7 controllers.. yeah that is an odd number isn't it? haha
I'm not exactly sure why 7. Not 100% sure if this relates or not, but the Cell architecture of the PS3 is designed for 8 cooperatively-working processors. To improve production yield, 1 has been disabled. It seems likely this has affected the 8th controller.
That would be my guesstimate.

Will there be anyone (besides sony) making blue ray movies?
Will the newer technology mean the severe lack of the numbers of games, and how expensive will those games be?
Will they be able to sell this thing for less than $600-$800?
I really like the possibility of this thing. I just wonder if it's too good to be true. GOD I hope not.

Sony is a big boy. They make video DV and Mini-DV format tapes, and everybody follows thier lead.
If they make it, you will buy it!

Yes.. the bluray technology can focus a laser more precisely than a red laser.. so they can work on dual layer DVDs, etc.
The bluray will come through.. the HDVD stuff is going to have it's changes.. Sony has a huge push on the market.. Chances are you'll start seeing things coming out supporting one or both.. until the powers that be put their foot down and say this is how it's going to be.
When technology like this emerges, corporations typically form partnerships to help facilitate a broad acceptance of the product. The BRDA (Blu-Ray Disc Association) has over 100 members such as: Toshiba(Sony's Tech partner), Disney, Hitachi, TDK, FOX Pictures, Apple, Dell, Panasonic, etc.
I think it's safe to say that blu-ray will be widely accepted.
