Am sure to buy two PS3. But only if they come with the modded chip as buying the orignal cds is out of question because of the high rates and only if their price comes down.. its good that they have the option of 20GB and 60GB as the 8mb space on the memory card of the PS2 was insuffient.Lets see the reviews of the games aborad once its launched.

Cheers Ed...

The initial price of the PS3 might go as high as 700 $. THe same thing happened with XBOX 360 also when it was launched.

There are 3 major factors that makes me wanna buy the Ps3 over the Ps2.

1. Faster Processing speed
2. Anti Aliasing - which means no more jagged edges.
3. Blu Ray - DVD games that can hold loads of info leading to better sharper graphics and far more superior detailing.

PS3 has been finally launched in Japan today. It's prices start from about $425 for 20gb model.

Sony could only ship 100,000 units. Because of the blue ray diode developed some problems which also caused the delay.

The thingy was completely sold out by afternoon according to some sources.

Hey..as per the AV Expo recently at Taj Lands End,Bandra..the people at the Sony PS2 stall there told me Sony India will launch the PS3 here in Feb 2007..
Also - I'll surely get my hand on one of these when I'll go to States in March..hopefully the prices will reduce by then..
Will also get to know whether Nintendo Wii is better than PS3 by that time..
