    Just thought I would remind all the Sony Fanboys that the 360 is in full swing now and they are available eveywhere!

    November is a long way off so do yourselves a favour and go buy a 'next gen' console now.

    But the surprising news is that the PS3 will be here in Europe in November, according to Sony. I certainly didn't expect it this year, however I'm sure they'll end up delaying it in the run up. Therefore all the Sony fanboys will probably just wait now, only 8 months to go (maybe!)

    And for all that time the microsoft fanboys will do this, and the circle of life is complete.

    Think i'll hang on for the Revolution tbh.

    Up until yesterday, SONY were saying we'd see PS3 in spring 2006. Now it won't even show up in Japan until November. Personally, I wouldn't expect to see this thing until next year.

    I think almost everyone was expecting this news to surface. It's a shame really as it will probably be a fantastic machine just like the 360.

    Still, at least my wallet has breathed a sigh of relief (until xmas/2007 anyway ;-)

    You can expect the 360 to carry on being available in plentiful supplies once the PS3 arrives :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Only joking of course. But if you will post [email protected] like this in the PS3 forum, you can't expect anything else!

    I'm a bit of a cynic and I still think we won't see the PS3 in Europe in 2006. As MS found out trying to do a global launch is a logistical nightmare. If the final spec hasn't even been made for Blu-ray that means they won't even be able to stockpile the units for a global launch. I'm sure Aus and European launches will slip...

    But the fact that Sony have been open about the delay, despite their recent insinstance that the console would be out in Spring, says to me that they are confident a global launch is possible, in fact they have given themselves more time than they orignally had to build up stock.

    Hopefully soon we'll be able to pre-order, I still want to know what the console can do beyond games and movies, but right now it's looking like a PS3 will be heading my way.

    It'll be interesting to see if MS counter any of this.

    But the point of the delay is that they are waiting for the final spec for Blu-Ray to be realised. The announcement also points to the latest HDMI spec. That means if the PS3 is to have HDMI v1.3 they'll be waiting until the summer (probably July/August) just for that part. Therefore, they can't stockpile the consoles and can't build up a lead time to get them out to territories.

    There's no point getting defensive jedi-jae, after all I just don't have the blind faith that you do over trusting Sony's words especially given their history. You may have forgotten, but Sony did initially say they were launching the PS3 in Spring. Official delay number 1. I'm certain it won't be the only one.

    Its pretty obvious now that sony have been lieing or at least deliberatly misleading people over the last few months. Because of that its hard to belive everything they say now.

    I'm not going to belive they are lieing but neither will I belive everything they are saying is true.

    Todays news is actually pretty positive for the ps3, particually in Europe if its true. But I'm certainly cynical. 6 mill units sold in just over a month at launch, worldwide release (when they have said just a few weeks ago they wern't doing this)

    March 360 releases

    Fight Night 3
    Burnout Revenge

    NHL 2K6
    The Outfit
    Far Cry instincts Predator
    NBA 2K6
    Ghost recon Advanced Warfighter
    Blazing Angels
    Oblivion
    College Hoops (US only I think)

    Yes there has been a drought in Jan and Feb, though that is very normal for that time of year and its also normal in the first few months after a new console launch. But March on the 360 is an amazing month for gaming. I can't think of a month that good for any system for a long time.

    for ages now you've been saying that you want to see all the next gen consoles before decideing which to go for.

    now you're on about *pre-ordering* a PS3 which confirms to alot of us that you are a sony fanboy after all.....

    .....awaitng back lash.....:D

    Have you read any gaming websites today?

    Today I've posted that I still want to see what else PS3 will do, and beyond that; frankly who the hell are you to judge me on anything?

    Or is this just another childish way to belittle and dismiss anything someone says (that you don't like) by calling them a fanboy? Oh dear, shouldn't you be at school by now?

    I make my own choices based on the information available, today a lot more information about PS3 became available and it's looking good, if you disagree that's your problem, not mine.

    I guess you like to be the with "in crowd" and bleat away like a sheep, I like to make up my own mind on these things.

    It already has the best looking racing game of all time
    It already has the best looking platform game of all time
    It already has the best looking shooter of all time
    It already has the best looking sports game of all time.
    It is about to have the best looking RPG of all time

    All of them were great games as well as their visuals too. After this month there many next gen games on the 360. It's a great machine with an already impressive games library after 4 months or so.

    I'm sure the PS3 will be equally good and impressive. If not even more so. An extra year on development should hopefully mean something.

    The orginal post deserved a bit of a flaming for sure. But don't try and counter him with nonsence.

    I'm not judging Jae, I'll get a PS3 to go with my 360. I am curious though, as you seem to be definately leaning more to the PS3. What has been announced that makes you want to wait for the PS3 in November rather than getting a 360 now?

    yes I was, I wasn't really sure about calling it a platform game really, but it seemed the best genre choice.

    To be honest, I'm relieved that sony have finally released something official, and it does look good - whether that tranlsates to reality is yet to be seen. I don't really see how they can offer an online system to match Live and keep it free, unless they plan on charging for everything you download?

    To be fair, the thread was started by THE fanboy, so it was always going to defend. More predictable than EA tbh.

    Well, they've said it will be free for the 'basic' service. What that means and what functionality will be available remains to be seen.

    maybe, but the inference is that playing games online won't require a subscription, but maybe Sony will make loads of music vids and movie trailers available for a small fee?

    We'll see, but I'm suspicious of a "free" service that can match Live.

    Nothing wrong with having an opinion, however you are going to be called out on it if you can't back it up. The 360 has many 'next gen' games already and plenty more coming.

    I fully agree the first post was a fanboy one and it deserved to be flamed, however you can chose to respond intelligantly or respond with things that simply arn't true. Some people chose the former, my posts we aimed at those that chose the later.

    I'm perfectly chilled thanks. I don't get worked up over debates on a message board.

    Especially as the servers will cost them quite a bit!
