorrow during what Sony calls "maintenance." The entire PSN will be down from noon EST to 2PM EST. Ignore that this is happening exactly at the same time as Sony's press conference tomorrow. While the PSN is down, PS3 and PSP owners will not be able to access the PlayStation Store or play games online.

Wait, you're not ignoring the fact that this is happening during the press conference? Well, it's time for your conspiracy theories. See you in the comments section.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

im more intrigued if they kept the wi-fi and other ports at the cheaper price point, the 120 gigs was a given.

It's going to be interesting, because the field will be wide open with both machines at the same price point, arguably with the PS3 as the better deal out the box.

They should have been more saavy and thrown in the first Uncharted to sweeten.

There's what, two USB ports on the current PS3s?

They aren't gonna go lower than that.

The price drop is due to significantly decreased production costs.

system I got.

Does your money hat version come with those cables?

Also, while IR is nice, there doesn't seem to be bluetooth on the 360. I think that would be better since it works with more things.

And hey, can you do something about the fact that these 360 controllers don't come with any sort of rechargeable battery, yet cost the same price as the 360 ones?

Yes, there is something for you to hang your hardware hat on, RJ: Sony didn't include a highly limited port technology that is 20 years old and instead opted for the huge and growing bluetooth standard that is gaining more ground each year as more and more developers push the technology. But lord knows M$ won because they stuck with the tried and true IR port, want their users to pay $100 for a wifi adapter when it would be retardedly cheap to include it in the native box, and a PS3 IR adapter, if you choose to live in the stone age, is $20. All praise M$ and the 360, the gaming equivalent to an Audi A4: Stripped down, prone to electrical break downs, horrible resale values and no more exotic than a supped up Jetta (pc).


LOL
IR for the win RJ? You review technology for a living or just work in the mailroom?

because they won't spend the $5 to put something some people will use in their machine

while the other company is valiant and forward thinking for not spending 10 cents to put something in everyone uses. or $5 to put in something that will et it do what says it does on the box. or charge $50 after the fact to enjoy the same features it launched a decade ago.

you're a fan of a company, and an idiot.

SOME PEOPLE?
Yes, this wifi thing is barely a passing fad that some people will clearly abandon and return to the saftey of ethernet cables, right after they get within visible range to turn off their systems with their IR remote. What dead technology are you going to champion next? The VCR? The fax machine?


>while the other company is valiant and forward thinking for

Anyone who can't figure out how to use the six axis to playback a dvd should not own a gaming system. Or be allowed to espouse opinions on technology. *cough*

>or $5
>to put in something that will et it do what says it does on
>the box. or charge $50 after the fact to enjoy the same
>features it launched a decade ago.

I don't follow your $5 argument, but how much is an xbox 360 controller? and it's rechargable and has the range of a bluetooth sixaxis, right? no? oh...

>you're a fan of a company, and an idiot.

Wait, when did I ever say I was a fan of Sony? I'm a fan of forward thinking technology and companies that don't bilk their customers with stripped down, limited products. And if I'm a "fan" of Sony, what does that make a moderator on OKP who shows up like a cold sore in anything PS3 related with a "LOL" as if it is what he lives for?

How do you kill that which has no life?

In response to Reply # 56


  

          

I'm talking about third party controllers. Not one rock band or guitar hero or steering wheel peripheral works on PS3 via bluetooth. Not a one. They all involve plugging an infared adapter in. Only the Sony dual shock controllers use bluetooth. I was playing Rock Band with my boy at his out this past weekend and he had to plug up all this shit for us to play. I'm like damn. Just a little thing that annoys me about PS3.

how many bluetooth pc controllers are are popular?

people bitch about the 360s licensed hardware requirements, but they can build any bluetooth controller for the ps3 they want and STILL don't do it. that should tell you something.

other than headsets, sony brand controllers, and some keyboards, not a damn thing uses bluetooth. It's like what was the whole point of building bluetooth in then? That shit you gotta plug in for Rock Band and Guitar Hero is rediculous. I made the right choice buying all my band games on 360. All I gotta do is grab the guitar off the rack and have it turn on everything like a 360 remote.

i was buying components a new HTPC yesterday and decide that i wanna rock a bluetooth keyboard/mouse for net surfing on the couch. i'm thinking there should be a shit ton of selection by now.

newegg got like one page of bluetooth keyboards, one page of mice. some 12 or so selections on both ends. meanwhile, you have a selection of 88 or so RF joints.

if bluetooth is the next great wireless technology, it's not showing in the marketplace for PC input devices.

In response to Reply # 69


  

          

as far as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, the developers didn't want to use bluetooth because it's more expensive to make and it would leave everybody who had the old controllers out in the cold. Developers really don't want to adapt 2 transmission technologies to one controller. It would take more time and money to have a controller that has both bluetooth and infrared, and you would have to have both to satisfy your customer base until they adapt the new tech.

you don't need anything special from sony to make your controller Bluetooth, they just need to follow the industry standard guidelines like you would for USB.

http://kotaku.com/5340053/surprise-playstation-3-price-drops-100

In a move that no one could have possibly anticipated, Sony announces a price drop along with the news of the PlayStation 3 Slim, with the current 80GB system dropping to $299 until replaced.

It almost doesn't seem worth it, really. The PlayStation 3 slim is right around the corner, selling for $299 with a 120GB hard drive, so why buy the 80GB system for $299? Well, it's bigger, and you might be able to grab it in a bundle if you play yor cards right? Either way, it's your $299 PlayStation 3 option until the Slim hits early next month.

Not mentioned during the press conference, a quick call to GameStop confirms that the 160GB system has dropped to $399 as well, so if you've been holding off on picking one up, now is the time.

They'll probably have bundles with the Phat 80GB. The hard drive size doesn't matter much since you can pop it out and put in a new one (wait, have they said you can do that on the slim, too?).

over the next several months as 360 and PS3 drop prices and keep dropping killer software. Nintendo should be prepping a $50 price drop for the holidays imo.

The Wii ain't selling to people who care about "killer titles" that involve complicated controls and shooting people.

You can't even say cost; 360 been cheaper than Wii for a good minute now and that didn't do them any good.

Shit, they didn't even release different colors for the thing yet.

Wii and ps3/360 go after a different audience so the Wii isn't in a lot of trouble, but with the recent price cuts I think Wii should go down to 200.

$40 more than a game on the PS3 or even less used.
Until the Sony enables BC via firmware and put PS2 games on PSN, buy a damn PS2.

If you have a launch PS3, like me... YOU ARE STRAIGHT.
You paid the price and got much more than the noobs are getting.

Launch PS3 heads, you chose WISELY.

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2009/06/mole-exclusive-ps3-360-price-drops-coming-this-fall.ars

the mole has a good track record as far as the rumors go. but while you can make the argument that the ps3 info was more on the "logical assumption" side in line with the rumors, i didn't see anything about the Xbox Pro model phaseout before this article.

to install new hard disk drives. I'm not finding any bays in these press images... I'm just waiting for someone to confirm or deny it.

I would not put it past Sony to take that out... I mean they still have 160gb consoles to move and you could upgrade your slim to 500GB and still pay less than you would for a 160GB ps3

you know if joystiq has asked sony yet?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://kotaku.com/5340315/is-there-a-250gb-ps3-slim-as-well

The PS3 Slim has been announced, and it's coming in one size: 120GB. Well, it is at the moment, anyway. We could soon be seeing a 250GB model.

A couple of FCC reports dating back to May has revealed that when submitting the console for testing, Sony provided four units: the vanilla 120GB retail machine, two variants of a 120GB dev kit model, and a 250GB retail unit.

Interesting. Haven't heard squat about this 250GB model. A pricier, grander model for the holiday season, perhaps? Something to be unveiled during Sony's TGS press conference? Who knows. We've reached out to Sony for comment, and will update if we hear back.

Why even release a 250gb joint? Anyone who needs more space than 120 will be savy enough to buy their own hard drive and install it. I think a 250gb model shouldn't be released. Cuz you know they're gonna make it $399 if they do.

Do we need to stop yapping about backwards compatibility?
"It's not coming back, so let me put that on the table," Koller says with an air of finality. But it's all people ever talk about!

"It's not as big as a purchase intent driver as you may be hearing," he claimed. "We've got such a substantial lineup of titles on the PS3; most people are buying the PS3 for PS3 games. They've buying it for PS3 games and Blu-ray movies."

"That won't be returning," he repeats.

At 299, I'd probably cop the old one. Its not like the
slim really saves THAT much space.

The slim has more HD space.

I could honestly give a fuck about "sleekness."

The HD space does matter

If you can get a bundle with two free games or something, that might be worth more than a hard drive (which you can easily buy and replace if you really need the space).

The failure rate for 360s is at least 5x higher, maybe even more. I know very few people who had PS3s die on em; bout as many as I knew having original Xbox or Dreamcasts die on them and no where near early PS2 failures and especially not 360 failures.

I've had mine for 2 months now and I really like what the system has to offer. I'm not a big gamer so having blu ray and internet is an added bonus for me. Plus you can upgrade to a 500 gig hard drive if you are a hardcore gamer or if you want to save music and movies on the ps3. Oh I like being able to recharge my controllers without using batteries....lol. Sometimes I watch movies online on my ps3, fall asleep for the night, wake up and the ps3 is still running great and mad quiet. As far as online gameplay, all I want to do is play cats and talk here and there. I've had no lag or any problems doing that with psn. Having an xbox 360 was a good experience and I don't regret copping one 2 years ago but IMO, the ps3 is better.

DAMN!

These things are gonna move during the holiday season. I see it being very close between the 360 and PS3...with PS3 taking over thereafter. Too many problems wih the 360, plus everyone already has one.

the OG looks better

the slim is good cause now it will allow corny ass niggas to finally experience the power of the PS3
i just prefer the design of the OG but really you can't lose with either
only thing losing now imo is the 360

If you need that for your self esteem, that says a lot
about you. I get my self esteem boost from other 'tings

>the slim is good cause now it will allow corny ass niggas to

>i just prefer the design of the OG but really you can't lose

I mean, you do have a more expensive, uglier system
with less memory, so do what you gotta do to justify
owning it.

The only people who can talk shit are the people with
the launch models who have BC.

Everyone else just better kneel and respect the slim,
because its cheaper with more memory and doesn't look
like a fucking star destroyer.

I'm not a woman, and so could care less really about
"sleekness," but the old model was seriously hideous.

As for being "cheap" - everyone know people with real
money don't buy dumbass shit off GP. Especially when it
looks like a microwave

Nope, but the Wii sales already told you that you're wrong;
people who aren't *that* into gaming are capable of winning
you the video game battle. Sony's problem has been that
PS3 has been owned SOLELY by hardcore gamers and techies,
which is cool, but is not going to win you the race.

Niggas like me who like gaming, can afford any system,
but just ain't gonna drop 4 bills on a system off GP
been laughing all this time like "Nigga, FOH. I ain't
buying that shit."

The price drop is huge for people like me. We the ones
who can win PS3 the race, but haven't bothered, because
we really don't fucking care that much.

Now that its in a reasonable price range, WITH MORE memory,
I feel better about buying one - more bang for the buck,
with better games out, with more Blu Rays, etc.

as usual they did very little improvements on it besides making it smaller (at least the other the ps2 came with a built in internet plug).

I have both systems and my ps3 was free and i don't care about who "wins the race" i just want good games on both systems.

And I'm talking about Dentists and corporate lawyers
and niggas who make well over 100K per(*well* over)

Niggas in here have such low self esteems that y'all think
overpaying for shit is a sign that you a baller.....lol...
exactly why none of y'all will ever truly ball. That's some
low self-esteem shit...the type of niggas who buy bottles
for hoes in the club and leave with none of them. Shit is
honestly sad to me.

I mean, I had a wii and like 5 games(gave it away)....that's
already more than the cost of launch PS3. I felt better owning
a Wii because I felt better about supporting Nintendo's product.
they wasn't on some "holier than thou" shit, which is why
they ethered the fuck out of everyone...marketed to regular
people,made they shit *very* affordable. Shit like that matters
to responsible shoppers.

I'm a fairly responsible buyer. I try not to buy
shit that's inflated artificially off GP. To charge
400 bills for 80 gigs in the middle of a crisis(that
doesn't affect me personally) is plain greedy and
irresponsible.

That 100 dollar difference matters to me -- Sony is
making their shit more affordable(that 100 dollars
can go a long way) and that the company is waking
up to reality. 120 gigs for one hundred dollars less
is much more reasonable and it tips the scales in my
favor.

I will likely be copping a 120gb slim. I can make better use
of the memory and Blu Ray - i know more about streaming, have
more video and music than I did before, and more Blu Rays
are out now.

Paying 500 bills before was plain silly to me -- no blu
rays were out, and the PSN didn't have half the features it
does now.

Go look up how much memory the current model at $299
has(the one that was $399 yesterday) and compare it to
how much the slim has.

In response to Reply # 198


  

          


Just admit you're wrong. I mean, geez.

All this because you all don't like me and have
ugly PS3s.

DVD contains memory, just like a cassette tape has
memory. Anything that can be written to, whether the
writing is temporary or permanent, has "memory."

And a hard drive most certainly contains memory.

Just like a floppy disk.

I mean, there's a reason why niggas used to BOOT computers
with floppy disks -- they used to use the memory from the
disk to run their operation commands.

This is getting gay

I think what's happening here is that O_E is the one using
the more purer definitions, while y'all are going off of
techie slang, which means I win.

In response to Reply # 235

He was using memory in the broad sense of the term. This is just arguing semantics but I guess I can agree that when we are speaking in terms of "technicality" the word memory refers to RAM. However, he was not incorrect in his statement just inaccurate.

Swipe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-volatile_memory
Non-volatile memory, nonvolatile memory, NVM or non-volatile storage, is computer memory that can retain the stored information even when not powered. Examples of non-volatile memory include read-only memory, flash memory, most types of magnetic computer storage devices (e.g. hard disks, floppy disks, and magnetic tape), optical discs, and early computer storage methods such as paper tape and punch cards.

Also see: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-non-volatile-memory.htm

244. "True."
In response to Reply # 242


  

          

However, that does not mean that Hard Disk Drives aren't a form of memory (which is what he was arguing). It is just more accurate to say "storage" instead of "memory" when referring to Secondary Storage. What I gather from this discussion is that the definitions of what memory is, are varied...

If you look lower in the article you posted under "Characteristics of Storage", you see the following:

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_data_storage#Volatility)
Volatility
-Non-volatile memory
Will retain the stored information even if it is not constantly supplied with electric power. It is suitable for long-term storage of information. Nowadays used for most of secondary, tertiary, and off-line storage. In 1950s and 1960s, it was also used for primary storage, in the form of magnetic core memory.

Referring back to an above statement in the article you posted (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_data_storage#Secondary_storage) we see that "Secondary Storage" refers to Hard Disk Drives, flash drives and etc. "Storage" is a more accurate term than "Non-volatile memory", however referring to Hard Disk Drives as memory is not incorrect as many have claimed.

As you can see, this means that O_E is not wrong. Now, what does this all mean in the grand scheme of things? Nothing. I mean, we can keep trying to prove each other wrong but just know the articles pretty much show that everyone was correct in their responses. O_E was correct in his statement that HDDs are memory (in the broader sense of the term) and everyone else had a right to be confused because he was using an inaccurate term in a technical setting. To call anyone a fool over such a misunderstanding is foolish in itself. This has nothing to do with a person's intelligence but everything to do with the plight of the English language. English is plagued with many of these little discrepancies... :/

If there's more arguing to be had, it's to be done with the citations above and not with the people on this board...

In response to Reply # 162


  

          

i didn't say shit about being a baller or anything in your long ass insecure rant 'cause your feelings were hurt because I stated my opinion.

I am cheap as hell. I got my 360 for half the price because I had a deal I could trade in my ps2 and get half off, that was in '06. I got my ps3 for free but was about to buy it based off of MGS4, which was always the system seller for me. I've had them for years now and if you compare having blu-ray and being able to buy whatever game came out to saving 100 it's a nobrainer in my book.

back to point one: I don't see the big deal of waiting 3 years and if your coming from a cheap angle think of the gas, movie tickets, resturants etc. spent on food in that 3 years that wouldn't have been spent with a good game or a Blu-Ray movie in ones home.... game over. go practice your ice grill in the mirror.

That's the stupidest argument I ever heard.

If anything, time spent on the PS3 is occupied
by other at-home activities that ain't cost a
red cent.

Going to the movies is not, at all, affected by
no video game, because I don't build entire nights
around no goddamn video game.

Plus, I tend to go to the movies with either close
guy friends and their families who live in other cities
(meaning, I only go when I'm those cities on business
or whatever) or with pussy.

If I play PS3 with guy friends on-line, it'll be when
I'm in my city and they are in theirs(not affected
by movies).

And the other times I go to the movies,
the thing next to me has a pretty vagina(none of
whom even HAVE PS3s). That will still go on when I
have a PS3.

If my PS3 replaces anything, it will be other TV related
and other frivolous activities -- watching DVDs, watching
television, reading comics

So seriously - shush

>go practice your ice grill in the
>mirror.

Your fingertips hurt after typing that, doggie

You the one with a scrunched up face




But seriously -






















































































































































Why you mad for?

I mean you can never keep up with technology, 2 years from now they might have the ps3 ultra slim with 500gigs for $300. That's how technology rolls. I got a 80 gig ps3 for my birthday this past June. Shit I'm about to cop 500gigs for like $80 and call it a game console.

DAMN!

187. "I spent 2Gs on gaming last year but I ain't buy a PS2 til the slim"
In response to Reply # 158


  

          

I don't think anybody in their right mind would say I'm really not into gaming, I just wasn't gonna buy a PS2 til they did something to make me want one (which happened to be making it the size of two issues of Wax Poetics on top of each other). I had a Dreamcast, a Gamecube and an Xbox so I was good.
