They can't be serious? two or three times, compared to 15 (360) and 35 times (PS3)...

Console looks good but I can't really see it.

/me looks at ps3 console (particularly the controller) excuse me but...

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
/me falls to floor

HAHAHAHAH *.cough*.cough* EHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEEHEHEHEHE

/me rolls accross living room

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

/me looks at nintendo revolution thinking "was that released in the 80's or somthing?"

Putting all 3 beside each other is a sin, Xbox and PS3 may rightfully stand by each other, someone needs to toss that garbage out the window (sorry nintendo fans, i know how it feels, i once was a fan of dreamcast)

Undoubtfully though, NO CONTROLLER BEATS THE DREAMCAST CONTROLLER!
i loved dreamcast, i always hated sega, but i REALLY LOVED my dreamcast...
/me goes into deep thinking about his loss of his dreamcast

The numbers are meaningless; According to Sony to PS2 is more powerfull then the Gamecube.

Wait for pictures and demos.

What bloody difference does it make what they look like?

That aside think the ps3 looks nice.

As for the nintendo, i'll wait for a better pic but imo the gc looked cooler.

Nintendo has a good point about the hardware. I dont believe the nonsence thats coming out from sony saying their chip is somthing like 7 times more powerfull than a standard desktop processor, i dont think its even half as powerfull, as lets say, a xeon 3.2ghz, or an amd athlon 64 3.2ghz, theres no comparison actually (just imagine what ure pc will run like with a consoles processor)

And i agree the 35 times is bullshit, that would mean that everything is 35 times better, e.g. loading is 35 times faster, rendering is 35 faster (with the same rendering engine on both consoles) etc...

Finnaly i just read an article where they were interviewing a guy who works with a research company in the field of consoles and gaming in general. Currently PS has like 35% of the market, Xbox 19% and gamecube 14%. He says that will change so that xbox 360 has 38% and ps3 32% and revolution 22% (by 2010), lets wait and see, i think im going to invest in either a ps2 or xbox, it really depends on the games that come out. PS needs to filter out all the shit companies that make games for it just to make a quick buck.

Pfeh, PS will stay marktleader, but the Xbox lost more than it gained and was incredibly unpopular in Japan (and yes, that matters).
Besides that, I've never read/heard/seen a single 'research guy' who had it right. The PC had been considered dead for already 10 years by these people and still it's going strong.

Xbox really will only succeed if it has unique games, something they failed with at the previous incarnation.

Revolution looks much better than PS3, however I believe Xbox 2 looks quite nice also. I'm not really sure that black was the best choice of colour - brushed aluminium would have been killer - I'd have bought 2 - however the style reminds me of PSP and everyone seems to cream themselves over that - so we'll wait and see

"Why don't you invite me over for cake anymore?"...

Goddamnit, why does the Nintendo conference have to be so long away. Oh shit, if Sony could spend like 10 minutes talking about how innovative PS1 and 2 were... oh god the nintendo thing is gonna be hell!

Yeah they're good.

http://media.cube.ign.com/articles/6...g_2789308.html

And check out the new N5 in better pictures. Looks by far better than both PS3 and Xbox360 IMO in these pictures. AND IT'S FUCKING SMALL!

Hey, the N5 actually looks cool. Personally I like the look of all the new consoles, but the PS3 does kinda look like a spaceprinter... and it's controller reminds me of a sex toy. Why? I don't even know. All the smooth curves and silver, possibly. Er... where was I?

What I really wanted to see was the N5's controller, right now it doesn't look all that Revolotionary. But it is incredibly small looking, the first time I'd worry about leaving a home console in my pocket and letting it go through the laundry.

The screens from the 360 are impressive, liek whoa. They've got real skin. I wanna see what the other two can do, especially if Sony's claims about power are true. We can hope.

EDIT: Yeah... the new logo is kinda gay.

Nintendo never learn. Idiots.

PS3 look amazing, and the controller is gonna be great. Sure, they should have added triggers, but hey, can't have it all. It may not look nice, but it will be comfortable I reckon.

It'll be a tough choice between PS3 and 360....

I'll get the new Nintendo for all the lovely Nintendo exclusives, and a PS3 for the rest.

No place for the Xbox360. Does anyone know how it compares technically with the new Xbox? I can never get a definate answer to this.

btw Axx, I think the PS3 processor is definately faster than the fastest ones in PCs right now, but that will of course change in a year or two. Console processors are normally superior to their equivalents in the PC world at launch, until a few months pass and they are overtaken.

MGS4 and various others are too hard to resist. It does look very bizzare, but then again I like bizzare.

Ya gots tah think strategically, ya man! Let ya brother/sister buy it, or wait till it's cheap . Now granted, MGS is reason enough (like zelda is for Nintendo) to own a PS3, but if I could wait till my brother bought the PS2 simply for GTA:SA, then you can wait too...
But of course, I did buy Substance for PC before I got the PS2 version. Damn did the PC version suck ass.

The PS3 in white looks lovely. And the controller may look a bit crap, but the GC one looks worse imo, with random gay colours. Its not about looks, in any case. Its about comfort. This one is bluetooth, anyway. Looks lovely imo.
