“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 still don't think the intercooler is necessary because if it does overheat, then I would demand that MS gives me a new one for free, since it is their fault, not mine. They are supposed to make sure the thing works properly. Mine seems fine anyway, no need for intercooler.

You can still compare the PS3 and the 360 even though the 360 doesn't have HD-DVD. Why are you buying a console? Idk about you, but I'm buying it to play games. When I see that the PS3 is $200 more for a similar gaming experience, then obviously, the PS3 is much more expensive. I don't care if it had a feature that gave me head while playing games. The reason I buy consoles is to game.

I take the minimalist approach. Give me what I need to complete my task. Don't give me extra crap and try to say it's a good deal, it isn't since I'm paying more for extra things that I don't want.

BTW, I haven't noticed anything with the wireless controllers either. I like them.

I haven't noticed anything with the wireless controller, but I don't play fighting games that require combos to be executed quickly. So, Wireless or not is a subjective topic.

However, I learned something new today, just as I suspected, wired is better.

Its a Comparison people. He was trying to get the two systems as comparable as possible. He didnt say you NEED an HD-DVD to play games, he said to make them with COMPARABLE features you would have to include one on the 360.

Yes it is, and a poor one at that, which is why everyone is taking issue with it. It's not a big deal and he's entitled to his opinion, but so are we. If the PS3 came with a microwave, would you add the price of a microwave to the 360 for a comparison? The root of this whole thing is which console is cheaper to play games on - the winner is clearly Xbox360. What games do you want to play games on? That's subjective.
