This new control scheme is my least favorite thing about the Wii.  I'll likely still buy it for the old school gaming action, but any game that REQUIRES me to exert physical activity... is not for me.

Yeah... honestly I ordered from VM for the same reason.  If shit goes bad, I can just post there and it will be taken care of ASAP.  Having direct lines into a CEO and VP of a company is generally a very good thing.

Again, you have to buy the $600.00 box to get the Blu-Ray playback capabilities, yet they are excluding from you the very means to be able to take advantage of that, out of the box. It's like you buying a car but having to purchase a steering wheel to be able to drive it.

I still don't see how this is any different than the 5.1 sound issue.

In the end, it's an extra $10 - $20 I have to spend for a cable... when the entire damn thing costs $600, it's WAY LOW on my piss-off-o-meter.

* gellar actually doesn't have to buy a new cable, he has one plugged in to his DVD player already.

None of the consoles come with optical cables either, so this shouldn't at all be surprising.    Sony surely doesn't want to pay for a cable in every console box that a very small percentage up front will even use.  Expect it to come with the standard component cables in the upper version.  (PS2, Xbox and 360 didn't come with optical cables either...  i fail to see how this is some horror show that PS3 doesn't come with its high end cables)

What he said.

* gellar still needs to find a place that will let him preorder a PS3.

Again, it is hypocritical of them to an extent to make you pay top dollar for simply the OPTION of BR playback in HD, yet not include the means to take advantage of that. We've already proven that cost cannot be an issue, and that HDMI is nearly universally sold on all new HDTV's (and included on any decent HDTV made in the last year or two), so it's only going to have more market prescence as more and more HDTV's are sold.

I think you guys are underestimating just how many sets are out there with HDMI inputs that potentially could be plugged up to PS3's.

No... I actually have an HDMI set that will be used by a PS3 slywink.  I'm certain I'm not underestimating it.

5.1 audio has been a standard for what... nearly 10 years now and it's not a cable included with systems?  Hell, the original XBox required you to buy an entirely new cable just for the priviledge of being able to use an optical cable, regardless of whether you needed the other cable or not.  (That's right, two cables for 5.1 sound. WOO!)

Let's face it, companies LIKE dicking us around for cables.  Sony doing this is not anything new.  In fact, I was shocked when MS included the component cable with the premium system and would definitely consider that to be more the exception than the norm.

* gellar has lots of cables.

Quote from: Lee on September 01, 2006, 06:39:58 PM

I read somewhere in my search that the MS one will be $150 and come with a force feedback version of PGR3. I  don't understand why we would need a new version of the game though. Does this mean other older racing titles won't have FF? Will Test Drive have FF?

Most likely... for racing games, FF requires seperate programing than just the rumble that the controller can do.  GT4 on the PS2, for example, has superb FF.

* gellar would likely wait for the MS one, as no game really has touted FF so far.

Yeah to be honest... anything north of $500 I'd DEFINITELY consider doing it myself.  Hell, at $400 I was tempted.  In the end though, I decided to be a lazy fuck.

IF I could guarantee it would fire on first boot, I would've done it hands down.  However, the possibility of me cocking it up was great enough that I wanted nothing to do with it.  Power to those that do though... I just lack that kind of patience.

* gellar does miss that $400 though.

I hope they would be nice for those outrageous prices they are charging.  In fact, they should offer free phone sex for DOUBLING the price of what the same PC would cost to build.  I am shocked people pay those kinds of prices.  Err.. Well I guess I am not shocked..  eek

It's about a $400 difference for my PC, I believe.  I'm more than willing to pay that in order to spend a Saturday doing something else rather than fucking around with a PC.
