    I guess it will support MMORPG only? After FF went online, I can't find a meaning in life to keep my PS2 already.

    Thinking of owning the ps2 since 1998(debut)
    guy u think it made sense to invest in the set now? or just wait for the price to dropped further...?

    Time to save some money for this new gadget. Considering Xbox aggresive marketing, will PS still able to survive after PS3. The Xbox is catching, latest chart shown they *almost* gained half the market share

    I believe this is the 3GHz PowerPC processor that Steve Jobs promised all Macintosh Devotees last year at MacWorld San Francisco...

    NIce, but I'll go for PSP. Movies on the go!

    Sony should be more aggressive in the marketing. I think half of the Singaporeans with Xboxes got them FOC from Starhub.

    XBox? NEVER!!

    PS3? Maybe... maybe not. No nice games also, and I play mostly strategy + RPG.

    the only reason why xbox got so much "share" is because they give so many away FREE.

    woohoo, go PS3! go PS3!

    Thats why we should care about the future of PS. As we all know, Xbox is back by an almost endless supply of money (microsoft). They can easily crush any competitor. Xbox just hired 3 best japanese gamers designer (one of them who design FF). These designer suppose to design game solely for Xbox. I will get the link if I found it.

    Xbox is only catching up in US...
    Outside there r still more PS2 supporters...Especially in Japan, the ratio is 140 PS2 : 1 Xbox

    Total shipments up to April 2005

    PS2 = 87 million units
    Xbox = 20+ million units

    But I agree, M$ will do anything to crush their competitors, with their endless resources...

    Lets support Sony!

    x-box design is so 'beng', big cross over a big box, reminds me of the 'tubro' hifis some ppl love back in the late 80s and early 90's.
    PS shape's are more refined/ beautiful, like Mac machines.
