    I will get this started.
    The PS3's design is sleek...while its kinda what I expected, I simply cannot live with the controller, it looks like a boomerang! guess I cant judge til I hold it...
    The game titles so far are HUGE, Devil may cry 4, Gran Tourismo 5, Tekken 6, a new GTA, these are huge titles, and if those are all on lazunch (with I doubt it) It will no doubt be one of the best launch lineups in history.

    The conference was nice and long, but it was worth it.

    I like the design of the system, but that controller has got to be a joke. They said the system is backward compatible, but where are the slots for the PS1-2 memory cards?

    Killzone2 was incredible. I cant wait to play it. I just wish they would have shown more Tekken footage. Some of those other games showned by the new companies were also nice. Especially that FPS.

    Well it's going to be a while before I get my hands on that system, because I never buy a system at launch. Ya know...the bugs in the hardware thing.

    speculation on price...if games are going to be 60-70...I am assuming atleast 350 for the system...

    its funny how we were used as lab rats really, by companies releasing special edition games, and by people buying them....alot of them we showed them we are not afraid to spend $55-60 on a game.

    i think the concept art looks like something you would find in a kitchen rather a game room, but the launch line up is pretty sweet.

    the video of killzone @gamespot is pretty incredible:

    Thank you Sony for including PSone compatibility. I was really hoping for that. But where can I plug in my PS1/2 controllers and memory cards? You want me to buy a USB adaptor for those? Damn't. (Note, just my thinking).

    Overall, I'm alot more excited for the PS3 than the 360, even though the PS3 looks like shit and uses the Spidey font.

    Now its Nintendo's turn. Everybody's eyes will be on them. Let's see this "revolution" (crosses fingers).

    I'm not so sure about the $350 mark. I'm not saying they wont do it...I'm just saying they may not. When the PS2 was released, it was a guaranteed hit. Now that theyre competing with Microsoft, they may undershoot the price just like they did with the PS1 vs. Sega. On the other hand, theyre not being released nearly as close together as the PS1 & Saturn were so I could be dead wrong.

    even though the PS3 looks like shit and uses the Spidey font.
    Spidey font? You noticed that too? As soon as I looked at it I thought "It looks like it says Spiderman 2."
    The console looks sweet but the controller looks like an "All gravy, no meat & potatoes" 3rd party controller.
    Motorstorm looks BADASS!!!

    Wow! 1080P resolution, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3 Ethernet ports, 2 HDMI ports, CD/DVD/SACD/BR compatible. Wireless HD Eye Toy. Memory Stick and SD slots. Backwards compatible with all Playstation software before it. IF it's priced right, AND with good games (a good start already in progress), I don't see how Sony could be taken from first place.

    The controllers look like an old PS1 third-party I remember seeing. They don't look impressive, but I'll wait to pass judgment until I hold one.

    I just got done watching the 1 hour and 50 minute long Sony press conference. I'm sold. I somehow must save up enough for a HDTV and PS3 (and a Rev too of course).

    I'm in love. *THIS* is the console to own next year. Of course, in the long-term, I'll purchase the 360. And I'll probably buy the Revolution from day one. But this, this I want to pre-order. Stunning. Sony have done it again.

    HDD... But then whats the point of being able to continue to play your "old" favorites, if you can't really continue to play them?

    We can probably expect a memory card to USB device.

    Sony always has made the coolest looking systems(Second only to Sega). IMO

    I'm still abit worryied about this controller though, and I know I should wait to actually hold it... But it just doesn't look good. :/ I remember thinking the Xbox controller looked bad, and I ended up loving it though.

    I agree about the controller. When I first saw the gamecube controller I said "how the $#*%# do you use that thing right?" but it ended up feeling perfectly comfortable, especialy with the awkward c stick.
    I have faith, Im sure they wouldent release a controller that felt too awkward.

    I didn't know it did SACDs, I somehow missed that in the official materials. That's super cool.

    This thing does indeed seem unstoppable though, it just does too much too well. It supplants too many devices to NOT be a success.

    And the launch lineup is unbelievable, if that stuff is really for launch.

    I'd say that I'm most excited by the PS3, followed *very* closely by the Revolution, and then the Xbox 360 a more distant third.

    I agree the ps3 other than the controller is amazing,

    the revolution is definitly number 2 and the xbox 360 is a very far 3rd that I don't see suceeding especially at this time.
