    Sony Computer unveiled some additional details about the PlayStation 3(PS3) in Tokyo, Japan.The new console is going to be more expansive, because of the components and the long life-cycle.

    Nintendo isnt a threat to anybody, they dont even aim the console/games at same audiance as sony/microsoft and the 360 isnt exactly a powerhouse either. The ps3/360 are pretty much gonna be capable of the exact same thing game wise.

    concidering that the ps1 has served a 10 year life cycle, i see no reason to doubt the ps2 and 3 will do the same ;).

    The PSX had no competition. ;)

    With the.... lack.. of what developers wanted in these consoles, I dont think either are going to last very long, just like the xbox has already. 4-5, maybe 6 years tops..

    I have tons of nintendo stuff... and love the games.. they target their audience right, just dont have 3 million junk games. ;)

    More Sony BS. The PS1 had a 6 year life cycle, 1995 to 2001, while the PS2 is looking to have a 5 year life cycle with the PS3 launching in 2006. :rolleyes:
