I'm going to hold out till 2007 so hopefully they've tweaked all the problems, should there be any, as I don't want the same kind of problems I've had with my 360.

Phenominally expensive, although I guess this is mainly down to it having Blu ray as standard.

I'll wait for it to decrease in price before I consider getting one. Can't justify 400 odd quid on a games machine.

You never really know until they have sold a few million to find common problems, unless they have a testing team the size of the US army

true, no dought there will be a few glitches on a few machines, but overall i've got a good feeling it'll be the best console on the market! especially at 400 odd quid

So it'll be the best console on the market, just because it costs the most money?

I'll stick with a 360 then get a Wii when that comes out. Two consoles for the price of one Playstation 3.

Sony's arrogance is going to cost them this time.

the graphics are the same on the ps3 as the 360, and you pay 200 more just because the disc turns around a little faster- stuff that, im getting the 360 when it goes down in price to still compete with the ps3

yes, generally you get what you pay for, but if the PS3 turns out to be inferior to the 360 at a higher cost sony will have egg on their faces, i really can't see that happening but we will see

I, TBH, don't really want to get a PS3 but the idea of a GTA: 4 is very appealing...

Still, I'll see what people make of it when it comes out before deciding anything...

I just don't see what the PS3 has that's new (apart from the Blu-Ray, which is totally unproven and may end up being the new Betamax).

The X-Box 360 has launched the downloads of games and add-ons as well as the "home hub" concept which works well.

The Wii is focussing on increasing the games market, innovating new ways for both new and existing gamers to play and removing barriers for non-stereotypical gamers.

The problem is that Sony still seems to believe that gamers will buy a console because it has "Playstation" written on the side

Don't get me wrong; Sony has done something newer in the PSP, but it's not a huge leap, and the only non-stereotypical game is Loco Roco, but one game is not enough to make a difference.

The main thrust of their software appears to me to be sequels to previously successful franchises, many of which will be available on other consoles. Nothing I have heard so far has convinced me that any of the PS3 versions will be different enough for me to spend the best part of 500 buying the system and the game.

Sony appear to have lost their innovation - where is the company who developed the Eye Toy? Nintendo were slated with the release of the GameCube because there was nothing spectacular, and I have to agree. I think that the PS3 is going to suffer from a similar averageness.

I think what frustrates me most are comments like JAS78's that "you get what you pay for" with the implication that that's always a good thing. I have no problem with people being loyal to a brand, and allowing them benefit of the doubt, but at some point I think you have to be realistic and ask yourself "how will this change my gaming life?". With the PS3, I think that the answer is "not much".

So, in conclusion, no, I won't be buying a PS3!

It has a new graphics card that makes games just a tad (sarcastic) more realistic

But then again that's what people are after, a more "real" way to play games on a console, and that's why it's more expensive.

It's not much true, but it's something.

I know people want to see original innovations but I don't really see what's wrong with how games are at the moment. I have absolutely no problem with making games more realistic and improving slightly on what we have. Yeah, a few new ideas are nice but you'll get that with a few games.

Personally I think what Nintendo are doing with the Wii is that big gamble. Sony have got a winning formula and there's no need to change it just yet. The technology just isn't around at the moment.
