PlayStation 3 to appear at Taipei Game Show

By Derek Sooman on February 12, 2006, 9:31 AM
This year’s Taipei Game Show will see an appearance of the long awaited PlayStation 3. About one quarter of Sony's exhibit space at the show will be given over to the new console.

Since Sony announced the PS3, the console has become the gamers' white rabbit. When the system was unveiled at last year's Electronics Entertainment Expo, it did so accompanied by a trailer reel of games in development for the system, including new Killzone and Tekken titles. Months later at Tokyo Game Show 2005, hopes of playable PS3 demos were dashed, but attendees were treated to a handful of new game trailers, most notably Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

It will really be nice to finally see the thing and hopefully we'll have the price, release date, and games set in stone so that all of the rumors can stop.

Someone told me it was going to be around 1000$ but the same person told that M$ was -forced- to give the source code while we read here that they -decided- to license the source code.Edit: Found this: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/615/615745p1.htmlThe 1000$ was not true I beleive. But they only put 512MB of RAM(Compared to what the CPU will be)? That's easy to fill even with games that my Athlon XP 2000+ still supports. And they plan HD support also...Even at 475$, I don't think that it's SO expensive : Some people get home DVD recorders for 350$! You can record only from composite and S-Video on DVD(no HDD) on most of them at this price. They're just a DVD burner with a small chipset doing all the job. (Would cost around 70$ to get the parts)[Edited by DragonMaster on 2006-02-13 13:47:36]
