PS3 wont launch this year and its estimated cost might be $900

http://rsch1.ml.com/9093/24013/ds/276873_0.PDF

thats the official report but here is the article i got it from...

Quote:
Cnet is reporting that a research report issued by Merrill Lynch suggests that the Sony PlayStation 3's American release may be postponed until 2007. From the article: 'The analyst firm proposed the idea that high costs and Sony's decision to use an 'ambitious new processor architecture--the Cell' is making it look like the company might not be able to meet its goal of getting the PS3 out in the U.S. this year.' Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Re: PS3 wont launch this year and its estimated cost might be $900

haha i wouldnt. sony sucks balls and there inability to actually produce a system is showing it.

theyre trying to make it too good. theyre making a system that will be so good, designers wont know what to do with themselves and get lost in making a super graphical game that has no playability over a fun game that looks really good. IMO PS3 has already lost, and 360 is slipping fast due to their inability to keep supply chains going. at first, microsofts decision to only produce limited numbers for launch sounded like a great marketing scheme, make the consumer want the product, but after almost 5 months from launch and retailers are stocked to the brim with 360 accessories and no 360 itself, it makes even hardcore box fans pissed that they cant buy it.

its reasons like these i will be building my own supercomputer now than hold my breath another year for the 360 to come available. besides, i hear quite a few people have been sucessful in making 360 games playable on pc's......

At least you know the Sony product will be badass. Microsoft rushed the 360, and thats why it had a lot of failures. Within 2 days of its release, they were getting reports of it crashing.

a nintendo console has NEVER cost more than $300 at launch, so that's not exactly news

Re: PS3 wont launch this year and its estimated cost might be $900

Ill take my cpu and have more fun. Its a nice system... but not for me. Sony is losing money on the system anyway, its the games where they make their money. Computers are to cheap to build now to not make them a viable way to game.

Re: PS3 wont launch this year and its estimated cost might be $900

There was a quote by one of Sony's execs about a month ago or so that said something like "we are going to keep the price around 50,000yen (about $400US right now)" I believe that guy. I expect release around beginning of Turkey day (they won't push it back another year and christmas is the biggest time of year to release a game console) and the same pricing as the 360.

To update this thread:

Quote:
"Analysts expect the PS3 to be launched for about $500 almost simultaneously in the U.S. and Japan with an initial line up of at least five to 10 games."

sorry

zelda is boring as hell
metroid was a decent side shooter
resident evil, eh. not into those pseudo FPS's
fire emblem, wtf is that
super smash brothers? ghey.

none of those games make up the market nowadays. you know what makes up the market? Gran Turismo/Forza, Grand Theft Auto, Halo, Half Life, Quake4/Doom3, Far Cry, all those WW1/WW2 games like medal of honor and Battlefield 1942 or whatever, NFSU+U2+MW, stuff like that. id like to see one gamecube title that compared in sales to titles like above. i sure in the hell dont have to worry about them topping halo, or even coming close to some of the midrange games. nintendo just sucks now, it was cool 80's/90's, but they made a bad mistake when it came to the N64 still being cartridge driven vs the new technology of CD's. had N64 been a cd type reader, i believe it wouldve lasted alot longer than it did, and nintento might not have had to rush GC just to stay in the picture.

though not like it matters. im severly angry at MS for not being able to produce any mass numbers on the 360. 6 months after launch and most retailers still have limited supply that are still reserved or bought before they even have them. total bull****. i understand a limited launch is a great marketing scheme that creates lots of buzz and makes for avid buyers when the mass units are finally in stores, but after half a year, it just shows your incopetent in your ability to plan these things. had it been me, sure, well have a limited launch, but i want stores PACKED with as many of these ****ers as there are normal Xbox's within 2 months time. hell, they couldve launched mid october, and then lined stores by mid december, and made ****loads upon ****loads. instead, were still getting 2-3 a month that are already payed for by the time they arrive.

more than likely my next gaming system will be in PC form, unless halo3 really kicks *** and isnt more than added levels with a 3 year wait. im thinking a dual threading 3.6ghz pentium clocked to 4.5 or a amd of equal capabilities, 2gigs of ram, a hdtv ready GeForce 7800 SLI so i can run 2 down the line as is needed, Soundblaster 7.1 fx sound card with all the super nifty interfaces and super surround sound, and 500gig hd for mass storage of large quantities of files(like recorded movies/shows/mp3/torrents), and a dual 34gig super fast drives for running a Raid setup for super critical gaming needs. newegg is my friend, i just need 1500 bucks.......

everyone of those games but gran turismo is on available on PC or other systems. they are all ported. I can play every single one of those on PC. thats my point. the games that make up most the market are so readily available. the games like zelda and metroid are only available on nintendo.

Classic games deserve respect. Without those games, who knows if the original creators of Quake, Doom, etc would be inspired to do something just as great?

all except the fire emblem or whatever. all pretty boring to me. aside from Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Episode1 Podracer, i never liked nintendo games much. i was a sega kid growing up, had genesis and sega channel, then moved on to saturn cause of that Knights game where you flew around pointlessly, then got a PS1 and then a N64 when Pod Racer came out just for that game, but goldeneye and perfect dark came as well and that concluded all the games i wanted for the 64. then on to xbox after i played halo at a buddies house. oh i played Metroid Prime or whatever is on GC(the fps one where you find out its a chick the whole time, and shes pretty hot), its fun but too many colors and special effects to cover up its lack of fun factor, aside from that its just another decent fps, the kind you rent out of boredom.

true, without sucky games, the creators of Wolfenstien3D (ID Software) might have never said "man, this sucks, why are we still shooting from the side, why not put you in the first person?"
