I think he was just back from techno clubs that's why he's wearing white gloves (nana2)

I really like the high gloss surface :) . Only negative thing is that it vill be very sensitive to scratches I'm afraid...

I think he seems like a nice guy. But damn, that thing will get dirty quick :)

Let's get dirty (nana2) but honestly who's gonna carry it, touch it... there are some ports which will get dirty: near the on button, memory card bay... and that's all imo.

Yeah the only time i think ill touch it, is when plugging the usb cables in to recharge or putting a memory stick in. Other than that, I think I'm more worried about dust. (my black lian-li has to be wiped down like every week cause the top of it gets a light coat of dust; though the blowhole fan on top may add to that im not sure)

But overall I think I like black electronics better, they look very clean when they are...uhh...clean. lol
I think every piece of tech i have is black, silver, or both. Even my cellphone.

LoL did you read some of the comments the video has gotten? Someone said that Sony copied the X-button of the Xbox360! :D That guy sure hasn't used a wireless controller in awhile since they have to have an on/off-button. ^^ It's great that they're using USB-ports so that you might be able to connect an xbox360 controller to your ps3(might paint one black if possible).
Otherwise it looks neat, but it's gonna get dirty as most electrical equipment collect alot of dust. And I don't like the touch-screen panel; they always seem to have problems(my stove has a touch-screen panel and even a little dirt can keep it from working correctly).

It will be interesting in seeing how that touch screen panel works. I have a touchscreen electric stove myself, it's pretty responsive id say 95% of the time if you're not sloppy; what i mean by sloppy is that one accidental touching of another button usually can change the temp or somthing like that (It's very sensitive).

After watching the video the 2 things that I likely immediately is that you do not need a "Play and Charge" kit to recharge the wireless PS3 controllers and that the AC adapter is integrated internally.

I suppose I never even thought about this hard enough. Remember during the e3 press conference, kaz said the ps3 was "Clear Black"?

Well the turns out, the ps3 is actually somewhat transparent.

from another forum
tell em the piano black PS3 is semi transparent
it doesnt show in most pictures because most digital cameras lack the quality to show it of
I had to put the camera in manual mode and tinker with the settings to get it to show
what you see is a huge fan that circulates the air trough the unit so it blows out from the vents on the side

and if that wasnt weird enough, you get your own cleaning solution with the ps3. The ps3 will have a polyester coating. A special polishing liquid will be available to prevent scratches

watch the gametrailers video again, when he lifts the memory card lid up, you can actually see right through it.

Hey that's pretty cool. So about every few weeks I'd have to polish up the PS3, lol.

Yeah I never would have noticed if I didnt see somebody call it out. It seems like you have to be very close to the ps3 in order to see inside, or in very bright light.

In my opinion Sony could have skimped on the fancy plastic shell and lowered the damn price of the PS3.

If it's gonna cost that much it might as well look "fancy".

Word is it that that the PS3 comes stocked with one of these (http://www1.mooremedical.com/index.cfm?PG=CTL&CS=hom&FN=ProductDetail&PID=10543) in one of the rear compartments for use directly after purchase of the $600 console.

Ya know it does look quite nice.

I still like the 360 controller better, but that's only because got use to its controller configuration. I use to like dual shock quite a bit, I just could never really get into the groove for FPS gaming on a dual shock.

Wasn't the PS3 meant to have duel HDMI outputs? either my eyes are bad or there is only one on the back of that console.
Looks nice but a little large, but I don't realy go off what the console looks like hey I bought an Xbox :)
If the console delevers the goods it can look like a cardboard box to me :D, I'll be interested to see how good it is online, as that's now the main reason I have a console... LIVE rocks. Hope they can match it.

People mangle their stuff. The PS3 will assuredly look like ass in most households.

It has such a cheap plastic look. I wish they used the same case material that is used to make receivers, even though i know that would be too expensive.
