gingerjet: J. Frank Parnell: The most interesting thing about this is that it heralds the death of the console as we've known it and cements the future dominance of the glorious PC master race.The very same PC that is dying off?
5 star chef of tv dinners: I saw some things that were a little interesting but nothing that blew my socks off. Still concerned about the used games element though. Also, the price is still pending. Overall, I will give it a wait and see approach for now.Final score: C
WhyteRaven74: Mentat: Well, the developers biatched up a storm about having to program on the Cell.That's because Sony didn't bother offering much in the way of guidance and basically said they weren't going to tell them how to do stuff when it launched.

spamdog: Just farting out of my mouth here, but you know what I'd love to see in a console?- Officially sanctioned homebrew software and games- No paid license required to run your own code on your console- Inbuilt media center with support for pirate-friendly formats, and easy integreation with network file shares/external HDD's- Easily swappable HDD bay- Less cocking around with profiles and such - if only I had like a card or some widget with an RFID chip or something which I could plug into the controller and it would have my saves/profile on it.- Free online multiplayer service (cost is quite prohibitive in Australia, although I believe it has gone down recently)- TV, and TV recordingOf course, there's just too much greed involved so nothing like that will ever happen.

quiotu: What you basically want is an Ouya with more functionality. Good luck with that.
RoyFokker'sGhost: 5) Cloud network for PS 1-3 titles: very nice solution for the demands for backwards compatibility
