Details regarding the PS3 launch were released at E3 last night. Similar to Xbox 360, The PS3 will be available in two different hard drive sizes: 20GB and 60GB.

PS3 will hit stores in North America, Europe, and Australia on November 17, 2006. The system will release in Japan six days earlier. Sony plans to release 2 million PS3s during the initial launch phase, another 2 million before the end of 2006 and another 2 million before March 31, 2007.

The PS3 controller also made an appearance. Say bye bye to the crazy design, instead the controller is very very similar to the PS2 Dual-Shock with the only noticeable differences being the incorporation of a 6-degree tilt-sensitive feature and the removal of the vibration. The L2/R2 buttons have also been enlarged, analogue sticks allow for more tilting, and there is increased precision for all buttons.

That’s the good news.

The price?

$499 dollars for the 20 gig version. $599 dollars for the 60 gig version.

Start saving.

Yeesh! I’ll wait a year or two before even considering buying this thing. Way too much money.

  1. In other news, the GameCube is $99, and most of the games go for $20. 🙂

    On a completely, completely unrelated note, I got a GameCube not too long ago. Wooo!

    I dunno man, that PS3 looks way too scratchable for me. And fancy. I bet it’s complicated and it’ll have all the same games as the Xbox 360.

  2. yeah, I know, but I’m not an Xbox player, I never played Halo, or anything from that system. Not that I’ve played much on PS2 but I’m loyal to things, probably blindly loyal…

  3. like, I know that WWE isn’t as good as it used to be, yet I can’t seem to drag myself away from it…I like the PS2, it looks like it belongs in your entertainment center. The PS3 doesn’t, it looks to shinning and not as cool as the PS2, but I’m sure it’ll sell out like crazy, regardless of the price.
