PS3 Released Last Friday

Sony delivered the first 200k game consoles last Friday. People slept over night to get a place in line (ala new Star Wars release) to POSSIBLY get their hands on a new PlayStation 3. Here is a video showing a long waiting line for the PS3. Incredible.

So is it worth it? There must be some sort of stature to having the newest gaming system before anyone else. Or is the system so good that you must have it immediately? The PS3 is pricey, however there is an added bonus that makes it worth the $549-$649 price tag. The bonus is the inclusion of a Blu-ray Disc player, that drives video resolutions up to 1080p, the highest possible HD format at this point in time. Blu-ray Disc players normally go for $999 so this is certainly a bargain.brbr$549 vs. $649? The difference in price is reflected in the inclusion of a WiFi card, and a 60bg hard drive vs. a 20gb hard drive. Each unit comes with 512megs of RAM and a 3.2gighz processor (type of processor I’m not sure). I’d go with the higher end model in a New York minute. You’ve got to have WiFi and you’ve got to have more than 20gbs.brbrThe real question will be whether or not these units stand up to their Sony name. There have been lots of promises about release dates. Let’s hope this one is a solid unit with no hang ups. I would also be interested in hearing about game loading time. HD discs seem to take much longer to load up, with occasional freezes. It will also be interesting to see if there is an increase in sales of Blu-ray Discs for use in these boxes.
