    I still won't buy one...

    My HTPC will be all I need for media. And my 360 is all I need for gaming.

    no it means a huge pricedrop and more sales for sony and microsoft hiding in the corner crying because they lost
    out on the christmas season of 2008 and are going to pump out half-arsed games and allow 750mb of storage for XBLA tiles
    and online storage in which sony will allow 4x the storage for ps3 and release 15 new franchises for the ps3 and have resistance 3
    up and running with 100players runnig amuck which would be a nightmere for insomiac that and 17 new studios open in wales
    meaning i'd be able to make games of my own which will sell systems around the world.

    Sony seem desperate to cut out the guts of the PS3. Backwards compatibility, the card readers (did they cut the WIFI out too?)

    Still, the console running cooler is a good thing. Although mine barely gets warm (in a well ventilated area) and the fans are inaudible unless the room is otherwise silent. :)

    I prefer my PS3 for streaming media to the 360 (why is the 360 so effing loud?) my 360 probably sees more gaming but im yet to get properly started on MGS4! .. And of course the bluray > hd dvd stuff :)

    In my experience, it's the DVD Drive which is the loudest part on the 360.. Not entirely sure why. But that's the component which gives my ears the most hassle.

    LOL. I hope that was meant in jest, cos it just really cheered me up. I love the idea of Sony selling a few more consoles so thinking "what shall we do with all the money? Lets open up more games studios! In WALES!!!!"

    if the new core can knock $100 off the price, i probably get it. i only play on my PC so far, but MSG4 is very tempting :)

    plus i got an HDTV playing only regular cable :(

    Shrinking chips is always good news. Let's just hope this leads to price cuts before Xmas so that PS3 has the momentum it needs to be a contender this generation. When will they unveil the next replacement for the 40/80GB SKU's? E3?

    No, check out a real review of mgs4. Zero Punctuation's just bitched about the cut scenes for 5 minutes and barely covered the actual game at all. Gametrailers made a pretty good video review of it.

    Same here on all stated.

    I still don’t get the price issue? The PS3 will always be more expensive than the Wii and Xbox 360 because there is more machine for your money. But what gets me is that people still moan about the price today which is just £10 - £50 at most (depending one where you shop) than the 360 Elite. The PS3 has been cheaper this year than what I paid for my 360 Premium only one year before, and nobody moaned about the 360 being too expensive. Thats £200 slashed from its original rrp of £500 in less than a year of its release. People in this country and USA just want stuff for nothing. It doesnt happen unless your a benefit freak.

    I can only assume its competitor fan boys and those that don’t ever have any intention on buying a PS3 that moan about the price.
