You'll get it when it's done

Sony officials have confirmed that the Playstation 3 will indeed make it out before the end of the year, but that's all the company will say. There's no word on the launch date, no word on pricing and no word on if they've decided to get rid of the boomerang controller.

At the 2006 Taipei Game Show, Sony was only able to muster up three mock-up PS3 consoles -- maybe Josh Robinson was on to something...

The PS3 will lag the Xbox 360 more in market share if Sony delays launch of the PS3 to the end of 2006, the sources said, noting that Microsoft predicted global shipments of its Xbox 360 will reach 4.5-5.5 million units by the end of June.

To the best of my knowlege, MP3 doesn't not allow for lossless. It's lossy by definition.

<sigh> I wrote a rather longer replay which the site problems swallowed grrr.

short answer. I should have been more descriptive on that part sorry.
mp3 does not allow a totally lossless encoding(a). it does however contain a compression method applied post lossy compression to reduce any lingering entropy via a relatively general purpose compression algorithm (in mp3's case huffman encoding).

I was just trying to make it clear that the X format for any x likely contains multiple schemes of compression in layers. not very well it would appear.

not sure if this holds true if bit rate becomes infinity but pretty sure not the case
