According to this link
(http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/05/16/news_6124681.ht...), Sony has not
announced if a HDD would be standard on the PS3. Excerpt from paragraph 2:

"It will also sport a slot for a detachable 2.5-inch HDD, somewhat similar
to the Xbox 360's. Sony did not mention if the drive would be standard."


Now, wouldn't that be a HUGE smack in the face if Sony makes gamers PAY for
a HDD, while the Xbox360 includes one? Plus, the price appears to me $465
US. That's a lot of dough for a HDD-less system. Gotta love Sony.

I would even be a huger smack in the face if Sony charged $15,000 for an
egg carton that has "Playstation 3" stenciled upon it. Your whines
would be more sympathetic if they were based upon something other than
speculation.

I don't understand what you were try to say here. But it's easy for Sony to
say "the HDD will be included." Since they have not said it (and MS did
with the Xbox360), we can infer that as of today, no HDD.

Simple, really! And not speculation. Until Sony states there is a HDD
included, then it won't be. What a smack by Sony!!

The US price has not been announced yet.

Japanese prices for electronics are always more expensive than their US
counterparts, so looking at the Japanese price is not a good indicator of
what the US or European prices will be.

I would say it's included, as it's described as detachable. If it were
not included, it would be called attachable...

Anyways, I would still prefer a PS3 without a HDD, over a XBox360 with one.

everyone keeps bitching that the ps3 will cost 500 dollars and blah blah
blah. well the ps3 will ship in japan first (as all consoles except the xbox
do) and by the time it gets to the US, prices on the technology will be
cheaper. and typically when a console is released it's actually sold at a
loss to gain market share and they can make the money back on the games.

Not to mention that electronics cost between 50-100% more in Japan than in
the US - even when it's for the exact same item.

Exactly... but then again, Butt Pirate is a troll as well, so six one way,
half dozen the other.

Kind of think you'll change your tune when they come out, seeing as the X
will be quite a bit more impressive visually.

But the US one will have a few "value added items" and cost more than the
Japanese one, and you'll buy it, just like the PSP.

Like you have manners?
You jumped my back not me jumping yours.
I am not going to explain myself. These groups have been taken over by
trolls and console bashers, which is what Sam is, since the E3 show.

You are right, I am not. But even a lame like yourself can see that it
wasn't a typo and that the moron thinks that is the way that you spell
"quit".

What "IS" going to happen will be that Sony will price their unit at the exact
same price or lower than the 360.

Damn you sure are getting repetitive in your old age Mr. Sanford. I am
pretty sure my first line was, "You are right, I am not". You don't even

Well, much like a woman's anatomy, bookworms and geeks would not be too
familiar with the workings of a sporting event so you would need to make a
different reference for Fred to pick it up.
