    What? Believe them? To Sony, Cell is the 2nd coming, bigger than Godzilla and you need at least to sacrifice to lesbian virgins to run the BIOS.

  3. A winner is PS3.

  4. whatever @ the graph

    awesome @ the hardware features.

    Didn't see the non-Memory Stick shit coming, among other things

  5. I dont care about Blu-Ray, and it looks like it wont be that much more powerful than 360, if at all.

    No wireless? Lame.

    Looks like this next generation is gonna be fought where it matters, the games and features that improve the games.

    I don't think the hardware or any games were shown.

  7. I like how it'll come it with a detachable HDD slot. And six USB 2.0 ports. The only thing I could see those could be useful for is if the controls use USB to plug into the system.

    They should fuck their stupid proprietary format and just put in a hard drive. And make it wi-fi enabled. Otherwise, it's nifty sounding.

    Yea, a Sony produced graph based on a stat that really doesnt mean all that much.

    Wooo. Seriously, you guys spent the last five years complaining about how Sony overhyped the shitty PS2 yet youre falling for the first stupid graph they produced on PS3? Before they even show a game, or a demo, or anything? You guys are suckers.

  10. Good stuff, it's fully backwards compatible, and has all of the stuff that was already announced for the 360 in terms of CDs and DVDs being read and such. I'm sure they'll show off the Dual Shock 3 as well.
