Well, it might be the "Ub3r 1337 Ed1t10n" heh. But still, if you pay less for something, I can understand if it doesnt have all the bells and whistles. But to shortchange it like Sony has done....not cool. You can upgrade your 360 to the point where it is maxxed out, but with Sony, you wont be able to. And if they give you that option later, imagine the pricing. This is HDMI we are talking about. Not cheap.

i mean, component is component, and its been around for a while. 1080i is th highest you can get with component. you need DVI/HDMI for 1080p, everyone knows this.

and the price is absurd. i dont konw if id buy a PS3 for $300 and they want double that (i dont consider the inferior version worth owning if it doesnt have HDMI)

EDIT it would appear 1080p over component is either marketing [content edited] or just plain [content edited]

Sony isn't doing anything smart for this generation. The PSP has been lagging behind the DS in sales for a while and once June 11 comes around and DS Lite is released, you can expect the lead to go even larger.

I also read up that the Nov. 17th launch is just a paper launch for PS3. The actual systems are supposed to ship in March of 2007.

no i believe they will be out for the holliday season, in limited #'s like the 360 was and just like the last revision of the ps2 was a couple years ago. they know that they will sell ps3's like hotcakes around christmas so they will be limited.

I think that the PS3 is going to be even more hard to find than finding a 360 during its launch.

I'm going to wait out a year or so to let all of the good games come out.

i dont know much about the topic, but there are a few component video cables out there that claim 1080p signals, not just 1080i.

well naturally feeding a signal thru HDMI digitally, and thru Component, they aren't exact same, but if end results to the TV is a signal that is 1080p, whats the difference how its sent? they will pretty much look the same, right?

pretty much, but not.

the component cables can not handle 60fps of 1920x1080 (1080p)... they just cant. they simulate it or something, and even then, only sometimes, and only with the right equipment. read the AVS forum links... its even a little above me how they do it.

and analog HD... i just dont know. i mean i have an analog HDTV, and i have component inputs on this monitor. disregarding the refresh rate/i or p (like, on a still image) the monitor looks WAY better using the digital input. it might have to do with the monitor specifically, but digital is the way to go.

Anyone think the alliance between Nintendo and M$ is even gonna help? I think it might, but then does it mean joint promoting the systems and selling them as a bundle or what?

I think it will help Nintendo by the size of MS. Its marketing and such. And it will help MS as well. The nintendo buyers would probably be more willing to look at MS as well, after their Revolution purchse. I am sorry, to me, its not Wii. Revolution is a much cooler name.

That's a big 10-4. Wii just sounds ridiculous to me.

Component can do 1080p but not at 60FPS it is at 24FPS. Which suxxors for gaming.

'p' IS 60hz/60fps.

1080i is 30fps/30hz...

EDIT per se. i mean its 24fps but not interlaced, which isnt really like every other 'p'. id rather just do 30hz interlaced, and have the illusion of 60fps...
unless im watching a movie
because a movies is 24fps anyway
but they just need to cut the crap
very few TVs have 1080p component
they should have just put DVI/HDMI on it

so you see, nothing new...

I don't even go into this much detail, if the games are good and the graphics are pretty good and I have fun which is most importat, then I'm happy.
