Being a computer geek I am well impressed by the specs:

3.2 Ghz processor, but thats not the impressive bit...the speed of the RAM is also 3.2Ghz ohmy.gif

Uses that new fancy DVD techi stuff as well

NVidia graphics as well

Wonder if it really is twice as fast as the XBox 360?

If i am not here i am somewhere else

Although I would share this sentiment, don't just try to give the "nah nah nah nah nah we're better than you" treatment to the Xboxers tongue.gif. Afterall, who's to say that developers will be able to exploit all of the impressive specs - it will cost them alot to upgrade their development systems.

in a normal PC you have a processor flying along at x Ghz and you have the RAM which holds the instructions for the processor to process. Now the speed of RAM these days is normally 400Mhz but you can fiddle and get 800Mhz.

Whereas the RAM in the Playstation equals the frequency of the processor which means there will be a free flow of data from ram to the processor which measn increased performance because the processor is spending lots of time waiting for data to reach it

If i am not here i am somewhere else

Playstation weren't taking any chances here. I love the look of it (not to keen on the new xbox look).

The controller looks wierd. I had expected them to keep the same design as PS1 + 2 but now I see it needed a change.

The only down side will be if they bring it out at a whooping price!

Will it live up the its expectations?
