1st post so be gentle pls! preorder before the releae date for this price,

PlayStation 3 is the industry's most advanced next-generation home console hardware, realised through the combination of Cell and RSX processors.

With the Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed 80GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) as standard in PS3, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to download a variety of contents as well as access on-line games and services over the Playstation Network.

Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering PS3 owners the joy of the most advanced computer home entertainment content. For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2.

With the overwhelming computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

Comes with the new DualShock 3 Controller! The PlayStation 3 80GB model does NOT feature:

Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
Memory Stick Card Readers
SACD Playback
Ethernet Cable
4 USB Ports, (The PS3 80GB model features 2)

Although Play don't give Quidco cashback on console sales, and Game also do their reward points system (you get 3,000 points - worth £7.50 off your next purchase - with a PS3).
So, from Game, the PS3 is really a little under £285 (so about £5 cheaper than Play or Amazon - neither of which offer Quidco cashback).

Having said all of that, I'll probably wait for some bundles around the £300-320 mark) - mainly because £300 on just a console is too much (even if it does have wobbly gamepads).

dont forget £3 voucher added and also comes with free delivery

Worth some heat for the sony fanboys ;-)

It would be nice if a package came up with a 2nd controller.... Those dual shock controllers are very expensive for what they are, plus they've always seemed very small. I know the xbox controllers always got some stick for being *too* big (well the originals anyway) they do seem better than the ps3 ones...

Erm... yeah...

What a stupid thing to put when selling a product, not that any of them are missed anyway, I have a 60gb launch machine and can't remember the last time I played a ps2 game, except to check that the facility works when i first bought it!

True, but I do like having 4 USB ports, i think 2 is a bit tight of Sony considering the Buzz games, PS Eye etc. Still at least theres no need to buy a ridiculous "play and charge" kit for PS3, and a USB cable can just be used for that (as it should be on the 360).

What is the really different from 40GB version?

I think so but wonder that it might have something extra...
Ah! Dual shock controller. right right um.um...

:-D

Yeh I think the only other difference is the addition of the dual shock controller.

At a cost of looking out dated and generic though...The 360 controllers have character.
