Interesting points so far.
22 Launch games
$60 price tag for 1st party games
The first 500,000 units of PS3 will ship with Talladega Nights on Blu-ray.
No HD cables in the box :rolleyes: Composite cables included. Nice one Sony.
Cant be bothered looking for any more

Nothing really that new. Nice to see Sony come through on the PSP/PS3 compatiblity as far as file sharing is concerned.

Nope, don't remember hearing about that at this press conference.

If that is something they plan on doing it will probably be after launch. Sometime in 2007...maybe later.

Bunch of bull, whats the point of an HD console without an HD cable?

Well, you know, not everyone has a hd tv. In fact, I'm quite sure the vast majority of the ones buying a ps3 won't have it for quite some time.

And I can assure you there are a freaking lot of people here who bought a 360 without a hd tv, and that are going to buy a ps3, too...

See, a hd tv without hd content is useless.

Oh, and here you can't find a true (that is, capable of handling 1080p) hd tv for the sake of it. Most "hd" tv are still 1388x7-something... Can't recall the precise resolution right now.

There's a few, plenty more on the site. Not cheap, sure, but they're definitely out there. The PS3 and X-Box 360 are marketed as HD gaming consoles. It is retarded that Sony is not including HD cables with the system. You also do not need a 1080p HDTV to get "HD" gaming. The X-Box 360 runs all its HD games currently at 720p which looks great and is the standard HD resolution on most HDTVs available at the moment.

Smartass. Except for the fact that here there is no Best Buy at all ;)

It could be possible that some really high-end, high fidelity -oriented small store has some, but I wouldn't count on it. :)

As far as the console being touted as hd gaming console, who cares ? I mean, I reiterate, most people who buy them don't have a hd tv (not even 720p ones), so to them, if having a (useless) hd cable means a higher price, not having forced down their throats is a good thing, imho.

My 32" Sony bravia 720p HDTV came with a nice "flyer" where it said "Ready for PS3". But i guess its not TRUE HD sony?

Eh. I find it quite interesting that every single lcd/plasma tv sold here has a nice "hd ready" sticker on it, but none goes above 720p.

Technically, they're right, 720p is sufficient to brand a tv as hd, but c'mon...

Slightly OT, though. ;)

Because the $5 cable is far too expensive for Sony to buy and put in the box.

As some hi-def guy would tell you, a $5 cable doesn't really qualify as a hd cable.

That said, it would probabily suffice for those so-called "hd" TVs...



Edit: corrected error.

Well if it's an HDMI cable I think it will suffice.

There's a thread where it was explained by Evilchris and GGX.

So how much do you have to spend on a cable for it to qualify as a hd cable? You can get cheap hdmi cables for $5-10 on ebay. If does dont qualify as hd cables I dont know what do.

I didn't say it wouldn't qualify for me, I said that for some hi-def fanatics it wouldn't.

Sorry, just noticed I said "as any hi-def guy", my fault.

Well I've heard and seen 1080p TVs and 720p side by side, and the difference isn't all that big, but that only applies to TVs that are under 40". 40" and above you'll definately see a difference. There are a bunch of 1080p TVs out there, but I don't think we're going to see true-HD in the mainstream until there's a real market for it, not just the high-end. When we get hd-dvds and bluray, then we'll see real hd-tvs. ;)

Blu-Ray or HD-DVDs and 1080p still make no odds on a screen smaller than 40". Even the current setups out there will crisply and sharply cover upto 37" in these formats. Alot of people just don't want TVs bigger than 32" in their living rooms or what not.

40" + TVs will always remain an enthusiast type deal, whilst you got bitches and wives nagging about TVs being too big in a room and ruining the decal. That's usually the real problem, and one that isn't going to go away for the next 50 odd years LOL

720p and 1080i are "True" HD. Sony can't change the definition of HD.

720p is HD. HD is HD. There is no "full" or "partial" HD as Sony have tried to lead you to believe. 1080i, 720p, and 1080p are all HD.

Sure, they're all part of the HD specs. But then, imho, a tv that only does 720p shouldn't be branded hd, it may support part of the spec, but surely not all.

See, the point is, people is buying these "hd ready" tv thinking that "hey, it's hd, we're gonna watch those oh-so-wonderful-hd movies with our brand new hd-dvd player". Except that they're only getting the lowest possible res of the HD spectrum.

Provided that I think that if someone can't do a little research before spending 1000+ euro on a tv, not to mention the hd-dvd/blu-ray player, then it's a moron and it's only his fault, I still think that it should be clearly stated whether a tv support the full range of hd resolutions or not. Simple as that.
