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.
$499 dollars for the 20 gig version. $599 dollars for the 60 gig version.
Yeesh! I’ll wait a year or two before even considering buying this thing. Way too much money.
