Press Release Source: Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. to Launch Its Next Generation Computer Entertainment System, in Spring 2006
Monday May 16, 7:30 pm ET
Unrivaled Performance With the Introduction of Cell Processor and Many Advanced Technologies, and Backwards Compatible With PlayStation® and PlayStation®2

LOS ANGELES, May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- At a press conference held in Los Angeles, California, today, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) revealed the outline of its PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3) computer entertainment system, incorporating the world's most advanced Cell processor with super computer like power. Prototypes of PS3 will also be showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the world's largest interactive entertainment exhibition held in Los Angeles, from May 18th to 20th.

PS3 combines state-of-the-art technologies featuring Cell, a processor jointly developed by IBM, Sony Group and Toshiba Corporation, graphics processor (RSX) co-developed by NVIDIA Corporation and SCEI, and XDR memory developed by Rambus Inc. It also adopts BD-ROM (Blu-ray Disc ROM) with maximum storage capacity of 54 GB (dual layer), enabling delivery of entertainment content in full high-definition (HD) quality, under a secure environment made possible through the most advanced copyright protection technology. To match the accelerating convergence of digital consumer electronics and computer technology, PS3 supports high quality display in resolution of 1080p(*) as standard, which is far superior to 720p/1080i.

With an overwhelming computing power of 2 teraflops, entirely new graphical expressions that have never been seen before will become possible. In games, not only will movement of characters and objects be far more refined and realistic, but landscapes and virtual worlds can also be rendered in real- time, thereby elevating the freedom of graphics expression to levels not experienced in the past. Gamers will literally be able to dive into the realistic world seen in large screen movies and experience the excitement in real-time.

In 1994, SCEI launched the original PlayStation® (PS), followed by PlayStation®2 (PS2) in 2000 and PlayStation®Portable (PSP®) in 2004, every time introducing the latest advancement in technology and bringing innovation to interactive entertainment software creation. Over 13,000 titles have been developed by now, creating a software market that sells more than 250 million copies annually. PS3 offers backward compatibility enabling gamers to enjoy these enormous assets from PS and PS2 platforms.

PlayStation family of products are sold in more than 120 countries and regions around the world. With cumulative shipments reaching more than 102 million for PS and approximately 89 million for PS2, they are the undisputed leaders and have become the standard platform for home entertainment. After 12 years from the introduction of the original PS and 6 years from the launch of PS2, SCEI brings PS3, the newest platform with the most advanced next generation computer entertainment technology.

With the delivery of Cell based development tools that has already begun, development of game titles as well as tools and middleware are in progress. Through collaboration with world's leading tools and middleware companies, SCEI will offer full support to new content creation by providing developers with extensive tools and libraries that will bring out the power of the Cell processor and enable efficient software development.

Preparations are under way for launch of PS3 and new generation software in the spring of 2006.

(*) 1080p/720p/1080i: "p" stands for progressive scan method, "i" stands
for interlace method. 1080p is the highest resolution within the HD
standard.

"SCEI has continuously brought innovation to the world of computer entertainment, such as real-time 3D computer graphics on PlayStation and the world's first 128 bit processor Emotion Engine (EE) for PlayStation 2. Empowered by the Cell processor with super computer like performance, a new age of PLAYSTATION 3 is about to begin. Together with content creators from all over the world, SCEI will accelerate the arrival of a new era in computer entertainment."

Yeah they are real, but that doesn't mean its the final version. I doubt it'll have touch sensitive buttons, that would bump up the price too much IMO, but I wouldn't mind them.

On another board people are complaining about the design too, I think they need to shut up. Its supposed to be simple, like your DVD player, VCR, or...you know...original Playstations and Playstation 2s. So many people were expecting this out of this world design, and come on, that's rediculas. You're going to piss a lot more people off with a crazy design than a simple one. I don't like the font choice, seems Spiderman-ish, but again, modifications might still be made.

I think the key is, its what is INSIDE THAT COUNTS...and what is inside destroys the XBOX 360

At the conference they showed a PS3 version of a scene from Final Fantasy VII. The reporter said the game played out with CG like graphics, that were absolutely amazing. This was only a tech demo though, a FFVII remake will NOT be on the PS3.

They also showed a scene from The Gateway, where the reporter said London looked more impressive than anything he's ever scene.

Launch games include a Grand Theft Auto game, a Metal Gear Solid game, and many more. Go look at IGN for updates.

Really? I'd love to see that scene too >.< . Hopefully it will be available on the net later.

The PS3 comes in 3 flavors. White, Gray and Black.

[Edit]
Forgot to mention that I hate the spiderman font. I think it looks a lot better than the new xbox though. That thing's about as big as the old one. MS didn't learn anything from big consoles.

The PS3 games certainly looks better than the Xbox 360's... but the actual console looks worse.
http://ps3.ign.com/articles/614/614619p1.html

It's nice to know that it's backwards compatible with even the PSone! It plays SACD and a bunch of other new stuff, but sadly, no word on VCDs.

And the PS3 logo looks like the Spider-Man (movie) font...?

It just means that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are capable of running the amazing Unreal 3 engine... like the PC. Lots of other developers licensed the engine from Epic so they don't have to build the basic structure of a game and could focus on developing the content.

Games like Lineage II, Magna Carta, Splinter Cell, Star Wars: Republic Commando and many others are based on the Unreal 2 engine.

Check out the clips at gamespot.com.

Killzone 2 looks absolutely mind-blowing...I mean I had to watch it again and again.

Basically almost every trailer blew me away (except Tekken and Devil May Cry...they didn't give me much). I think PS3 is showing Xbox and Nintendo who's boss lol!

I just finished watching the two hour Sony Press conference. I can only say that it's amazing. In terms of power, the Playstation 3 outdoes the Xbox 360. In terms of games, the PS3 has an insane GPU processor thanks to nVidia. The entire thing just seems unrealistic.
