Sony Playstation 3 Comes Out on Friday 11/17/06!!!

What's good folks! The Sony Playstation 3 is finally coming out in the United States This Friday 11/17/06. There are two different bundles available which are the $499 core system with a 20GB Hard Drive while the Deluxe system rings in at $599 and includes a 60GB Hard Drive and a Universal Card reader and a Wireless networking adapter. They can both play Playstation 1 and 2 games and the controller is almost identical to the previous installments of the machine. This time there is no rumble feature for the controller but instead a motion sensing capabilities (WACKNESS!!!). But at least they are wireless like the xbox 360's controller. They can both play Blu-Ray DVD's straight out of the box which is a big plus. You can also get free online gaming service as apposed to xbox live where you must pay an anual fee (but you get more out of it as well). All in all, the graphics of both systems look pretty identical. Here are some videos that show this example. I would buy a PS3 if there were some exclusive titles for the machine that I wanted or if it looked better than xbox 360 games. As a matter of fact, the game I just purchased, Gears of War, looks better than any game on the PS3 at this current time. 90% of the games I am interested will be available for both consoles with the same graphics. But, if I didn't have a 360 right now, I would consider the purchase....Good luck to all those people who will be on line 2-3 days in advance at your nearest Best Buy, Circuit City, Toys R Us, PC Richards, etc....
