Not sure if anyone else posted this but...Playstation 3 in Japan??!!

Some kids at my school brought in a magazine saying that work on the PS3 was nearly complete! It's suppose to be virtual reality and puts you in the actual game. Sounds cool! I didn't personally see the magazine but everyone was talking about it...Anyway, it seems like it came out way too fast, that's my only reason for thinking all those kids were lying. Fighting and shooting games would be SO cool on it! Well...I don't know what to make out of this...what do you guys think?

Would be nice having a personal VR setup, but the PS3 won't be coming out in Japan until 2005. And it should boast tons of power.

Its terms of the market it would be suicide for sony to bring out a new system when the PS2 is even close to near death yet. Also I have doubts on it being virtual reality setup. My guess is that you can hook up a VR setup, but I don't think game developers would like making purely VR games.

VR setup that puts you in the game. I hope those kids weren't thinking of like the PS9 which they had a cool commerical on. ( it was to promote PS2 );

Sony still can't figure out what they want the PS3 to look like I think. For a while it was like they were making announcements on a weekly basis "OK, now it's gonna use networked computing over the internet" o.o "Wait, now it's going to be a part of your toaster and your microwave and your refridgerator" o.O "No no no, now we want to make it... ummm... VR AND ABLE TO FLY." O.o

Sony's a bunch of morons that just luckily figured out how to get a video game market monopoly the first time around and is just trying their hardest to stay in gaming news so they don't lose it.

Sony does not have a monoply. They may be winning the console wars right now against X-box and Game Cube but Sony does not have complete dominence. IMO Nintendo back in it's hey days held a higher % of the market share then compared to Sony right now.

As for the play station 3 article sorry I don't buy it. Just like what someone already said it's still too early to be completed.

Yeah, I thought the Playstion 2 was winning the whole console battle. It seems Nintendo losing from all I've heard and X-Box is just...there...It would be different to have a VR in your own home, though. I bet that you would be able to play non-VR games 'cause how would platform games be done? Not in VR I hope! Besides, no one would really want a VR only game console.

I don't know about the VR though. It sounds really neat but I doubt the technology exists to make it economically viable, at least for now. Maybe when the PS 4 comes out they'll have it but I doubt the PS 3 will have it. Honestly I wouldn't mind playing a little bit of Final Fantasy in VR mode wooo hooo. Ohhh and how about VR on the internet! *drools*
