I'm thinking of making a computer case in the shape of 'Hatte's head. When I can afford a ranch.

I sent the specs to my insider at Sony. He said they melted 2 Cell processors trying to render Hatte's head in 3-D. Apparently, it can't handle objects that defy the laws of the known universe.

According to the PDF, going from 500 to 600 bucks gets you MemoryStick/SD/CompactFlash, 802.11, and HDMI out not to mention 3xthe HD size. Kinda seems like a no brainer if you're inclined to spend 500 on a console that is.

I had been thinking about how much more this is than I paid for my PS2 on launch day, but then remembered that I also paid another $200 for the HDD and Network Adapter. So really, it's the "same" price-point, with much more advanced technology. It just feels like more because it's in one chunk rather than spread out over a couple years.

The new controller isn't wired as Resheph mentioned. Or rather, it is wired, but only when you need it to be recharging.

from http://www.us.playstation.com/News/PressReleases/340:
Quote:
All input information will be immediately transferred to the PS3 system through the Bluetooth® wireless technology. By using a USB cable, the PS3 controller can be swapped seamlessly from wireless to wired, and can be charged automatically. The cable can be attached and detached at anytime.


Edit: Fixed link. Lotan

From the same article:

Quote:
Pursuant to the introduction of this new six-axis sensing system, the vibration feature that is currently available on DUALSHOCK® and DUALSHOCK®2 controllers for PlayStation and PlayStation®2, will be removed from the new PS3 controller as vibration itself interferes with information detected by the sensor.


Is that also from court order? Did they ever get out from under the mess of the rumble? Last I heard they were ordered to pay an outrageous sum of money for that fiasco.

My guess is that they're removing rumble because of the lawsuit, but rather than highlight that, make it sound more benign.

Thanks for the link fix - didn't actually test it after I posted.
