“Our line-up of PS3 games that will be available through the holidays is unprecedented in terms of volume, variety and innovation, surpassing any previous competitive launch catalog and even our own original offerings for other PlayStation platforms,” said Kaz Hirai, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America.  “We are pioneering a new era of true next-generation gaming through such titles as Resistance: Fall of Man, a visually arresting game that takes advantage of the large storage capacity and exceptional visual clarity offered by Blu-ray Disc; and NBA 07, running at full 1080p for the highest resolution image possible, creating hyper-realistic characters and gameplay never seen before.”

As if simply being able find a PlayStation 3 at launch wasn't incentive enough, Sony announced that packed-in with the first half million PS3 systems shipped in North America will be Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, starring Will Farrell. This puts a copy of the movie into PlayStation 3-owners hands almost a month before the Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby stand-alone street date of December 12, 2006

I would rather have someone list all the games that you can play for PS3 or console in general that you cannot for PC, then I'll make the decision if consoles are worth my money when I have an excellent, upgradable PC.

And all I'll do is plop a Blu-Ray burner in and I'm set for a long while :)

Given that a blu-ray burner costs 750 bucks...id rather drop another 50 and get the list

Well going from the perspective of the previous poster, who suggest they are a pc-gamer (like myself) with a very good PC....why in all sanity would you even BOTHER with the current $750 blu-ray burner RIGHT NOW? Unless you enjoy racking investing $750 bucks for what amounts to ZERO RETURN for the purpose of a pc-gaming rig.

Even if someone wants to argue some silly thing like "um because then I can backup 50gigs on a single disc"....I'd counter with "um....that's not worth $750!!!".

You build a good gaming pc...sure it costs about 2k for a decent mid-level rig...but there just isn't a need for blu-ray AT ALL...except if its job related or you are one of those silly types that would rather go into major credit card debt than to OMG *NOT* be the first on the block to have sometime new.

yea why pay $750 for a BR burner when you can spend $100 to backup 300ish gigs with another hdd
