Gonna be a couple of years before I get a PS3.

$499 SKU
- 20 gig HD
- no memory card/stick ports
- no HDMI port (rendering HD blu-ray DVD playback useless)
- no wi-fi

$599
- 60 gig HD
- Yes to the no's above

Too expensive for me, waiting for Wii :)

The specs are quite different from last year, and that is pretty disappointing. Oh well, Nintendo press conference in 30 minutes.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but:

Am I the only one who is not that thrilled with the hype about the next generation consoles? The XBOX360 was no big deal to me (despite killer graphics) and the upcoming PS3 is waayyyy too expensive to even consider. Could care less about the Nintendo Wiiwii (or whatever the hell it's called). I've gotten by fine with my Gamecube for the past two years. The only possible good thing about the new consoles coming out is that it could lead to price drops in the existing ones. Either that or I could get one used. I've been considering getting a PS2 since they dropped in price now to $130 but money is tight right now. I was considering PS2 or XBOX, but PS2 has a wider selection of games than GC. I'll probably get one soon, but it will be years before I even consider getting a next-gen console no matter how cutting-edge they are. The prices are just too rich for me just to have something to play games on.

Just my two cents....

Yeah, you are the only one Chuck :)

I love my Xbox 360 and play on getting a Wii when they come out. I've been a game junkie since the 2600 so...

I was impressed by Microsoft's showing at this years Expo. I will probably end up gettin a 360 by the end of the year. The Wii shows a lot of promise, and will more than likely yield quite a few great 1st party titles. Sony really has to get it together, I wasn't impressed by much except a few random games. Won't be purchasing a PS3 any time soon.
