Probably I will get one, but I wonīt be really excited until the system is in home, safe and working.

I've never been more excited about the November 17, US PS3 launch.

I couldn't care less about the Japanese PS3 launch.

I'm excited about the Japanese launch now that one will hopefully be winging its way to me shortly thereafter. By the time it gets to me, though, it'll probably be after the US launch (Japan->Hong Kong->US->Europe). Best case scenario, if I got one of the first, would be it arriving by the 17th.

The Yodobashi Camera near me said they're expecting about 100 units, but as of yesterday--less than one week before the damn launch--they still have no pricing information.

And of course, they are not taking pre-orders.

Im hoping to walk into a gaming shop in Taiwan on the 17th and walk out with a brand new 60 gig PS3 for much less than the local release cost back home (Australia) - and 4 to 6 months earlier too!

Do these thingies come free with the Famitsu magazine?

Also underhanded move of putting the FFXIII games on the cover with the PS3 when we don't even know when they release... :lol It will definitely sell some extra copies though.

Actually, the best idea might be to get a japanese ps3. "But why sp0rsk?" You are probably asking yourself right now. I'll tell you why! If you look at the current XBox360 import situation you will notice most american games are totally region free. You will also notice that not a single japanese game is region free. So if you own a JP360 you get the best of both worlds! Sp0rsk thinks that this will be the case with ps3 as well, thus buying a jp ps3 is the best way to get your sony gaming on.

Not excited because I just don't expect to be able to get one on Saturday. I'm number seven on the list at my local shop and I should have around 65000 yen to use towards getting a system by the weekend, but I don't feel like trying to camp out overnight somewhere hoping that I MIGHT get one.

If the local shop doesn't get enough units, I'll just wait until they do. I don't expect the PS3 to be anything like the DS Lite, which even now continues to sell out at some places every week. I also think it's nuts that Japan is only getting 80,000 units now.

Actually since it's region-free, the real reason why JPN PS3 >>>> US PS3 is that you can play JPN PS2/PS1 games and JPN PS2/PS1 games are >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> US PS2/PS1 games.

Even with a US PS3 I'm gonna need to have my PStwo hooked up for at least a few years.

oh man, i did some last minute wandering yesterday to see if anyone had suddenly changed their mind about preordering...

well, i guess i got to find out that the Wii preorders start this week, so i better make sure that if i do queue up i'm in the queue for a Ps3 not a wii preorder queue.

Tsutaya provided some unwelcome information. Their demo Ps3 unit has, unfortunately, shuffled off it's mortal coil after about a week of installation :/
RIP Tsutaya's demo unit. :/

Sofmap aki seem to be busy telling people that the reason they are having a lottery is because they are only getting *large intake of breath and huge pinch of "surely this is bullshit?" salt* ... 10 units...

i find that difficult to believe and we are talking guaranteed violence if that did come to pass.

Anyways, i'm now at the point where if i don't get a Ps3, i can wait - i've more than enough to keep me occupied (like trying to fathom out which HDTV to buy for a start... i'd be on a Bravia like flies at a shit convention, but the 'no 1080p via x360' quirk is offputting and NO WHERE stocks the high end samsungs... motherf.... costco today, can they save me?)

Annyways...

The excitement - it's here - in my pocket. I dip in and rub it once in a while, but i'm now at the point that i expect the whole launch day to be one massive mishandled ****up (watch as people queue up over night only to be greeted by some incomprehensible gaijin unfriendly lottery system the next morning!)

Strange enough, I am not excited. Not because I canít get one (hell, I got two pre-ordered!) but because there really isnít a single game I am compelled to play. RR7? Dude, I still got RR6 on 360. Resistance? Dude, I got F.E.A.R. on 360. Yeah yeah, so I love my 360 at the moment.

Iíll tell you though, Sonyís marketing hype with all the demo/playable kiosks is working. There will be lots of people lining up to get their hands on this sucker come Saturday. I don't know how many conversations I've overheard in the train talking about either the PS3 or DS.

yup - for Resistance (which was the one i was most interested in) i'm now just about to get hit with GoW, so that's dulling that a bit. I loved Ridge at TGS, but like you say, RR6 is still half done... and the other 4 games... well.... I'll probably buy them, but they'll be put down as "launch tax"

The wife has been on at me - she'll obviously get a PS3, but she's just like "why get one at launch? what is there that is so amazing that you just have to have one?"

and to be honest, i really can't answer that... I just want one because i... well... just want one. It's the new PS! it's just a natural reaction. :/

I would not call F.E.A.R. a Resistance substitute by any means of the word :P


I pretty much just want the system for Resistance, Motorstorm, and to play all the nice Blu-ray stuff coming out in November (Black Hawk Down, KoH:Dir Cut, Brave Story). But that's enough to get me fairly excited about the system.

yup - i'm convinced the price isn't dropping for a good 18 months as well, regardless of what X360 does, and as VF5 would be a legit "well, now i have to get this machine" game (Motorstorm potentially also - looks to have shaped up very nicely ) , then that would just mean buying a machine in a few months anyways, so i might as well be dicking about with the online stuff etc...

I played Resistance at E3 and really felt generic. Iíll give props to the graphics though. I have been waiting for F.E.A.R. in a long time, and I have enjoyed the slow-mo gunfights from little that Iíve played.

Resistance to me felt and looked like another Doom clone, but hey they can still prove me wrong. I am also playing Quake 4 right now so I think I have my monster-horror FPS dosage juuust fine ;-)
