Playstation 3 Revealed at E3

Have fun looking it over:

System - http://ps3.ign.com/articles/614/614727p1.html
System + controller - http://ps3.ign.com/articles/614/614736p1.html
Specs - http://ps3.ign.com/articles/614/614682p1.html
Backward capatibility - http://ps3.ign.com/articles/614/614620p1.html

The new controller is absolutely terrible.

Pretty much what I expected.

PS2 : PS1
PS3 : PS2

At least we got backwards compatability and wireless controllers.

I mean its about freaking time we got rid of wires.

From the front it looks like a minifridge. Even though it's nowhere near thick enough.

And the controller looks like this crappy-ass PC gamepad I used to have.

But hopefully it won't be glitch and overheat-ridden like PS2.

Edit: And who did GOOD, radio wireless controllers first? Nintendo. And for that matter, the + Thing, rumble, and joysticks.

It looks like a laminator. I'm really disappointed so far... and the controller. The controller! They should have kept the DualShock. All I have to say is WTF^^. Well, never judge a book by its cover, I guess.

Does the controller not look a bit "gamecubey" to anyone?

Hey, they used Spider-man (movie) font for the logo!

*looks at PS3*

Ooooh, how futuristic. Nice way to copy the Gamecube controller. Imitation is the highest form of flattery though, right?

...Actually, it's a clone of old microsoft Sidewinder controllers.

yeah as big an xbox fan as i am, this system is gonna COMPLETELY OWN the 360, the graphics are so unfreakin' believeable, and i just looks like it s gonna be way better

Has anyone noticed that all three systems (PS3, X-Box 360, and Revolution) can stand vertically now. It seems the idea of a vertical stand is becoming contagious.

That controller...the handles...looks like some kind of MadCatz 3rd party controller or something. The fact that it's backwards compatible is cool. The system itself looks very futuristic, I don't think it would really fit in with my room Big Grin

I have to admit that as a PC gamer, seeing QUAKE 4 on the top banner was a bit more exciting. Roll Eyes

I guess to a few people it seems like a pretty cool design, but I'm not feeling the PS3 Grill.

I like its look, and it seems like it might be able to dom the competition, or at least hold its own with Microsoft now.

This is a tad frightening though....






Seem familiar anyone? Shocked

It seems vaguely similar, but enough to constitute a rip-off? Hardly. Especially since PS3 can stand vertically as well. But too bad all of the older systems look like that...
R and D 05-25-2005 07:58 AM
it's like the took the old one and stretch it out. i guess they were running out of ideas? Confused But hey! this could mean that old school is coming back! Cool yeah! *does a little jig* Anime Smile
Travis Bickle 05-25-2005 02:46 PM


But still, I'm getting it. Games will be expensive for the next gen systems! $70 bucks a game is reported by EGM...
