    Ok this is probably a dumb one but I gotta know.
    Can I use a computer monitor with the PS3 as opposed to an actual television.
    I'm thinking I could save a few bucks if I could do that.

    24 inches... WOW.

    As I always say, bigger, better = Buy now! Seriously, that is a huge monitor, with an amazing response time and resolution too!

    You can, just find an adapter that turns a HDMi head into a DVI head (HDMi is the PS3's output and DVI is your mintor's input) and you are all set for HD gaming.

    fan?

    ok ok I bet you'll think it's a really dumb question and it's been answered already but, I'm gonna go ahead and ask it one more time.

    Does the PlayStation 3 have a fan or are they relying on the crap load of holes to allow the air to escape? the reason I ask is because everyone says it is really quite and fans are kinda loud.

    Will PS3 affect price of 1080p tv's?

    Do you guys think the release of the PS3 will affect the price of 1080p tv's? I'm wondering if I should buy one now or next year around July.

    Just another random question...

    I thought the design of the controller was going to be different. Is it really any different from the PS2 controller?

    Thanks to NoUseMercenary for the sig. Great work!

    PS3 will increase the demand for HD sets, including 1080p HD screens. This can cause an initial spike in the costs of HD sets, but as soon as the production catches up with the supply, the cost should go down a bit. Whether it will actually be signifficant compared to a normal rate of decrease in prices of HD TVs is hard to say.

    The bottom line is the longer you wait, the cheaper the sets are going to get regardless of whether or not the Ps3 is released. If you can wait, then I suggest that's what you do.


    I didn't want your rep points anyways, jerk.

    I would expect there to be at least a CPU fan, but I am just guessing. Not all fans are loud, though, just the cheap ones.

    I'm guessing atleast one exhaust fan, considering the GPU.

    Yah they said theres an exhaust fan. They meaning people from OPM/PSM who have had a demo unit and said theres two small fans in the back i believe(For exhaust and PSU). Maybe some intake in the front? who knows. And probably a fan for the CPU.

    The fans may also be quiet ball bearing ones. Or dampened in some other way. Lower RPM maybe?

    I'm hoping the increase in demand lowers production costs leading to lowered prices.

    even if it does lower production cost they will charge the same amount for at least one year.

    Sony aims to ship 6 million units world wide by March 07, which means each continent gets about 2 million units if they are shared equally. You should expect new shipments of PS3s to come every month, so a second shipment of PS3s shold arrive at your local store before Christmas.

    PS3 is as quiet as the slimline PS2 (which is DAMN quiet) and it doesn't overheat, how they are aiming to ventilate it, I'd think with a fan judging by the size and shape of the exhaust vents in the back.

    It depends on how well PS3 sells, however, I think sales of PS3s will have minimal effect on the price of TVs since that is a whole other different industry in itself.

    SIXAXIS has refined trigger buttons, a home button, tilt sensing and it is wireless and uses Blutooth.

    Ps3 games will look great on a 720p HDTV. HD is good!

    If a game is made in 1080p the Ps3 won't have to upscale the games to 1080p ofcourse. But if needed I think the PS3 will upscale the game...otherwise you will have those black bars I guess.
