Re: Would you buy PSP if PS3 can play its games?

Nov 14, 2003
The PSP is meant for playing games on the run. What would be the point of getting downgraded games on the PS3 anyways.

How come no cell technology anymore? Didnt Sony spenda  bunch of money to get al the cell technology sht. Why would they scrap it after all that work. Is there an article on a site or somethign that says that. And why would PS3 and N5 use Power PC chips, those are from MACS arent they.

It was also posted on Yahoo yesterday. It seems to me that Sony didn't want to wait for cell any longer. That's not to say it won't go in computers and other electronics, but the next gen of game systems is coming in 05 and Sony doesn't want to be late. And Power PC chips are already in the GCN albiet modified, so this isn't a new idea... however using the top of the line in both is a new one as the GCN didn't have the top of the line. It seems from the two articles that MS may be the odd man out this time.

I think thats a bette ridea than the cell tech anyway. I think Sony is going to perfect the cell for now and use it in the PS4. I think for right now power over living breathing learning chips is better.

I don't believe it, I refuse to.  Maybe if it was a suit from Sony who said it, but it's a suit from IBM making the press release.  Nvidia did the same thing.  They anounced that they're working on a chip for PS3 and were in talks with Sony over a contract.  Sony has little to no intention of using a Nvidia chip because it would bring cost up and Sony would rather build the chip themsleves and save money.  Nividia just made the anouncement because they already lost deals with Nintendo and Microsoft to ATI.

,

Another thing is that Sony hasn't locked in 2005 for the PS3 release.  They're thinking about a '05 release, but if the PS2 is still selling strong, then why ruin a good thing with a new system.  So we might not see the PS3 untill 2006 or even 2007, which is when alot of people think the cell technology will be ready.

That Couldnt be true. PSP uses a UMD and PS3 uses a Blu-Ray Disc. The blu-ray disc is the same size as a DVD/CD while umd is the size of a minidisc. They will be able to hook up together, though, like GBA & Gamecube.

We aren't expecting to put the UMD in the disc tray.  We are talking about if the PS3 has a built in PSP Player.  Like the Game Boy Player is to the GameCube.
