While the rest of the world must still wait, a few thousand folks were able to test the PlayStation 3 this weekend at Sony's Expo in Honolulu. Whether young or old, it seems the console struck a chord with many of the people there, and impressed them. So much, in fact, that even the extremely steep price tag isn't swaying some:

"The graphics are crazy, way better than the second one," said Doug Morrison, a 20-year-old University of Hawaii student. "It's more realistic. It's smoother. It doesn't have any glitches. I'm going to get one no matter what."
Only around 1 million of the consoles is expected to be available in the U.S. by the end of the year, which might make it difficult to satisfy the crowds. Two weeks remain before the official U.S. launch, giving Sony a slight edge over Nintendo in proving their console worthy.
