Title: Impressions - Sony E3 Press Conference Posted: May 08, 2006 (08:08 PM)
From everything that was shown (from the eye candy that was Final Fantasy XIII, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo, and most everything else), I thought the most impressive event was the Playstation 3 controller. If not to balance the field with Nintendo's own controller, the six-degree-of-movement controller should be an intuitive user interface - though, besides controlling airplanes, I'm not sure how applicable this will be (outside the scope that the Revolution's - sorry, Wii's - controller has) but we will just have to see. I also hope that this feature is optional, at least in-game, because I surmise that it would be draining on the hands, wrist, and arms to have to continually swing the controller around. Last, the Playstation 3 will be arriving in full blast for a cost of $499 US (20 GB) or $599 US (60 GB) on November 17. Why do we have to wait so long? *Flings both arms into the sky*

Sony deserves props for doing away with the Boomerang. $500-$600 is rather steep, though.

I suppose they might be factoring in more than two years worth of online service - to compensate for the $100 difference with Xbox and its Xbox Live functionality.
But anyway, I don't know how many of us will be actually purchasing the system at launch.

60GB sounds like a lot, but they haven't provided any online details yet. However, keeping the dual shock controller is a smart idea, even with this six degrees of movement nonsense. £599 is steep for a console, though, especially considering that they haven't announced any interesting games.
