    Ahh the Playstation 2.5!

    It is the PS2 but quieter, minus the ports we don't want but with added entertainment features.

    Sony also have the PSP coming out - handheld Playstation much like the GBA.

    It should be interesting to see what the sales figures are like...

    Xbox Lite has also been revealed (I think it was at E3). It's essentially an Xbox but smaller - so it's a bit less of a doorstop :).

    I can't help think that Sony are shooting themselves in the foot a bit. Announcing the PS3 (due 2005) and PSX so close and all. The success of the PSX really depends on price I think.

    its like this:
    sony: here we have this new console
    customer: what does it do
    sony: it can play all the plastation 2 games and the ps1 games
    customer: *pause* so. the playstation 2 does that as well
    sony: ahh but this one is half a centimeter smaller AND it has a more quiet fan.*quietly* but it heats up beyond melting point.
    customer: (didnt here the melting point thing) so
    sony: well you know like it will be good....*thinkin of something to say*
    customer: how much is it.
    sony: *excited about price* ah it is only 70 pound *very quietly says* dearer than the ps2.

    Ah, poor old sony. They are losing the grip on the console industry they once had. Xbox however has done a lot better than predicted, especially after this years E3.

    It looks like sony is doomed and microsoft, yet again, have control of the market. sigh!!

    Whilst on the matter. Has anyone seen the demo for HALO 2 that was shown last month. It looks sooooo good. The only reason i got an Xbox in the first place was because of HALO and HALO 2 looks a zillian times better :) with microsoft gettin games of that caliber its no wonder they are taking other the market.

    not so, the cube is far faster of bit rate and at the time it does not have as many games as the ps2 but it will at some stage with more superb graphics than the ps2 :yes:

    Do you want to play a quality game or just look at it?

    You'll end up with game likes The Bouncer - jaw dropping graphics (at the time) but underneath the graphics it smells a bit
