Some interesting stuff about the PS3 version of The Darkness (which is really shaping up nicely); since the Blu-Ray's storage capacity is so high, the developers aren't wasting any bit of it, apparently. There will be televisions scattered throughout the game that will be playing full-length feature movies, TV shows, and cartoons on different channels.

Pretty neat little feature, even if it's only a novelty. Be sure to check out www.gametrailers.com for the developer interviews (with plenty of new game footage). Heart eating ftw D:

From the same site that brought you the price cut rumour, here's another story of when Sony predicts that they'll reduce the price.


Sony Predicts PS3 Price Will Not be Cut Until...

Yeah, the Darkness is going to own. Starbreeze knows what they're doing
I myself will get the 360 version, but its nice that they are giving the PS3 version more TV shows, Movies, etc, than the 360 version. Blu-Ray comes in handy there.

Also, I hope that news does not come to pass, Knightmare

Believe it or not, I was actually surprised to see that the price won't go down until 2009. Now, Sony said that they will probably lower the manufacturing cost by outsourcing.

That's just that; Sony is merely outsourcing, and they didn't find another method to create the same quality product, if not better, but just at the difference place there the wage is lower. Why do you think most of the stuff we own is made from China or other third-world countries (I'm not sure China is still a third-world country though).

So, to get back to the point, and to explain my surprise, I thought the price wouldn't go down until 2012 due to PS3's ability for longevity than any other consoles (as for the predicting the year 2012, don't ask please because it was more of a hunch). Not only that, as everyone knows, PS3 is basically built with brand new technology. And new technology doesn't come around cheap at first.

News Number One

News Number Two
I really do not know if either are really good news

They said 1000games are playable. Yet according to neogaf that is something like 40%. A far cry from the 98% in the other models

And if they do add in rumble to new controllers...What about the previous owners?

I would say the good news is The playstation home except Sony is really being a ***** about that. It seemed like that was going to be thier big surprize yet since they have a leak. They decide to blackball kotaku for just reporting what thier leak said.

And remember about price drops. It does not matter if Sony wants it to drop or not. If sales decline it will drop.

As opposed of being a pessimist as I am always here in and real life, I'll be an optimist on this one.


From this point on, and if Sony keeps listening to their consumers instead of their greedy side (just merely assuming without any strong or weak evidence about the greedy side), the sales will go up. After all, I think all business, legitimate or not, depend on three important words: "Supply and Demand."

The removal of the rumble feature was criticized and often seen as something of a controversial move from Sony. Some people may have been turned off because the SIXAXIS controller won't have the rumble feature. Now, Sony says that they will. How many people will turned their head and decides to save up money for PS3 once more? We'll know in the future.


Also, there is absolutely no certainty that Sony will drop the price tag on the PS3 even if the sales drop. They are already losing money over the "over-priced dust collector." If they further lower the price before they are ready to, Sony will have to face losses that not even the PS2 and their TV sales won't be able to compensate.

I'm pretty much confident (as my often-suppressed optimistic side speaks again) that Sony wants to drop the price to boost their sales. It's probably what everyone wants, save for the fanboys and Sony's rivals. However, even if the sale numbers fall, I have a feeling that Sony won't drop the price. In fact, they may just shut down completely.


One last thing: about the older models of SIXAXIS, Sony may initiate a trade-in deal. "If you trade in your old SIXAXIS controller, we'll give half (or more or for free) off the price to by our new RUMBLEAXIS controllers!" Until Sony announces what they'll do, only thing we can do is just speculate.

I heard that after a lengthy phone conversation, the dispute was settled and they're on OK terms again.

Sony cannot cut the price at this early stage in the game. It is financially impossible for them. I'm surprised there is so much confusion on this topic. Sony is already selling the PS3 at a loss. Probably as much as they can afford, to get their console out and into homes so that they can make the real money through games. That is how Sony has worked pretty much since they made their big splash into the game market.

Even if the PS3 is faltering in the market, Sony cannot afford to cut the price for a sustained period of time, whether they want to or not. Sega was in a very similar position with the Saturn. People considered it too expensive and Sega eventually asked retailers to sell the console at a loss, that didn't go over well.

Of course, Sony will drop the price as soon as they are able, unless they find themselves in a commanding lead of the market.

I wonder how much a trade-in deal for SIXAXIS controllers would cost Sony and whether they would even consider such a deal.

It pretty much is just a quick rip of Wii with Achievements. But unlike the other two...It really does not have a negative side to it.

Who says it was being negative. Maybe it was just laying out the other point of views? Or whatelse is happening.
For that upscaling...You are scarficing alot of games. And you know there is a good chance a lot of those games are filler ones. Pretty much the same stupid BS 360 has...No dont make Riddick, Panzeer Dragon, JSRF work. Make crap work

And a new standerd during a generation always screw old owners over.

And on Price...The juice is worth the squeeze for Sony far more than any other company. Remember they are selling each PS3...With a media hub to Sony products. Every game that wants to be on it...every bluray Sony title...connnected to a Sony store. The amount of profit each one can net is incridible. One PS3 can boost sales in Music, Movies, and Games area.
if the PS3 becomes uncompetitive...It will lower. What is more important...Being competitive or not selling?

Yup...I think this may be the turn of the tide. This is probably Sony's darkest hour, but if the the rumors are true and the listed demos turn out to be good- and then with Motorstorm coming out...

Lair, Mass Effect, Halo 3 Beta, "possibly" Killzone 2 Demo, Too Human, and hopefully, Heavenly Sword. Our 360 and PS3 will be getting a lot of play time in the coming months.

Good times ahead for both 360 and PS3 owners, thats for sure.

It's anything but quick. Apparently it's been in development for over a year.

True, but the Wii doesn't have anything sparking my interest thats coming out early this year. Unless Metroid Prime 3 and Mario Galaxy are coming out around spring, summer. So for now, its PS60, with some PC for me

??

I never said it was negative.

I'm actual quite pleased.

After all, plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery

But for a "next gen" system, it seems pretty gimmicky, i expect this on the Wii, and i got what i wanted, I don't need it on another system.

Perhaps im just being spoiled, after all this is one of the only positive news i've heard about the PS3.

I'm waiting for Armoured Core , i love that game, and remember playing that on he PS1, and i won't mind buying the PS2 versions, when the PS3 goes down i will buy it just to play Armour Core. Sure it might be cheaper to get a PS2 but i want to play the next HD Armour Core.
