Sony released a statement denying an early release. I don't think they are ready to release ps3 yet, there would be more info on games being developed for it and such. I'm pretty sure it will still be 2005 maybe late 2004 if they try to go early.

I heard ps3 was going to use a cell chip in the system and all the games will be cel shaded unlike with games with no cel shading at all.Too bad,it's a joke.
Bwhahahahahahahaha LOL LOL LOL LOL

Oh, BTW Sony has REPEATEDLY said 2005 at the earliest. Repeat after me:

"I will get my lame, flaming ass off ot eh fanboy newsgroup, and use some common sense"

Those of you who so immediately dismiss this as bunk should really read the news. Right or wrong it's not some fanboy rumor.

Article is Dismissed because:
The quotes from a unidentified parts supplier : HAAAA x_x
The parts suppliers will start trial production next month: Everyone knows the problems Sony had getting enough PS2's produced. It took almost a year after they had started to get a million units made. So no way they can start next month and get enough ready for this years release.
The main processor chip and Graphics chip is still in production and won't be ready for at least a year.

So think for yourself and don't believe everything you read.

It'll never happen. There's been no hype, there have been no early release rumors other than this one, Sony already owns the market (thus they'd be cannabilizing their own business) and most importantly THEY DON'T HAVE ANY GAMES. Don't you think that something would've leaked out by now if major developers were working on PS3 games already?

More likely it's simply a revision of the PS2 (included hard drive, cheaper parts, redesigned interior, etc.), and someone somewhere confused it with being a brand new console.

I would be beyond shocked if this happened. It makes absolutely zero sense to do this. For what? To get a "jump" on their competitors? What competitors? They're not even done selling PS1s yet!

The only official word from sony in that entire article:

The chip, called ``Cell,'' is still in development, Molly Smith, a spokeswoman with Sony Computer Entertainment America, said on March 4.

What else is in question here guys?

I like topics like these because they're controversial. The point of posting controversial news items - provided you dispute it - is to get people to express their reasoing for or (preferably) against it. What bugs me about some of the replies when a topic like this is posted is that the replies are often even less thought out than the original news.

I just wish Sony would make a system that would not be faulty after 2 years.
I work at a major Retailer and I tell you that I see more DEFECTIVE PS2's than I have seen any other system. If they release the PS3 this year it will spell disaster for there reputation. I am not a hater of any company or system, just want one that doesn't work after 2 years.

personally i can see the logic behind releasing a ps3 now-
even if it is a compromised version of what they planned to do in the future, they could make a machine that is on par with both the xbox and GC and bring it out this year, why not?
they could sell it at the same price point and make it totally backwards compatible with existing ps2/ps1 games, maybe even throw in a harddrive and such... i guess it basically would be an updated ps2, but is that so farfetched? at the very least it would bring them (hardware wise) close to head to head with MS

But what would be the point ?
I own all 3 systems and the PS2 sometimes looks BETTER !
Also Sony "should" have learned from Sega that upgrading constantly doesn't work.
And as pointed out the PS2 is the market leader right now and the Gamecube and XBOX are getting less and less 3rd party support.
I'm not saying it won't happen but it doesn't make any sense to do it now.
Then again since when do big companies do what makes sense. LOL

maybe if you are comparing a graphically good PS2 game to a poor Xbox game- then i can see it.
if you use a high quality display there is no question PS2 is behind xbox.

I'm talking about the same game on all 3 systems.
Spider-man Looks better on my Hdtv on Ps2 than Xbox or Gamecube.
And it doesn't matter if I'm talking about a "Great" game on PS2 and a "poor" game on Xbox. I'm talking about the way the games look overall. The PS2 games never look inferior enough to warrant new and improved hardware. And that is , like I said, If they look inferior . Most of the time they don't.

I think they are saying it to make nintendo, microsoft, and that new up start for get the name of them, worry. But like everything else in gaming it will be delayed and delayed. I just hope it has a hard drive and PS2 and PS1 game work on it.

Interesting point. I've read a few bitter rants on the Xbox enthusiasts' board at gamefaqs regarding this point. Usually the blame is placed on "lazy developers" who code out the game for the PS2 first, since it's reputedly the most difficult to program for, and more importantly because it has the largest market share (thus if delays occur in porting the game to other systems, at least the PS2 rev can get out there and earn money). Then, when it's time to port the game to the Xbox (and GCN) the "lazy developers", shockingly enough, don't recode the game from the ground up to take advantage of all the doodly-dads the other systems have that can make the game prettier. End result: games that don't look that much better on the Xbox (or GCN) than they do on PS2.

Is it true? Dunno. Doesn't sound too unreasonable to me, though. I've got an Xbox and a PS2, so I don't really have a dog in the fight, but I do like to check out the wailing and gnashing of teeth at gamefaqs sometimes...and go HA HA.

What's to think about? It smells like BS and it is. It is interesting to discuss the possibilities and the reasons why and why not if there's some inkling of believability to it. There's not.

are you serious? i have used all three on an HDTV and declared the Xbox hands down winner-no constest. All three using component video. are you using component on each one? also, do you have the xbox set to output 720p and 1080i images?
