“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 

Finally, SCEA also announced today the roster of peripherals that will accompany the arrival of PS3. The peripherals that will be available on launch day include the SIXAXIS Controller, available for $49.99, a Memory Card Adaptor for transferring game save information from PlayStation and PlayStation2 Memory Cards onto the HDD of PS3 for $14.99, and coming soon, a BD Remote Control for $24.99 (see peripheral photos here).

No HDMI cable will be included (nor component either, but seriously that costs like 10-15 bucks on amazon, the ps2 component cables are 100% compatable with the ps3), the 360 doesn't come with an adapter, and the ps3 controller comes standard with built-in li-ion and recharged via usb. And I did say that it was an unfair comparison because of the HD-DVD capabilities...please read. I know the list looks more appealing but there are important things talked about in the long paragraphs.

yes i read those paragraphs of yours. the point i am saying about the adapter is that the xbox has one available for purchase. What i mean is if you are going to add it for the ps3 you should add it for the xbox as well. As far i know there is no other way to get your saves from the xbox to the xbox 360 except with this kit. Also these is the xsata but thats another story.

The PS3 controller, made by or contracted out by Sony, uses an internal Li-Ion battery? So, I'm going to assume here, so stay with me, that these batteries will probably be made or of the Sony brand. That sounds great, so when I get to play Call of Duty 3, not only do I get to feel rumble from the pad from explosions, I just may get the added realism bonus of the controller blowing up or catching fire in my hand. Awesome! They are taking it to a whole new intensity level with this one.

For the love you really think after 8 million god damn recalls they'll make explosive batteries on a controller? Jesus tapdancing Christ....
