  • Sony Unveils New PlayStation 3

    Sony Corp (SNE.N). unveiled three flavors of its new PlayStation 3 video game machine Monday in what is likely a new round of console wars with rivals Microsoft Corp. and Nintendo Co.

    The new machine, set for release in the spring of 2006, is about the same size as the current generation. PlayStation 2 but has a more rounded look. Besides black, the PS3 will be available in silver and white.

    Sony officials said the PS3's new processor technology called Cell will offer high performance for movie-like realism in games, high-definition movies and other features.

    'The PS3 will use the Blu-ray disc format, capable of holding 50 gigabytes of information, which is about six times the capacity of existing DVDs, as well as slots for memory cards, a detachable hard drive and Bluetooth wireless for up to seven wireless controllers.'

    Sounds good to me.

                    No matter what, the new Sony PS3 will kick the Xbox360's ass, same with the PS2 and the current Xbox.

                    In my opinion, there are no good Xbox only games.
