PS Home was only announced because sony were scared xbox would announce it first, thats why sony still haven't given a release date for home because there nowere near finished meanwhile xbox have said it will be included in there fall update and will be a lot more features than home, no doubt.

Actually sony were reported to be losing a lot of money after dropping the price as it costs so much to put blu-ray into the consoles, and the beta got delayed i heard. And i mean features as in more stuff to do not just walk around your virtual neighborhood and put in your new virtual leather sofa. The xbox has stuff like the new gameshows etc.

Yes but not as much as xbobx and tht was for a short period of time - no the beta didnt get delayed again. THYE OBVIOUSLY DONT KNOW WHAT HOME IS DO YOU - trust me i have been on it and it has a lot more to offer than just sitting down in your apartment. (friend is lucky enough to be in the closed beta). Yes the playstation also has its own gameshows and stuff

all sounds rubbish except 8 person chat

Sony is still haemorrhaging money because of their ps3. You do know for every ps3 they sell, they loose money, unlike the 360 and wii.

wat allot of bull

ps i have a 360

ignore the crappie vista gfx.

this update will be welcome for 2 great features.

1. Install your games to HDD. Sure the DVD still needs to be in the drive but no more noisy optical drive.

2. 16:10 support for those who play on a monitor.

I dont like the new dashboard, im not keen on the whole Mii thing.
Also would we still use gamerpics?.

Ps. i think PS3 fans are sore because of the Final Fantasy announcement and the Portal Still Alive exclusive to 360.

Ps3 still loses money - sony make more money on the ps2 than they do on the ps3 sales - hence them removing the ps2 capabilities from the ps3 and re-releasing a new one

dont cry sony fanboy im sure you will have a decent exclusive this year.................:whistling: or was that just final fantasy 13....oh dear

Quote from the guardian - may 2008
blogs.guardian.co.uk/tec…tml

A thought: On Sony's own figures, the games division made a loss of $130 … A thought: On Sony's own figures, the games division made a loss of $130 for each PlayStation 3 shipped. Let's assume that it's making pots of money on the PSP and the PlayStation 2: the PS2 is now hugely profitable and still sells more games than anything else. These two platforms could easily have made a profit of $1.2bn in the year. In that case, the total PS3 loss would have been $2.4bn shared between 9.24m PS3 consoles, or $260 per PS3 -- including any attached Sony games. Hm, is that a reasonable guess or not?



Get your facts right before you go around making out your correct when your plainly not

no u get your facts right - when i got my 360 on release day it was a lot more expensive than it is now - they had to drop the price as it wasnt making any money - the same for all consoles including the ps2. Tht article is months old

They drop prices to stay in competition with the wii. Makes it a more attractive console, with more top games. And better controllors, i find ps3 controllors too light , almost like a frisbee that i want to throw at someone.

To be honest

This new interface looks like a demo disc menu.

Also why couldn't they just keep the old interface and just add the things that we have been crying for since launch (well i have) the 8 way chat!

i like it - it looks like media center crossed with a mac

dont like the mii characters tho

like the chat thing

I put a tasty treat for my cat on each of my concoles ( Wii / ps3 / 360 ) , of cause in the name of science the tasty treat was the same on all 3 consoles...

the cat was placed in the middle and left to choice which treat from which console would be eatern and in which order....

after a few moments the order in which the taste treat was eatern was.

1.... 360
2..... ps3
3......wii

now in conlusion what dos this test tell us about which console better???

after much thinking i came to the answer.......

"about the same result of 3 years of fan boy arguments going round and round and round "

Prof Saveuk has spoken.... :P
