What the hell, I was talking to a friend and he told me that the PS3 is coming out 2005, and I thought he was BS'n me. I was wondering if he was lying and if anyone can give me the facts.

-Thanx- :cool:

Well, it sure is comming, though 2005 may be a tad optimistic.

These guys (http://www.ps3land.com/faq.php) might know more

I've heard similar rumors, but so far the only thing that I can confirm is that the PS3 will be released in the next 2 years. :rolleyes:

Other rumors: it will have a 120GB hard drive, it will have a DVD burner (like it says in Abbadon's link), it will have a unified memory architecture (possibly up to 192-256MB), it will have TiVo capabilities, it will have broadband built-in, it will natively support HD signals, etc.

Sounds good so far, but only time will tell if Sony can get the PS3 out the door before M$ pumps out the XBox2 (which is rumored to be released about the same time). One thing is for sure - Sony learned their lesson with the "Emotion Engine" of the PS2, so at least the PS3 will be easier to program. :p

I read in the Official PS2 magazine that it's expected for release around November/December 2005.

Well I see that the emotion engine was not what it was expected to be in the PS2, however I read in PS2 Magazine that the PS3 is due in 2005 as well. But you know how it is they said they were going to launch the PS2 in a certain time....but it didn't.
